Only kindness matters in the end.
Adam Rifkin stashed this in #kindness
To this day this remains my favorite Jewel song:
If I could tell the world just one thing, it would be that we're all okay.
And not to worry 'cause worry is wasteful and useless in times like these ...
I won't be made useless. I won't be idle with despair.
I will gather myself around my faith, for light does the darkness most fear.
In the end only kindness matters.
In the end only kindness matters...
This song inspired an answer of mine on Quora:
