Monday Inspiration – Give, Help, & Be Kind

The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good – Samuel Johnson

It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice. – Author Unknown

The true essence of humankind is kindness. There are other qualities which come from education or knowledge, but it is essential, if one wishes to be a genuine human being and impart satisfying meaning to one’s existence, to have a good heart. – Tenzin Gyatso

What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal. – Albert Pine

Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth. – Mohammed Ali

Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways it can change someone else’s life forever. – Margaret Cho

Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another’s pain, life is not in vain. – Helen Keller

Everybody can be great.  Because anybody can serve.  You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.  You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve….You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve.  You only need a heart full of grace.  A soul generated by love.  – Martin Luther King, Jr.

If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Up to his nest again, I shall not live in vain. – Emily Dickinson
