Growth can also involve producing services instead of goods. In particular, a major expansion of public and caring services (like child care, education, elder care, and other life-affirming programs) would generate huge increases in GDP and incomes, with virtually no impact on the environment.
I would like death to come to me while I am planting cabbages, caring little for death and even less for the imperfection of my garden.
Que la mort me trouve plantant mes choux, mais nonchalant d'elle, et encore plus de mon jardin imparfait.
I have always found him to be a proud, honourable man, loyal, true, persevering, principled, caring and committed but tough and a person who lost friends easily. On behalf of the Government but in particular on behalf of the Fianna Fáil Party, I thank him for his distinguished years of service to his constituents and his country.bertie ahern
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.
She didn’t care. Not caring was how she got through the day.daniel abraham
Promising too much can be as cruel as caring too little.bill clinton
Plenty of kind, decent, caring people have no religious beliefs, and they act out of the goodness of their hearts . Conversely, plenty of people who profess to be religious, even those who worship regularly, show no particular interest in the world beyond themselves.john danforth
When birth control pills were available in Europe but not in the United States, American women created an uproar about how the unwillingness to make the pill available showed a contempt for the lives of women… When the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released birth control pills with high dosages of hormones that were later found to be unnecessarily high, they were attacked for not caring about women enough to do the necessary tests.warren farrell
The most unacknowledged spending expectation among women is the amount of time spent by single mothers caring for children, not only physically, but psychologically. It is my feeling that only a small percentage of a mother’s time is normally compensated for by child support, given what a woman could make adding these hours to workforce hours… It is why women who have never been married and never had children earn so much more in the workplace than women who have had children.warren farrell
How is it, Chloe, that your pretty skirt Is torn so badly by the winds that hurt Real people, you who, in eternity, sing The hours, sun in your hair appearing And disappearing? How is that your breasts Are pierced by shrapnel, and the oak groves burn, While you, charmed, caring not at all, turn To run through forests of machinery and concrete And haunt us with the echoes of your feet?czesław miłosz
A million years ago there had been no river here and in a million years to come there might be no river but in a million years from now there would be, if not Man, at least a caring thing. And that was the secret of the universe, Enoch told himself a thing that went on caring.clifford d. simak
She didn’t care. Not caring was how she got through the day.
Man's unfailing capacity to believe what he prefers to be true rather than what the evidence shows to be likely and possible has always astounded me. We long for a caring Universe which will save us from our childish mistakes, and in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary we will pin all our hopes on the slimmest of doubts. God has not been proven not to exist, therefore he must exist.
Bound by paperwork, short on hands, sleep, and energy... nurses are rarely short on caring.
A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.Denis Waitley
Not caring, so that sumpter-horse, the back Be hung with gaudy trappings, in what course Yea, rags most beggarly, they clothe the soul.james russell lowell
I don't think feminism , as I understand the definition, implies the rejection of maternal values, nurturing children, caring about the men in your life. That is just nonsense to me.
...a caring that gains only when losing; an obsessed desire to be bound, for love , in jail ; a capitulation to the one you've conquered yourself; a devotion to your own assassin every single day.
And I honor the man who is willing to sink Half his present repute for the freedom to think, And, when he has thought, be his cause strong or weak, Will risk t'other half for the freedom to speak, caring naught for what vengeance the mob has in store, Let that mob be the upper ten thousand or lower.james russell lowell
caring for God’s endowment in a thrifty fashion is a form of biblical obedience.ted malloch
These trends gave antiabortionists an advantage... they present a sophisticated philosophical and political challenge. caring societies, they say, seek to expand inclusion into "the human community." Those once excluded, such as women and minorities, are now equal. Why not welcome the fetus (who, after all, is us) into our community?Frances kissling
