“Compassion,” wrote historian Karen Armstrong in considering the proper meaning of the Golden Rule, “asks us to look into our own hearts, discover what gives us pain, and then refuse, under any circumstance whatsoever, to inflict that pain on anybody else.”
“Have compassion for everyone you meet … You do not know what wars are going on down there, where the spirit meets the bone.”
“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
“So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”
