"If you want to be important—wonderful. If you want to be recognized—wonderful. If you want to be great—wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. That's a new definition of greatness...it means that everybody can be great (Everybody) because everybody can serve."

- Martin Luther King, Jr. (from The Drum Major Instinct Speech, 1968)
