“Let us not underestimate how hard it is to be compassionate. 
Compassion is hard because it requires the inner disposition to go with others 
to a place where they are weak, vulnerable, lonely, and broken. 
But this is not our spontaneous response to suffering. 
What we desire most is to do away with suffering 
by fleeing from it or finding a quick cure for it.” 
-- Fr.Henri J.M. Nouwen
