“it wasn’t his love for humanity that got the baker up at 4 a.m. to warm his ovens.” The Biggest Fools on the Planet

Don’t worry about whether caring actually makes a damned bit of difference.

Don’t concern yourself whether meddling in others’ lives really helps them.

Ignore Adam Smith’s insight… that it wasn’t his love for humanity that got the baker up at 4 a.m. to warm his ovens. Most likely, Smith was right; world improvement is a by-product of trying to improve your own life, not trying to change the world itself. And Friedrich Hayek was probably right, too; trying to improve the world by inflicting your ideas on others does more harm than good.

But at UVM, all you gotta do is care! And if you don’t care; you don’t exist.
