Buddhism Day by Day: Let us Always Give Something to Lift Their Spirits

“If a person is hungry, we should give them bread. When there is no bread, we can at least give them words that nourish. To a person who looks ill or is physically frail, we ban turn the conversation to some subject that will lift their spirits and fill them with hope and determination to get better. Let us give something to each person we meet: joy, courage, hope, assurance, philosophy, wisdom, a vision for the future. Let us always give something.”
