Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day.
Sally Koch
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 6/25/07

You can learn to 'speak from the heart' by imagining a small mouth installed in your very own heart. When a challenging situation arises, consciously focus your mind down to that little mouth. Then, put your trust in the Great Spirit, release your personal fears and simply speak whatever words come out ... for they are the words which, from a higher perspective, need to be spoken and heard in that specific instance.
Chelle Thompson, Editor of Inspiration Line
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line1/29/07

To give and not expect anything in return; to give for no special time or season; to give, not for any particular recognition; to give, not for a substantial tax refund; to give for the sake of giving — often just between giver and receiver — has a life of its own — an elevated one.
Glaceta Honeyghan
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 9/18/06

Just a simple gesture of kindness — what possible difference could it make? Ah, there lies the mystery and the magic! Do we only give because we want an ego boost from knowing we "did good," or only when we get tangible proof that our gift will be put to "proper" use? The beauty of unconditional kindness is that we may NEVER know.
Chelle Thompson, Editor of Inspiration Line
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 8/28/06

The right word may be effective, but no word was ever as effective as a rightly timed pause.”
Mark Twain
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 7/24/06

Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light.
Norman B. Rice
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 7/10/06

Every gift which is given, even though it be small, is in reality great, if it is given with affection.
Pindar
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 12/5/05

Forgiving does not erase the bitter past. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember. We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future."
Lewis B. Smedes
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 11/7/05

Consider the hour glass; there is nothing to be accomplished by rattling or shaking; you have to wait patiently until the sand, grain by grain, has run from one funnel into the other.
John Christian Morgenstern
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 10/3/05

Many people talk a good story about their benevolence and generosity, however, when disasters happen, TRUTH is always revealed. The Divine Flow of The Universe is a Take AND Give process — if you don't invest, don't expect to receive returns.
Chelle Thompson, Editor of Inspiration Line
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 9/26/05

Helping people in need is a good and essential part of my life, a kind of destiny.
Princess Diana
Inspirational Quote from Special Report Hurricane Katrina

Fear grows out of the things we think; it lives in our minds. Compassion grows out of the things we are, and lives in our hearts.
Barbara Garrison
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 8/29//05

Consider the hour glass; there is nothing to be accomplished by rattling or shaking; you have to wait patiently until the sand, grain by grain, has run from one funnel into the other.
John Christian Morgenstern
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 10/3//05

It's important to give without expecting anything in return, rather than keeping a tally of whom we've helped and who has helped us. Silence and service go hand in hand. Random acts of kindness, particularly those anonymously accomplished, reflect a healthy non-attachment to deed or outcome.
Chelle Thompson, Editor of Inspiration Line
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 12/20/04

Not what we SAY about our blessings, but HOW WE USE them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving.
W. T. Parker
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 11/15/04

There are two primary choices in life; to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
—Denis Waitley, Motivational Speaker & Author
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 6/7/04

We never know when some small kindness will forever make a difference in the lives of total strangers. Continuously performing good deeds ... even without recognition ... will create a trail of miracles in our wake.
Chelle Thompson, Editor of Inspiration Line
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 6/7/04

It is one of those beautiful compensations of this life that no one can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Author, Poet & Philosopher (1803-1882)
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 12/22//03

Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us everyday.
Sally Koch, Volunteer Resources
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 9/8/03

When, to the best of our human ability, we can maintain a high level of consciousness, the lives of those around us are inexplicably enhanced. It's part of the 'ripple effect' which spreads out in far-reaching circles of positive energy and kindness.
Chelle Thompson, Editor
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 8/11/03

Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness."
George Sand, Pseudonym of Amandine Aurore Lucile, Prolific French Novelist (1804-1876)
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 8/25/03

A problem often arises when we love our neighbor as we love OURSELVES ... Oops, no wonder we can sometimes treat others with so little kindness and compassion. The solution lies where it always can be found: "WITHIN."
Chelle Thompson, Editor
Inspirational Quote from Inspiration Line 5/26/03

Appreciation can make a day — even change a life, Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.
Margaret Cousins

There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
— Edith Wharton

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
— Albert Pike

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness, and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again.
Og Mandino

Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.
Albert Schweitzer

Have you noticed in your past experience that your kind interpretations were almost always truer than you harsh one?
Lawrence G. Lovasik (The Hidden Power of Kindness)

If you stop to be kind, you must swerve often from your path.
Mary Webb (Precious Bane)

It is raining still... Maybe it is not one of those showers that is here one minute and gone the next, as I had so boldly assumed. Maybe none of them are. After all, life in itself is a chain of rainy days. But there are times when not all of us have umbrellas to walk under. Those are the times when we need people who are willing to lend their umbrellas to a wet stranger on a rainy day. I think I'll go for a walk with my umbrella.
Sun-Young Park

Kindness is more than deeds. It is an attitude, an expression, a look, a touch. It is anything that lifts another person.
C. Neil Strait

Kindness is never wasted. If it has no effect on the recipient, at least it benefits the bestower.
S. H. Simmons

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
— His Holiness The Dalai Lama

The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around. It's overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.
Leo Buscaglia

One kind word can warm three winter months.
— Japanese Proverb

Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
Benjamin Franklin

Try to make at least one person happy every day. … If you cannot do a kind deed, speak a kind word. If you cannot speak a kind word, think a kind thought. Count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a lifetime!
Lawrence G. Lovasik (The Hidden Power of Kindness)

We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
Mother Tesesa

When you carry out acts of kindness, you get a wonderful feeling inside. It is as though something inside your body responds and says, "Yes, this is how I ought to feel."
Harold Kushner

Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible — the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.
Virginia Satir

I consider my ability to arouse enthusiasm among men the greatest asset I possess. The way to develop the best that is in a man is by appreciation and encouragement.
Charles Schwab

I would rather be able to appreciate things I can not have than to have things I am not able to appreciate.
Elbert Hubbard
