Kindness, Caring, Compassion

In the New York Times best seller based on the author’s convocation address at Syracuse University, George Saunders writes, “here’s something I know to be true: What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness. Those moments when another human being was there, in front of me, suffering and I responded, sensibly. Reservedly. Mildly.”

The author continued, “Or to look at it from the other end of the telescope: Who, in your life, do you remember most fondly, with the most undeniable feelings of warmth? Those who were kindest to you, I bet.”

And then, he offered, “It’s a little simplistic, maybe, and certainly hard to implement, but I’d say, as a goal in life, you could do worse than this: Try to be kinder.” -1
