Compassion is the ultimate and most meaningful embodiment of emotional maturity. It is through compassion that a person achieves the highest peak and deepest reach in his or her search for self-fulfillment.
And as for the final sphere of love and friendship, I can only say it gets harder once the natural communities of college and hometown are gone... It takes work and commitment, demands toleration for human frailties, forgiveness for the inevitable disappointment and betrayals that come even with the best of relationships.
Doris Kearns Goodwin
Lyndon B. Johnson
When your brook dries up and disappointment comes your way, you do not necessarily need to assume that you did something wrong.
Henry Ward Beecher
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.
Rachel Joy Scott
Frequently people think compassion and love are merely sentimental. No! They are very demanding. If you are going to be compassionate, be prepared for action.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Personal Stories About ‘Compassion’
Tears From Joy And SorrowSubmitted by L.
As a geriatric home health nurse, I come across so many seniors having difficulties. I have been told by other nurses to be "more clinical" and not "spoil" my patients.

Alexander ESubmitted by Ron Erlandson
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. Well, last night as we were getting him ready for bed, we sat and said our prayers for the night. Afterwards, I was sitting with...

Vickie HSubmitted by Karen
My hero released me from fear and shame. Serving the public as a photo technician is no place for a toothless, 56 year old woman but that is where I was when Vickie found me. The absence of teeth in my mouth was painfully obvious to the finest dentist in our small community of Homer, Alaska. After she left the...

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.
