Let’s put an end to poverty world-wide!
“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
What does it mean to make a difference? Have you thought about making a difference? Millions of people are out volunteering, serving, and giving in their communities across the globe. We really can make a positive impact in our community, business, friendship, class, country, or city. It can be as natural as breathing.
Robert F. Kennedy
“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
― Robert F. Kennedy
“It's the action, not the fruit of the action, that's important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there'll be any fruit. But that doesn't mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
“All men want, not something to do with, but something to do, or rather something to be.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Martin Luther King Jr.
“No work is insignificant. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up
“I believe in work. If somebody doesn't create something, however small it may be, he gets sick. An awful lot of people feel that they're treading water -- that if they vanished in smoke, it wouldn't mean anything at all in this world. And that's a despairing and destructive feeling. It'll kill you.”
― Arthur Miller
Have you ever walked into a public place, a store, a restaurant and just felt alone? Did you wonder why everyone was preoccupied with whatever they were doing rather than acknowledging those around them? Have you ever noticed something that someone was doing and admired them for what they were doing was above and beyond, but didn’t say anything and wished you had?
