service

A Quote by Geoffrey Parsons on emotion, ideas, religion, and service

To feel the right emotions is fully as important as to hold the right ideas, and the great service of religion is the development of the right emotions.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on desires, habits, happiness, service, and world

Consciously or unconsciously, every one of us does render some service or other. If we cultivate the habit of doing this service deliberately, our desire for service will steadily grow stronger, and will make, not only for our own happiness, but that of the world at large.

A Quote by Frederick W. Smith on ideas, management, order, service, and students

A Yale University management professor in response to student Fred Smith's paper proposing reliable overnight delivery service: The concept is interesting and well-formed, but in order to earn better than a 'C', the idea must be feasible.

A Quote by Frederick A. P. Barnard on college, day, service, victory, and winning

Addressing the Columbia crew after winning the intercollegiate regatta: I congratulate you most heartily upon the splendid victory you have won, and the luster you have shed upon the name of Columbia College. I thank you for the Faculty of the College, for the manifest service you have done to this institution. . . . I am convinced that in one day or in one summer, you have done more to make Columbia College known than all your predecessors have done since the foundation of the college by this, your great triumph.

A Quote by Frank C. Lockwood on achievement, beauty, duty, happiness, life, service, and path

It is not so much what we get out of life as what we put into it that determines how large our returns of happiness shall be. The triumphant life is to be achieved through service. But it must be free and not compulsory. . . . There is a place where the path of duty suddenly becomes the path of beauty.

A Quote by Francis Elizabeth Willard on day, family, good, hope, people, praise, service, and world

Wanted: More Praise I cannot help believing that the world will be a better and a happier place when people are praised more and blamed less; when we utter in their hearing the good we think and also gently intimate the criticisms we hope may be of service. For the world grows smaller every day. It will be but a family circle after a while.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on brothers, confession, god, humility, life, people, pride, service, and sister

The antidote for pride is humility - meekness, submissiveness. . . . God will have a humble people. Either we can choose to be humble or we can be compelled to be humble. . . . We can choose to humble ourselves by conquering enmity toward our brothers and sisters, esteeming them as ourselves, and lifting them as high or higher than we are. . . . We can choose to humble ourselves by receiving counsel and chastisement, . . . by forgiving those who have offended us, . . . by rendering selfless service, . . . by going on missions and preaching the word that can humble others, . . . by getting to the temple more frequently, [and] by confessing and forsaking our sins and being born of God. . . . We can choose to humble ourselves by loving God, adjusting our will to His, and putting Him first in our lives.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on circumstances, feeling, improvement, kindness, love, overcoming, promises, and service

The key to overcoming aloneness and a feeling of uselessness for one who is physically able is to step outside yourself by helping others who are truly needy. We promise those who will render this kind of service that, in some measure, you will be healed of the loss of loved ones or the dread of being alone. The way to feel better about your own situation is to improve someone else's circumstances.
