  1. “True compassion is not just an emotional response but a firm commitment founded on reason. Therefore a truly compassionate attitude towards others does not change even if they behave negatively.”

    From His Holiness’ website

  2. “…Our individual well-being is intimately connected both with that of all others and with the environment within which we live…. Our every action, our every deed, word, and thought, no matter how slight or inconsequential it may seem, has an implication not only for ourselves, but for all others, too.”

    –Ethics for the New Millennium
