It’s perfectly all right to be nice to people. It
isn’t a weakness at all; nothing weak about
being nice. In matter of fact, if you aren’t,
you’re in the soup.

You could say that the only times for which
you were suffering are those times when you
weren’t nice enough. When you weren’t kind enough
and when you weren’t unmean enough and those are
the only times from which you’re really suffering. …

The only thing you should ever be tough about
is insist that the other fellow ought to stand on
his own feet, too. And the only way you’ll ever
communicate that to him is to communicate it
to him in a very nice way. Then he’s liable to receive it. — L. Ron Hubbard
