When you see someone less fortunate than you, express compassion. When you see someone more advanced than you, try to learn from them. Any other feelings are superfluous.

Deng Ming-Dao (via bytor4232)

Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn’t anyone who doesn’t appreciate kindness and compassion.

Tenzin Gyatso, The XIVth Dalai Lama (via phlocaine)
