Another Wonderful Recognition Idea...

I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized as wiser than oneself.

Marlene Dietrich


How could you use 502 of the very best inspirational quotes for those who serve others?


Over the past few years, many busy people have contacted us asking for more inspirational and motivational quotes to share with their volunteers, members and others.

We've always replied with some quotes to get them started. We've also suggested places where they can search for more.  But many other commitments have meant that few people had the time to search for the quotes that they really wanted - quotes specifically for those who serve.


So we decided to do something about it.


We've spent our time collecting, sorting and considering literally 1,000s of quotes to get to those that are the very, very best.  But we wanted you to have a great variety to choose from yourself - so we didn't stop at 100, or 300, or 400 quotes...


We've compiled a great downloadable book packed with 502 inspirational

quotes for those who serve.


So how would you use these inspirational quotes? Let's count some ways...

Handwrite your quotes in your thankyou cards, Christmas cards, birthday cards, postcards and more
Print your quotes, cut and slip into any of your volunteer recognition cards
Print your quotes, re-format and then frame to give as wonderful and ever-changing recognition gifts
Print your quotes onto small cards and laminate as another great volunteer recognition memento

Put your quotes in newsletters to inspire others

Add your quotes to all your marketing material to catch people's attention
Add your quotes to speeches, training workshops and other presentations to motivate others

Have an inspirational quote of the day, week or month to inspire you and others


These are just a few ideas to get you thinking. But remember that however you use quotes, they do truly have the power to go....Beyond Just Words and to inspire, motivate, uplift and truly recognize those who serve - volunteers, members, paid staff and more.

Now here's a few quotes from the book to inspire you now...

When people care for you they can straighten out your soul - Langston Hughes

What we need are more people who specialize in the impossible - Theodore Roethke

I want to thank and pay tribute to all of our volunteers, those dedicated people who believe in all work and no pay - Robert Orben

Here is the test to find whether your mission on earth is finished.  If you’re alive, it isn’t - Richard Bach


And these quotes are just on the first page of the ebook, with hundreds more for you...


Beyond Just Words

502 Inspirational Quotes for Those Who Serve



I have opened it and am enjoying reading all the quotes. Just what I have been looking for to inspire those around me at both my paid and volunteer work. Thanks for this wonderful resource.

Thank you Judy for the eBook. I have always collected quotes and sayings, so it is interesting to see some of those in your book. They certainly are inspirational and I have used them already to personalize the volunteer Christmas cards. It has been a joy to watch the volunteers open their cards and read the message, and see their faces light up. It is definitely worth the extra time and effort. With thanks for compiling it – I know I will find it very useful in newsletters, cards etc.
