Compassion quotes

Frederick Buechner
Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.

Edward George Bulwer-Lytton
A good heart is better than all the heads in the world.

Thomas Merton
We are already one. But we imagine that we are not. And what we have to recover is our original unity. What we have to be is what we are.

Mairead Maguire
We frail humans are at one time capable of the greatest good and, at the same time, capable of the greatest evil. Change will only come about when each of us takes up the daily struggle ourselves to be more forgiving, compassionate, loving, and above all joyful in the knowledge that, by some miracle of grace, we can change as those around us can change too.

Bishop Desmond Tutu
I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of rights.

Albert Schweitzer
What does Reverence for Life say abut the relations between humanity and the animal world? Whenever I injury any kind of life I must be quite certain that it is necessary. I must never go beyond the unavoidable, not even in apparently insignificant things. The farmer who has mowed down a thousand flowers in his meadow in order to feed his cows must be careful on his way home not to strike the head off a single flower by the side of the road in idle amusement, for he thereby infringes on the law of life without being under the pressure of necessity.

Buddha
In seperateness lies the world's great misery, in compassion lies the world's true strength.

Haile Selassie
It is much easier to show compassions to animals. They are never wicked.
