Well, wisdom can be found in anything, and compassion is always good.
This is excatly where I disagree with most modern people, they think only a nice appearance can make compassionate thoughts, while I think being unemotional is far better and can be much more compassionate, as most doesn't have the guts to do what it takes, make unpopular decitions, because of limited resources, not side with anyone, not do what only makes you popular ..etc.
Unfortunaly I'v gotten too much success being unemotional in a big buisness, because no one else dared fighting an entier staff of chiefs, thereby making a task take 8-22h only taking 2-3h. Change the company sales software, all the PC into terminals ..etc ..etc.
Because I dared meddle in other's area of expertize, because I was loudmouthed and didn't care for poor oppinions, doing so without formal education, but the big boss would see the results, and results is what counts for him, not whiney chiefs.
..that's how you change things! Being nice doesn't change much as so many selfishly desire.
