Sunday Dinner: Eyes Open Wide

“The beauty and mystery of this world only emerges through affection, attention, interest and compassion . . . open your eyes wide and actually see this world by attending to its colors, details and irony.”


Orhan Pamuk

“There are many goals but one path – the path of compassion.”


Amit Ray

“There is no small act of kindness.
Every compassionate act makes large the world.”


Mary Anne Radmacher

“Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things,

man will not himself find peace.”


Albert Schweitzer

“Rage — whether in reaction to social injustice, or to our leaders’ insanity, or to those who threaten or harm us — is a powerful energy that, with diligent practice, can be transformed into fierce compassion.”


Bonnie Myotai Treace

“Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.”


Kahlil Gibran
