Where does greatness lie? The answer is simple: in doing more for others than we do for ourselves.
Throughout history, the measure of greatness, in its fullest and most enduring definition, is constant: it is the scale, scope, and weight of contributions (not acquisitions or conquests) by women and men to their fellow human beings.
So when we seek wealth, let us include charity. When we seek power, let us include compassion. When we seek fame, let us include anonymous acts of generosity and kindness.
For without these added ingredients, our accomplishments may be notable, but they will never be great.
