Krista Tippett: Reconnecting with compassion




  • "Compassion is kind. Compassion is curious. Compassion can express itself in the simple act of presence. It is linked to practical virtues like generosity and hospitality and just being there -- just showing up."
  • "In the beginning of the creation, something happened, and the original light of the universe was shattered into countless pieces. It lodged as shards inside every aspect of creation. The highest human calling is to look for this light, to point at it when we see it, to gather it up, and in so doing to repair the world."
