"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 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."
"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?"
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
