A Good Time to Hurry

I’m not one for rushing. I prefer to take things slowly. But I’m also aware I have only so much time and energy and that can’t hope to do everything.

Today’s quote speaks to me, not only because it’s about being kind, but because it recognizes we only have so much time in which to do anything. Being kind is a great use of our limited time.

Life is short, and we have never too much time for gladdening the hearts of those who are travelling the dark journey with us. Oh, be swift to love, make haste to be kind!

Henri Frederic Amiel

  1. I love this quote! What it is says to me is that love and kindness should be my “go to,” rather than fear and caution. It’s a great approach to any life situation and yet so simple it’s easy to overlook.

    1. Thanks. I really liked that he saw the pressure of our short time here as a reason to do more good.
