Reblog: Extended Reflections – Compassion — from Suzette B’s Blog

Saw this via fellow blogger Suzette B’s recent post: Extended Reflections – Compassion.

It’s such a beautiful montage of quotes and images; words which sum up what we strive for when we’re operating from a place of “true calling” or spirit. So thought I would share.

(How much love today, can we dare? What if we assume that everyone struggles as much as we ourselves do, or perhaps even more? What if we assume good intent? What if we leave fear behind and let love shine? How will the world be then?)

Enjoy, fellow lovers of words. And live… and let love. ❤️  With many thanks to the lovely-hearted Suzette Benjamin (who blogs about “Inspiration and Spirituality”).… and to all of you, including Suzette, who have been so kind to me, by supporting this whimsical blog, in the form of likes and/or comments.

I truly appreciate every one of you, past, present and future (for however long it continues — created on a whim, it will surely end on a whim as well. ⚡️⚡️ ;)) Without you, it wouldn’t still exist. And as for me, it’s mostly been a whole lot of fun. A creative emo-joy explosion; expressing feelings on the run. 💥 💥

Freedom in the word. Soar like a bird. No stress, less mess. Just say it and flay it.

(I know I’m moody at times, but I’m tryna improve. That’s the point of this here groove.)

From Suzette B’s post: Extended Reflections – Compassion:

“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.”

George Washington Carver

“All I ever wanted was to reach out and touch another human being not just with my hands but with my heart.”

― Tahereh Mafi


“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”

― Mother Teresa

“In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert


It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.”

― John Joseph Powell

“Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”

― Albert Einstein



“We must learn to regard people less in the light of what they do or omit to do, and more in the light of what they suffer.”

― Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    1. Thanks again – I’ll admit the timing is interesting considering what I just published (possibly my most brutal poem yet – literally minutes before you liked this post and shared it) but sometimes we need to have compassion for ourselves as well.
