“The Only ones among us who will really be happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve,” said Nobel Prize laureate, Albert Schweitzer.

Self-esteem, happiness as an end in itself, recognition, notoriety, and prosperity theology are themes that sell today. Motivated by such themes, persons have turned inward rather than turning loose, and as a result have become stagnant rather than flowing with life.

Francis of Assisi’s quote resonates with happiness, “It is in giving that we receive.” For a meaningful life try giving yourself away by serving others. Persons desiring such a fulfilling life will find “Servants Not Celebrities” stimulating as well as enjoyable. This book is full of examples and exhortations inspiring excellence. It is motivation full of meaning.

The Greek physician Hippocrates described four basic temperament types. For a truly happy life add a fifth: a servant temperament.
