Encouragement is oxygen to the soul.
George M Adams
Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day.
Listen to your conscience. Don’t be afraid not to join the mob if you feel inside it’s wrong. Don’t confuse being ‘soft’ with seeing the other guy’s point of view. … Avoid self-righteously turning on a friend, but have your friendship mean enough that you would be willing to share with your friend your judgment. Don’t assign away your judgment to achieve power.
George H W Bush
Our task must be to widen our circle of compassion, to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
The best part of life is not just surviving, but thriving with passion and compassion and humor and style and generosity and kindness.
Compassion is the ultimate expression of your highest self.
Compassion becomes real when we recognise our shared humanity.
Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away.
The most hurtful people are often the most pained. The most arrogant are often the most insecure. And the most controlling are often the most afraid.
Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.
