Q A motto that you try to live by?

A I will credit it to my dad because it was absolutely him. You had to do one, at least one, kind thing for someone every day that no one else knew about. And when I was a kid, if I told my dad about it, it didn’t count. You had to go out and do another good thing. It had to be something you got no credit for. And I try to do that every day. I think being kind is very important.

This is from an interview with Patrick Summers.

I’ve always thought this way. Not that I do something kind every day, but that telling someone about it then diminished or even canceled out the “something kind”. Is that silly? Maybe. But now I know I’m not the only one who thinks this way!
