Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.
Whoever renders service to many puts himself in line for greatness - great wealth, great return, great satisfaction, great reputation, and great joy.
Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things that renew humanity.
The love of our neighbor in all its fullness simply means being able to say, What are you going through?
If a person seems wicked, do not cast him away. Awaken him with your words, elevate him with your deeds, repay his injury with your kindness. Do not cast him away; cast away his wickedness.
I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance.
The best part of life is not just surviving, but thriving with passion and compassion and humor and style and generosity and kindness.
Our task must be to widen our circle of compassion, to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.

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.
