    • “The happiest people I know are busy loving and helping others. That gives them a lot of meaning and purpose in their lives. It keeps them young, motivated and energized. Some people seem to think that servant-leaders live stoic, dutiful lives of self-denial. The servant-leaders I know are living joyful lives. In serving and healing others, we are healed, we are fulfilled, we are made whole. ” (p. 104)  from The Servant As Leader (Contemporary edition), 2016, by Kent M Keith, editor
