For it is in giving that we receive.
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?
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.
Leadership is based on inspiration, not domination; on cooperation, not intimidation.
I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
Volunteerism is being selfless and serving the community in a way that we wouldn’t naturally do. We are more inclined to be selfish, but the organizations at the Volunteer Fair give us an opportunity to give back.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
Good work is seldom done by accident. It is done by people who care.
Volunteering brings you closer to home and community.
Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.
