Pisces Trait: Compassion

As the purse is emptied, the heart is filled.
     Victor Hugo, born 2/26/1802

I think it frets the saints in heaven to see
How many desolate creatures on the earth
Have learnt the simple dues of fellowship
And social comfort, in a hospital.
     Elizabeth Barrett Browning, born 3/6/1806

Believe me, every heart has its sorrows, which the world knows not; and oftentimes we call a man cold when he is only sad.
     Longfellow, born 2/27/1807

This offends my sensibilities and outrages my sense of fairness! I know so many homosexuals. There would be no art in America if it weren't for gays! Why are they stigmatizing these people? That was when I decided that my name could open certain doors, that I could take the fame that I've tried to get away from and use it to do some good. Well, now I'm doing everything I can. This work means more to me than anything I've ever done as an actress.
     Elizabeth Taylor, born 2/27/1932

Each day, do something for yourself, then something for someone else.
     Quincy Jones, born 3/14/1933

Every time I see something terrible, it's like I see it at age nineteen. I keep a freshness that way.
     Ralph Nader, born 2/27/1934

It's about exploring human problems and feelings, and getting feedback. I thought I had what it takes, and part of that was having suffered. I believe that really good actors have to participate in a great deal of pain. That's what shakes your brain up, so you become a sponge for your emotions.
Kelsey Grammer, born 2/20/1955

Any time something bad happens to a black person because of racism, I feel it in my soul. I really do.
     Charles Barkley, born 2/20/1963

I know what it feels like to be ugly, awkward and hated by kids your age. I went through so many years wondering, "Will I ever be the swan?"
     Drew Barrymore, born 2/22/1975
