Favorite Quotes #1 – Compassion

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded.

Compassion

It’s a relationship between equals.  Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others.  Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.

 ~~ Pema Chodron
