A little more kindness and a little less creed,

A little more giving and a little less greed;

A little more smile and a little less frown,

A little less kicking a man when he’s down;

A little more “we” and a little less “I,”

A little more laugh and a little less cry;

A few more flowers on the pathway of life,

And fewer on graves at the end of the strife.

The quality of mercy is not strained;

It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven

Upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed—

It blesseth him that gives, and him that takes.

–William Shakespeare
