Kindness – From the Quote Box

There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness. — Dalai Lama

From: The Power of Kindness

In the political arena, kindness is the giving up of domination and vendetta, and the recognition of others’ points of view, their needs, and their history. Violence and war, on the other hand, appear more and more as remarkably gross and inefficient ways for resolving the world’s problems — a method that generates rage and thus new violence, chaos, waste of resources, suffering and poverty. — Piero Ferrucci, The Power of Kindness, The Unexpected Benefits of Leading a Compassionate Life
