Jolt Quote XIV

Here are two quotes I find very fascinating, from the quotable Mark Twain.

(A) "Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. "

(B) "It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them."

I was jolted by the first quote to recognize how deep and wide acts of kindness can reach. One needs no University education or loads of experience to practice that.

The other quote tugged at my humourous rib on the folly of people's insistence of freedom defined according to their self-gratifying desires.
