Quote of the Week 5

August 14, 2011

“People want to know how much you care before they care how much you know.”

I’ve heard this quote numerous times before, but most recently read it on Mike Boyle’s blog. It is spot-on. If you’re able to show that you care about a person, they will let you slip on things you might now know. You can overcome knowledge with compassion. It’s harder to overcome compassion with knowledge.
