Mary Ann Evans
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.
Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It's the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.
Henry Ward Beecher
That best portion of a good man's life; His little, nameless, unremembered acts Of kindness and of love.

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.
