Compassion is a kind of fire

Compassion is a kind of fire … it disturbs, it surprises, it ignites, it burns, it sears, and it warms. Compassion incinerates denial; it especially warms and melts cold hearts, cold structures, frozen minds, and self-satisfied lifestyles. Those who are touched by compassion have their lives turned upside down. That is not necessarily a bad thing. Matthew Fox

from the book Creation Spirituality: Liberating Gifts for the Peoples of the Earth
