Kindness, self-esteem and greatness


Great persons are able to do great kindnesses. —Miguel de Cervantes

There is overwhelming evidence that the higher the level of self-esteem, the more likely one will be to treat others with respect, kindness, and generosity.
                                                                    —Nathaniel Branden

If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.
                                                                    —George MacDonald

Kindness can become its own motive. We are made kind by being kind. —Eric Hoffer
