Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.
— Andrew Boyd
Yes it hurts, but I admire compassion, and those that choose to be compassionate. By experiencing the world in vibrant colors you come to realize that grey is just a tone and not a permanent shade of life… even if sometimes it feels that way.
