On civilization and kindness

"Civilization is just a slow process of learning to be kind."
Charles L. Lucas
At least this is what I keep telling myself. It isn't always easy to see. Still, I'll keep looking. Hard. You?

Have to agree w/you.. Nowadays people don't take the time to be civil... I've noticed most are just concerned about themselves... To be civil you open yourself up to showing your tender side... Most don't or can't handle that... I know if I am being helpful/informative people are taken back... its a shame isn't it?

Back reading your blog after a long, long time... followed the link from Google+.
One of the better definitions of civilization, that one. Definitely better than the usual notion involving firearms and fast cars. This Charles guy is (was?) wise.
Sorry to hear about the comment spam, by the way. Sucks to be famous, eh?
