It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.

Don’t cling to things because everything is impermanent.

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.
