pity quotes- 10 of
When a cat cries over a rat, it's a case of false compassion.
Human hearts are made of flesh.
All people have a sense of pity.
Stares from every human face,
And the seas of pity lie
Locked and frozen in each eye.

And thy maker is not by;
And all must love the human form,
In heathen, Turk, or Jew.

Pity, a human face;
And Love, the human form divine,
And Peace, the human dress.

If we did not make somebody poor;
And mercy no more could be,
If all were as happy as we;
When I from black and he from white cloud free,
And round the tent of Godlike lambs we joy,
