I believe compassion to be one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and long-term happiness to our lives. I’m not talking about the short-term gratification of pleasures like sex, drugs or gambling (though I’m not knocking them), but something that will bring true and lasting happiness. The kind that sticks.

Paper Planes

I could not possibly count the number of times I have heard that using drugs means that I am of poor health, unable to have a successful career, unfit to be a mother or some other such thing that in the eyes of the proclaimer would cause me to live less than a full life. None of these things, of course, are true.
