How Much Does He Care?

"Life should be all living, and not merely a tedious passing of time; not all doing or all feeling or all thinking—the strain would be too great—but, all living; that is to say, we should be in touch wherever we go, whatever we hear, whatever we see, with some manner of vital interest…The question is not,—how much does the youth know? when he has finished his education—but how much does he care?"

    Oh, this is one of my favorites–Macbeth emailed the longer version to CCM years ago and it’s been taped above my computer ever since. I love, “Thou hast set my feet in a large room; should be the glad cry of every intelligent soul…” The whole paragraph is wonderful.
