Be one who nurtures and builds. Be on who has an understanding and forgiving heart; who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them. Β – Marvin J. Ashton

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.

The Dalai Lama

“One of the most valuable things I’ve been reminded of [working on LotR] is the value of compassion. The importance of mercy. Especially towards people that you don’t understand or you have differences with. Understanding that even the smallest person matters. Let’s say we’re sitting in a restaurant and we’re talking about compassion and humility and how bad prejudice is, and the waiter comes over, and you say, ‘go away, we’re busy talking, can’t you see that?’ You’ve blown everything you just said. So it does matter how Merry and Pippin talk to each other. It does matter how I treat my son. It does matter how I deal with a waiter or anybody. It’s what each person does and how they react, that’s what makes community, what makes a society. It’s obvious, but what else is there? And that’s what the story tells you.”
