Make a Difference

You can impress people at a distance, but you can impact them only up close.
Howard Hendricks

I think you have to place the betterment of society, your community and your profession as one of your goals in life. When you do that, you become more productive in general.
Philip Oxley

For whatever reason, God has blessed me with the ability, put me in a position to make these leaps and bounds. I’m fulfilling my part of the bargain, which is to give back and be a positive influence on others.
Denzel Washington

Go out and be a center, a life-giving power, as it were, to a whole community, when an opportunity comes, when you may give life where there is no life, hope where there is no hope, power where there is no power. Begin in a humble way, and work to build up institutions that will put people on their feet.
Booker T. Washington

Help Others

What I spent I had, what I kept I lost, what I gave I have.
Henry Bucher

Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.
1 Peter 4:9

They who give have all things; they who withhold have nothing.
Hindu Proverb

There is no delight in owning anything unshared.
Seneca

Community service is an essential part of becoming an authentic leader. It is in working with people of lesser economic means that you get in touch with the lives of diverse people and develop the heart for leadership.
Bill George

Help Others

You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.
John Bunyan

When one helps another, both gain in strength.
Ecuadorian proverb

The greatest secret to making money and being successful is helping other people make money and be successful.
Deepak Chopra

If you see the donkey of someone who hates you fallen down under its load, do not leave it there; be sure you help him with it.
Exodus 23:5

I have been involved in my community in volunteerism, so I’m very high on helping other folks. And how nice it was to learn that one can get endorphins when you help other people. It’s the same high as runners high, but you only get it from a face-to-face situation, not by just writing a check.

The Power of Music

Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Berthold Auerbach

A home filled with music is an exciting place to be. Play music when you’re doing the dishes; do a little jig when you’re shaking up the orange juice. Your kids will get a kick out of it and you’ll contribute to a pleasant home life that includes good-natured fun.
Judy Ford

Songs are funny things. They can slip across borders. Proliferate in prisons. Penetrate hard shells. I always believed that the right song at the right moment could change history.
Pete Seeger

When people sing together, community is created. Together we rejoice, we celebrate, we mourn and we comfort each other. Through music, we reach each others hearts and souls. Music allows us to find a connection.
Peter Yarrow

When life feels like a grind, change the rhythm. Put on some toe-tapping music and get moving. Hum, whistle along or sing out loud. It’s difficult to stay down when the joy of music surrounds you.
