Quotes About Developing Compassion

"Develop character by developing patience, forbearance, restraint, objectivity, compassion, the ability to observe others and the ability to have your life be undefined." [1]

"Instead of being concerned about hurting another, be concerned about being honest and compassionate. If you are being honest and compassionate, then everything you do will be beneficial." [2]

Compassion as a matter of perspective

"Whatever you have done to hurt yourself or others is now brought to develop Wisdom, compassion and discernment." [1]

"Compassion is observing yourself without judgment, aligning yourself with the truth to the extent that you can experience it, being a direct participant in life, choosing what is true over what seems comfortable or accommodating to others and seeking truth over advantage." [3]

“Knowing that the world is emerging into the Greater Community gives you such a greater perspective on events that it allows you to be compassionate with people. It gives you a perspective that is very essential. We say these things because it helps people prepare for the future. Now they can begin to escape their own personal viewpoint that confines their perspective and begin to see things in a larger way.” [3]

“To come into the proximity of Knowledge means that you become more and more like Knowledge itself—more whole, more consistent, more honest, more devoted, more concentrated, more self-disciplined, more compassionate and more self-loving. All of these qualities are developed as you approach that which is the source of these qualities.” [4]

“Compassion must be born of wisdom. It is not sentimental. It is born of the understanding of the true nature of success and failure in human interactions. It is not hopeful and ambitious. It is not a cover-up for pain or discord, anger or grief. It is born of true recognition where things can be seen as they are and interpreted in a useful way.” [5]

"You will be tempted to condemn the false. You will be tempted to throw the false away. You may be brutal and angry with yourself. You may be critical and judgmental of others. Yet you learn ... that what is small can represent what is great. You learn that what is false in all of its manifestations represents the need for Knowledge. This encourages acceptance, forgiveness and compassion. Then you can begin to accept all aspects of yourself and learn to have a sense of a working relationship between them. This leads to self-integration, self-acceptance and, therefore, self-love." [2]

The imperative for compassion

“Your role here is to limit suffering and to teach compassion because compassion emanates from Knowledge.” [3]

“The blessing that the New Message from God is presenting is the recognition and assurance that humanity has a greater power, the power of Knowledge. It has a long tradition of religion and spirituality that despite its many errors has kept humanity’s ability to follow Knowledge alive, has kept compassion and giving alive in this world, where they have failed in so many others.” [6]

"Whether humanity’s united society is a society of Wisdom, compassion and understanding that can tolerate diversity or whether it is an oppressive society with a cruel and harsh dictatorship that values control beyond all things, the outcome is up to you and up to others along with you." [1]

More Quotes About Compassion

"Your employment is a perfect environment to teach you discernment, discretion, insight, compassion, ability and restraint." [1]

"[These] virtues ... emanate from Knowledge--devotion, compassion, wisdom, strength, perseverance, courage and patience." [1]

“The greatest powers that are assisting you are unseen. However, they can be known, and it is your privilege to know them. The greater powers perhaps cannot be touched, but they can touch you, and you can receive their grace and utilize it appropriately, for it is you who must grow and regain your strength and authority. In this, you must be supported but not overshadowed. You must be assisted but not manipulated. You must be protected but not guarded. What great compassion this demonstrates.” [7]
