Explore the value of Stewardship
A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.
I believe that every right implies a responsibility; every opportunity an obligation; every possession a duty.
John D. Rockefeller, Jr.
There's a magical tie to the land of our home, which the heart cannot break, though the footsteps may roam.
Today we are faced with a challenge that calls for a shift in our thinking, so that humanity stops threatening its life-support system. We are called to assist the Earth to heal her wounds and in the process heal our own - indeed to embrace the whole of creation in all its diversity, beauty and wonder. Recognizing that sustainable development, democracy and peace are indivisible is an idea whose time has come.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm. As you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.
Lyndon B. Johnson
For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of responsibility that comes with his freedom.
Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman]

I was wondering if there is a Jane Goodall Stewardship billboard in the Chicago area?
My friend and I are big fans of both Goodall and values.com and are trying to get a picture.

Correction - stewardship is the taking care of something. The person with that responsibility is the steward.
