From Contemplative Practices in Higher Education, by Barbazet and Bush:

"It is a contemplative premise that compassion and knowledge complement each other. As Victor Weisskopf at MIT said, "Knowledge without compassion is inhuman; compassion without knowledge is ineffective." Professors in many disciplines are introducing compassion practice into their courses as a way to help students cultivate their own compassion and connection with the world. Compassion is a mental state that is focused on others' pain or suffering and includes a wish or an aspiration to see that person relieved of that pain or suffering. Compassionate acts are generally considered those that take into account the suffering of others and attempt to alleviate their suffering as if it were their own."
