A man is known by the silence he keeps.
Oliver Herford

Patrick Swayze

  Kindness (10)
For I was an hungred,
and ye gave me meat: I was
thirsty, and ye gave me drink:
I was a stranger, and ye took
me in.

Naked, and ye clothed
me: I was sick, and ye visited
me: I was in prison, and ye
came to me.

Matthew 25:35-36, King James Version
Holy Bible

I have always heard it said, that to do a kindness to clowns, is like throwing water into the sea.
Cervantes

I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to these teachers.
Khalil Gibran

Making and preserving friends. Select some sound hearts. Be careful not to bruise them with unfeeling words. Take of milk of human kindness one heartful. Add to this plenty of tact. Warm the mixture with plenty of sympathy. Do not let it get too hot at first, lest it only ferment mischief. Knead with plenty of oil of unselfishness to make all smooth. Beware of jars (lovely wording). The mixture should be kept in a warm corner of the heart. Years only serve to improve the flavour of friends thus preserved.
Barry Humphries

Too seldom does the world pause to consider how much kinder and more humane business has become since women invaded the market-place.

Dalai Lama

The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic and self-complacent is erroneous; on the contrary it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant and kind. Failure makes people bitter and cruel.
W. Somerset Maugham

You can accomplish by kindness what you cannot by force.
Publilius Syrus

If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.
Mark Twain

  Kissing (10)
If you are ever in doubt as to whether or not you should kiss a pretty girl, always give her the benefit of the doubt.
Thomas Carlyle

Kisses are a better fate than wisdom.
E. E. Cummings

My heart to thy heart,
My hand to thine,
My lips to thy lips,
Kisses are wine ...

Paul Dunbar

For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.
Judy Garland

Oh, innocent victims of Cupid,
Remember this terse little verse;
To let a fool kiss you is stupid,
To let a kiss fool you is worse.

E. Y. Harburg

Give me a kiss, and to that kiss a score;
Then to that twenty, add a hundred more:
A thousand to that hundred: so kiss on,
To make that thousand up a million.
Treble that million, and when that is done,
Let's kiss afresh, as when we first begun.

Robert Herrick

Being kissed by a man who didn't wax his moustache was - like eating an egg without salt.
Rudyard Kipling

High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.
Christopher Morley

And blessings on the falling out
That all the more endears,
When we fall out with those we love
And kiss again with tears!

Alfred Tennyson

All the president is is a glorified PR man who spends his life flattering, kissing, and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway.

We know that in tough times, cynicism is just another way to give up, and in the military, we consider cynicism or giving up simply as forms of cowardice.
Jim Mattis
