MatchBack Monday: September 5

It’s the first day back after a long weekend. We’re sorry. Perk up today’s grind with some wise words (which we didn’t write) that we hope will inspire you to Do Good as we jump into the week:

 People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

 Be sure to taste your words before you spit them out.

 Never look down on anybody unless you are helping them up.

 Instead of putting others in their place, put yourself in theirs.

 No one has ever become poor by giving.

 Kindness is the language that the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

Pick a quote, any quote—pledge to live by any one of them today and you are pretty much guaranteed to have a more fulfilling, successful, and happy week.

We are focused on our commitment to Do Good this week, and hope that you will join us because (as one of our favorite 20th century British poets, W.H. Auden, put it) “we are here on earth to do good to others. What the others are here for, [we] don’t know.”

 So, are you with us?
