“My Concern is not what happens to me when I die, but the good I did for society and mankind when I am alive. For the good I did to myself die with me, but the good I did for the society and mankind lives forever”.
"True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost." --Arthur Ashe
