Ripples v9.12: Kind Words!
3/18/07: a free splash from Paul & The Ripples Project
Don’t waste yourself in rejection,
nor bark against the bad,
but chant the beauty of the good.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson, submitted by Brett B, Madison WI
Make some ripples in the shape of Golden Arches
to welcome a 100 new ripplers from the
IT Solutions Team at McDonald’s!
Kind words do not cost much.
They never blister the tongue or lips.
Mental trouble was never known to arise from such quarters.
Though they do not cost much yet they accomplish much.
They make other people good natured.
They also produce their own image on men’s souls,
and a beautiful image it is.
-Blaise Pascal, submitted by Kelley G., Chester IL
We are going to make a super wave of kindness this week!
Imagine if every one of our 15,000 subscribers took time to ripple some KIND WORDS to unsuspecting friends, neighbors, classmates, co-workers, or even strangers. I dare you. Pick up the telephone, compose an email, or just walk out your door right now and send out a thank you, compliment, apology, or some other sincerely kind words and see how good it feels! Ooh, and tell that person to do the same!
