My dear,

I’ve heard kind things said a million times over, but I would take one kind act in exchange for these millions any day.

The best kind of kindness is not that said by mouth, but by body toiled. (After all, actions speak louder than words.) The greatest kind of kindness is done quietly, for a stranger, out of sight, for nothing in return.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Falsely yours,
John Fitzgerald “Jack” Kennedy
