Kindness is the quality of being friendly, generous, affectionate, having concern for others, of taking care of others—all without the expectation of being praised or rewarded. Kindness is valued by most religions, with some defining it as “pure love.” Kindness affects all of us, both those who receive it and those who practice it. Science has shown that giving to others rather than focusing on ourselves brings a long-term sense of well-being, and researchers have found that kindness is the most important predictor of life satisfaction.
