“To those of you with your years of service still ahead, the challenge is yours. Stop doubting yourselves. Have the courage to make up your minds and hold your decisions. Refuse to be BOUGHT for a nickel, or a million dollars, or a job!”
― Mary McLeod Bethune
Whatever glory belongs to the race for a development unprecedented in history for the given length of time, a full share belongs to the womanhood of the race.
— Mary McLeod Bethune
Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes, but by the opposition he or she has overcome to reach his goals. Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life.
