Charles Dickens published Great Expectations in 1860. In those days, compassion was a verb.

He describes a scene in which the protagonist, Pip, identifies with the profound suffering of another character in the story, an old woman who was jilted at the altar decades ago and has never gone outside our seen daylight since. On page 367, the author writes, “There was an air of utter loneliness upon her, that would have moved me to pity though she had done me a deeper injury than I could charge her with. As I stood compassionating her …”

That’s a perfect example of the point Darrow makes in the video version of his popular post, Compassion: The Noun That Used to Be a Verb.
