“Ultimately, the reason why love and compassion bring the greatest happiness is
simply 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.”
