“Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together.” – Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
A society bound together with kindness, is a society capable of accomplishing almost anything. All of us, each and every one of us are capable of kindness. When we discover a cause we truly believe in, our belief in the cause itself will compel us to action. When people come together in support of a common cause, almost anything is possible.
Maybe a golden chain represents goodness, or perhaps it does represent kindness, maybe it’s just very simply compassion, whatever it represents, we can rest assured it is symbolic of all that is possible when people come together to support something they believe in.
Dan Zadra’s quote: “Together we are always able to accomplish what none of us could achieve alone” has become one of my all time favorites. Why? It represents the true nature of the human spirit when we come together, united for a common purpose.
The human collective is a force capable of accomplishing almost anything when combined with kindness, hope, and aspiration. This collective consciousness has led to the achievement of many great advances in the world.
There are entire organizations founded on this simple principle. Foundations have been created to support the efforts of those who choose to make an overall larger contribution to society. The lifeblood of these organizations are the people who bring the “Mission” of the organization to life. The combined efforts of the entire “TEAM” from the person answering the phone, to the board of trustees, to the CEO; it’s the collective efforts of each of the individuals working together for a unified cause that gives the “cause” an opportunity to make a real difference.
Kindness is generally defined as the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate. Togetherness, defined by the Cambridge English Dictionary, is the pleasant feeling of being united with other people in friendship and understanding.
These two words linked with one another become the golden chain by which society is bound together. The difference a company or an organization makes in the world is often predicated on the Mission Statement of the organization. When a business entity is established based on real values, togetherness is almost a natural consequence of those values particularly when kindness is one of the elements that makes up the formulation of the values. Together, we accomplish more!
