    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“[I]t is taught that willing and voluntary service to others is the highest duty and glory in human life. The men of talent are constantly forced to serve the rest. They make the discoveries and inventions, order the battles, write the books, and produce the works of art. The benefit and enjoyment go to the whole. There are those who joyfully order their own lives so that they may serve the welfare of mankind.”
