Before & After picture!
An amazing transformation when a SENTIENT being is treated like an object (before picture), and when she is treated like someONE.
They demonstrate the transformation that occurs when compassion replaces callousness.

9, Book 89, Number 252 :
Narrated by 'Abdullah bin 'Umar
Allah's Apostle said, "Surely! Everyone of you is a guardian and is responsible for his
charges: The Imam (ruler) of the people is a guardian and is responsible for his
subjects; a man is the guardian of his family (household) and is responsible for
his subjects; a woman is the guardian of her husband's home and of his children
and is responsible for them; and the slave of a man is a guardian of his
master's property and is responsible for it. Surely, everyone of you is a
guardian and responsible for his charges."
A person who tries to force himself to change his character in an extremely short time is apt to become depressed and will not be successful. Set reasonable goals for yourself. Work on your faults little by little.
If you make impossible demands on yourself, you will feel frustrated and miserable.
(from Cheshbon Hanefesh #17; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness,
Whether one believes in a religion or not, and whether one believes in rebirth or not, there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate kindness and compassion~ the Dalai Lama
Kindness and compassion are the ultimate way to become connected with those around and the universe. Through kindness we can make ourselves and others feel better and become more open minded to all around us. Go out and bring kindness and compassion to the world.
