Happy World Kindness Day! Quotes to Inspire Kindness

According to the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation November 13th is World Kindness Day. And while it's good to choose kindness 365 days a year, it's nice to have one day reserved as a reminder. Even doing one tiny act of kindness can change your world and the world around you. To help get in the spirit, here are some quotes to inspire kindness. And while being kind to others, remember to be kind to one very important person -- YOU!

"Our human compassion binds us the one to the other - not in pity or patronizingly, but as human beings who have learnt how to turn our common suffering into hope for the future." -- Nelson Mandela

"There is nothing more truly artistic than to love people." -- Vincent Van Gogh
