Before a man eats, he has two hearts (he considers another’s hunger as well as his own); after he eats he has but one heart (he considers only himself, and does not believe his companion is really hungry).
~ Talmud, Baba Batra, 12
Compassion is not weakness, and concern for the unfortunate is not socialism.
~ Hubert Horathio Humphrey
