It doesn't cost a darn thing to be nice to someone. Go and volunteer in a Nursing Home for a day Those people go out of their way to be nice to you. Well, most of them anyway. You leave there feeling so good knowing that you gave a little "nice" to someone".

"It is nice to be important-- but it is more important to be nice." (Yes!)

I first saw this quote on a framed plaque on the wall of a KFC restaurant in Alabama.
