Passions are private and personal. Compassion is public and impersonal, an imbued and universal power which cannot be pluralized, commodified or run up a flag pole and saluted. It’s a love song, a gift of the heart, and it’s singing now.
The man who sees himself in others is omnipotent.
Compassion awakens in the realization that human relationships cannot be plotted or planned.
A good man is neither satisfied with himself nor dissatisfied with himself.
