(sample quotations from the book)

It doesn't matter what size you are. It matters how big your heart is and how smart you are. — Freddy Adu, soccer player

I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out my nose. — Woody Allen, actor, producer, and director

One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest. — Maya Angelou, poet

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. — Melody Beattie, author

Kindness is a language the dumb can speak and the deaf can hear and understand. — Christian Nevell Bovee, attorney and author

My mother says to look for a man who is kind. That's what I'll do. I'll find somebody who's kinda tall and handsome. — Carolyn, age 8

Everyone is connected to everyone. And each of us has two kinds of families, both the one that you were born with and the one you create out of the people you care for and love. Life is about that sense of connection. No one really belongs to any one. No one is really yours or mine. We're just given a chance, the privilege, to look out for each other. — Anthony Dellaventura, character in Dellaventura TV show

Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A word of optimism and hope. A “you can do it” when things are tough. — Richard M. DeVos, co-founder of Amway

The greatest wisdom of all is kindness. — Dutch proverb

Gratitude is one of the least articulate of the emotions, especially when it is deep. — Felix Frankfurter, U.S. supreme court justice

There are three words I like to repeat to myself: glass half full. Just to remind myself to be grateful for everything I have. — Goldie Hawn, actress

For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone. — Audrey Hepburn, actress

True strength lies in gentleness. — Irish proverb

Three things in human life are important. Number 1: Be kind. Number 2: Be kind. Number 3: Be kind. — Henry James, novelist

Ask yourself: Have you been kind today? Make kindness your daily modus operandi and change your world. — Annie Lennox, singer

Forgiveness is unlocking the door to set someone free and realizing you were the prisoner. — Max Lucado, minister

If, therefore, you love those who love you, where is your loving kindness? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good only to those who do good to you, where is your goodness? For sinners also do the same. And if you lend only to him from whom you expect to be paid back, where is your favor? For sinners also lend to sinners, to be paid back likewise. But love your enemies, and do good to them, and lend and do not cut off anyone’s hope; thus your reward will increase and you will become sons of the Most High. — Luke 6:32-36
