Every Day Greatness by Stephen R. Covey is one of my favorite books. It just is so encouraging to read. It is a collection of inspirational stories taken from the Reader's Digest. Some are from years ago and some are more recent. Also in the book are quotes and sayings that gets the point of the story across. The book is written in sections. One is about courage, another is about self sacrifice and so on.
One quote that I especially like is: "No man is so poor as to have nothing worth giving: as well might the mountain streamlets say they have nothing to give the sea because they are not rivers. Give what you have. To someone it may be better than you dare think." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Everyone has good qualities in them. Everyone can do something. Every life is important.
