"The purpose of life is much more than to live for oneself; it is to be useful and compassionate to others. Only by giving are we able to become the good person we are meant to be; only by giving are we able to receive more than we already have. What I spent I had, what I saved I lost and what I gave, I have! The bottom line is that wholesomeness cannot be achieved alone and doing nothing to help another when something helpful can be done, will prove the undoing of every man.
There is nothing more beautiful to see than unselfish love in action. No more rewarding experience can an individual have than to go out of their way to make better the life of another. Even where mild criticism is required to ensure correction, one's criticism should be as constructive as the blessed rain in a desert; gentle enough to nourish the future growth without destroying their roots. The mark of a good person and the living of a good life is to have made a difference in someone else's.
The very next opportunity you have to hold out your hand in friendship or can embrace the life of another with love and affection, rejoice in the certain knowledge that you are making a difference and say, 'Thanks for today.'" William Forde: March 22nd, 2016.
