„Be Good, Do Good.
Do thou always without attachment perform action which should be done, for by performing action without attachment, man reaches the Supreme.“

Light, Power and Wisdom (1959), p. 6; note that the short phrase "Be good, do good" had occurred in spiritual teachings of others in the 19th century, usually in conjunction with other injunctions. "Be Good, Do Good" became a prominent motto of the Divine Life Society.
Light, Power and Wisdom (1959), p. 207

„Compassion without attachment is possible.“

—  Tenzin Gyatso spiritual leader of Tibet 1935

The Compassionate Life (2001), Ch. 2 "How to Develop Compassion" p. 21
Контексте: Compassion without attachment is possible. Therefore, we need to clarify the distinctions between compassion and attachment.
