Compassion- “flourishing the seed”

'Seed of Compassion'


“If we are exposed to the correct environmental conditions, that is, a society that speaks,

then those discreet areas of the brain begin to develop and mature and our capacity for language grows.

In the same way, all humans may be endowed with the ‘seed of compassion.’

When exposed to the right conditions — at home, in society at large, and later perhaps through our own pointed efforts — that seed will flourish.

– Howard C. Cutler, M.D. pg. 60
