“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.”
An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while the pessimist sees only the red spotlight… The truly wise person is colour-blind.
“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” –Albert Schweitzer, philosopher, physician, musician, Nobel laureate (1875-1965).

"A man can do only what a man can do. But if he does that each day he can sleep at night and do it again the next day." ~ Albert Schweitzer.
