(COVER) "It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
IT ALL BEGINS WITH CARE
(PAGE 1) Caring creates connections that take us outside ourselves, fling us far from our own worries, make us bigger, richer, deeper and more aware.
(PAGE 2) Care takes us beyond our own lives. It identifies with. It understands, feeling another's fears, needs and happiness. It is empathy, which looks not at a mirror, but through a window.
(PAGE 3) Caring adds meaning to the mundane...enlists the emotions...gives purpose ...makes us more alive.
(PAGE 4) Like a guardian angel, care is protective; always on guard, looking out for. And it cannot be bullied or bought.
(PAGE 5) Care is a tapestry, rich and complex, woven with threads of thought as soft as compassion, as insubstantial as a sigh, that hangs joyously on bare walls of unconcern and decorates our world.
(PAGE 6) Care is warm. Care makes us thoughtful. Beautiful. Humble. Inquisitive. And uniquely human.
When we - each of the thinking, feeling people at Caremark - can breathe that human spark into all we do, Caremark becomes not just an "it," but a "we," the unified voice of a greater whole, a single vision that is remarkably, wonderfully individual.
(PAGE 7) Care makes us a trusted partner and advisor. A sounding board, an ongoing source of pride, growth and success.
When we care about what we do, the passion shows. We are happier, healthier, more fulfilled. We do better, we feel better. We are better. And it all begins with care.
