Greatest Compassion quotes of All Time

Compassion is an emotion; it’s more like feeling sympathetic and having concern towards the suffering of others. The constant will and hope that everything gets fine in others’ life and the pain heals soon with time. Some people become so practical in life that being kind to others seems the sign of weakness.

Well, being kind and being weak are two absolutely different things! We don’t know how hard it is for others around us, some might have a terrible childhood, or might be fighting ailments, or can have a financial problem, and the list can be as long as you want.

While we cannot recover anyone’s loss but be kind to them won’t harm us too! So before the place, great ideas to change the world start with yourself, be the real change the world wants and needs! On this note, we have brought Greatest Compassion quotes of All Time.
