If you want to be important, Wonderful
if you want to be recognized, Wondeful
if you want to be great, Wonderful
but recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.
That's a new definition of greatness.
And this morning the thing that I like about it: by giving that definition of greatness it means that everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.
You don't have to have a college degree to serve;
you don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve;
you don't have to know about Plato and Aristotele to serve;
you don't have to know Einstein's theory of relativity to serve;
you don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve;
you only need a heart full of grace,
a soul generated by love...
and you can be that servant.Martin Luther King Jr.Discorso tenuto alla chiesa battista Ebenezer, Atlanta, Georgia, 4 February 1968
