Something I Read on Facebook

Dalai Lama 

  · We have to make an effort to extend our natural compassion, not just through prayer or reciting nice words, but by putting our intelligence to good use. That’s how we’ll become happy ourselves, and how our family and community will be happier. One thing that distinguishes us as human beings is our ability to extend our natural feelings of compassion, to other human beings and ultimately to the whole of humanity

  1. True, but I do think at least some animals have a sense of what would be their version of compassion. They feel when their owners are not well or are feeling depressed, for example, and act accordingly. So that part of the comment I don’t fully agree with.
