Be Kind, for Everyone You Meet Is Fighting a Hard Battle Sign by Barn Owl Primitives

“Be Kind, for Everyone You Meet is Fighting a Hard Battle”

Often attributed to Plato, this quote is thought to come from Scottish author Ian Maclaren — pseudonym of Rev. John Watson. Smile at a stranger. Help someone with their groceries. Bake cookies for a neighbor. Make dinner for a sick friend. Watch someone's kids so they can go to the gym. Pay for someone's coffee. Send someone a card for no reason.

Everyone You Meet Is Fighting a Hard Battle  

Think about that phrase again — “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” Ponder how keeping that in mind can make a difference in someone’s life. Kindness matters. Spread joy. Be happy.

This approach to life truly resonates with us, so we knew we had to create a sign featuring the “everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle” quote.

We knew this sign could be a great piece of meaningful wall décor. The sentiment it expresses is so important to remember in our everyday lives – that everyone you meet deserves your kindness. At a time when everyone seems to be so busy, it’s especially important to be mindful of others’ circumstances.

Does this sign speak to you? Would you like to learn more about it? Like all of our wooden handmade signs, we’ve imbued every one with love and personal touches. Each sign is distressed and antiqued for an aged, vintage finish, then a matte finish is applied to protect it. It comes ready to hang with a sawtooth hanger attached.
