Be prepared for action! #MondayBlogs #1000Speak

I spoke of the 1000 Voices for Compassion project on Saturday, during my coffee post. This wonderful project aims to unite a thousand (or more) bloggers, with the aim of all posting about compassion on the same day โ€“ 20th of February. Click here to find out more.

In the lead up to the auspicious event (for the next three Mondays), Iโ€™m going to take the opportunity to share some of my favourite quotes on compassion.

demond tutu quoteHave a happy Monday everyone!



Such a simple but wonderful idea ๐Ÿ™‚

I like Tutu’s linkage between compassion and action. Too often, people think words are sufficient. Or a #hashtag. Nope, it isn’t.

Nice quote and nice idea.

    Is the information anywhere else. I don’t use facebook and it won’t let me see the page without an account.

      Do you use Twitter? Using #1000Speak will give you access to information. The facebook page is a way for people to sign up (there’s a list). I believe there is or will be a blog and will try to dig up that information. I am also happy to add your name to the list on your behalf ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks – the movement is pretty extraordinary. I’m excited about the event! ๐Ÿ˜€

What a wonderful idea. So any blogger can participate? Is their a criteria or guideline in which to follow?

Wonderful quote. Very true. Compassion is demanding, but something we should pursue.

That is a great quote – compassion isn’t a passive emotion.

A great quote, and an amazing idea! ๐Ÿ™‚

I like this. I like that you have to be prepared for action. Thanks for sharing Melissa. x
