Grant me courage to serve others; for in service there is true life.

Cesar Chavez

Cesar Chavez spent his life fighting for the American workforce, and in particular Latin American farm workers. A civil rights activist and labor leader, he co-founded (along with Dolores Huerta) the National Farm Workers Association, which became the powerful United Farm Workers labor union. This line is part of a prayer Chavez wrote for farm workers in which he empathized with their struggle. He underlined the importance of serving others, writing, "give me honesty and patience, so that I can work with other workers."
