"The essence of love and compassion is understanding, the ability to recognize the physical, material, and psychological suffering of others, to put ourselves “inside the skin” of the other. We “go inside” their body, feelings, and mental formations, and witness for ourselves their suffering. Shallow observation as an outsider is not enough to see their suffering. We must become one with the subject of our observation. When we are in contact with another’s suffering, a feeling of compassion is born in us. Compassion means, literally, “to suffer with.”"
Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step (via seekingmindfulsoul)

"You are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in."

Eliezer Yudkowsky 

Being a “product of their times” is no excuse. Never let someone off the hook for bigotry.

"Maybe I just thought
you were worth it
because you treated me
better that the rest,
and I believed that
it was good enough.
You broke my heart,
kissed me after
and I told myself
it would be okay
since I still felt so much
for you."
