A Quote by John Makransky on love, compassion, altruism, and social service

Compassion that knows others in all levels of their suffering motivates service for them on all levels of their need. Such service is not easily discouraged at disappointing temporal outcomes, because it holds others in their deepest potential of freedom, which is always present…. We are learning how to hold our clients in the vision of their positive potential, confirming their essential goodness, even when confronting their harmful behaviors or limiting thoughts of themselves and others.
