quote of the day

One day last week, I was writing a speach while at work, and came across this quote, from Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President. This was said to a group of students at Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania during his first term, in the fall of 1913 - 100 years ago! 

“You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. 
You are here to enrich the world.”

So many years later, this quote still rings true, and I find it to be an inspiration. I was happy to find it, and I think that we can all learn something from it, and it can serve as encouragement for us to find ways to share what we have with others, think about our purpose in life, and what our contribution to the world will be. 

What is your favorite inspirational quote?
