What is a hospital volunteer? 

 

"A volunteer is a person who is a light to others, giving withness in a mixed-up age, doing well and willingly the tasks at hand - namely, being aware of another's needs and doing something about it."

"It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little -- do what you can." - Sydney Smith
 
"A volunteer is a person whose charity is fidelity, who is faithful in an unfaithful world, giving when all about are grasping, listening when others need to tell about their fears and problems."
 
"A volunteer is a person who remembers to do the thing to make other people happy, who takes the loneliness out of the alone by talking to them, who is concerned when others are unconcerned, who has the courage to be a prophet and to say the things that have to be said for the good of all."
