From a 1986 speech to Peace Corps Volunteers by Sargent Shriver:
“Stay as you are…be servants of peace…work at home as you have worked abroad, humbly, persistently, intelligently.  Weep with those who are sorrowful, rejoice with those who are joyful. Teach those who are ignorant. Care for those who are sick. Serve your wives…serve your families…serve your neighbors…serve your cities…serve the poor. Join others who serve.
Serve, serve, serve!

That’s the challenge.

For in the end it will be the servants who save us all.”

Noted in a book by his son Michael.
