It is human to feel compassion for mankinds problems. It is human to to want to change the world.
Compassion is the keen awareness of the interdependence of all things. Compassion is the ultimate and most meaningful embodiment of emotional maturity. It is through compassion that a person achieves the highest peak and deepest reach in his or her search for self-fulfillment.
Compassion is not sentiment but is making justice and doing works of mercy. Compassion is not a moral commandment but a flow and overflow of the fullest human and divine energies.
Compassion is an emotion that is a sense of shared suffering, most often combined with a desire to alleviate or reduce the suffering of others.
Just remember to balance ones compassion and desire with simple pleasures so you'll remain a well rounded human being. Too much of something is harmfull in the long run.
Almost sounded smart there for a second huh. Lator gator.
