Some of my Favourite Quotations

Love, Service, Charity, Friendship

Try to find happiness in every day. At least once
smile to each other every day and say just one extra
time that you love the person who live with you.
Just say "I love you".

Ekatarina Gordeeva

Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your
own house. Give love to your children, to your wife
or husband, to a next door neighbour... Let no one
ever come to you without leaving better and happier.
Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness
in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your
smile, kindness in your warm greeting.

Mother Teresa

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 only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

Martin Luther King Jr.

Perhaps the greatest social service that can be
rendered by anybody to the country and to mankind
is to bring up a family.

George Bernard Shaw

No man is an island, entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continent, a part of
the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory
were, as well as if a manor of thy friends, or of
thine own were; any man's death diminishes me,
beacause I am involved in Mankind; and there-
fore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
it tolls for thee.

John Donne

Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the
fatherless, and him that had none to help him.
The blessing of him that was ready to perish came
upon me: and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.
I put on righteousness, and it clothed me:
my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.
I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.
I was a father to the poor: and the cause which
I knew not I searched out.

Job 29

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels,
and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass,
or a tinkling cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all
mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith,
so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity,
I am nothing.
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor,
and though I give my body to be burned, and have not
charity, it profiteth me nothing.
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not;
charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own,
is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things,
endureth all things. Charity never faileth:
but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail;
whether there be tongues, they shall cease;
whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

1 Corinthians 13
