    "a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment"

    “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”—Leo Buscaglia

    What should I insert instead if I want to delete the underlined part without affecting the meaning?
