Occasionally my dad sends me random emails from friends and people he meets. Here are some nice quotes from one he sent me over the weekend.

Compassion is the language the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
– Mark Twain

Kindness is in our power even when fondness is not.
– Henry James

Today I bent the truth to be kind,
and have no regret,
for I am far surer of what is kind
then I am of what is true.
– Robert Brault

Treat everyone with politeness,
even those who are rude to you,
not because they are nice
but because you are.

Never look down on anyone unless you are helping them up.

I always prefer to believe the best of everybody, it saves so much trouble.
– Rudyard Kipling

Don’t be yourself – be someone nicer.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy.
Even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

Love your enemies. It will confuse them greatly.
