If there’s one thing the world needs more of, it’s kindness. Whether it’s complimenting a co-worker, offering to help a complete stranger, or simply smiling at someone feeling down, a single act of kindness has the power to go a long way. We can’t control the world around us, but we can control the kind of energy we spread and the type of impact we have on others. Kindness quotes are a reminder that no matter what, choosing kindness is always the best path forward.

When you choose to express kindness instead of irritation, dismissal, or anger, you choose to spread positivity not only to others, but also to yourself. Knowing you helped someone, even if it was in a small way, will boost your own spirit and self worth.
