There’s kindness as an act of charity, and then there’s kindness as an art of living. Kindness as charity comes from a position of superiority: Let me, the more able one, help you, the less able one. A person practicing kindness as an art interacts human-to-human, listening for the gold in the other, offering the sort of surprising kindness that generates what David Brooks of The New York Times calls “laughter of the heart.”
