1 Service Learning Cathy Hart & Michele Sullivan IDOE, what ever we are…. March 7, 2002

2 Changing History Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation. –Robert F. Kennedy June 6, 1966

3 Service = Happiness I do not know which will be the destiny of each one of you; But one think I do know. The only ones among you who will be really happy will be those who have sought and found the way to serve. Albert Schweitzer

4 Small Words - Big Actions We have too many high-sounding words, and too few actions that correspond with them. –Abigail Adams –U.S. feminist & wife of President John Adams

5 Significant Insight What lies ahead of us, and what lies behind us are insignificant to what lives within us. –Oliver Wendell Holmes 1858

6 Just Thinking If everybody is thinking alike then somebody isn’t thinking. –General George S. Patton 1945

7 Why or Why Not? Some men see things as they are and say “why?’. I dream things that never were and say, “why not?’ –John F. Kennedy, President, 1960-1963

8 Silence In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. –Martin Luther king, JR. 1929-1968

9 Contributions When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die. –Eleanor Roosevelt

10 Responsibility Responsibility is the thing people dread most of all. Yet it is the one thing in the world that develops us… –Frank Crane

11 One is Not a Lonely Number I am the only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do. –Helen Keller

12 Just a Matter of Time If every American donated five hours a week, it would equal the labor of 20 million full-time volunteers. –Whoopi Goldberg

13 Perseverance We can do anything we want if we stick to it long enough. –Helen Keller

14 Let’s Talk A good discussion increases the dimensions of everyone who takes part. –Randolph Bourne

15 Practice Makes People Where do we think citizens come from? You can’t enter full-blown into public life at 35. You need to practice. Practice should start early - - at age 12-14. –Danny Schillings

16 Change is Good Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. –Margaret Mead

17 Actions Speak Louder than Words How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world –Anne Frank

18 To Serve and To Learn The servant-leader is servant first….it begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve, first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead…the difference manifests itself in the care taking by the servant-first to make sure that other people’s highest priority needs are being served. The ‘best test’ and difficult to administer, is: do those being served grow as persons; do they while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged in society; will they benefit, or at least, not be further deprived? –Robert Greenleaf

19 Happiness Is... If you want happiness for an hour, –take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, –go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, –inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, –help someone else. –Old Chinese Proverb

20 The Gift of Giving The greatest grace of a gift, perhaps, is that it anticipates and admits of no return. –Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

21 Service… The Greatest Gift Anyone can be great….because anyone can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace - a soul generated by love. –Martin Luther King, Jr.

22 Character If you think about what you ought to do for other people, your character will take care of itself. –President Woodrow Wilson

23 Wisdom of Dr. Seuss You have brains in your head, you have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. »Dr. Seuss

24 Just Do Something I am only one, but still, I am one. I cannot do everything but I can do something. And, because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do what I can –Helen Keller

25 Trail Blazing Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. –Anonymous
