How precious is your capacity for caring?

The capacity to be happy is very precious. Someone who is able to be happy even when confronted with difficulties, has the capacity to offer light and a sense of joy to herself and to those around her. When we are near someone like this, we feel happy, also. Even when she enters hell, she will lighten up hell with the sound of her laughter.
– Thich Nhat Hanh, in “The Heart of the Buddha’s Teaching”.
