Inspirational Quote: Social Animals

“WE ARE SOCIAL ANIMALS. MY FUTURE DEPENDS ON OTHERS. THEIR SUFFERING IS ULTIMATELY YOUR SUFFERING.” – The Dalai Lama

This quote appeared on the TED blog at the end of last week (visual created by Mike Birchall). Taken from a video released on the final day of TED2015, this was one of seven quotes from a conversation between Chris Anderson and the Dalai Lama. The topic of the talk was happiness, peace and how all humans can coexist. This phrase spoke to me because we are social beings, needing each other. When someone we know is suffering it is important that we react and show we care, offering them support.
