Dalai Lama Quote #1

"It’s in our interest to take care of others. Self-centeredness is opposed to basic human nature. In our own interest as human beings we need to pay attention to our inner values. Sometimes people think compassion is only of help to others, while we get no benefit. This is a mistake. When you concern yourself with others, you naturally develop a sense of self-confidence. To help others takes courage and inner strength." (Dalai Lama)
How wonderful this quote is? It is exactly as if a human being came on this Earth to defy against injustice and understand what values mean. This quote proves that being self centered is not always the answer in life, and that compassion should not be considered weak. To me, people thinking that compassion is weak or can be taken advantage of, looks upon the word narrow mindedness. After all, I would not want to live in a world without compassion and great memories. To work with honesty and expect nothing in return is compassion; but life is always full of the idealistic power of karma. The old phrase "If you do good, the universe will pat you on the back. And if you do bad, then the universe will pummel you." is not wrong when it comes to values. And if you have not tried help others gain strength, well you have not lived life at all. The feeling is abstract and you become mesmerized by will power and accomplishment. Dalai Lama is correct, you will naturally develop a sense of self-confidence; because you can uplift the world and prove your innocence with maturity.
