Quotes on Service

“Serve man as God. Give food to the hungry, food that is gift of Goddess Nature. Give it with Love and Humility, give it sweetened with the name of the Lord.”– Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba

“The best service is giving a thirsty man a cup of water, and the best time is when he is thirsty. The best type of service is feeding the hungry. Set aside a handful of rice every day while cooking, as an offering to God; each week, feed a few hungry people with it.”– Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
