Quote of the Day

by Jiddu Krishnamurti

All of you want comfort and hope and the dangling of heaven in front of you, and you would call that “compassion”. You want to be led from one hope to another hope, from one longing to another longing, from one desire to another desire, from one satisfaction to another satisfaction. To a man who offered you that, you would give the laurels of compassion, whereas of a man who does not give hope, but who gives you the real understanding of life, so that you will conquer for yourself all ailments, all diseases and all sorrows and all pains, you say: that man has no heart or his heart is dry and empty.
