One who knows how to show and to accept kindness will be a friend better than any possession.” – Sophocles

If you simply open your eyes and take time to notice you can find that kindness exists everywhere. Even though the world might seem overwhelmingly negative sometimes, the compassion of humans holds it all together. We would certainly perish without kindness as we need one another to survive.

Even if we are social creatures, we often forget about our reliance on one another in this individualistic society. We cannot survive without one another. The below photos will remind you that. Someone will always care about you even if you feel alone. Keep an open heart to the kindness of humanity as miracles happen when you least expect them.
