Kindness according to Stephen Fry - interview for SplashLife

Stephen Fry's interview published at the post below is for SplashLife, a new activist international group to empower youth I discovered today after watching the last two minutes when he talks about kindness:
“I suppose the thing I’d most would have like to have known or be reassured about is that in the world is 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), just the better the world always is – and all the big words: virtue, justice, truth, are dwarfed by the greatness of kindness."
This is quite a statement specially when destinate to young people. I will take a look at SplashLife this week and post about it.
Kindness sounds like a bad word nowadays of something very far from our reality.
