TED: Ideas Worth Spreading
TED: Ideas Worth Spreadinghttps://www.ted.com/
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

  1. To have compassion is to feel a particular sensitivity to the suffering of others and feel the desire to alleviate it concretely.
    If we were all more compassionate with others, the quality of human relationships would make a great leap. Two clarifications.
    The first: first of all, we must be able to be self-compassionate, that is, to try this attitude already towards ourselves.
    The second: compassion is not an attitude to be reserved only for the great problems of human life, from wars to serious diseases, from natural disasters to world hunger and so on.Compassion is fine, indeed it works even better, in the little things and obstacles of every day.
