Monday Does Matter

The purpose of 'Every Monday Matters' is to draw people's attention to the changes each of us can bring to the world around us.   Here are a few words of wisdom on change/service/others...

To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.  Donald Adams

He that does good to another also does good to himself.  Seneca

The fruit of love is service,
The fruit of service is peace,
And peace begins with a smile.  Mother Teresa
Without your wounds where would your power be?  The very angels themselves cannot persuade the wretched and blundering children on earth as can one human being broken in the wheels of living.  In love's service, only the wounded soldiers can serve.  Thorton Wilder
The highest of distinctions is service to others.  King George VI
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to
improve the world.  Anne Frank
We are here on Earth to do good to others. What the others are here for, I don't know.  W. H. Auden
So tell me, what is your favorite way to serve others/make change/do good to those around you?


  1. I love the sun coming thru the clouds and contrast with Pender Island in the foreground.

    My all time favorite service quote was discovered while we were building the orphanage in Mexico and sometimes volunteers... usually high school kids, seemed like they had come for a vacation and wanted to avoid work if at all posible.

    "We are here to do good to others. If you are here for any other reason, you are in the wrong place."

  2. Nice rainbow quotes, Ma. Very subtle. I have had difficulties getting my colors so lovely on my blog... I'll have to sit at the feet of the color master (you!). xo

  3. These are great the colors you chose!
