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.
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.
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
We can all be angels to one another. We can choose to obey the still small stirring within, the little whisper that says, 'Go. Ask. Reach out. Be an answer to someone's plea. You have a part to play. Have faith.' We can decide to risk that He is indeed there, watching, caring, cherishing us as we love and accept love. The world will be a better place for it. And wherever they are, the angels will dance.

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.
You have the need and the right to spend part of your life caring for your soul. It is not easy...To be a soulful person means to go against all the pervasive, prove-yourself values of our culture and instead treasure what is unique and internal and valuable in yourself and your own personal evolution.

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

We must take care physically, mentally and spiritually so we can do and be the best for others as well.

To be wanted gives you more confidence than you realize, folks that are quiet feel that their words have no value.
ronnie martin, milwaukee wisconsin
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.
Crystal Bleu, PA
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.
Vanessa Rosales, Florida
No one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care!
