Congratulations, by the Way – Some Thoughts on Kindness – George Saunders

I don’t remember where I heard about this book, but I’m glad I did. You can read it in an hour, and reflect on its wisdom for the rest of your life. This is the transcript of a convocation, a large gathering of people, in this case, very young people. His gentle but insistent way of bringing us to presence, kindness, generosity as human beings and in a world of competition, egos and carelessness is his soft-edged message. “What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness.” Even his book is delivered with kindness. Anyone who is young or ever was should read this book.

“The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.” - M. Scott Peck
