“It is not enough merely to exist. It’s not enough to say, ‘I’m earning enough to support my family. I do my work well. I’m a good father, husband, churchgoer.’ That’s all very well. But you must do something more. Seek always to do some good, somewhere. Every man has to seek in his own way to realize his true worth. You must give some time to your fellow man. Even if it’s a little thing, do something for those who need help, something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it. For remember, you don’t live in a world all your own. Your brothers are here too.”
