Judge each day not by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.

Better than you found it

Leave each place you go better than you found it. Leave each person you encounter better off for having seen you. Leave each circumstance you experience better as a result of your involvement. Make each day better because of how you’ve lived it.

Tread lovingly, considerately and gratefully along the path of your life, and you’ll find that path leading continually upward as a result. Give of yourself at every opportunity, and those opportunities will become increasingly meaningful.

Every self-centered pursuit will eventually grow tiresome and empty. The more you expand your thoughts, your efforts and your focus beyond yourself, the more fulfilling each moment will be.

Spend time and energy in the service of things bigger than yourself. Not only will you help to lift the world higher, you’ll be lifting yourself as well, to places you never could otherwise imagine.

— Ralph Marston
