Understanding and Love

Understanding and Love are not two separate things, but just one. To develop understanding, you have to practice looking at all living beings with the eyes of compassion. When you understand, you cannot help but love. And when you love, you naturally act in a way that can relieve the suffering of people.

Thich Nhat Hanh, A beautiful reminder found at the entry to the meditation hall.
