One of my favorite quotes from the book was given by the director of the school to the 5th and 6th graders who were graduating. He gives a quote by J.M. Barrie that is found in 'The Little Bird.' It says, 'Shall we make a new rule of life...always to try to be a little kinder than is necessary?' He then speaks of a quote from Christopher Nolon in, 'Under the Eye of the Clock.' In this quote a boy named Joseph realized he can recognize the face of God in those who showed him kindness and caring. The school director goes on to say this to his students.
"If every single person in this room made it a rule that wherever you are, whenever you can, you will try to act a little kinder than is necessary--the world really would be a better place. And if you do this, if you act just a little kinder than is necessary, someone else, somewhere, someday, may recognize in you, in every single one of you, the face of God."
If you're looking for a great book--this is one to read.
