Being and Doing – 26 February – Kindness

KIND words are the music of the world. They have a power which seems to be beyond natural causes.


IF you would fall into any extreme, let it be on the side of gentleness.  The human mind is so constructed that it resists vigour and yields to softness.


KIND encouragement is good, cutteth the root of evil.

Proverbial Philosophy.

THERE is power in the direct glance of a sincere and loving human soul, which will do more to dissipate prejudice and kindle charity, than the most elaborate arguments.”



These quotes are from ‘Being and Doing’ A selection of helpful thoughts from various authors arranged for daily reading.

Collected by Constance M Whishaw and first published in 1908 for members of the Being and Doing Guild whose object is to do all they can for the relief of suffering and misery.

Most of the writers are 19th Century Christians from Britain and Europe who were committed to living their faith through deeds as well as words – Being AND Doing.

For many years these words have kept me company and encouraged me on the journey of faith.  I hope they will encourage others also.
