"First, look at the dying person in front of you and think of that person as just like you, with the same needs, the same fundamental desire to be happy and avoid suffering, the same loneliness, the same fear of the unknown, the same secret areas of sadness, the same half-acknowledged feelings of helplessness. You will find that if you really do this, your heart will open toward the person and love will be present between you."

Sogyal Rinpoche, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, Pg 175

"We are all in the same cart, going to execution; how can I hate anyone or wish anyone harm?"

Sir Thomas More
