Volunteering brings you closer to home and community.
Too often we under-estimate the power of touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor is given by what he gave.
It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot tougher to make a difference.
You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
Give what you have. To someone it may be better than you dare think.
Everyone can be great, because everyone can serve.
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
