This is perfect, as the wind is currently wrapping my apartment in an unending vicious embrace.
"Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything,
you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot
turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others.
You must either learn to carry the universe or be crushed
by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet
empty enough to sit down at the same table with its
worst horrors." - Andrew Boyd
