25 Quotes Revealing the Beauty in Kindness

For the past decade, MsDora has been sharing poetry, creative writing, positive quotes, and reflections online. Her aim is life enrichment.

A sense of beauty exudes from every act of kindness.

Beauty in Kindness

My friend was kind to an indigent individual who sometimes wandered about in her neighborhood. He was mentally challenged, and his language was cluttered. Once, after she helped him clean up and provided him with a change of clothing, he looked her in the eyes and said, “ You beautiful.”

Perhaps, that was his expression of thanks. Or, perhaps God was affirming through him that her real beauty had been revealed in her kind deed.

These 25 quotes acknowledge that a sense of beauty exudes from every act of kindness. Recipients of the kind deed experience it, and spectators admire it. Even with the memory of kindness comes a beautiful fragrance of love and care. More kindness, more beauty, more joy in our world!

I have to say, Ms. Dora, that my favorite quote is by Ellen G. White. When she speaks of "firmness, justice, purity, and integrity" the words ring true and touch my heart.

Yes, showing kindness is like being mercifull, though mercy is a higher state. I believe if more people will display kindness always, the world will be a better place.

Dora Weithers (author) from The Caribbean on June 27, 2021:

Devika, you're right. Kindness can also help us to reach the unfriendly and rebellious. It needs more practitioners.

MsDora Kindness is a value from inside to the outer side of one and you made that quite understood here. I think being kind builds character and is often ignored in society. Sometimes a lack of kindness destroys friendships.
