Learning to love

"take a look at a rose. Is it possible for the rose to say, "I'll offer my fragrance to good people and withhold it from bad people"? Or can you imagine a lamp that withholds it's rays from a wicked person who seeks to walk in it's light? It could do that only by ceasing to be a lamp. And observe how helplessly and indiscriminately a tree gives it's shade to everyone, good and bad, young and old, high and low, to animals and humans and every living creature-even to the one who seeks to cut it down. This is the first quality of compassion-it's indiscriminate character."

Not mine, better than I can say it.
