This is a nice quote from someone called Norman Cousins.

Here is another good one I found: "The dew of compassion is a tear...." - Lord Byron.

The opening paragraph of the original post is I beleive is a quote from Arthur Jersild

And one I really like:

"Out of compassion I destroy the darkness of their ignorance. From within them I light the lamp of wisdom and dispel all darkness from their lives...." - Bhagavad Gita.
