Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals.

It is well to give when asked but it is better to give unasked, through understanding.

Stop beating yourself up.  You are a work in progress; which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.

The heart is like a garden: it can grow compassion or fear, resentment or love. What seeds will you plant there?

There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.

A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.

If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete.

You’re imperfect, and you’re wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.

Our sorrows and wounds are healed only when we touch them with compassion.

We must each lead a way of life with self-awareness and compassion, to do as much as we can. Then, whatever happens we will have no regrets.

Judgments prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances.

It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.

Love is saying, “I feel differently” instead of “you’re wrong.”

When you live on a round planet, there’s no choosing sides.

Give whatever you are doing and whoever you are with the gift of your attention.

Never look down on anybody unless you’re helping him up.

We choose our destiny in the way we treat others.

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

Be gentle first with yourself if you wish to be gentle with others.
