It is so true. Serving others is a humbling example to our children.


We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy. —Joseph Campbell
If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. —Henry David Thoreau
You have to know what you want to get. But when you know that, let it take you. And if it seems to take you off the track, don't hold back because perhaps that is instinctively where you want to be. —Gertrude Stein
You must give everything to make your life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in your imagination —Roman Payne
A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. —Steve Maraboli
We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.  —Martin Luther King, Jr.
When you realize nothing is lacking, the whole world belongs to you. —Lao Tzu
Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. —Helen Keller
Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great purpose in heart. —Gordon B. Hinckley
Generosity consists not the sum given, but the manner in which it is bestowed. —Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
There are those whose lives affect all others around them. Quietly touching one heart, who in turn, touches another. Reaching out to ends further than they would ever know. —William Bradfield
Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work. —Vince Lombardi
It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things. —Leonardo da Vinci
I speak not for myself but for those without voice… those who have fought for their rights… their right to live in peace, their right to be treated with dignity, their right to equality of opportunity, their right to be educated. —Malala Yousafzai
The capacity for getting along with our neighbor depends to a large extent on the capacity for getting along with ourselves. The self-respecting individual will try to be as tolerant of his neighbor's shortcomings as he is of his own. —Eric Hoffer
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. —Melody Beattie
