What the most fully realized human beings realize most fully is that loving kindness performed toward all others is what human beings must do in order to be happy and to promote peaceful well-being in the world.

Such loving kindness is the one true source of happiness and light; without it comes darkness and despair, resentment and revenge.

One learns loving kindness by receiving it as a gift from others, from parents and early caregivers in particular, a gift one learns in turn to give happily to others.
