"Kindness is the essence of greatness and
the fundamental characteristic of the noblest men and women I have known. Kindness is a passport that opens doors and fashions friends. It softens hearts and molds relationships that can last lifetimes."

Treat them kindly, too.
When your heart is filled with love,
Others will love you.(music here)
