At all times, and for all times, it is important to remember that it is compassion that defines humans. For it is true that "compassion is the basis of morality." (Shopenhauer)
Compassion in our heart, mind and spirit.
In our heart:
"The dew of compassion is a tear." Lord Byron
In our mind:
"A human being is a part of the whole called by us 'Universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." Albert Einstein.
In our spirit:
"Only the development of compassion and understanding for others can bring us the tranquility and happiness we all seek." Dalai Lama
