The Great News Letter

Today is February 21st, and welcome to The Daily Quote – a podcast designed to kickstart your day in a positive way. I’m your host, Andrew McGivern, and I’m happy you are here with me today.

Now, February 21st is quite the special day for our friends who love their language with a bit of flair and history. That’s right, it’s International Mother Language Day. This day is all about celebrating the diversity and richness of languages around the world. It’s like a linguistic buffet, where every dish is a unique dialect or accent. So, whether you’re fluent in French, proficient in Punjabi, or just mastering the art of Morse code, today is your day to shine.

Speaking of languages and the art of communication, let’s dive into our quote of the day. It comes from the legendary British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, who said,

“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

Churchill, a man who was no stranger to the power of words, encapsulates a profound truth in this simple statement.

Now, you might be wondering, “Andrew, what does this quote have to do with International Mother Language Day?” Well, let me connect the dots for you. Language, at its core, is our primary vehicle for giving. We use it to share knowledge, express love, offer support, and bridge cultures. It’s through our words and actions that we contribute to the world around us, crafting a life defined not by our possessions, but by our contributions.

Churchill’s quote reminds us that while earning a living is necessary, the essence of life is not found in accumulation but in contribution. It’s a nudge to look beyond our immediate needs and consider how we can enrich the lives of others. Whether it’s by teaching someone a word in your mother tongue, volunteering for a cause close to your heart, or simply offering a kind word to a stranger, every act of giving shapes a more meaningful life.

So, on this International Mother Language Day, let’s celebrate not just the languages we speak, but also the acts of kindness and generosity that transcend linguistic barriers. Let’s make our lives richer, not by what we get, but by what we give.

Thank you for joining me today on The Daily Quote. Remember, every day is a chance to make a life by what we give, so let’s make today count. I’ll see you tomorrow for another dose of inspiration. Have a fantastic day ahead!
