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.
