Compassion quotes- featured image

Compassion is a feeling that prompts us to be sympathetic about the people in need, sorrow, and pain and try to help them heal it. Compassionate people are sensitive to people’s situations and hence understand them. They are always up for helping the needy. Compassion is one of the most significant pillars of morality. It is best to be benign and empathetic to justice, not injustice. Moreover, to be compassionate to others you have to be compassionate to yourself first.

Unfortunately, compassionate people seldom show up these days. People are becoming so self-obsessed that they don’t see anyone’s else sorrow before their needs and happiness. The feeling of compassion seems like an endangered species that, if not conserved, could extinct. If it happens, it would be the greatest threat to humanity as compassion is the true essence of it. A few people have been blessed to be compassionate, and their presence is a boon to the people around them. The best example one can remember is Mother Teresa, who went on helping the needy spreading love and kindness among lives.

“The worst sin one could commit is being the reason for someone’s depressed life, and the best virtue is to bring a new light of hope to the people who feel dark from the inside out.”

Being compassionate is not about doing something great. You don’t need to be rich by money but by heart to be kind and helpful to others. It could be as simple as bringing a smile to someone. The ultimate way to do so is to solve people’s problems, considering them yours. Mare, your efforts will give them the satisfaction that they are not lonely and lovely people still exist in the world. Without further ado, I want to share some compassion quotes to make this world a better world to live in.
