Wishing happiness for others

All the joy the world contains has come through wishing happiness for others.

All the misery the world contains has come through wanting pleasure for oneself.

Is there need for lengthy explanation?

Childish beings look out for themselves; Buddhas labor for the good of others: See the difference that divides them!

– The Venerable Shantideva
