15. Try Selflessness

Give back and practice generosity

Life is not about warming yourself by the fire, life is about building the fire. And generosity is the match...If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap, but if you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.

- Larry Luchino
Commencement Address at Boston University, 2008


The great and curious truth of the human experience is that selflessness is the best thing you can do for yourself.

- David McCullough Jr.
Commencement Address at Wellesdly High School 2012


One day you will understand that it is harder to be kind than to be clever.

From the Graduation Wisdom Quotes Collection:


Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.

- James M. Barrie


When the dreams you're dreamin' come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

Don't expect a free ride from no one
Don't hold a grudge or a chip and here's why
Bitterness keeps you from flyin'
Always stay humble and kind

- Tim McGraw, "Humble and Kind"
