is a fundamental law of nature.
Even tiny insects
survive by cooperating with each other.
Our own survival
is so dependent on the help of others
that a need for love
lies at the very core of our existence.
This is why
we need to cultivate
a genuine sense of responsibility
and a sincere concern
for the welfare of others.”
~ Dalai Lama
“It’s a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we’re on the way to there
Why not share.”
~ Bobby Scott and Bob Russell more
“You see, we are here,
as far as I can tell,
to help each other;
our brothers, our sisters,
our friends, our enemies.
That is to help each other
and not hurt each other.”
~ Stevie Ray Vaughan more
“Love me when I least deserve it,
because that’s when I really need it.”
~ Swedish Proverb
“Even the strongest and bravest must sometimes weep.
It shows they have a great heart,
one that can feel compassion for others.”
~ Brian Jaques more
“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.”
~ Pema Chödrön more
“Nothing is more important than empathy
for another human being’s suffering.
Not a career, not wealth,
not intelligence, certainly not status.
We have to feel for one another
if we’re going to survive with dignity.”
~ Audrey Hepburn
