When I got my first television set, I stopped caring so much about having close relationships.
Wealth is the progressive realization of worthy goals, the ability to love and have compassion, meaningful and caring relationships.
There is no virtue in compulsory government charity, and there is no virtue in advocating it. A politician who portrays himself as 'caring' and 'sensitive' because he wants to expand the government's charitable programs is merely saying that he's willing to try to do good with other people's money.
P. J. O'Rourke
In 2008, while the film version of my book 'Choke' was coming to market, my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. That meant that I had to appear in public to promote a comedy about a son trying to save his dying mother - the plot of Choke - while privately I was caring for my own dying mother. It was torture.
Caring for but never trying to own may be a further way to define friendship.
Every life has its years in which one progresses as on a tedious and dusty street of poplars, without caring to know where he is.
Cure yourself of the affliction of caring how you appear to others. Concern yourself only with how you appear before God, concern yourself only with the idea that God may have of you.
Miguel de Unamuno
To become Christ-like is the only thing in the whole world worth caring for, the thing before which every ambition of man is folly and all lower achievement vain.
The custom of speaking to God Almighty as freely as with a slave - caring nothing whether the words are suitable or not, but simply saying the first thing that comes to mind from being learnt by rote by frequent repetition - cannot be called prayer: God grant that no Christian may address Him in this manner.
Saint Teresa of Avila
Caring for your inner child has a powerful and surprisingly quick result: Do it and the child heals.
I think there's something that happens at 40 where you settle into your own skin and you stop caring what people think - you realize life is a gift from God and you want to live it to the fullest.
If you open your heart, then the object of your love becomes so precious because you are so open. And that philosophy, that caring, spreads.
I may have made my reputation as a general in the Army, and I'm very proud of that. But I've always felt that I was more than one-dimensional. I'd like to think I'm a caring human being.
Fortunately, when you're a mom, the responsibility of caring for your child can keep you going.
In every life, there have to be some shadows. Look at me. My life has been filled with sunshine. A beautiful and caring wife. Five healthy children. I got to do what I loved. How many people are that lucky?
I would prefer to be a little nervous, because when you stop being nervous is kind of when you stop caring.
I actually do think you're seeing this trend towards organizations just caring more about their brand and engaging. And so I think Home Depot will want to humanize itself. I think that's a lot of why companies are starting blogs, are just giving more insight into what's going on with them.
I learned to cook in self-defense. My wife doesn't know what a kitchen is. In the first month of our marriage, she broiled lamb chops 26 nights in a row. Then I took over. I used to mind her not caring about food, but no more - as long as I can eat what I want.
There have been some medical schools in which somewhere along the assembly line, a faculty member has informed the students, not so much by what he said but by what he did, that there is an intimate relation between curing and caring.
Spending is not caring. Spending is what politicians do instead of caring. Spending more does not guarantee success. Politicians like to measure spending because it is easier than measuring actual metrics of accomplishment.

If people can fit their work around caring responsibilities for the elderly, the disabled, then again that's very positive.
With women, there's a basic female instinct of caring deeply about the way they look; women stars have a narcissist complex.
When you have a problem, rules don't solve your problem. It's caring and education.
If I do something caring for a friend, I have no doubt in my mind they would do it for me.
I am so happy and proud to learn of Hideo Nomo's election to the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame. He was quite a pitcher and competitor, but he is also a very special and caring person.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
