Quote for April 5, 2006

“We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobile rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to mankind…Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    Dr. King aptly describes the mind set of most of the world, and says what humans should be doing instead. This quote probably made a lot of people uncomfortable.

    I Agree, so many people think about how they are better than others because of the things they have, when they should be thinking about what they do and can do for others.

  3. Torie

    I agree with this quote. In the community service I have done I have learned that the quality of my work and people skills is more important than anything else.

    I agree. The relationship between ones salary and his/her success and the amount of respect received by others is quite large. In my opinion some people seem to think that, for example, if an item of clothing is from a well known and expensive brand (prada, gucci, etc…) then ofcourse it will be better. This simply is not true. And the fact that this idea carries over into the value of people is ridiculous!
