The phrase “random kindness and senseless acts of beauty” is attributed to American journalist and author Anne Hebert. In 1993 Hebert co-authored a book with Margaret M Pavel by the same name. The text of the book takes a Haiku-like form in which violence is admonished and peaceful unity is promoted.
With the addition of the verb ‘practice’ to the beginning of the phrase, it has since become a pervasive inspirational quote.
