Quite awhile back, I said I had lots of thoughts brewing about kindness, and that I'd post about those thoughts when I had time to write a real post.

But, thanks to Alicia at Studeo, the thoughts have been perfectly summed up in the following quote.

Thanks, Alicia. (You are too kind.)

"If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility."

~~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Thank you for sharing the quote. It is truly something always to remember.

I keep this Plato quote in mind but the Longfellow quote has more humanity.

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle"
