Empathy

Screen Shot 2012-06-03 at 6.49.24 AMEmpathy…is an essential human trait.

When we see someone in pain, even a stranger on the street  or a victim of natural disaster we see on television or hear about on the radio, we have an instinctive response to his or her suffering.

And not only that, we also experience an instinctive urge, whether we act upon it or not, to do something about it.

— Insight from the Dalai Lama
