For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.
If you shift your focus from yourself to others, extend your concern to others, and cultivate the thought of caring for the well being of others, then this will have the immediate effect of opening up your life and helping you to reach out.
The 14th Dalai Lama
Caring can be learned by all human beings, can be worked into the design of every life, meeting an individual need as well as a pervasive need in society.
Mary Catherine Bateson
Anthony J. D'Angelo
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible.
Norman B. Rice
As we struggle with shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December's bad weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom we are worth the same.
In caring I experience the other as having potentialities and the need to grow. In helping the other grow I do not impose my own direction; rather, I allow the direction of the other's growth to guide what I do, to help determine how I am to respond.

Personal Stories About ‘Caring’
Foster FamilySubmitted by Christy T
My grandparents are foster parents. I help her all the time with her 3 yr old foster kid Chris. He doesn't have wrinkles in his brain, so it takes him a while to learn. My grandparents have over 50 kids and Chris is the one who made me realize, just because I am 13 doesn't mean I can't do big things!
Being ThereSubmitted by Anonymous
New York City- One hot summer day I was rushing late to my workplace on the Upper West Side. As I cut through a small park I heard a woman sobbing. Rather wailing I should say, as if she were bursting with the pain of all life. The sound was so striking that I stopped immediately in my tracks to find out where it...
What's Your Name?Submitted by Evan S.
When I was twelve, I started to notice an isolated kid who usually kept to himself. I always saw either people staring at him and whispering to others about him or purposely ignoring him, not bothering to ask even what his name was. The kids at my school weren't the nicest, but, then again, they weren't the...

Out of ALL of the values you have listed, I think caring is potentially the MOST important. It IS the basis for compassion, understanding, love, friendships, and SOOOOO much more. I have a "group" ( you can join on my Facebook page ) that you can join that I call "Conscientious Protectors". Read about it and join if you like. If we all cared more about the important things in life ( which is why I LOVE Values.com's TV commercials ), then this world would be a FAR better place for all.
i think this is very great... thanks and bye

Saying you care is words people hear. Going just one step beyond, being honest and doing something "just because", that's the ULTIMATE proof of love and care. THEY GO HAND-IN-HAND
If one does not care is he living at all?
Robert Stewart, bethel
Caring for the well-being of others implies that our actions should speak more than words. It is through our actions that people will know how much we are caring for the well-being of others.
ROGERS NSUBUGA, UGANDA
At school this is an everyday duty. It is thought out through love.
Caring comes from strong family values
and is enhanced every time we treat
people the way we wish to be treated.

The one you care about might not even care about you... but do you know what you have to do? You have to move on and show them that you don't even care,and trust me he will come back to you.

No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care!
