"To practice a politics of dedication and recognize an indebtedness to the other as the condition to perform means to acknowledge the importance of care. You perform because you care for someone or something. This care gives you the strength to act,
not least because not to act is out of question when someone or something you really care for or about requires you should act.
By definition the 'I Care' implies the potential 'I Can'. Paradoxically, you are freed from the economic regime of demand by virtue of a debt to the other; in other words, the existential demand will always overcome the economic one. And since it is unconditional and existential rather than economical, the 'I Care' is equally the force behind an incommensurable surplus of exuberance."

Jan Verwoert in "Tell me what you want, what you really, really want"
