Famous quotes containing the word service:

    You had to face your ends when young
    ‘Twas wine or women, or some curse
    But never made a poorer song
    That you might have a heavier purse,
    Nor gave loud service to a cause
    That you might have a troop of friends.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The more the specific feelings of being under obligation range themselves under a supreme principle of human dependence the clearer and more fertile will be the realization of the concept, indispensable to all true culture, of service; from the service of God down to the simple social relationship as between employer and employee.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    The master class seldom lose a chance to insult a woman who has the ability for something besides service to his lordship.
    Caroline Nichols Churchill (1833–?)
