I saw this quote on a little plaque at a coffee shop in Silverton, Oregon when we visited the Oregon Gardens. (I know. I know. I WILL post some pictures soon. I've just been in a whirlwind lately and haven't had a chance to do this yet. Something to look forward to.) Back to the quote. Be kinder than necessary. Imagine if each person did this, each city, state, religion, blogger, talk show host/hostess, banker, country, employer, employee, corporation...What if?!...
I checked further on the origins of this thought and found that Plato said this long ago "Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." So, Sparkers...listen to Plato and when you are being kinder than necessary to those you meet save a chunk of that same kindness for yourself.
Enjoy the journey!
