    —Dr. Leo Buscaglia Professor, Author

  • “I feel the capacity to care is the thing which gives life its deepest significance.”

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.

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

To be wanted gives you more confidence than you realize, folks that are quiet feel that their words have no value.

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
