The healthy do not know how the sick feel, nor the full how the hungry suffer. But sick sympathize with sick, and hungry with hungry, the more closely the more they are alike. For just as pure truth is seen only with a pure heart, so a brother's misery is truly felt only with a miserable heart.
- St. Bernard of Clavirvaux (1090-1153)
Oh isn't this the truth? May I always be hungry, miserable and sick so I can and will always know what my fellow humans feel.
