From  “The Thirty Seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva“, verse 11, Benefiting Others.

All suffering comes from yearning for your own happiness.
The perfect Buddhas are born from the intention to benefit others.
Therefore, to truly exchange your own happiness
For the suffering of others is the practice of a Bodhisattva.
