The highest point of Christian experience is to press forward. It is a distinguishing trait in the character of every good man that he grows in grace. Grace in the heart as certainly improves and advances, as a tree thrives in a kindly and well watered soil.
The broken soldier, kindly bade to stay; Sat by his fire, and talked the night away, Wept o'er his wounds, or tales of sorrow done, Shoulder'd his crutch, and show'd how fields were won.Oliver Goldsmith
There was a natural instinct to abjure man as the blot on an otherwise kindly universe.thomas hardy
A union of indomitable resolution in the achievement of a given purpose, with patience and moderation in the policy pursued, and with kindly charity and consideration and friendliness to those of opposite belief , marks the very spirit in which we of to-day should approach the pressing problems of the present .theodore roosevelt
When you approach others in judgement they will be on the defensive. When you are able to approach them in a kindly, loving manner without judgement they will tend to judge themselves and be transformed.
And 'twould be a cruel thing, When her black eyes have raised desire, Should she not her bucket bring And kindly help to quench the fire.Matthew Prior
And said I that my limbs were old, And said I that my blood was cold, And that my kindly fire was fled, And my poor withered heart was dead, And that I might not sing of Love?
He sows June fields with clover, and the worldBroadcasts with little common kindnesses.The plain good souls He sends us, who fulfillLife's homely duties in the daily pathWith cheerful heart, ambitious of no moreThan to supply the wants of friend and kin,Yet serve God's higher love to human hearts;Giving a secret sweetness to the home,The hidden fragrance of a kindly heart,The simple beauty of a useful life,That never dazzles, and that never tires.samuel longfellow
Speak not too well of one who scarce will knowHimself transfigured in its roseate glow;Say kindly of him what is, chiefly, true,Remembering always he belongs to you;Deal with him as a truant, if you will,But claim him, keep him, call him brother still!
Human nature is so well disposed towards those who are in interesting situations, that a young person, who either marries or dies, is sure of being kindly spoken of.
The darkest night that ever fell upon the earth never hid the light , never put out the stars . It only made the stars more keenly, kindly glancing, as if in protest against the darkness .george eliot
'Do not expect help.' 'One should always hope.' 'Then hope for a handsome savage with kindly ways.'david gemmell
A critic recently described me, with deadly acuteness, as having 'a kindly dislike of my fellow-creatures.' Perhaps dread would have been nearer the mark than dislike; for man is the only animal of which I am thoroughly and cravenly afraid.George Bernard Shaw
I lie amid the Goldenrod, I love to see it lean and nod; I love to feel the grassy sod Whose kindly breast will hold me last, Whose patient arms will fold me fast! Fold me from sunshine and from song, Fold me from sorrow and from wrong: Through gleaming gates of Goldenrod I'll pass into the rest of God.
The kindly fruits of the earth.
Oh, blindness to the future! kindly giv'n, That each may fill the circle mark'd by heaven.Alexander Pope
Charity gently to hear, kindly to judge.
"The dictionary definition of a Christian is one who follows Christ; kind, kindly, Christ-like. Anarchism is voluntary cooperation for good, with the right of secession. A Christian anarchist is therefore one who turns the other cheek, overturns the tables of the moneychangers, and does not need a cop to tell him how to behave. A Christian anarchist does not depend upon bullets or ballots to achieve his ideal; he achieves that ideal daily by the One-Man Revolution with which he faces a decadent, confused, and dying world."
Therefore my age is as a lusty winter, Frosty, but kindly.william shakespeare
We love the kindly wind and hail, The jolly thunderbolt, We watch in glee the fairy trail Of ampere, watt, and volt.ogden nash
