Compassion

Walter Langley -  Never morning wore to evening but some heart did break 1894

Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness.
Know how to give without hesitation,
how to lose without regret,
how to acquire without meanness.
George Sand

Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair,
but manifestations of strength and resolution.
Kahlil Gibran

The thought manifests the word;
The word manifests the deed;
The deed develops into habit;
And habit hardens into character;
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let them spring forth from love
Born out of compassion for all beings.
As the shadow follows the body,
as we think, so we become.
Juan Mascaro

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.
Frederick Buechner

There is nothing so rewarding as to make people realize
that they are worthwhile in this world.
Bob Anderson

Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things,
man will not himself find peace.
Albert Schweitzer
