"I declare that the heart's release by loving-kindness has the beautiful for its excellence. 
This is the attainment of a wise monk who penetrates to no higher release."

    "If you learn to practice love, compassion, joy, and equanimity [the Brahmaviharas], you will know how to heal the illnesses of anger, sorrow, insecurity, sadness, hatred, lonliness, and unhealthy attachments"

    "Even his silence is eloquant. He is immediately recognisable by the quality of his aliveness, by his disinterestedness and compassion. He is a mirror for us all, showing us who we essentially are."
