Life is not fair, but we can choose to be
fair humans even if life or other humans choose to be unfair to us.

We give because someone gave to us.
We give because nobody gave to us.

We give because giving has changed us.
We give because giving could have changed us.

In our concern for others, we worry less about ourselves.

Compassion is the spontaneous wisdom of the heart. It’s always with us. It always has been, and always will be. When it arises in us, we’ve simply learned to see how strong and safe we really are.

It does not matter whether you are a theist or atheist, what matters is sincerity, forgiveness, and compassion.

Compassionate action emerges from the sense of openness, connectedness, and discernment you have created.

We live in a time when science is validating what humans have known throughout the ages: that compassion is not a luxury; it is a necessity for our well-being, resilience, and survival.

Many of us think that compassion drains us, but I promise you it is something that truly enlivens us.

When we develop a right attitude of compassion and gratitude, we take a giant step towards solving our personal and international problems.

Compassion suits our physical condition, whereas anger, fear and distrust are harmful to our well-being. Therefore, just as we learn the importance of physical hygiene to physical health, to ensure healthy minds, we need to learn some kind of emotional hygiene.
