Our Need For Love

~ From the Dalai Lama's speech "Compassion and the Individual" ~

Jan 12, 2013

Posted by Kimmy Sophia Brown

“Ultimately, the reason why love and compassion bring the greatest happiness issimply that our nature cherishes them above all else. The need for love lies at the very foundation of human existence. It results from the profound interdependence we all share with one another. However capable and skillful an individual may be, left alone, he or she will not survive. However vigorous and independent one may feel during the most prosperous periods of life, when one is sick or very young or very old, one must depend on the support of others.”
