You never can do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A little kindness from person to person is better than a vast love for all humankind.

Richard Demel

Very good quotes----right on the money, Anne. Thank you!

Last night I was leaving WM with more food for the A's when one of the sweet little greeters told me it was his 84th birthday. Another interested lady was standing nearby and before it was over, we sang Happy Birthday to him!!
He was so happy---no; we ALL were!

Then he told me he'd subbed for me once, years ago on my motor route when I used to deliver our daily newspaper after nursery school each day---I'd really jammed my wrist on a box----So funny---I KNEW his smile and features looked familiar!!!!!
What a sweet guy and what a great thing to happen at 10PM on a Sunday night..

(Are these ADS on GP along the margins of our computer screens getting larger/busier, or is it just me?
--just wondering....)

Great quotes, I like both of them.
Sometimes I'm surprised how people remember the small acts of kindness I've done. I don't remember what I did, but some people never forget.
kathyjane, yes I think the side ads are getting bigger. But take a look at the bottom of the post and see if you can see the ads by Google.
anneliese is quoting
Ralph Waldo Emerson and Richard Demel in the quote of the day, but google has another idea.
