The Volunteer's Creed

The Volunteer's Creed

To laugh often and love much; win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; appreciate beauty; find the best in others; give of one's self; leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - this is to have succeeded.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
