Roger Ebert….Life Itself
“Kindness’ covers all of my political beliefs. No need to spell them out. I believe that if, at the end, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find it out.”
I like this quote as it is filled with simple truth and words and yet is Hope.
Being kind starts with being kind to ourselves so that we can then open our hearts to share it. The thought must move from the mind to the core of our spirit where it can grow and blossom and bear fruit and scatter to the cosmos.
