The fools say I am foolish for caring like I do. But I say they are fools and keep caring because that's what I do.
When it comes to Life, people are so full of themselves, so full of their own selves to see the other snowflakes in the snowstorm. They act like islands, and forget to consider the ocean which surrounds them. It must be lonely to live so sadly.
When it comes to compassion, I know how to -- in that understanding where I see someone like they see themselves, I can love them like they love themselves. It takes a lot to do that. It takes more than I've honestly got, but if I didn't give it well then I'd be so full of myself like every other fool that I'd forget what it means to be human. Or a snowflake. Or an island.
If this doesn't make sense then I suppose it isn't really meant to. One person's wisdom isn't a substitute for another's experience. One person's experience isn't a substitute for another's compassion.
Let those who can care, care as much as they can. And let the rest alone I say.
