“I suppose the thing I’d most would have like to have known or be reassured about is that in the world, what counts more than talent, what counts more than energy or concentration or commitment or anything else is kindness. And the more in the world you encounter kindness, and cheerfulness (which is kind of its amiable uncle or aunt), the better the world always is – and all the big words: virtue, justice, truth, are dwarfed by the greatness of kindness.”

Stephen Fry
