‘Education of the mind without education of the heart is no education at all.’-Aristotle

Kindness University: The 'Antidote' to an Unkind World
Given the state of our world today: What if Universities have been Educating for compassion, empathy and kindness too?
Kindness and the Good Education
'Some say that my teaching is nonsense.
Others call it lofty but impractical.
But to those who have looked inside themselves,
this nonsense makes perfect sense.
And to those who put it into practice,
this loftiness has roots that go deep.
I have just three things to teach:
simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and in thoughts,
you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
You reconcile all beings in the world.'- Lao Tzu
Surveys after surveys are noting that Kindness is the single most important quality that pupils and students want in their teachers and lecturers; schools, colleges and universities.
