The more capable readers are of compassion, the more likely it is that they will be able to read well. Compassion should sharpen the readersโ€™ ability to see other points of view, other perspectives, and to imagine the feelings of those who hold them. It should enable readers to take, if only momentarily, the perspective of someone else and thus better understand motivations and thinking.
