An online daily putting "Hooray!" in your day
Kindness in Words
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. – Lao Tzu
You’ll find that I’m always living my life as an experiment. This past week was no exception.
I lead a pretty ordinary life in a bigger-than-life kind of place: Washington, DC. There are more suits per square inch than anywhere else on the planet. I’m pretty certain about that. It’s also clear that the nation’s capitol is “the Hollywood for ugly people.” Now this is not to suggest that we lack beauty, fashion and chic know-how, or that folks are somehow smudged by the grime of politics. No, it’s a place of power, ego and ambition. With that often comes a sense of smugness, jadedness, self-importance and insecurity. So when I encounter this every day on my commute, at the office, at lunch or on the streets, I wonder two things: 1) how can I make things better for this high-octane place, and 2) what will keep my soul intact? continued at THD Blog

THD Quotes (To Bolster Your Hooray)
The entire population of the universe, with one trifling exception, is composed of others.
Three things in human life are important:
The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind.
And the third is to be kind.
-- Henry James
You cannot do a kindness too soon,
for you will never know how soon it will be too late.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
You cannot always have happiness,
but you can always give happiness.
