Patience and Compassion

One moment ... [we are] full of life; the next moment ... [we are] gone. [Knowing] this helped me realize that each and every moment is precious. Life is both priceless and unpredictable; I don't know how long it will last. I don't want to waste a minute of it on self-pity, worry, guilt, resentment, anger, or any character defect that may stand in the way of becoming the kind of person I want to be. I don't want to leave, or be left with, a long trail of regrets. I want to have as many good memories as possible. Compassion can help me create those memories. Patience can help me create compassion.
