compassion

A Quote by Arthur H. Stainback, D.D. on caring, compassion, criticism, individuality, understanding, and value

The value of compassion cannot be over-emphasized. Anyone can criticize. It takes a true believer to be compassionate. No greater burden can be born by an individual than to know no one cares or understands.

A Quote by Art Berg on beginning, belief, children, christ, church, compassion, god, heart, jesus, joy, justice, life, love, miracles, nature, sorrow, suffering, time, victory, and work

May I humbly, yet solemnly, add my testimony. I know that God lives. I know that Jesus is the Christ. This is his work; this is his church; he stands at the head today. More personally, I testify that he loves his children. When they suffer, whether from the effects of sin or the elements of nature, his perfect heart breaks. Yet his compassionate sorrow for us is swallowed up in his joy at our ultimate victory. For he knows the beginning from the end and sees, even as we suffer, the prize that we will win. There are miracles today. Some miracles just take time. This I believe.

The monument of a great man is not of granite or marble or bronze. It consists of his goodness, his deeds, his love and his compassion.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on compassion, god, personality, personality, and power

We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality. We should not make intellect our God. It has great power but very little compassion.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on circle, compassion, consciousness, nature, space, time, and universe

A human being is a part of the whole, called by us "Universe," a part limited in time and space.  He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.  This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.  Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.  Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)

A Quote by Akhnaton [Ikhnaton or Akhenaton] on compassion, cruelty, heart, and tears

The butcher relenteth not at the bleating of the lamb; neither is the heart of the cruel moved with distress. But the tears of the compassionate are sweeter than dewdrops, falling from roses on the bosom of spring.

Akhnaton (c.1375 - c.1353 BC)
