Inspirational Kindness Quotes

This page is a collection of Kindness Quotes.

Little things you do can make a big difference in someone's life. It's easy and inexpensive to share a genuine compliment, be a strong shoulder to cry on, or an open non-judging ear for a friend to vent to.

Being kind involves being charitable, tender, and good. Spend some time each day doing good for others.  There's a lot of power in simple acts of kindness.
