Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.
That best portion of a good man's life; His little, nameless, unremembered acts Of kindness and of love.
Kind hearts are the gardens, Kind thoughts are the roots, Kind words are the flowers, Kind deeds are the fruits, Take care of your garden And keep out the weeds, Fill it with sunshine, Kind words, and Kind deeds.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Philo of Alexandria
Henry Ward Beecher
Mary Ann Evans
We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.
Our task must be to widen our circle of compassion, to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
Lyndon B. Johnson
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.

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.
