Only the one who is compassionate can show true bravery,
and in defending, show great strength.
Compassion is the means by which humankind may be guarded and saved,
for heaven arms with compassion,
those whom it would not see destroyed.
Chapter 67 – Tao Te Ching
Then the righteous will answer him,
‘Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food,
or thirsty and gave you something to drink?
And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you,
or naked and gave you clothing?
And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?’
And the king will answer them,
‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family,
you did it to me.’
Summoned to love. Summoned to care.
We answer with heart, head and hands.
