Pure love

Kindness is the truest indicator of a compassionate temperament. Compassion is the purest form of love.--By Ron Cooper

  1. I've never considered compassion that way. I love your thoughts, and yes, you are so absolutely right about it. Joanna Foreman

  3. This thought reminded me of a study that was done to "measure compassion" in people. Apparently, if you tend to yawn symathetically when you see someone else yawn, it is an indication of compassion. The sooner you yawn, the more compassionate you are deemed to be.

    But I think you are more accurate: kindness is a far better gauge. Have a great day!
