I believe in God, only I spell it NATURE. - Frank Lloyd Wright

The great secret of success is to go through life as a man who never gets used up. That is possible for him who never argues and strives with men and facts, but in all experience retires upon himself, and looks for the ultimate cause of things in himself. - Albert Schweitzer, Memoirs of Childhood and Youth

Only by means of reverence for life can we establish a spiritual and humane relationship with both people and all living creatures within our reach. Only in this fashion can we avoid harming others, and, within the limits of our capacity, go to their aid whenever they need us. - Albert Schweitzer, Reverence for Life

It does not matter so much what you do. What matters is whether your soul is harmed by what you do. - Albert Schweitzer, Reverence for Life

Any religion or philosophy which is not based on a respect for life is not a true religion or philosophy. - Albert Schweitzer, Reverence for Life

We have learned to tolerate the facts of war: that men are killed en masse —some twenty million in the Second World War —that whole cities and their inhabitants are annihilated by the atomic bomb, that men are turned into living torches by incendiary bombs. We learn of these things from the radio or newspapers and we judge them according to whether they signify success for the group of peoples to which we belong, or for our enemies. When we do admit to ourselves that such acts are the results of inhuman conduct, our admission is accompanied by the thought that the very fact of war itself leaves us no option but to accept them. In resigning ourselves to our fate without a struggle, we are guilty of inhumanity. - Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Lecture: The Problem of Peace (November 4, 1954)

Do something for somebody every day for which you do not get paid. - Attributed to Albert Schweitzer

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. - Attributed to Albert Schweitzer

There is no higher religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed. - Attributed to Albert Schweitzer

Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace. - Attributed to Albert Schweitzer

Instinct leads, logic does but follow. - William James

Not everyone can be famous ~ but everyone can be great, because greatness is determined by service. - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

There is no higher religion than human service. To work for the common good is the greatest creed. - Woodrow Wilson

I believe that every human mind feels pleasure in doing good to another - Thomas Jefferson

We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone. - Loretta Scott

That service is the noblest which is rendered for its own sake - Mohandas K Gandhi

How can I be useful, or what service can I be? There is something inside me, what can it be? - Vincent Van Gogh

I don't know if it's the age that I'm at or if it's the experiences that I've had, but I'm at a point now where I want to learn where I can best do something good, you know? - Renée Zellweger

How can I serve? How can I be used? - Oprah

To me, being an American means everybody has the freedom to live as they wish to live as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else. And I believe the founders of this country did not intend religious dogma to be inserted into governmental policy. - Marianne Williamson

Anyone who knows history, particularly the history of Europe, will, I think, recognize that the domination of education or of government by any one particular religious faith is never a happy arrangement for the people. - Eleanor Roosevelt

Friendship with ones self is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world. - Eleanor Roosevelt

I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiousity must be kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life. - Eleanor Roosevelt

In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. - Eleanor Roosevelt

It is not more vacation we need - it is more vocation. - Eleanor Roosevelt

Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday. - Eleanor Roosevelt

I would not be happy unless I had some regular work to do every day and I imagine that I will always feel that way no matter how old I am. - Eleanor Roosevelt

It is not by accident that the happiest people are those who make a conscious effort to live useful lives. Their happiness, of course, is not a shallow exhilaration where life is one continuos intoxicating party. Rather, their happiness is a deep sense of inner peace that comes when they believe their lives have meaning and that they are making a difference for good in the world. - Ernest A. Fitzgerald

Wild beasts and birds are by right not the property merely of the people who are alive today, but the property of unknown generations, whose belongings we have no right to squander. - Theodore Roosevelt
