The misconception of what is really the most important thing in life may vary between family, career, fortune and fame. The truth is, the most significant thing in your life has to be your level of compassion. Its compassion that helps you connect to one other which will give you a strong desire to try and alleviate someones Else's pain. Being human and being humane should go hand in hand, because humanity is an embodiment of what makes us human, and without compassion we are just emotionless robots. People can live without a family, a career, a fortune and fame but without compassion the purpose of life is meaningless.
