Compassion quotes by Paul Oxton
#1. Humankind must begin to learn that the life of an animal is in no way less precious than our own. #Quote by Paul Oxton
Compassion quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#2. Practicing a thousand yoga postures, doesn't make a person spiritual, nor does uttering "aum" or "hallelujah" a thousand times - what makes a person spiritual, is plain ordinary everyday act of kindness. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Compassion quotes by Dillon Burroughs
#3. True compassion sees each person as a brother or sister and acts accordingly. #Quote by Dillon Burroughs
Compassion quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#4. When people say that the values of Islam are compassion, tolerance, and freedom, I look at reality, at real cultures and governments, and I see that it simply isn't so. People in the West swallow this sort of thing because they have learned not to examine the religions or cultures of minorities too critically, for fear of being called racist. It fascinates them that I am not afraid to do so. #Quote by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Compassion quotes by Matthew Henry
#5. If you take a book into your hands, be it 'God's book, or any other useful good book,' rely on God to make it profitable to you. Do not waste time reading unprofitable books. When you read, do so not out of vain curiosity but with love for God's kingdom, compassion for human beings, and the intent to turn what you learn into prayers and praises. #Quote by Matthew Henry
Compassion quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#6. The fundamental question is how to develop and maintain compassion. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Compassion quotes by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
#7. One day a boy asked his father, "What is the value of this life?" Instead of answering, the father told his son, "Take this rock and go offer it at a market, however do not accept any offer and bring the rock back to me. If anybody asks the price, raise two fingers and don't say anything."The boy then went to the market and a man asked,"How much is this rock? I want to put it in my garden." The boy didn't say anything and raised two fingers, so the man said… "$2? I'll take it." And the boy went home and told his father, "A man at the market wants to buy this rock for $2." The father then said, "Son I want you to take this rock to the museum, and if you are asked the price, raise two fingers and don't say a word." The boy then went to the museum, and quickly a man wanted to buy the rock, The boy didn't say anything and raised two fingers and the man said… "$200? I'll take it." The boy was shocked and went running home with the rock in hand, "Father a man wants to buy this rock for $200." His father then said, "There is one last place I'd like you to offer this rock, take it to the precious stone store and show it only to the owner and don't say a word, if he asks the price raise two fingers." The son then went to the precious stone store and showed the rock to the owner. "Where did you find this?" The owner asked, "This is a most precious unpolished gem, one of the most valuable in the whole world, I must have it. What price would you take for it?" The boy didn't say anything #Quote by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
Compassion quotes by Colin Cotterill
#8. Honesty can be a dirty gift. It can muddy a sparkling stream of memories. #Quote by Colin Cotterill
Compassion quotes by Pirkei Avot
#9. Compassion is the feeling of sympathy which the pain of one being awakens in another; and the higher and more human the beings are, the more keenly attuned they are to re-echo the note of suffering, which, like a voice from heaven, penetrates the heart, bringing all creatures a proof of their kinship in the universal God. And as for man, whose function it is to show respect and love for God's universe and all its creatures, his heart has been created so tender that it feels with the whole organic world ... mourning even for fading flowers; so that, if nothing else, the very nature of his heart must teach him that he is required above everything to fe the brother of all beings, and to recognize the claim of all beings to his love and his beneficence.
Horeb, Chapter 17, Verse 125 #Quote by Pirkei Avot
Compassion quotes by Amit Ray
#10. To save the humanity compassionate AI is not an option but the destination. #Quote by Amit Ray
Compassion quotes by Karen Armstrong
#11. Religions have found that if you behave in a certain way, if you sort of perform certain rituals that expand your mind and make you realize that will make you realize and help you to seguey into transcendence and perform certain acts, adopt a certain lifestyle, you develop new capacities of mind and heart, just like the dancer, or the athlete that make you into a whole human being and principle after one of these disciplines right across the board in all of the faiths is compassion, the ability to feel with the other person. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Compassion quotes by Aravind Adiga
#12. He read me another poem, and another one - and he explained the true history of poetry, which is a kind of secret, a magic known only to wise men. Mr. Premier, I won't be saying anything new if I say that the history of the world is the history of a ten-thousand-year war of brains between the rich and the poor. Each side is eternally trying to hoodwink the other side: and it has been this way since the start of time. The poor win a few battles (the peeing in the potted plants, the kicking of the pet dogs, etc.) but of course the rich have won the war for ten thousand years. That's why, on day, some wise men, out of compassion for the poor, left them signs and symbols in poems, which appear to be about roses and pretty girls and things like that, but when understood correctly spill out secrets that allow the poorest man on earth to conclude the ten-thousand-year-old brain-war on terms favorable to himself. #Quote by Aravind Adiga
Compassion quotes by Eric Greitens
#13. If people can live through genocide and retain compassion, if they can take strength in pain, if they are able, still, to laugh, then certainly we can learn something from them. #Quote by Eric Greitens
Compassion quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#14. Compassion means to suffer with, but it doesn't mean to get lost in the suffering, so that it becomes exclusively one's own. I tend to do this, to replace the person for whom I am feeling compassion with myself. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Compassion quotes by Joseph Conrad
#15. The panes streamed with rain, and the short street he looked down into lay wet and empty, as if swept clear suddenly by a great flood. It was a very trying day, choked in raw fog to begin with, and now drowned in cold rain. The flickering, blurred flames of gas-lamps seemed to be dissolving in a watery atmosphere. And the lofty pretensions of a mankind oppressed by the miserable indignities of the weather appeared as a colossal and hopeless vanity deserving of scorn, wonder, and compassion. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Compassion quotes by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
#16. As Shantideva says, suffering has many good qualities because it purifies our negative karma, increases our renunciation and compassion, reduces our pride, and helps us to overcome our bad mental habits. If we think in this way we will feel that difficult circumstances are our best friends. When our mind is balanced in this way it becomes as stable as Mount Meru, and nothing can cause it to shake. #Quote by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Compassion quotes by Penn Jillette
#17. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint. #Quote by Penn Jillette
Compassion quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#18. The fundamental principle of morality which we seek as a necessity for thought is not, however, a matter only of arranging and deepening current views of good and evil, but also of expanding and extending these. A man is really ethical only when he obeys the constraint laid on him to help all life which he is able to succour, and when he goes out of his way to avoid injuring anything living. He does not ask how far this or that life deserves sympathy as valuable in itself, nor how far it is capable of feeling. To him life as such is sacred. He shatters no ice crystal that sparkles in the sun, tears no leaf from its tree, breaks off no flower, and is careful not to crush any insect as he walks. If he works by lamplight on a summer evening, he prefers to keep the window shut and to breathe stifling air, rather than to see insect after insect fall on his table with singed and sinking wings. #Quote by Albert Schweitzer
Compassion quotes by Shai Tubali
#19. Love and compassion are not tender but rather invincible powers of our being that channel tremendous cosmic waves. They do not need a secure environment to be revealed; they can be expressed proudly and openly even in the most strident and noisy marketplace and in the face of strong opposing forces. #Quote by Shai Tubali
Compassion quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#20. A good book is a lighthouse; a wise man is a lighthouse; conscience is a lighthouse; compassion is a lighthouse; science is a lighthouse! They all show us the true path! Keep them in your life to remain safe in the rocky and dark waters of life! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Compassion quotes by Chris Hedges
#21. The rebel, dismissed as impractical and zealous, is chronically misunderstood. Those cursed with timidity, fear, or blindness and those who are slaves to opportunism call for moderation and patience. They distort the language of religion, spirituality, compromise, generosity, and compassion to justify cooperation with systems of power that are bent on our destruction. The rebel is deaf to these critiques. The rebel hears only his or her inner voice, which demands steadfast defiance. Self-promotion, positions of influence, the adulation of the public, and the awards and prominent positions that come with bowing before authority mean nothing to the rebel, who understands that virtue is not rewarded. The rebel expects nothing and gets nothing. But for the rebel, to refuse to struggle, to refuse to rebel, is to commit spiritual and moral suicide. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Compassion quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#22. Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Compassion quotes by Muhammad
#23. Verily, God is Compassionate and is fond of compassion, and He gives to the compassionate what He does not give to the harsh. #Quote by Muhammad
Compassion quotes by Mary Baker Eddy
#24. The rich in spirit help the poor in one grand brotherhood, all having the same Principle, or Father; and blessed is that man who seeth his brother's need and supplieth it, seeking his own in another's good. #Quote by Mary Baker Eddy
Compassion quotes by Siyyid `Ali Muhammad Shirazi
#25. The Secret's message is to let go of all blame because it only destroys you, and to move forward with hope, love, compassion and kindness. #Quote by Siyyid `Ali Muhammad Shirazi
Compassion quotes by Dalai Lama
#26. The cultivation of compassion is no longer a luxury, but a necessity, if our species is to survive. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Compassion quotes by Ian McEwan
#27. There is a compassion in rational thought that is sometimes missing in religious conviction. #Quote by Ian McEwan
Compassion quotes by Christian Hunt
#28. Start a revolution. Love thy neighbor. #Quote by Christian Hunt
Compassion quotes by Leonard Sweet
#29. It would not do for the consumer to know that the hamburger she is eating came from a steer who spent much of his life standing deep in his own excrement in a feedlot, helping to pollute the local streams. Or that the calf that yielded the veal cutlet on her plate spent its life in a box in which it did not have room to turn around. Wendell Berry, "The Pleasures of Eating," What Are People For?, 1989 Jesus pioneered a relationship ethic based on compassion. Being a disciple means building relationships - with the Creator and with all creation and creatures. #Quote by Leonard Sweet
Compassion quotes by George Gissing
#30. Life, I fancy, would very often be insupportable, but for the luxury of self-compassion. #Quote by George Gissing
Compassion quotes by Dalai Lama
#31. The essence of any religion is good heart. Sometimes I call love and compassion a universal religion. This is my religion. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Compassion quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#32. Don't ever let anyone pull you so low as to hate them. We must use the weapon of love. We must have the compassion and understanding for those who hate us. We must realize so many people are taught to hate us that they are not totally responsible for their hate. But we stand in life at midnight; we are always on the threshold of a new dawn. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Compassion quotes by Robert Wagner
#33. Pets have more love and compassion in them than most humans. #Quote by Robert Wagner
Compassion quotes by Sara Miles
#34. Repentance means turning toward other human beings, our own flesh and blood, whenever they're oppressed, hungry, or imprisoned; it means acting with compassion instead of indifference. #Quote by Sara Miles
Compassion quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#35. In your heart must well that sympathy which soothes away all pains from the hearts of others. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Compassion quotes by Barack Obama
#36. We live in a culture that discourages empathy. A culture that too often tells us our principle goal in life is to be rich, thin, young, famous, safe, and entertained. #Quote by Barack Obama
Compassion quotes by Tara Brach
#37. In the Buddhist tradition, one who has realized the fullness of compassion and lives from compassion is called a bodhisattva. #Quote by Tara Brach
Compassion quotes by Panache Desai
#38. When you are embodying your Essential Self, any choice you make is the right one, in all scenarios. There is no room for complaints or uncertainty. #Quote by Panache Desai
Compassion quotes by John A. Keel
#39. The concept of a supermind running the universe objectively, without compassion, is not new. Several religions are built around it. Thinking of God in these terms is not heresy but is advanced theology. The old-time God - the big bearded man sitting on a throne in the sky - is dead. #Quote by John A. Keel
Compassion quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#40. Use your mind to solve problems for others; your heart to feel compassion for others; your mouth to speak for others; your hands to help others; your feet to visit others; your ears to listen to others, and your life to better others. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Compassion quotes by Kelly Minter
#41. I think we would do much better as a whole if we focused more compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience than on how all the non-Christians are ruining society with their bad behavior and politics. #Quote by Kelly Minter
Compassion quotes by Howard Schultz
#42. There is a word that comes to my mind when I think about our company and our people. That word is 'love.' I love Starbucks because everything we've tried to do is steeped in humanity.
Respect and dignity.
Passion and laughter.
Compassion, community, and responsibility.
Authenticity.
These are Starbucks' touchstones, the source of our pride.
Valuing personal connections at a time when so many people sit alone in front of screens; aspiring to build human relationships in an age when so many issues polarize so many; and acting ethically, even if it costs more, when corners are routinely cut
these are honorable pursuits, at the core of what we set out to be. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Compassion quotes by Laozi
#43. See others as yourself. See families as your family. See towns as your town. See countries as your country. See worlds as your world. #Quote by Laozi
Compassion quotes by Perry G. Downs
#44. Helping people to know God and to be obedient to him is perhaps the greatest gift we can bestow. Understood in this way, Christian education can be be one of the most compassionate ministries of the church. #Quote by Perry G. Downs
Compassion quotes by Cynthia Bourgeault
#45. To mourn is to touch directly the substance of divine compassion. #Quote by Cynthia Bourgeault
Compassion quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#46. Compassion grows in us when we know how the energy of love is available all around us. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Compassion quotes by Donald O'Donovan
#47. Compassion goes out looking for suffering, scouring the earth for poverty and misery and pain, the same way the cops look for criminals. #Quote by Donald O'Donovan
Compassion quotes by Carl Safina
#48. Saving the world requires saving democracy. That requires well-informed citizens. Conservation, environment, poverty, community, education, family, health, economy- these combine to make one quest: liberty and justice for all. Whether one's special emphasis is global warming or child welfare, the cause is the same cause. And justice comes from the same place being human comes from: compassion. #Quote by Carl Safina
Compassion quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#49. We must learn to regard people less in the light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Compassion quotes by Sylvia Boorstein
#50. Being silent for me doesn't require being in a quiet place and it doesnt mean not saying words. It means, "receiving in a balanced, noncombative way what is happening." With or without words, the hope of my heart is that it will be able to relax and acknowledge the truth of my situation with compassion. #Quote by Sylvia Boorstein
Compassion quotes by Novak Djokovic
#51. It is my goal to win every time I play. But on the other hand, I also seek a balance of compassion and respect for the other players. I understand that everyone goes through difficult times, either mentally or physically, to cope with their life, to live the sport. #Quote by Novak Djokovic
Compassion quotes by Anonymous
#52. 19Once again you will have compassion on us. You will trample our sins under your feet and throw them into the depths of the ocean! + #Quote by Anonymous
Compassion quotes by James Conlon
#53. Compassion is the litmus test and culminating touchstone of a spirituality of Earth. #Quote by James Conlon
Compassion quotes by Bill Nighy
#54. One is that you legislate according to natural selection, the other is that you don't. You have compassion, you try and help people. It's a fundamental clash between two people who happen to love each other, which complicates everything. #Quote by Bill Nighy
Compassion quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#55. By practicing meditation we establish love, compassion, sympathetic joy & equanimity as our home. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Compassion quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#56. Compassion is the fellow-feeling of the unsound. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Compassion quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#57. Peace, however, is not merely a gift to be received: it is also a task to be undertaken. In order to be true peacemakers, we must educate ourselves in compassion, solidarity, working together, fraternity, in being active within the community and concerned to raise awareness about national and international issues and the importance of seeking adequate mechanisms for the redistribution of wealth, the promotion of growth, cooperation for development and conflict resolution. 'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God', as Jesus says in the Sermon on the Mount #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Compassion quotes by Aletheia Luna
#58. While we can offer our guidance and a shoulder to cry on, our responsibility does not lie in fixing others and their problems. We need to draw the line when it comes to giving help and remember that other people must ultimately take responsibility for their happiness, not us. #Quote by Aletheia Luna
Compassion quotes by Milan Kundera
#59. True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come to the fore only when its recipient has no power. Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which is deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Compassion quotes by Joseph F. Girzone
#60. I think most decent people would be horrified at what happens today, even in our enlightened country. There are still mean, self-righteous Pharisees, who have a sick need to punish others whose troubled lives they can never begin to understand, much less feel compassion for. #Quote by Joseph F. Girzone
Compassion quotes by Prem Jagyasi
#61. Make it a point to live your life with respect and compassion – not only for others but also for yourself. That's the only way you will actually learn about yourself and the world around you. That's the only way to make the world a better place for the present and the future. #Quote by Prem Jagyasi
Compassion quotes by Kate McGahan
#62. When you're hurting, sometimes it hurts even more when someone can't give you what you need. At these times it's important to remember that a man can only have as much compassion for another as he has for himself. Everyone is doing the best they can. #Quote by Kate McGahan
Compassion quotes by David Foster Wallace
#63. But if you've really learned how to think, how to pay attention ... it will actually be within your power to experience a crowded, loud, slow, consumer-hell-type situation as not only meaningful but sacred, on fire with the same force that lit the stars-compassion, love, the sub-surface unity of all things. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Compassion quotes by Conor Oberst
#64. I came upon a doctor who appeared in quite poor health. I said, 'There's nothing that I can do for you that you can't do for yourself.' He said, 'Oh yes you can. Just hold my hand. I think that that would help.' So I sat with him a while then I asked him how he felt. He said, 'I think I'm cured.' #Quote by Conor Oberst
Compassion quotes by Ilona Andrews
#65. They're fanatics. It's like expecting humanity from a falling rock. It's not going to have a fit of compassion and not crack your skull open. #Quote by Ilona Andrews
Compassion quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#66. These four qualities are among the most beautiful and powerful states of consciousness we can experience. Together they are called in Pali, the language spoken by the Buddha, the brahma-viharas. Brahma means "heavenly." Vihara means "abode" or "home." By practicing these meditations, we establish love (Pali, metta), compassion (karuna), sympathetic joy (mudita), and equanimity (upekkha) as our home. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Compassion quotes by Debasish Mridha
#67. Compassion brings us closer to each other. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Compassion quotes by Isaac Of Nineveh
#68. Just as a strongly flowing fountain is not blocked up by a handful of earth, so the compassion of the Creator is not overcome by the wickedness of his creatures. #Quote by Isaac Of Nineveh
Compassion quotes by Amos Van Der Merwe
#69. However like all little animals, it has to be nurtured and fed. It needs humour, interest, joy, love, compassion and a healthy bit of charity. It loves the unexpected and the unpredictable. It enjoys new challenges and experiences. Good wine makes it jump around a bit, good food makes it happy. Soft light make it dewy-eyed, happy memories light up its eyes. Good champagne is its preferred liquid. #Quote by Amos Van Der Merwe
Compassion quotes by Wordions
#70. When someone is hurt and
we hear ourselves saying
"I don't understand, why"
PAUSE
At the pause, ask "What am I missing here ?"
At the pause, stop judging, stop reacting,
get curious and believe their hurt state
At the pause, tap into their heart and mind.
Now see how this pause transforms the conversation. #Quote by Wordions
Compassion quotes by Suzie Abels
#71. Lead with your beautiful & equisite heart Dear Ones as it will lead you to the TREASURE that is YOU. #Quote by Suzie Abels
Compassion quotes by Osho
#72. You are feeling sad? Befriend it. Have compassion for it. Sadness also has a being. Allow it, embrace it, sit with it, hold hands with it. Be friendly. Be in love with it. Sadness is beautiful! Nothing is wrong with it. Who told you that something is wrong in being sad? In fact, only sadness gives you depth. Laughter is shallow; happiness is skin-deep. Sadness goes to the very bones, to the marrow. Nothing goes as deep as sadness. #Quote by Osho
Compassion quotes by Nikki Rowe
#73. Don't suffocate your spirit for the lessons that were only passing through spring. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Compassion quotes by Erma Bombeck
#74. Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain love for one another. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Compassion quotes by Brene Brown
#75. Above all else, I want you to know that you are loved and lovable. You will learn this from my words and actions--the lessons on love are in how I treat you and how I treat myself.

I want you to engage with the world from a place of worthiness. You will learn that you are worthy of love, belonging, and joy every time you see me practice self-compassion and embrace my own imperfections.

We will practice courage in our family by showing up, letting ourselves be seen, and honoring vulnerability. We will share our stories of struggle and strength. There will always be room in our home for both.

We will teach you compassion by practicing compassion with ourselves first; then with each other. We will set and respect boundaries; we will honor hard work, hope, and perseverance. Rest and play will be family values, as well as family practices.

You will learn accountability and respect by watching me make mistakes and make amends, and by watching how I ask for what I need and talk about how I feel.

I want you to know joy, so together we will practice gratitude.

I want you to feel joy, so together we will learn how to be vulnerable.

When uncertainty and scarcity visit, you will be able to draw from the spirit that is a part of our everyday life.

Together we will cry and face fear and grief. I will want to take away your pain, but instead I will sit with you and teach you how to feel it.

We #Quote by Brene Brown
Compassion quotes by Aurora Rose Reynolds
#76. I vow to love you unconditionally, without hesitation. I will encourage you, trust you, and respect you. As a family, we will create a home filled with learning, laughter, and compassion. I promise to be your biggest fan, your partner in crime, and the person you can always depend on. From the moment we met, you have owned me, and I will love you until I take my last breath. I will work every day to make now into always. With these words, and all the love in my heart, I marry you and bind your life to mine. #Quote by Aurora Rose Reynolds
Compassion quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#77. In a world plagued with commonplace tragedies, only one thing exists that truly has the power to save lives, and that is love. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Compassion quotes by Emily Page
#78. He taught me that it's okay to be a star, but to never forget that there are millions of other stars out there waiting for someone to recognize them for what they are - to treat people as if they too are important, special, and full of light. #Quote by Emily Page
Compassion quotes by Amit Ray
#79. In every crisis, confusion and doubt, take the higher path - the path of patience, alertness, courage, understandings and love. Fears and uncertainties are temporary. In the higher path the light of happiness comes soon. #Quote by Amit Ray
Compassion quotes by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
#80. Everything I am longing for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of my abundance - will surely be mine... when I am prepared to receive ALL with an open and Thankful heart. #Quote by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
Compassion quotes by Steve Goodier
#81. What if today you gave yourself permission to be outrageously kind? What if you extended as much good will and kindness as you can possibly muster to every person you meet? And what if you did it with no thought of reward? I'm sure of one thing: it will be a day you will never regret. #Quote by Steve Goodier
Compassion quotes by Philip Chard
#82. Higher states of consciousness correlate strongly with attributes like compassion, forgiveness, generosity and kindness. The more one is self-aware and other-aware, and the greater one's connection with the spiritual, the more likely one will be a force for good in our world. #Quote by Philip Chard
Compassion quotes by Stu Weber
#83. David Eckman is a man you can trust ... His teaching resonates with God's wisdom and compassion #Quote by Stu Weber
Compassion quotes by William Penn
#84. If we are but sure the end is right, we are too apt to gallop over all bounds to compass it; not considering the lawful ends may be very unlawfully attained. #Quote by William Penn
Compassion quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#85. For compassion a human heart suffices, but for full and adequate sympathy, with joy, an angel's only. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Compassion quotes by Dalai Lama
#86. There is a common perception that compassion is, if not actually an impediment, at least irrelevant to professional life. Personally, I would argue that not only is it relevant, but that when compassion is lacking, our activities are in danger of becoming destructive. This is because when we ignore the question of the impact our actions have on others' well-being, inevitably we end up hurting them. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Compassion quotes by Penn Jillette
#87. It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people yourself is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral, self-righteous, bullying laziness. #Quote by Penn Jillette
Compassion quotes by Mary Doria Russell
#88. John Henry Holliday didn't have a mother to love him when he was grown, so I have taken him for my own. My fondest hope for Doc is that it will win for him the compassion and respect I think he deserves. #Quote by Mary Doria Russell
Compassion quotes by Criss Jami
#89. So, how close are love and genius, really? We know that they are both mentioned far more than lived. #Quote by Criss Jami
Compassion quotes by Nurudeen Ushawu
#90. Be soft, don't let the world make you hard. Be gentle, don't let the people make you difficult. Be kind, don't let the realities of life steal your sweetness and make you heartless. #Quote by Nurudeen Ushawu
Compassion quotes by Dalai Lama
#91. The real test of compassion is not what we say in abstract discussions but how we conduct ourselves in daily life. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Compassion quotes by Anne Lamott
#92. Mercy means compassion, empathy, a heart for someone's troubles. It's not something you do – it is something in you, accessed, revealed, or cultivated through use, like a muscle. We find it in the most unlikely places, never where we first look. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Compassion quotes by Gerard De Marigny
#93. To me, empathy and compassion are among the bravest of emotions ... and faith, the bravest of convictions. #Quote by Gerard De Marigny
Compassion quotes by Joanna Macy & Chris Johnstone
#94. By strengthening our compassion, we give fuel to our courage and determination. #Quote by Joanna Macy & Chris Johnstone
Compassion quotes by Ellen Goodman
#95. Welfare is ... the victim of national compassion fatigue. #Quote by Ellen Goodman
Compassion quotes by Bryant McGill
#96. Evolve your understanding of success from the outer realm of control, materialism, and ego, to the inner realm of surrender, spirituality, and compassion. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Compassion quotes by Criss Jami
#97. It's easy to make a mess when you're not the one who has to clean it up. #Quote by Criss Jami
Compassion quotes by MaryJanice Davidson
#98. I looked up. Mom looked down at me with the compassion/practicality combo that was her trademark. #Quote by MaryJanice Davidson
Compassion quotes by Ryan Henry Ward Artist
#99. Compassion is born from the imagination. To have the desire to be compassionate, you have to imagine a world that's better than the one you live in. #Quote by Ryan Henry Ward Artist
Compassion quotes by Gary Zukav
#100. You are only as powerful as that for which you stand. Do you stand for more money in the bank and a bigger house? Do you stand for an attractive mate? Do you stand for imposing your way of thinking upon others? These are the stands of the personality seeking to satisfy its wants. Do you stand for perfection, for the beauty and compassion of each soul? Do you stand for forgiveness and humbleness? These are the stands of the personality that has aligned itself with its soul. This is the position of a truly powerful Personality. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Compassion quotes by Tom Barrett
#101. As we live our human lives, let us be like the water. Let us be conscious of the flow. Let us not forget the great ground of being that draws us on through life. Let us live in a knowing hope, aware that all being is in transition, that all movement is back to the source. Let us treat those around us as reminders of our illusionary individuality. We know that they are us and we are them connected in ways we cannot fathom. Let us grow in compassion for all beings, for they share our journey. #Quote by Tom Barrett
Compassion quotes by Elizabeth Tambascio
#102. You can sit with us.
You can live beside us.
You can play your music.
You can listen to mine.
We can dance together.
We can share our food.
We can keep an eye on each other's kids.
We can teach each other new languages.
We can respect traditions.
We can build new ones.
You can ask for a cup of sugar.
You can ask for directions.
You can tell me when things are hard.
You can tell me when beautiful things happen.
We can listen to stories.
We can disagree.
We can agree.
We can come to understandings.
You can wear what you want.
You can pray as you feel compelled to.
You can love who you want.
You can sit with us. #Quote by Elizabeth Tambascio
Compassion quotes by Eben Alexander
#103. How do we get closer to this genuine spiritual self? By manifesting love and compassion. Why? Because love and compassion are far more than the abstractions many of us believe them to be. They are real. They are concrete. And they make up the very fabric of the spiritual realm. In order to return to that realm, we must once again become like that realm, even while we are stuck in, and plodding through, this one. #Quote by Eben Alexander
Compassion quotes by Karen Armstrong
#104. Compassion dervies from the Latin patiri and the Greek pathein, meaning "to suffer, undergo or experience." So "compassion" means "to endure [something] with another person," to put ourselves in somebody else's shoes, to feel her pain as though it were our own, and to enter generously into his point of view. That is why our hearts, discover what gives us pain, and then refuse, under any circumstance whatsoever, to inflict that pain on anybody else. Compassion can be defined, therefore, as an attitude of principled, consistent altruism. #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Compassion quotes by Rajneesh
#105. Buddhas have a strength which is not of this world. Their strength is totally of love ... Like a rose flower or a dewdrop. Their strength is very fragile, vulnerable. Their strength is the strength of life not of death. Their power is not of that which kills; their power is of that which creates. Their power is not of violence, aggression; their power is that of compassion. #Quote by Rajneesh
Compassion quotes by Seanan McGuire
#106. Time is the alchemy that turns compassion into love... #Quote by Seanan McGuire
Compassion quotes by Nhat Hanh
#107. We must look deeply into the nature of our volition to see whether it is pushing us in the direction of liberation from suffering and toward peace and compassion, or in the direction of affliction and misery. What is it that we really want deep in our heart? Is it money, fame, power? Or is it finding inner peace, being able to live life fully and enjoy the present moment? #Quote by Nhat Hanh
Compassion quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#108. West couldn't simply leave the man like this, he didn't have it in him.

"Goodman Heath," he said as he approached, and the peasant looked up at him, surprised. He fumbled for his hat and made to rise, muttering apologies.

"No, please, don't get up." West sat down on the bench. He stared at his feet, unable to look the man in the eye. There was an awkward silence. "I have a friend who sits on the Commission for Land and Agriculture. There might be something he can do for you…" He trailed off, embarrassed, squinting up the corridor.

The farmer gave a sad smile. "I'd be right grateful for anything you could do."

"Yes, yes, of course, I'll do what I can." It would do no good whatsoever, and they both knew it. West grimaced and bit his lip. "You'd better take this," and he pressed his purse into the peasant's limp, calloused fingers. Heath looked at him, mouth slightly open. West gave a quick, awkward smile then got to his feet. He was very keen to be off.

"Sir!" called Goodman Heath after him, but West was already hurrying down the corridor, and he didn't look back. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Compassion quotes by Bret Easton Ellis
#109. Everything failed to subdue me. Soon everything seemed dull: another sunrise, the lives of heroes, falling in love, war, the discoveries people made about each other. The only thing that didn't bore me, obviously enough, was how much money Tim Price made, and yet in its obviousness it did. There wasn't a clear, identifiable emotion within me, except for greed and, possibly, total disgust. I had all the characteristics of a human being - flesh, blood, skin, hair - but my depersonalization was so intense, had gone so deep, that the normal ability to feel compassion had been eradicated, the victim of a slow, purposeful erasure. I was simply imitating reality, a rough resemblance of a human being, with only a dim corner of my mind functioning. Something horrible was happening and yet I couldn't figure out why - I couldn't put my finger on it. #Quote by Bret Easton Ellis
Compassion quotes by Bono
#110. David was "a star, the Elvis of the Bible." An unusually for such a rockstar with his lust for power, lust for women, lust for life, he had humility of one who knew his gift work harder than he ever would. #Quote by Bono
Compassion quotes by Kelly Martin
#111. Your outer world mirrors your inner world. How you view your outer world is how you view you, your inner world, the 'you' that needs your care, your attention, your compassion and your love. #Quote by Kelly Martin
Compassion quotes by Rasheed Ogunlaru
#112. We're merely one tree with various types, shapes and sizes of leaves that all wave differently in the breeze #Quote by Rasheed Ogunlaru
Compassion quotes by Zara D. Green
#113. Here's the truth: It is not Grown to expect a relationship to provide what you are not committed to providing for yourself. The capacity for others to love you can never exceed the love you demonstrate for yourself. Furthermore, you don't attract what you want in relationships, but what you are. So if you want financial security in a relationship, you need to commit to providing that for yourself. If tender, loving treatment is what you desire, then you should be giving that to yourself as a single person. If you seek forgiveness, compassion and emotional safety in a relationship, you must be committed to requiring that of yourself in single life. If you want a relationship rich with fun, joy and adventure, then that is exactly the life you should be pursuing as a single person. On the other hand, if you are desperate and unhappy as a single person, you are neither qualified nor prepared for a healthy relationship and you will attract and choose anything but. #Quote by Zara D. Green
Compassion quotes by Sri Avinash Do
#114. Be a ruler of your mind and a servant of your heart. #Quote by Sri Avinash Do
Compassion quotes by Glenn Beck
#115. It just goes to show you that the "R" and the "D" are meaningless - what really matters is whether someone believes in the spirit and unending compassion of the individual, or instead in the destructive power of the collective. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Compassion quotes by Amaka Imani Nkosazana
#116. Do not allow another person to set you back. Continue moving forward not backwards. When someone pulls you back, be like the arrow to a bow and spring forth greater than ever. And, what they thought would be your disadvantage, you turn it into your advantage. #Quote by Amaka Imani Nkosazana
Compassion quotes by Gautama Buddha
#117. Understand the suffering of worldly existence.
Abandon its causes of ignorance and selfishness.
Practice the path of meditation and compassion.
Awaken from suffering within Great Peace. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Compassion quotes by Lennox Lewis
#118. The danger of a closed mind is that it can also leave good things like love, compassion and reason on its outside. #Quote by Lennox Lewis
Compassion quotes by Chris Hedges
#119. We've bought into the idea that education is about training and "success", defined monetarily, rather than learning to think critically and to challenge. We should not forget that the true purpose of education is to make minds, not careers. A culture that does not grasp the vital interplay between morality and power, which mistakes management techniques for wisdom, which fails to understand that the measure of a civilization is its compassion, not its speed or ability to consume, condemns itself to death. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Compassion quotes by Benjamin B. Ferencz
#120. Nuremberg taught me that creating a world of tolerance and compassion would be a long and arduous task. And I also learned that if we did not devote ourselves to developing effective world law, the same cruel mentality that made the Holocaust possible might one day destroy the entire human race. #Quote by Benjamin B. Ferencz
Compassion quotes by Christina Baker Kline
#121. I get the sense that my abandonment, and the circumstances that brought me to them, matter little to them, compared to the need I might fill in their lives. - (Niamh/Dorothy) #Quote by Christina Baker Kline
Compassion quotes by Ashton Kutcher
#122. Women have a level of outward compassion that a lot of men don't necessarily have. Guys feel as deeply as women, but they don't share it as much. #Quote by Ashton Kutcher
Compassion quotes by Hope Bradford
#123. Death is like giving birth. Birth can be painful. Sometimes women die from giving birth. However, when the baby is born, all that pain (that was endured) vanishes in an instant. Love for that tiny baby makes one forget the pain, the fear. And as I've said before, love between mother and child is the highest experience, the closest to divine love.
You might wonder about the parallel I'm making between birth and death. But I say to you, the fear and pain accompanying an awful death is over quickly. Beyond that portal one is suddenly in the light, in oneness and bliss ... Just as a woman heals rapidly after childbirth and then is able to fall in love with her baby, those who pass over also are able to fall in love with a new life."-Kuan Yin (From "Oracle of Compassion: the Living Word of Kuan Yin #Quote by Hope Bradford
Compassion quotes by Simone Weil
#124. Compassion directed toward oneself is true humility. #Quote by Simone Weil
Compassion quotes by Nicholas Roe
#125. Whereas Hunt recommended universal charity, Keats, feeling himself 'in a Mist', relied on a knowing passivity: 'Men should bear with each other - there lives not the Man who may not be cut up, aye hashed to pieces on his weakest side'. #Quote by Nicholas Roe
Compassion quotes by Mike Murdock
#126. Those who unlock your compassion are those to whom you've been assigned. #Quote by Mike Murdock
Compassion quotes by Gary Zukav
#127. I don't have a definition of God, because I've never really understood that word. People have different understandings of it and it's caused a great deal of conflict. If I had to say what would my definition of God be, if I were going to use that word, I would say that this universe has layers upon layers upon layers of compassion and wisdom beyond ours. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Compassion quotes by Brene Brown
#128. Healthy-striving self-talk: "I want this for me. I want to feel better and be healthier. The scale doesn't dictate if I'm loved and accepted. If I believe that I'm worthy of love and respect now, I will invite courage, compassion, and connection into my life. I want to figure this out for me. I can do this. #Quote by Brene Brown
Compassion quotes by Tonmoy Acharjee
#129. Life is like an empty canvas, that can be painted with love, compassion, kindness and behold everyone with its beauty. #Quote by Tonmoy Acharjee
Compassion quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#130. Mind you, o braveheart sibling of mine, courage, conscience and compassion, these are the real Trinity of a civilized society. One who has these three flowing in one's veins, is the one who can build a real world of peace, love and harmony. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Compassion quotes by Amit Ray
#131. Future Artificial Intelligence (AI) is more about human emotions, compassion, values and elimination of human sufferings. #Quote by Amit Ray
Compassion quotes by Dalai Lama
#132. If you resort to violent methods because the other side has destroyed your monastery, for example, you then have lost not only your monastery, but also your special Buddhist practices of detachment, love, and compassion. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Compassion quotes by Samson Raphael Hirsch
#133. If someone is too tired to give you a smile, leave one of your own, because no one needs a smile as much as those who have none to give. #Quote by Samson Raphael Hirsch
Compassion quotes by Boris Johnson
#134. Nothing excites compassion, in friend and foe alike, as much as the sight of you ker-splonked on the Tarmac with your propeller buried six feet under. #Quote by Boris Johnson
Compassion quotes by Erica Goros
#135. Unfortunately we treat others as we treat ourselves. We should try being genuinely kind to ourselves and the rest will come naturally, like a Platinum Rule. #Quote by Erica Goros
Compassion quotes by Karen Armstrong
#136. And so, one of the reasons why I started my Charter for Compassion, was to bring the Golden Rule back to the center of religion and morality and not put other's secondary goals, less demand goals, into the forefront #Quote by Karen Armstrong
Compassion quotes by Jean-Yves Leloup
#137. The depth of our compassion is proportional to the depth of our living. (65) #Quote by Jean-Yves Leloup

#139. Compassion can be learned through example #Quote by Renae A. Sauter
Compassion quotes by George Michael
#140. Because of the media, the way the world is perceived is as a place where resources and time are running out. We're taught that you have to grab what you can before it's gone. It's almost as if there isn't time for compassion. #Quote by George Michael
Compassion quotes by Giovanni Boccaccio
#141. To have compassion for those who suffer is a human quality which everyone should possess, especially those who have required comfort themselves in the past and have managed to find it in others. #Quote by Giovanni Boccaccio
Compassion quotes by Jefferson Bethke
#142. The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep lowing concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. #Quote by Jefferson Bethke
Compassion quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
#143. Our greatest fulfillment lies in giving ourselves to others. #Quote by Henri J.M. Nouwen

Compassion quotes by Mimi Novic
#145. We all need to be far more gentler with each other.
And realise that some people's heart's injure with far more ease than others and dance to a quieter music. #Quote by Mimi Novic
Compassion quotes by Janet Parshall
#146. As the mother of six, Karen Santorum knows the power of stories to shape and mold the nature of our children. In Everyday Graces, Karen has complied a treasure chest of tales that helps us raise the next generation of children into adults of kind compassion. Everyday Graces is a must for families that desire their children to become people of character. #Quote by Janet Parshall
Compassion quotes by Catherine Nagle
#147. My hope is that after you read Imprinted Wisdom, you will be able to see your blessings, to count more of them that you already have. Realize your thoughts touch holy ground. Action with compassion for others will heal all your sorrow. And prayer will lift your veil of tears. Give more of everything than you take. Know that the true spirit of God lies within your heart. #Quote by Catherine Nagle
Compassion quotes by Arthur Rubinstein
#148. Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back. #Quote by Arthur Rubinstein
Compassion quotes by Fannie Barrier Williams
#149. The hearts of Afro-American women are too warm and too large for race hatred. Long suffering has so chastened them that they are developing a special sense of sympathy for all who suffer and fail of justice. #Quote by Fannie Barrier Williams
Compassion quotes by James C. Dobson
#150. Now I need to speak directly and with compassion to those who have already pushed open the door of premarital sex. The monster has been released. You've lost your virginity and may have been sexually active for years. Perhaps you've been carrying a load of guilt for doing what you knew was wrong. #Quote by James C. Dobson
Compassion quotes by Ellen Bass
#151. If You Knew

What if you knew you'd be the last
to touch someone?
If you were taking tickets, for example,
at the theater, tearing them,
giving back the ragged stubs,
you might take care to touch that palm
brush your fingertips
along the lifeline's crease.

When a man pulls his wheeled suitcase
too slowly through the airport, when
the car in front of me doesn't signal,
when the clerk at the pharmacy
won't say thank you, I don't remember
they're going to die.

A friend told me she'd been with her aunt.
They'd just had lunch and the waiter,
a young gay man with plum black eyes,
joked as he served the coffee, kissed
her aunt's powdered cheek when they left.
Then they walked half a block and her aunt
dropped dead on the sidewalk.

How close does the dragon's spume
have to come? How wide does the crack
in heaven have to split?
What would people look like
if we could see them as they are,
soaked in honey, stung and swollen,
reckless, pinned against time? #Quote by Ellen Bass
Compassion quotes by Amit Ray
#152. Meditation is not thinking about the image of a person of the past. It is more about focusing and channelizing the power of your emotions and imagination for fulfilling a bigger dream - the dream that will bring more life, energy peace, happiness and meaning to you and the society. #Quote by Amit Ray
Compassion quotes by James Martin
#153. It is impossible to experience a person's life, or to be compassionate, if you do not listen to the person or if you do not ask questions. #Quote by James Martin
Compassion quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#154. Mindfulness is about love and loving life. When you cultivate this love, it gives you clarity and compassion for life, and your actions happen in accordance with that. #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Compassion quotes by Anthony T. Hincks
#155. Wisdom helps us understand that love, knowledge and compassion are what keep the fabric of the universe intact. #Quote by Anthony T. Hincks
Compassion quotes by Alan Arkin
#156. All I can say is if the part doesn't delight me in some way, or I can't feel any compassion for it, I just can't do it. #Quote by Alan Arkin
Compassion quotes by Stephen Lovegrove
#157. Tolerance is the essential starting point for compassion. That's why it is so emphasized in our society right now. In a world full of discrimination, prejudice, and marginalization, people need to be taught to tolerate people who are different. Tolerance, at the political, social, and cultural level, will prevent us from choosing speech or actions that harms other people groups, which is a definite win. #Quote by Stephen Lovegrove
Compassion quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#158. No matter what we think we should do, I don't think you can coerce yourself into loving your neighbor - or your boss - when you can't stand him. But if you try to understand your feelings of dislike with mindfulness and compassion, being sure not to forget self-compassion, you create the possibility for change. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Compassion quotes by Barbara Coloroso
#159. When we use punishment, our children are robbed of the opportunity to develop their own inner discipline-the ability to act with integrity, wisdom, compassion, and mercy when there is no external force holding them accountable for what they do. #Quote by Barbara Coloroso
Compassion quotes by Marco Vassi
#160. They moved into an embrace with the loving knowledge only possible between those who have fought many sexual wars together and have learned compassion through necessity. Without ever having articulated it as such, they shared a deep respect for the difficulties that man and woman share in any attempt at joining together. #Quote by Marco Vassi
Compassion quotes by Laozi
#161. Supreme good is like water. Water greatly benefits all things, without conflict. It flows through places that people loathe. Thereby it is close to the Way. #Quote by Laozi
Compassion quotes by Dalai Lama
#162. A good motivation is what is needed: compassion without dogmatism, without complicated philosophy; just understanding that others are human brothers and sisters and respecting their human rights and dignities. That we humans can help each other is one of our unique human capacities. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Compassion quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#163. Some people have compassion for even strangers, but not for their own bodies. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Compassion quotes by William Maxwell
#164. They looked at me, and were so full of delight in the pleasure they were giving me that some final thread of resistance gave way and I understood not only how entirely generous they were but also that generosity might be the greatest pleasure there is. #Quote by William Maxwell
Compassion quotes by Rai Aren
#165. When I look into the eyes of our animal friends, I feel as if it's the universe itself looking back at me, a profoundly beautiful, deep, and knowing presence. I sense this universal spirit is waiting to see how I will treat them, judging my worthiness of the gift of their companionship. I feel their beauty and purity in the very depths of my soul, and in the process of caring for them and trying to protect them from harm, my heart fills with a love that feels infinite… #Quote by Rai Aren
Compassion quotes by Oscar Levant
#166. I've changed, I'm nice to people and I'm not so self-centered. What I'm trying to do now is think of the other person. The only trouble is, I've found that the other person thinks only of himself. #Quote by Oscar Levant
Compassion quotes by Michael Greger
#167. I think of veganism humbly and holistically. It's about taking personal responsibility in a world so full of needless suffering. It's challenging one's self to open one's eyes and question society's assumptions and habits. It's about critical thinking and compassion and how we would like to see the world evolve. #Quote by Michael Greger
Compassion quotes by Sharon Gannon
#168. To cultivate compassion, try to remember that others are doing the best they can, just like you, and that when someone does something abusive, they are getting something that they feel is positive from the experience. #Quote by Sharon Gannon
Compassion quotes by Jonathan Kozol
#169. We should invest in kids like these," we're told, "because it will be more expensive not to." Why do our natural compassion and religious inclinations need to find a surrogate in dollar savings to be voiced or acted on? Why not give these kids the best we have because we are a wealthy nation and they are children and deserve to have some fun while they are still less than four feet high? #Quote by Jonathan Kozol
Compassion quotes by Meryn G. Callander
#170. While each of us must walk this path alone, we need not do so without the empathy, the encouragement and the love of others who are travelling, or have travelled, this terrain - or those who having lived life long and deep and can meet us there, with wisdom and compassion. #Quote by Meryn G. Callander
Compassion quotes by Sylvia Boorstein
#171. Steadfast benevolence, sustained by the wisdom that anything other than benevolence is painful, protects the mind from all afflictions. #Quote by Sylvia Boorstein
Compassion quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#172. There have been many people for whom limitations, failure, loss, or pain in whatever form turned out to be their greatest teacher. It taught them to let go of false self-images and superficial ego-dictated goals and desires. It gave them depth, humility and compassion. It made them more real. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Compassion quotes by David A. Cooper
#173. A spiritual retreat is medicine for soul starvation. Through silence, solitary practice, and simple living, we begin to fill the empty reservoir. This lifts the veils, dissolves the masks, and creates space within for the feelings of forgiveness, compassion, and loving kindness that are so often blocked. #Quote by David A. Cooper
Compassion quotes by Jessica Valenti
#174. Idea at play here is that of "morality." When young women are taught about morality, there's not often talk of compassion, kindness, courage, or integrity. There is, however, a lot of talk about hymens #Quote by Jessica Valenti
Compassion quotes by Thomas Paine
#175. Compassion, the fairest associate of the heart. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Compassion quotes by Nancy Pearcey
#176. Only by demonstrating genuine compassion will Christians earn the right to offer a biblical alternative. #Quote by Nancy Pearcey
Compassion quotes by Gary Zukav
#177. Only choices made in love are compassionate. There are no exceptions. Do you have the courage to act with an empowered heart without attachment to the outcome? If not, you have no ability to give or experience compassion. That is the shocking truth. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Compassion quotes by Richard Steele
#178. Compassion does not only refine and civilize human nature, but has something in it more pleasing and agreeable, than what can be met with in such an indolent happiness, such an indifference to mankind, as that in which the stoics placed their wisdom. As love is the most delightful passion, pity is nothing else but love softened by a degree of sorrow: In short, it is a kind of pleasing anguish, anguish as well as generous sympathy, that knits mankind together, and blends them in the same common lot. #Quote by Richard Steele
Compassion quotes by Michal Ajvaz
#179. It is true that nothing here makes any sense, but this is no great misfortune; I learned from the islanders that sense is not of any particular importance, that its presence may even disrupt the clean lines of certain pictures and cast a cloud over their fine light, while laments on the absurdity of being struck me as self-indulgent and objectionable even before my stay on the island. Once you get a little used to a terrain cleansed of sense, you realize that there is amusement enough to be had here, and that only in its emptiness can the magic crystals of beauty originate. And in this space something is revealed: the silent dignity of people, animals, plants and objects, that is able to stir graciousness, compassion and reverence. #Quote by Michal Ajvaz
Compassion quotes by Rory Freedman
#180. Compassion and mercy are important, period. It doesn't matter who's at our receiving end, but we need to be flexing those muscles. It's not mutually exclusive: If you have compassion for children starving in Africa, it doesn't mean you can't have compassion for adults in Africa or animals that are being tortured and abused. #Quote by Rory Freedman
Compassion quotes by Vandana Shiva
#181. Seeding the future when possible extinction stares us in the face; seeding freedom when the freedoms of all beings are being closed for the limitless freedom of the 1% to exploit the earth and people, to manipulate life and our minds: this calls for a quantum leap in our imaginations, our intelligences, our capacity for compassion and love, as well as our courage for creative nonviolent resistance and non-cooperation with a system that is driving us to extinction. #Quote by Vandana Shiva
Compassion quotes by Paul Goodman
#182. No good has ever come from feeling guilty, neither intelligence, policy, nor compassion. The guilty do not pay attention to the object but only to themselves, and not even to their own interests, which might make sense, but to their anxieties. #Quote by Paul Goodman
Compassion quotes by Daniel Goleman
#183. True compassion means not only feeling another's pain but also being moved to help relieve it. #Quote by Daniel Goleman
Compassion quotes by Auliq Ice
#184. With all the strength; Love encompasses compassion, determination, tolerance, endurance, support, faith and acceptance of whom you love. #Quote by Auliq Ice
Compassion quotes by Ashley Mae Hoiland
#185. It is Christlike to assume that people are trying to do the best they can. I know I am a better person when I cultivate empathy, and I have been blessed for having received it from others. As members of the body of Christ, we are each responsible for creating a space not only of acceptance, but of joy and encouragement for our sisters and brothers and the stories they are working so hard to live well. #Quote by Ashley Mae Hoiland
Compassion quotes by Markus Zusak
#186. A GUIDED TOUR OF SUFFERING: To your left, perhaps your right, perhaps even straight ahead, you find a small black room. In it sits a Jew. He is scum. He is starving. He is afraid. Please - try not to look away. #Quote by Markus Zusak
Compassion quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#187. Accept your parents' behavior with compassion, without needing to react to it, that is to say, without personalizing it. Be aware also of your own unconscious assumptions or expectations that lie behind your old, habitual reactions to them. 'My parents should approve of what I do. They should understand me and accept me for who I am.' Really? Why should they? The fact is they don't because they can't. Their evolving consciousness hasn't made the quantum leap to the level of awareness yet. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Compassion quotes by Paul Gitwaza
#188. Compassion‬ is medicine to a wounded heart. When we show compassion to those who are suffering we preach Jesus in another way. #Quote by Paul Gitwaza
Compassion quotes by Vineet Raj Kapoor
#189. To make your Opinion Count,
you have to do something more
than just making Money. #Quote by Vineet Raj Kapoor
Compassion quotes by Starhawk
#190. Patriarchy values the hard over the soft; the tough over the tender; punishment, vengeance, and vindictiveness over compassion, negotiation, and reconciliation. The 'hard' qualities are linked to power, success, and masculinity - and exalted. The 'soft' qualities are identified with weakness, powerlessness, and femininity - and denigrated. #Quote by Starhawk
Compassion quotes by Ashley Young
#191. If you can't find it in your own heart to be compassionate look in someone else's before giving up on love altogether. #Quote by Ashley Young
Compassion quotes by Amit Ray
#192. Artificial Intelligence is the core technology to build a compassionate society. #Quote by Amit Ray
Compassion quotes by Unknown
#193. Neither a thought nor an emotion, it is rather the steady conscious realization of reality's transience. It is the ground for wisdom and freedom and the protector of compassion and love. While some may think of equanimity as dry neutrality or cool aloofness, mature equanimity produces a radiance and warmth of being. The Buddha described a mind filled with equanimity as "abundant, exalted, immeasurable, without hostility and without ill-will. #Quote by Unknown
Compassion quotes by Kim Stanley Robinson
#194. The people are suffering. Relieving people's poverty ought to be handled as though one were rescuing them from fire, or saving them from drowning. One cannot hesitate. #Quote by Kim Stanley Robinson
Compassion quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#195. A beautiful antelope panting under the fangs of a tiger, a defenceless ox, groaning beneath the butcher's axe, is a spectacle, which instantly awakens compassion in a virtuous and unvitiated breast. Many there are, however, sufficiently hardened to the rebukes of justice and the precepts of humanity, as to regard the deliberate butchery of thousands of their species, as a theme of exultation and a source of honour, and to consider any failure in these remorseless enterprises as a defect in the system of things. The criteria of order and disorder are as various as those beings from whose opinions and feelings they result. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Compassion quotes by Douglas Pagels
#196. Don't scrutinize people with a microscope; view them from a comfortable distance. And allow some room for compassion in the space the lies between you. #Quote by Douglas Pagels
Compassion quotes by Terrance Hayes
#197. Patricia Smith is one of the best poets around and has been for a long time. Her Blood Dazzler is full of capacious soul and formal inventiveness: the compassion and artfulness necessary to capture the tragedies and Tragedy of Katrina. Smith is herself a storm of beautiful, frightening talent. Her words will wash you or wash you away. I consider this new book a major literary event. #Quote by Terrance Hayes
Compassion quotes by Bernie Siegel
#198. God wants us to know that life is a series of beginnings, not endings. Just as graduations are not terminations, but commencements. Creation is an ongoing process, and when we create a perfect world where love and compassion are shared by all, suffering will cease. #Quote by Bernie Siegel
