Real Compassion

"When I hear people say: ‘I want the old Tony Blair back, the one who cares’, I'll tell you something: I don’t think, that as a human being, as a family man, I’ve changed at all. But I have changed as a leader. I have come to realize that caring in politics isn’t really about ‘caring’. It’s about doing what you think is right and sticking to it."

The Prime Minister of Great Britain, October, 2004

Worrying about what other people think of us could certainly be an impediment to real compassion.
