“Life is short…make haste to be kind!”




Added 8 hours later: oh yes, life can be short and so precious….may we all make haste to gladden each others’ hearts and to be kind, because we just never know how long our friends and loved ones have, as we travel the way together.

    There are many things we make haste for during an average day – appointments, meetings, schedules. But maybe at the top of that list should be, as Henri Amiel says, to make haste to be kind.



    • yes, we can choose when to make haste…and being kind might be the most precious and important…as you say…at the top of the list. One never knows…
      My husband Peter went for a golf trip to “your” state of Oregon for 2 nights…at Bandon Dunes, what a lovely spot…he just emailed photos…wow! Oregon is such a beautiful place…with so many nice people.

    Beautiful! Living with an open heart and being kind honors life.


  4. That’s a special way of phrasing that Marie…honoring life. Thank you for that.
    Oddly enough, several hours after posting this, I got a call from my husband, who was in Oregon, (gets home later tonight) that his brother died in Colorado… not unexpected, but still a shock. Isn’t that something that I had posted this image/quote that morning, without that awareness. A poignant thought.
