A few thoughts on kindness to uplift and inspire you to be your best.

For years, I have hoarded quotes on small slips of paper, in journals, and now in a spreadsheet. I find them in articles, books, poems, podcasts, and occasionally, conversations.

Something about the shape and formation of words can capture a thought, suspend it in time and place. You can hold onto the words and use them as a reminder of values and aspirations.
