This quote means that if you want others to be happy, you should show compassion to them, and if I want to be happy, I should be compassionate with myself. Besides, If I show compassion to someone I will feel realized.
For example, there was a time when an online friend was going through a tough time in life related to the divorce of his parents. Me and a few other people just sat listening to him and thinking about that right now, I think we really showed compassion to him and thanks to that he became more optimistic.
I agree with this quote because that’s really what it is. If you show compassion to others they should consequently feel happier as shown in the example above.
In my own words this quote would be “If you want someone to be happy you should show compassion to them, including yourself.”

This quote means that to have compassion you benefit not only yourself with happiness, but also the people who are around you, which makes the world a better place for everyone. Some years ago I volunteered on a project, where I donated my hair to an institution that takes care of people with cancer and, the most interesting is that I went to deliver my hair to the place. They use the hair to produce wigs. I fully agree with this quote It’s hard to explain the feeling of joy that I felt when delivering my hair at the institution and the sensation of gratitude and joy that I received from the people who received it. If you want to have happiness and distribute it, practice compassion.

This quote is very meaningful. It states that you can be happy by practicing compassion and making others happy, too. It also means that an essential step to being happy is also making others happy..
For example, one time I was very anxious and sad, but my friend listened to me and helped me overcome it. When she was anxious I did the same for her.
I definitely agree with this quote because when I helped her, she felt better and I felt happy to be helpful, and I’m sure she felt the same when the roles were reversed.
After all, we can’t be happy without making others happy too, and your actions will inspire them to follow your example.

In my opinion the quote means that true happiness lies in helping others, their happiness will make you happy too.
I once had to help a man who had lost his keys. So I took them to the police, and the next day he called me and was very happy.

I fully agree with the quote because, this man has given me a lot of happiness and I think this is the most important reward.
be kind and compassionate to everyone and you will have a life without regrets or remorse.

In my opinion this quote said by Dalai Lama has a great meaning to it. Most just see compassion as another word in this world, when it’s so much more than that. Compassion bring people together, makes the world a better place, and most importantly allows you to connect with others. Compassion is necessary to the human experience because it keep the world emotionally connected.

With compassion, people come closer together. Compassion provides love and without this emotion, humans would be isolated from one another. Love would not be considered love without compassion. It distinguishes a human from being heartless to one who cares for people other than themselves. Being compassionate leads a person away from a path of selfishness and builds strong relationships with others. The following authors did a great job of demonstrating this.

To start with I would like to say that any kind of feeling makes us more humane, compassion is one of them.
We live in a world lacking in compassion. The sad reality of humanity is that the vast majority of people ignore the suffering of others. Many prefer not to see others’ suffering . Witnessing the suffering of another person can provoke fear or sadness . Too often, people are careless.

We often learn compassion only after we have suffered ourselves perhaps experiencing sickness, accident, illness, death of a loved one, , bad luck….
But what we have to remember is that without it, we would descend into a state of darkness.
The Dalai Lama stated it best: “Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.”

As a conclusion I would say that that humankind needs compassion. It is my view that compassion must be learned.
