Stolen Quote: Stray Dogs

Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these. ~ Susan B. Anthony

There’s one way to get the “stray dogs” to leave. Stop providing them with free food and beer.

Stolen Quote: Service

As far as service goes, it can take the form of a million things. To do service, you don’t have to be a doctor working in the slums for free, or become a social worker. Your position in life and what you do doesn’t matter as much as how you do what you do. ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

So if you work at the DMV, just put on a friendly face, and you’ll be doing the world a service.
