People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care.

People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care. - proof of how selfish people are.

Because if you "don't care," that means you most likely won't help them and/or you are of no use to them. And if you have no use for them, they won't care about you.

Why can't we just appreciate how smart or talented or beautiful people are regardless if we have something to gain from it?

Ok, I'm done being a cynical asshole for today.
