The internet makes readily-available to us thousands of quotes on serving others, within or without the context of Christianity.  Below are a few brief quotes on serving by well-known Christian leaders, authors and theologians that may be thought-provoking:

“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
-       John Wesley

“The only way you can serve God is by serving other people.
-       Rick Warren

“Have you ever realized that you can give things to God that are of value to Him? Or are you just sitting around daydreaming about the greatness of His redemption, while neglecting all the things you could be doing for Him? I’m not referring to works which could be regarded as divine and miraculous, but ordinary, simple human things – things which would be evidence to God that you are totally surrendered to Him.”
-       Oswald Chambers

“Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.”
-       Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“A good many are kept out of the service of Christ, deprived of the luxury of working for God, because they are trying to do some great thing. Let us be willing to do little things. And let us remember that nothing is small in which God is the source.”
-       D.L. Moody

Where does serving others line up with your worldview?  Consider this simple statement, from the Word of God:

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

      -  1 Peter 4:10
