#SOL16: Kindness

Where do you find inspiration?

Children’s literature is a great source of inspiration  and this Edutopia post has 15 additional quotes that you can visit/revisit.


This quote was the impetus for me to dig even deeper into “kindness”.

Do you volunteer?

Do you live a kind life?

How would we know?

What would be our “look fors”?

Kindness is a virtue that bears revisiting in the cold days of winter.  Too much “indoor time” on dreary, cloudy days may result in frayed tempers and unintended consequences from unkind words spoken in haste.

Random acts of kindness?

Pay it forward?

Actions? Words?

“No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.”

Nothing flashy or expensive required.  Simple actions. Kind words. A supportive message.

Inspire My Kids is a great source of “Kindness” Quotes for Kids and in fact includes Aesop’s quote above (without the graphics).

The first book that comes to mind is Jackie Woodson’s Each Kindness – specifically, regrets over missed opportunities to be kind.

In the anti-bullying world, Disney has “Choose Kindness”  and Random House Kids also has “Choose Kindness” supporting Wonder.

“No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.”

How can you “choose kind” today and every day?

How can you support “kindness” for every person every day?
