Hoe luidt het motto van Rotary “Service Above Self” letterlijk?

Fundamentally, Rotary is a philosophy of life

That undertakes to reconcile the ever present conflict between the desire to profit for one’s self and consequent impulse to serve others.

This philosophy is the philosophy of service – “Service Above Self”.

Because they who serve must act,      

Rotary is not merely a state of mind, nor Rotary philosophy merely subjective, but must translate itself into objective activity:

And the individual Rotarian and the Rotary Club must put the theory of service into practice.
