Value Description
Compassion is a virtue one in which the emotional capacities of empathy and sympathy (for the suffering of others) are regarded as a part of love itself, and a cornerstone of greater social interconnectedness and humanism foundational to the highest principles in philosophy, society, and personhood. There is an aspect of compassion which regards a quantitative dimension, such that individual\'s compassion is often given a property of depth, vigor, or passion. More vigorous than empathy, the feeling commonly gives rise to an active desire to alleviate another\'s suffering.
