"Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve.
You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You
don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to
serve...You don't have to know the second theory of
thermodynamics in physics to serve. "You only need
a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
