One of the best quotes I’ve read from a novel was in Anne Rice’s novel Servant of the Bones:
"Thirdly, be kind. Always, if you have a choice, be kind. Remember the poor, the hungry, and the miserable. Always remember the suffering, and those who need. The greatest creative power you have on earth, whether you are an angel, a spirit, or a man or a woman or a child is to help others . . . the poor, the hungry, the oppressed. To ease pain and give joy are your finest powers. Kindness is a human miracle, so to speak. It's unique to us humans, and our more developed angels or spirits, to be kind.” (The words of Zurvan to Azriel, Servant of the Bones. Part 2, Chapter 10)
Now is the best time to be kind. Let’s help the victims of Typhoon Yolanda.
