Most of the languages are associated with words and speaking. But there is a language spoken from the heart, understood by the eyes and felt in the way we lead our lives.
“Compassion is the basis of morality.”
― Arthur Schopenhauer
The language of compassion is one of the most sensitive and beautiful language that one can practice. Who in this world in not in need of some love, care and understanding? At one time or another, we as human beings require external support in form of an encouraging word from a friend, a kind deed from a stranger or a hug from a child.
There are the fortunate ones who can manage the demands of this life on their own but there are others who are less fortunate than us. They might not be able to do things such as buying a cake for their kids birthday or sending them to a school. There are umpteen things.
“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”
― Dalai Lama XIV
