Man wishes to be confirmed in his being by man.. Martin Buber | Empathic Family & Parenting | Scoop.it

“Man wishes to be confirmed in his being by man, and wishes to have a presence in the being of the other….

Secretly and bashfully he watches for a YES which allows him to be and which can come to him only from one human person to another."

Martin Buber,

I and Thou

It is notable how little empathy is cultivated or valued in our society. Gore Vidal

It is notable how little empathy is cultivated or valued in our society. Gore Vidal | Empathic Family & Parenting | Scoop.it

"It is notable how little empathy is cultivated or valued in our society. I put this down to our traditional racism and obsessive sectarianism. Even so, one would think that we would be encouraged to project ourselves into the character of someone of a different race or class, if only to be able to control him. But no effort is made."


Gore Vidal

True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. Martin Luther King, Jr

True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. Martin Luther King, Jr | Empathic Family & Parenting | Scoop.it

On the one hand we are called to play the good Samaritan on life's roadside; but that will be only an initial act. One day we must come to see that the whole Jericho road must be transformed so that men and women will not be constantly beaten and robbed as they make their journey on life's highway.

 

True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring.

“We can move in that direction as a country, in greater polarization - black people amongst blacks, and white amongst whites, filled with hatred toward one another.

 

Or we can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand and to comprehend, and replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand, compassion and love....

 

What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another.” Robert F. Kennedy

Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin - Frederick Buechner

Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin - Frederick Buechner | Empathic Family & Parenting | Scoop.it

“Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.”

We urgently need to make compassion a clear, luminous and dynamic force in our polarized world - Karen Armstrong | Empathic Family & Parenting | Scoop.it

‎"We urgently need to make compassion a clear, luminous and dynamic force in our polarized world. Rooted in a principled determination to transcend selfishness, compassion can break down political, dogmatic, ideological and religious boundaries. Born of our deep interdependence, compassion is essential to human relationships and to a fulfilled humanity. It is the path to enlightenment, and indispensable to the creation of a just economy and a peaceful global community."  Karen Armstrong

Here is the true meaning and value of compassion and nonviolence, - Martin Luther King, Jr | Empathic Family & Parenting | Scoop.it

“Here is the true meaning and value of compassion and nonviolence, when it helps us to see the enemy's point of view, to hear his questions, to know his assessment of ourselves. For from his view we may indeed see the basic weaknesses of our own condition, and if we are mature, we may learn and grow and profit from the wisdom of the brothers who are called the opposition.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe - Albert Einstein

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe - Albert Einstein | Empathic Family & Parenting | Scoop.it

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us.

 

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner if thinking of humanity is to survive.”
