I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live.
~ George Bernard Shaw
Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together.
~ Paul Ryan
Don't underestimate the power of your vision to change the world. Whether that world is your office, your community, an industry or a global movement, you need to have a core belief that what you contribute can fundamentally change the paradigm or way of thinking about problems.
~ Leroy Hood
Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It's important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It's the way in which we ourselves grow and develop.
~ Dorothy Height
Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing.
~ Rollo May
Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.
~ Anthony J. D'Angelo
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
~ Mother Teresa
“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 friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.”
~ John Donne, No Man Is An Island - Meditation XVII
“Strength lies in differences, not in similarities”
~ Stephen R. Covey
No man is an island.
~ John Donne
The sense of community is indispensable…to full self-realization. ~ Herbert J. Muller Go out and make a difference in your community. You don't need endless time and perfect conditions. Do it now. Do it today. Do it for twenty minutes and watch your heart start beating. ~ Barbara Sher The questions asked at the end of life are very simple ones: Did I love well? Did I love the people around me, my community, the earth, in a deep way? And perhaps, Did I live fully? Did I offer myself to life? ~ Jack Kornfield The likelihood that your acts of resistance cannot stop the injustice does not exempt you from acting in what you sincerely and reflectively hold to be the best interests of your community. ~ Susan Sontag There can be no vulnerability without risk; there can be no community without vulnerability; there can be no peace, and ultimately no life, without community. ~ M. Scott Peck I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. ~ George Bernard Shaw If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth. ~ Mitsugi Saotome We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among these fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects. ~ Herman Melville We were born to unite with our fellow men, and to join in community with the human race. ~ Cicero What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured. ~ Kurt Vonnegut
