On compassion 

What is compassion?

It is perhaps that extra moment spent trying to make the difference a smile can make. The breath necessary to say I love you after an argument, which could easily not be spent. It isn’t always a lifetime of work; it must take only a brief speck in time. It is a split-second decision that is somehow selfless; it is a constant choice.
