He profits most who serves best.
Sheldon had attended the 1910 convention in Chicago, and had spoken a similar phrase to the assembled delegates, He profits most who serves his fellows best. When the reading of the Business Methods report was finished, Pinkham jumped to his feet and said, Here is a positive affirmation packaged in six words. Those words should be put into Rotary's platform. The conventioneers agreed with a thunderous round of applause and a standing ovation. The Rotary Platform passed by acclamation on a voice vote. http://www.rotaryhistoryfellowship.org/leaders/sheldon/platform.htm
