Swindoll: How Much We Care

Others will not care how much we know until they know how much we care. As one authority puts it: “If I just do my thing and you do yours, we stand in danger of losing each other and ourselves.... we are fully ourselves only in relation to each other. I do not find you by chance; I find you by an active life of reaching out.” (Swindoll’s Ultimate Book of Illustrations and Quotes - p. 105).
