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. No act of kindness is ever wasted. Smile. Be Kind.
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.
Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk.
He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?”
“You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.”
What goes around comes around : An Inspirational Story on Kindness
*His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby boy. He dropped his tools and ran to the boy.*
*There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death*
*The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman’s sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.*
*’I want to repay you,’ said the nobleman. ‘You saved my son’s life.’*
*’No, I can’t accept payment for what I did,’ the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer’s own son came to the door of the family hovel.*
*’Is that your son?’ the nobleman asked.*
*’Yes,’ the farmer replied proudly.*
*’I’ll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything like his father, he’ll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.’ And that he did.*
*Farmer Fleming’s son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.*
*Years afterward, the same nobleman’s son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia.*
*What saved his life this time? Penicillin.*
*The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill .. His son’s name?*
*Sir Winston Churchill.*
*Someone once said: What goes around comes around.*
*Work like you don’t need the money.* *Love like you’ve never been hurt.* *Dance like nobody’s watching.* *Sing like nobody’s listening.* *Live like it’s Heaven on Earth.*
*Send this to everyone you consider A FRIEND.*Pass this on, and brighten some ones day….*
If you have to choose between being kind and being right, choose being kind and you will always be right.
