What are Vitamins for the Heart? Additionally to the physical help for us the spiritual support has likewise a big meaning. ‘Vitamins for the Heart’ is the title of series in which we publish new articles monthly. The Vitamins are compositions out of texts, which we are friendly allowed by the authors to present on our webpage. Because we had many positive reactions to the vitamins we also want to present them on our webpage and hope that they will also bring many others a big pleasure.

Vitamins for the Heart

Goodness in Action

A compilation:

Life becomes harder for us when we live for others, but it also becomes richer and happier. – Albert Schweitzer (1875–1965).

In life, you can never do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late. – Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882).

Goodness is love in action, love with its hand to the plow, love with the burden on its back, love following His footsteps who went about continually doing good. – James Hamilton.

Do not say that if the people do good to us, we will do good to them; and if the people oppress us, we will oppress them; but determine that if people do you good, you will do good to them; and if they oppress you, you will not oppress them. – Muhammed (570–632).

Conquer a man who never gives by gifts; subdue an untruthful man by truthfulness; vanquish an angry man by gentleness; and overcome an evil man by goodness. – Indian proverb.

It is not what they profess but what they practice that makes them good. – Greek proverbt.

The ideals which have always shone before me and filled me with the joy of living are goodness, beauty, and truth. To make a goal of comfort or happiness has never appealed to me; a system of ethics built on this basis would be sufficient only for a herd of cattle. – Albert Einstein (1875–1955).

Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, to all the souls you can, in every place you can, at all the times you can, with all the zeal you can, as long as ever you can. – John Wesley (1703–1791).

Resolve to make at least one person happy every day, and then in ten years you may have made three thousand, six hundred and fifty persons happy, or brightened a small town by your contribution to the fund of general enjoyment. – Sydney Smith (1771-1845).

The sun makes ice melt; kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate. – Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965).

Be kind. Remember that everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. – Harry Thompson (1960-2005).

A good deed is never lost.—He who sows courtesy, reaps friendship; he who plants kindness, gathers love. – Basil of Caesarea (c. 329-379).

Help thy brother’s boat across, and lo! Thine own has reached the shore. – Indian proverb.

Treat a man as he appears to be, and you make him worse. But treat a man as if he already were what he potentially could be, and you make him what he should be.. – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832).
