Kindness, a Necessity of Life

Kindness is the highest form of intelligence. - Wayne Teasdale

Honestly, I'm not one who appreciates quotes. They touch certain people, but are usually geared more for the generalities of life. They hit home because we want so badly to be one of those people who is thought of as one who does those good, or important things. But too often our world of running at high speed all day every day, and not getting enough sleep helps to create the kind of people we really don't want to be - despite our very best intentions.

But this quote isn't encouraging or cajoling, it only makes a simple statement that in a world of high level genius, and great thinkers a simple action is truly the highest form of thought…the act of being kind to one another.
