Sympathy given can never be waste.
One aspect of sympathy is that of
Pity-pity for the distressed or pain-
stricken, with a desire to alleviate
or help them in their sufferings.
The world needs more of this
â€œFor pity makes the world
Soft to the weak, and noble
for the strong.
Another form of sympathy is that
of rejoicing with others who are more
successful than ourselves, and though
their success were our own.
