We find greatest joy, not in getting, but in expressing what we are. Men do not really live for honors or for pay; their gladness is not the taking and holding, but in doing, the striving, the building, the living. It is a higher joy to teach than to be taught.

The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself. —R.J. Baughan
The more we share the more we have. —Leonard Nimoy
