compassion Quotes

By compassion we make others' misery our own, and so, by relieving them, we relieve ourselves also

Thomas Browne, Sr.

No man is a true believer unless he desireth for his brother that which he desireth for himself

Muhammad

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.

George Washington Carver

We often think of peace as the absence of war; that if the powerful countries would reduce their arsenals, we could have peace. But if we look deeply into the weapons, we see our own minds - our prejudices, fears, and ignorance. Even if we transported all the bombs to the moon, the roots of war and the reasons for bombs would still be here, in our hearts and minds, and sooner or later we would make new bombs. Seek to become more aware of what causes anger and separation, and what overcomes them. Root out the violence in your life, and learn to live compassionately and mindfully

Thich Nhat Hanh

Compassion is more important than intellect in calling forth the love that the work of peace needs, and intuition can often be a far more powerful searchlight than cold reason.

Betty Williams

Compassion is not a popular virtue

Karen Armstrong

What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence or lawlessness; but love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or they be black.

Robert F. Kennedy

The chemist who can extract from his heart's elements compassion, respect, longing, patience, regret, surprise, and forgiveness and compound them into one can create that atom which is called love

Khalil Gibran

Out of compassion I destroy the darkness of their ignorance. From within them I light the lamp of wisdom and dispel all darkness from their lives.

Bhagavad Gita

It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding.

Erma Bombeck

He who feels no compassion will become insane.

Hasidic Saying

There never was any heart truly great and generous, that was not also tender and compassionate.

Bishop Robert South

But if we have the energy of compassion and loving kindness in us, the people around us will be influenced by our way of being and living.

Thich Nhat Hanh

One love, one heart, one destiny.

Bob Marley
