Empathy is given. We come into the world with the ability to feel as others feel.

Kindness is not given. It must be learned.

Empathy is not willed. It comes to us of itself.

Kindness is willed. If arises from the belief that here before me is another such as me, and from the desire to treat others as I would be treated.

Empathy is a comfort. Kindness is a gift.

Empathy binds. Kindness saves.
