george eliot life quote
What do we live for if not to make the world less difficult for each other? ~George Eliot

I really do believe this. For years I’ve had a quote attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson posted near my desk and as part of my email signatures: “To know one life has breathed easier because you have lived–THIS is to have succeeded.” What are we here for if not to benefit others?

Today’s quote came courtesy of Everyday Power: Inspiration. Education. Impact., a blog that I’ve been following for a while now. You should go follow it, too!
