"Not one day in anyone's life is an uneventful day, no day without profound meaning, no matter how dull and boring it might seem, no matter whether you are a seamstress or a Queen, a shoeshine boy or a movie star, a renowned philosopher or a Down's Syndrome child. Because in every day of your life, there are opportunities to perform little kindnesses for others, both by conscious acts of will and unconscious example. Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives because kindness grows each times it's passed.''
I believe that all of the things you do for other people, you’re also doing for yourself. Life is like a bank account. Random acts of kindness, telling the truth, being loving, showing up for yourself and others—these are all deposits. Not being good to yourself or being unkind to others, letting your ego lead your choices—those are withdrawals. If we give more than we take, we progress. If we take more than we give, we regress.
