"Compassion is the muscle that drives the skeleton
When empathy is felt, compassion takes action.
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited
in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling
as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of
his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting
us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest
to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening
our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole
of nature in its beauty.
HH the Dalai Lama:
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to
be happy, practice compassion.
