-- Note Book of Elbert Hubbard


Vivisection is the blackest of all the black crimes that man is at present committing against God and His fair creation. It ill becomes us to invoke in our daily prayers the blessings of God, the Compassionate, if we in turn will not practise elementary compassion toward our fellow creatures.

When a thing exists which you really abhor, I wish you would remember a little whether in letting it strictly alone you are minding your own business on principle, or simply because it is comfortable to do so.

--John Galsworthy, 1867-1933, in 'A Sheaf'


Men are governed only by serving them; the rule is without exception.

- V. Cousin


Vision without action is merely a dream.
Action without vision just passes the time.
Vision with action can change the world.

Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

Martin Luther King

Only when the last tree has died and the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been caught will we realise that we can't eat money.

Cree proverb
