Being kind vs. being nice

Posted on November 15, 2012


Being nice is what you do because you want others to like you. Because you are still an approval-seeking addict who has yet to learn how to kick some A.S.S.

Being nice is for pussies.  

Being kind, however, is what you do because you have suffered. Because you realize that all living beings are, in some way, probably suffering too and you feel compassion for them.

Being kind is only for the wise. It is the result of humbly acknowledging the dignity and humanity and struggle of all living things.
