Word Origin Comics: What's So Kind About Kindness and is it Only for Your Kin?

"Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." - Henry James

There is no more hokey and maddening a tune than "Small, Small, World," especially when confined to a small vessel at Disneyland and having it hammered over and over again at you. Yet if you pause for a second and listen carefully to the lyrics, you will find a very simple but profound thought contained therein.

It's a world of laughter, a world of tears
It's a world of hopes and a world of fears
There's so much that we share that it's time we're aware

It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world

There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small world after all
It's a small, small world
