H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
The need for devotion to something outside ourselves is even more profound than the need for companionship. If we are not to go to pieces or wither away, we must have some purpose in life; for no man can live for himself alone.
The value of life is not based on how long we live, but how much we contribute to others in our society.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
Whatever I am offered in devotion with a pure heart - a leaf, a flower, fruit, or water - I accept with joy.
