Newsletter #30 : Kind Words

A little word in kindness spoken,

A motion or a tear,

Has often healed the heart that’s broken,

And made a friend sincere.

A word – a look – has crushed to earth

Full many a budding flower,

Which, had a smile but owned its birth,

Would bless life’s darkest hour.

Then deem it not an idle thing,

A pleasant word to speak;

The face you wear, the thoughts you bring,

A heart may heal or break.

Daniel Clement Colesworthy

Wisdom comes from experience, and most of those experiences are painful and costly. If you can learn from someone else’s pain and expense, you are a wise person, indeed.

Jim Stovall, Wisdom for Winners

To know when to be generous and when firm – that is wisdom.

Elbert Hubbard
