Sometimes when I’m asked to describe the Buddhist teachings, I say this: Everything is connected; nothing lasts; you are not alone. This is really just a restatement of the traditional Three Marks of Existence: non-self, impermanence, and suffering. The fact that we all suffer means we are all in the same boat, and that’s what allows us to feel compassion.
where is love in all of this?

It’s the questions we can’t answer that teach us the most.
They teach us how to think.
If you give a man an answer,
all he gains is a little fact.
But give him a question and he’ll look for his own answers.
