Sacrifice



Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice,
and is never the result of selfishness.
- Napoleon Hill

He who would accomplish much must sacrifice much.
- James Allen

Be unselfish.
That is the first and final commandment for those who
would be useful and happy in their usefulness.
If you think of yourself only, you cannot develop because
you are choking the source of development,
which is spiritual expansion through thought for others.
- Charles William Eliot

When people get caught up with that which is right
and they are willing to sacrifice for it,
there is no stopping point short of victory.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Life is a song - sing it.
Life is a game - play it.
Life is a challenge - meet it.
Life is a dream - realize it.
Life is a sacrifice - offer it.
Life is love - enjoy it.
- Sai Baba


The word "sacrifice" is an interesting word because it is usually associated with suffering - but that association is illogical. To "sacrifice" means to give up something you want in order to get something you want even more. You "sacrifice" eating deserts in order to get things that are much more valuable to you: good health and a longer life. If you didn't think those things were more important than the deserts, you wouldn't make that choice. So, trading the lesser for the greater should be a source of joy, right? But we suffer because we want the greater AND the lesser. Such is human nature.
