18 Quotes About Kindness the World Needs Right Now

There is so much that can be said about kindness, but much more important than learning about kindness is sharing it and receiving it. We believe that being kind isn’t just about being nice. It’s possible to do the “nice” thing without being sincere. To be truly kind, you must be able to show empathy, generosity, and thoughtfulness. As one of our quotes below says, being kind is about who YOU are, not who others are.

One of the greatest things about kindness is that your ability to be kind can grow with practice. It’s like a muscle that will increase when exercised, meaning that when you do something kind, you’re more likely to continue to do more kind things. Cool, right??

Kindness has actually been studied and, scientifically speaking, there are all kinds of benefits to our lives when we choose to be kind to others. It actually makes us healthier and increases our energy and lifespan! Seems like a good reason to find a way to be kind every single day!

But even without data, we all know how we feel when we’re around someone who shows us kindness. Maybe we know someone who always calls out the beautiful things in us when they see them. Or who never makes us feel bad for making a mistake. Or who says the right things when we’re feeling down, upset, or sad. 

A truly kind person can change our lives.
