“Kindness makes life more endurable. The burden of life presses heavily on most people. Many find life almost unbearable. Yet, to a virtuous man, sin alone is sufficient to make life unbearable.
We make ourselves more unhappy than other people make us. A great portion of this self-inflicted unhappiness arises from our sense of justice being so continually wounded by the events of life. Kindness steps forward to remedy this evil also, because kindness is the amiability of justice. Each kind action that you do works to restore the balance between right and wrong.”
