I think this quote is particularly relevant in the United States at this time.
Those who serve supreme causes must not consider what they can get but what they can give.

Especially if you are serving. I wonder if some people know what it means to serve.
Life it seems it not without a sense of irony.
Good point about service. It is what one has the privilege to give.
