The Way of Service

By George S. Arundale

Chapter V


— I — 

TRUE devotion is that which serves, not that which clings.

— II — 

IT is better to begin by adapting yourself to your work, rather than to complain because the work does not adapt itself to you.

— III — 

TRUE meditation results in an added power to serve, and in a decreasing absorption in our own personal progress.

— IV — 

PEOPLE who express dissatisfaction with the manner in which their services are recognized have not yet learned what true service really is.
— V — 

BE careful to see that your acts of service surpass your promises.

— VI — 

IT is no true act of service the performance of which prevents you from fulfilling a duty.

— VII — 

IN times of difficulty, silent sympathy is generally more valuable than ignorant activity.

— VIII — 

PEOPLE who feel that there are no services for them to perform often forget the existence of animals and plants.

— IX — 

PEOPLE who have no time in which to give service somehow manage to find plenty of time in which to receive it.

— X — 

ONE of the rarest acts of service is to refrain from judging a person unheard.

— XI — 

OUR illnesses help us to understand that acts of service exist as much in the attitude of the mind as in the activity of the body.
