Around South County: Brief Thoughts 4 the Day

South County is ever so vibrant.    One of the more interesting reports I reviewed was in the Monday Edition of the Orange County Register On honoring volunteerism.   It was so gratifying to see all who were honored for their service to the Community.

As I reflected upon this, I view these "thoughts" as ever so timely on that sense of service which is ever so gratifying:

The purpose of human life is to serve,
and to show compassion and the will to help others.
- Albert Schweitzer 

A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything
and the value of nothing.
- Oscar Wilde

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young,
compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving
and tolerant of the weak and the strong.
Because someday in life you will have been all of these.
- George Washington Carver 

The value of a man should be seen in what he gives
and not in what he is able to receive.
- Albert Einstein

Freedom is never dear at any price.
It is the breath of life.
What would a man not pay for living?
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi 

The ultimate test of a man's conscience
may be his willingness to sacrifice something today
for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard.
- Gaylord Nelson
