As the bus slowed down at the crowded bus stop, the Pakistani bus conductor leaned
from the platform and called out, "Six only!"  He counted on six passengers, rang the
bell, and then, as the bus moved off, called to those left behind:  "So sorry, plenty of
room in my heart - but the bus is full."  He left behind a row of smiling faces.
It's not what you do, it's the way that you do it.

Have you had a kindness shown?
Pass it on;

Let it wipe another's tears,
Til in Heaven the deed appears;
Pass it on.
-- Henry Burton

My uncle ordered popovers from the restaurant's bill of fare.
And, when they were served, he regarded them with a penetrating stare.
Then he spoke great words of wisdom, as he sat there on that chair;
"To eat these things," said my uncle, "You must exercise great care.
You may swallow down what's solid, but you must spit out the air!"
As you partake of the world's bill of fare, that's good advice to follow.
Spit out every bit of the hot air, and be careful what you swallow.
-- Ted Geisel (Dr. Seuss), from a commencement address
