Words for your week: "Without love and kindness, life is cold, selfish, and uninteresting, and leads to distaste for everything. With kindness, the difficult becomes easy, the obscure clear; life assumes a charm and its miseries are softened. If we knew the power of kindness, we should transform this world into a paradise." Charles Wagner
