Only Kindness Matters

One finds the most beautiful, wise and poignant messages on tombstones.  As someone who frequents cemeteries for both inspiration and wildlife photo opportunities, I have read many epitaphs during my meanderings.  One of them strikes me as encapsulating everything that life should be about in just three words:  "Only Kindness Matters". 

Riches, beauty, intelligence, success are not what makes one happy or makes the world a better place - but kindness does.

Here are those three words immortalized in stone


  1. So true, and a pity that most people choose to put it at the bottom of the list not the top. Flighty xx
