Compassion or Pity?

“A sad soul can kill you quicker, far quicker, than a germ.” – John Steinbeck

“In the natural order of the world, suffering is random. Bad things happen to good people just about as often as they happen to bad people. We have not been given a shield protecting us from misfortune; but there is within all of us waiting to be discovered, the strength to deal with misfortune, to overcome it, and to learn from it so we can still find love, laughter and joy despite it.” – Michael Josephson

“When your fear touches someone’s pain, it becomes pity, when your love touches someone’s pain, it becomes compassion.” – Stephen Lavine

“You are not physically/emotionally fully healed, unless your soul is.” ~ Sue Rosenbloom
