61 Make A Difference Quotes

Be inspired and motivated by these make a difference quotes. You do make a difference in the lives of those around you. And never think you don't make a difference because you can only do a little. That little bit that you do may make a huge difference in the life of someone else.

As was so eloquently stated by Ralph Waldo Emerson, "The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well." It is not the selfish who live and create, help and support those who are in need. It is instead the unselfish who would rather be living proof of putting words of compassion and thoughtfulness into measurable action that makes the real and lasting difference in this world.
