My thoughts on these quotes

Saturday, 5 December is International Volunteer Day, and that’s why I’ve collected my favorite quotes on the topic of volunteering. I was most touched by the question of Martin Luther King Jr. What do you do for others ?, and the thought of Albert Pike explains that what we do for others is immortal. Very significant. In H. Jackson Brown Jr. He says those who give more than receive are happier.

I have worked as a volunteer on many projects for the past 15 years, and the most precious memories are when I helped others with my work, solved a problem for them, made their lives easier, or brightened up a day. And that will be a part of me forever.

These are my thoughts on the topic of volunteering and quotes for this week. I will be happy if you share your thoughts with me in the comments.

I prepare video with new positive thoughts for the coming week every Sunday, with proverbs, or quotes from famous writers, poets, philosophers, celebrities, and photos from different authors, and post it on YouTube. You can watch this week video on this link:

    Hi Nina,

    I found your post really interesting read and motivational. As always, you really motivate us! I personally loved this quote and also it resonates with me: “Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.”
    H. Jackson Brown Jr.

    This is also the law of attraction, the more you give the more you get back. It’s true that we feel the actual happiness when we give, more than when we get something.

    No wonder so many people opt-in for volunteering. The reward is definitely priceless and worthless.

    Many Thanks for inspiring us via this motivational post.

    Nina, you are a credit for helping others with nothing expected in return. Just a certain look on that person’s face says it all.

    Those quotes really hit a nerve and so inspirational.

    Just spending a few minutes first thing in the morning reading quotes like the ones you have listed can set you up for the day.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Hey Nina, thanks for sharing. Very inspirational! I like the quote by Mahatma Gandhi. He was a living and breathing example of the truth behind his words and was a great man indeed. The pleasure is in service. And I’m sure those volunteers do get paid. Maybe not in money, but in something far more valuable than money. In any case, thanks again for sharing this post and keep up an awesome work with your site!
