What’s Better?

What’s going to be more powerful: your philosophical treatise, or love?

What’s going to change people more: your opinions and your ability to express those opinions, or showing people that you care about them?

If we had an entire planet of philosophers, 7-billion of them, all sharing opinions about how life should be lived and how society should be organized, would that be better than 7-billion people committed to caring for one another?

And if you’re going to share your opinions, would it be better to do it before, or after, you’ve shown the listener that you care about them?
