"Compassion is the ultimate attitude of wealth: an anti-poverty attitude, a war on want. It contains all sorts of heroic, juicy, positive, visionary, expansive qualities. And it implies larger scale thinking, a freer and more expansive way of relating to oneself and the world. It is the attitude that one has been born fundamentally rich rather than that one must become rich."
~Chogyam Trungpa~

Teresa at The Chocolate Chip Waffle originally posted this quote here.  She also wrote a very beautiful essay expounding on the quote here.  She is an amazing, inspirational writer.


  1. It's a beautiful quote. And it is true that physical wealth is irrelevant to wealth of character.

  2. Thank you so much for this today! I've been pulling out of a funk these past weeks, feeling uncertain about writing, blogging & just about everything in life lately.

    This post is like a song to me today. Thank you!

  3. "a war on want". i loved that line.
