The Road Runner

A Reference For The Montair Staff

Compassion transcends ego. Demonstrating compassion is often in conflict with getting things done in a busy world. Compassion for an individual in a class of many costs an unfair amount of time. But the reward of exchanging your own selfworth for a moment of understanding anothers problems is always greater than any loss involved. Anonymous
