Sympathy is feeling bad, empathy is doing good

Sympathy is problems, empathy is problems and solutions

Sympathy is them, empathy is we

Sympathy is a one-way street, empathy helps you as much

Sympathy is there, empathy is there there

Sympathy is given, empathy is a choice given to you

Sympathy is hollow, empathy is fulfilling

Sympathy is compassion, empathy is compassionate action

Sympathy is absence of apathy, empathy is removing apathy

Sympathy is easy, convenient;

Empathy is difficult, important.

Poet Dharmaraj Solanki derives his inspiration from the work that he does at ConnectFor, where he connects volunteers with NGOs that need them.
