Quoted for Truth

"When people are overwhelmed by illness, we must give them physical relief, but it is equally important to encourage the spirit through a constant show of love and compassion. It is shameful how often we fail to see that what people desperately require is human affection. Deprived of human warmth and a sense of value, other forms of treatment prove less effective. real care of the sick does not begin with costly procedures, but with the simple gifts of affection, love and concern." His Holiness, The Dalai Lama
