“No kind action ever stop with itself. One kind action leads to another. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.” ~ Amelia Earhart; A 2nd Helping of Chicken Soup for the Indian Soul.
Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence. –Hal Borland, journalist (1900-1978)
