Take my advice: Set yourselves wholly to the service of others, when you come from your colleges. Believe me, far greater happiness would then be yours than if you have had a whole treasury full of money and other valuables at your command.
In the world, take always the position of the giver; help, give service, give any little thing you can, but keep out barter.
This life is short, the vanities of the world are transient, but they alone live who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive.
I am convinced that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my duty and privilege to do for it whatever I can: for the harder I work, the longer I live; the more I give in charity, the more I get. I rejoice in life for its own sake, life is no brief candle to me, but it is a sort of an illuminating torch which is given to me by Almighty God for a moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible brightening the lives and illumining the paths of others before passing it over to future generation.
George Bernard Shaw
They call me the Prime Minister of India, but it would be more appropriate if I were called the first servant of India. In this age, it is not the title and position that matter but service.
Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru
