Kind thoughts are rarer than either kind words or deeds. They imply a great deal of thinking about others. This in itself is rare. But they also imply a great deal of thinking about others without the thoughts being criticisms. This is rarer still. ~ Frederick William Faber
How many times have you seen a video played in reverse on TV? Up from the lake shoots the bicycle and rider, back past the sign: Bridge Out, to the starting point where the cyclist hops on before racing down the road.
These videos are played in reverse, highlighting with humor, the moment things went terribly wrong. The overly confident cyclist races off too quickly, fails to note the sign and sails over the brink.
I love what Frederick Faber says. Kind thoughts are rarer than either kind words or deeds in part because to have them we have to do a great deal of thinking about others, which, as he says, is rare enough. The second is rarer still: we also have to do a great deal of thinking about others without the thoughts being criticisms.
