To desire and strive to be of some service to the world, to aim at doing something which shall really increase the happiness and welfare and virtue of mankind – this is a choice which is possible for all of us and surely it is a good haven to sail for.
Henry Van Dyke
More Henry van Dyke Jr. quotes :
There is a loftier ambition than merely to stand high in the world. It is to stoop down and lift mankind a little higher.Henry van Dyke Jr.
Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.Henry Van Dyke
