Never lose a chance of saying a kind word." ― William Makepeace Thackeray, Vanity Fair

"Do you know what people really want? Everyone, I mean. Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one other person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who'd be kind to me. That's what people really want, if they're telling the truth." ― Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook
