November Moment

Here is the quote for the month of November from my wall calendar of sayings of the Vietnamese Buddhist monk and peace campaigner Thich Nhat Hanh:

"Our capacity to understand suffering can bring forth our compassion, our love. Happiness is not possible without understanding, love and compassion. Understanding and compassion are born from suffering."- Thich Nhat Hanh

Etymologically this is I believe correct, since the word 'compassion' comes from the Latin word 'patior' meaning 'I suffer'.
