“Be kind to unkind people. They need it the most”

"Be kind to unkind people. They need it the most” is a saying that has been printed on many images. “Be kind to unkind people. They probably need it the most” was printed in the syndicated newspaper feature “Pot-Shots” by Ashleigh Brilliant in January 1976.
