      "We see that, like ourselves,
      all other living beings want to be happy,
      and again that like ourselves they are subject to suffering.
      The consideration that all beings seek happiness
      causes thoughts of good will to arise —
      the loving wish that they be well, happy, and peaceful.
      The consideration that beings are exposed to suffering
      causes thoughts of harmlessness to arise —
      the compassionate wish that they be free from suffering."
