“An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up” (Prov. 12:25).
Dr. Leonard Cammer, a psychiatrist who has specialized for thirty years in treating depressed persons, said, “The human being is the only species that can’t survive alone. The human being needs another human being – otherwise he’s dead! A telephone call to a depressed person can save a life. An occasional word, a ten-minute visit, can be more effective than twenty-four hours of nursing care. You can buy nursing care. You can’t buy love.”
