A bleeding heart makes life more livable than a hard heart.

Can I see another’s woe,
And not be in sorrow too?
Can I see another’s grief,
And not seek for kind relief?

Better to go down dignified
With boughten friendship at your side
Than none at all. Provide, provide!

The comforter’s head never aches.
Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

When hand folks over to God’s mercy, and show none ourselves.
Look up and not down;
Look forward and not back;
Look out and not in;
Lend a hand.

-Martin Luther King Jr-
Oh pity human woe! ‘tis what the happy to the unhappy owe.
To love with the spirit is to pity, and he who pities most loves most.
-Miguel De Unamuno-
