– Mother Teresa on mildness and caring
Why is caring important?
Because more people are caring, the world becomes a better place to live. Caring people make other people feel that they are not alone. Weak, sick or hurt people are helped.
If there was no care in the world, it was everyone for himself. Then sick people would only be helped if money could be made from them, and the sick people would also be disadvantaged even more. There would then be mistrust.
If everyone had an attitude of ‘I don’t care at all’ then only half the work would be done and the environment would suffer a lot too.
