H is for…


My 2015 A to Z Challenge Theme is Quotes & Lines from Literature. Each day I will be posting a favorite quote or a few lines from well known short stories, poems or novels, with the letter of the first name as the A to Z. I’ll have a short write up with each quote, but each quote can also serve as a writing prompt for readers or myself.  I may write a poem or flash fiction based on that quote, or just throw it out there as inspiration. Hopefully you’ll join me in this adventure! I’ll try to include some of my favorite blog finds as I move through the challenge as well.


This is one of my favorite quotes. I can’t give where I originally sourced it, but since I found it on a search for quotes on kindness years ago, it has been a staple in my collection of quotes. 

On the theme of kindness, I would like to say thank you for the kind comments left as people are stopping by from the A to Z and also from regular readers as well. It is always greatly appreciated. ๐Ÿ˜€

As a bonus I am tossing out a few extra quotes on kindness. Then I will see you tomorrow for “I”. 

Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world. – Desmond Tutu

You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution. – Kahlil Gabrain

  1. Love these quotes CJ. Kindness is so needed in this stressful world. And I’m so proud of you for starting this challenge and writing every day! Way to go!!! I’m struggling to just look at emails & FB once a day while caring for our three grands. Kuddos!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks! Some days I definitely write more than others. My big projects are not moving forward so great, but I am at least stretching the muscles ๐Ÿ˜‰. How’s your writing going?
