Quotes that Inspire Me

| April 1, 2010
Picture For the past year, I have served as Secretary for the campus chapter of Habitat for Humanity. As such, I was responsible for maintaining the chapter website. One of the first things I did to revamp the website was to add inspirational quotes. In the course of looking for these, I compiled my own list of quotes related to community service that inspire me. I hope to pick one of these each week and talk about how they relate to my life.
