Quaker Peace

Quaker Peace
When maintaining a belief that one of the most valuable efforts that we can make is to provide care for another, then the worst thing that we can do is pretend to look after another person when, in fact, we are doing something else.

This distinction, upon which possibly much of our sense of morality depends, is often unclear, because we are always likely to be doing both things at once (along with several others). Claims of love or unconditional care for another are not enough, for we also need to be aware of what is being taken when we take care of another.
