“Caring is at the heart of learning. The care a student takes-in approaching a task, in checking the answer to a problem, in explaining to others how she arrived at a solution-is a measure of her thoughtfulness and self-respect as a learner. A teacher who cares about the quality of attention students bring to a task is a teacher who can help make passionate learning happen.”

The Passionate Learner by Robert L. Fried, p 117
