When your brook dries up and disappointment comes your way, you do not necessarily need to assume that you did something wrong.
Hurt people, hurt people. That's how pain patterns get passed on, generation after generation after generation. Break the chain today. Meet anger with sympathy, contempt with compassion and cruelty with kindness. Greet grimaces with smiles. Forgive and forget about finding fault. Love is the weapon of the future.
Henry Ward Beecher
Compassion is the antitoxin of the soul: where there is compassion even the most poisonous impulses remain relatively harmless.
We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.
Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things that renew humanity.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong, because someday in your life, you will have been all of these.
George Washington Carver

When I look at my cousin Pierre, I am reminded of who I was in seventh grade. He is always in trouble and he doesn’t really talk to his family. “Sharon, I don’t know what to do anymore. He don’t listen to nobody.” says his older brother. “Don’t give up on him. That’s the worst thing you can do, especially when he...

A hero isn’t just a strong man in a cape that flies around saving people. A hero could be a volunteer worker, a teacher, or a family member. You may even be a hero to somebody.

So, I had an amazing experience with my 6 yr old son. We have a special saying that I try to instill in him. Simply "always be a good man." There is more, but that really says it all.

Considering that compassion is all about love and kindness to others, I'd say that it is exactly what I feel towards the giorls who work as shop assistants. Very often I put myself in their place and feel as if I was one of them.

Precisamos ser compassivos, e isso é um valor que vemos ser pouco praticado, mas cada um tem que fazer valer. We need to be compassionate, and this is a value that we see little practiced, but each one has to enforce.
