Love and Compassion, a simple definition

Compassion is the desire to alleviate or stop the suffering of others.
Love is the desire to make others happy.
Both can of course be combined.

Love and compassion are easily felt in the presence of little children. Little children make us lower our shields easily since we don’t expect to be hurt by them when trying to help them.

We should try to extend love and compassion to all beings.
