The greater good

Some people do things for fame.

Some people do things for fortune.

Some people do things for the greater good.

It’s interesting reading about Jonas Salk, who discovered one of the first successful vaccines for polio.

When asked who owned the patent to the vaccine he responded “the people”.

He was about saving lives and not worrying about the credit or the profits.

There is nothing wrong with the fame. There is nothing wrong with the fortune. In all honesty, when someone devotes their life to something that saves lives they should get as much fame and fortune as they want BUT it’s nice to know that we have had people who are truly in it for the greater good.

Have a great day!
