Many people believe that no matter what they do in life, it doesn't have any boomerang effect on them. However, some truly believe that every good and bad action has a reaction. Many of these individuals adhere to beliefs such as the Law of Attraction.

However, it doesn't always have to be attached to these types of beliefs. Treating people with kindness does increase your chances of receiving kindness back; doing favors for others does increase the chances of them doing so in the future, just by virtue of creating an increasing rapport with individuals.

While we shouldn't just be doing kind things for others in exchange for payback, it still proves that what we put there, we will most likely get back. Read these 43 following quotes to find out more.
