When we're caring for someone who's sick, we lend them our body. We use the strength of our backs and arms to move them from the bed to the commode. In the same way, we can also lend them the strength of our mind. We can help to create a calm and accepting environment. We can be a reminder of stability and concentration. We can expand our heart in such a way that it can inspire the individual who's dying to expand theirs. One calm person in the room can ease the entire experience for everybody. - Frank Ostaseski, co-founder of the Zen Hospice Project
