Compassion Quotes

Compassion stands at the pinnacle of human virtue. It is compassion, the ability to feel the pain and suffering of others, which makes one truly humane. Compassion encompasses both empathy and sympathy, and is the backbone of the philosophy of humanism. To disregard one’s trouble and fight for the cause of others without the expectation of reaping any rewards is a virtue of the highest order. One should not consider compassion as a matter of choice as this should be ingrained in one’s personality. So, if you want to know more on what this virtue means then go through the compassion quotes given below.
