I am surprised

I am NOT surprised to see how people invest their wealth in stocks, bonds, banks and property, but I am surprised at how much we underestimate the importance of investing an encouraging word, a kind gesture or any sort of help in another person.

Is that because the dividends of such investments are much more difficult to measure? How can we keep account of the number of smiles we cause in our lifetime or how a life has changed by one kind word uttered in a ‘hush’? How to measure the warmth of a hug?
