Paying Rent Through Service

I was walking home today, through a building on BYU campus, and I saw this…

bookstore 005And I was like “YES!!!! My new motto!!!”

Who is N. Eldon Tanner?
Nathan Eldon Tanner was a politician from the Canadian province of Alberta.

Where is this thing found?
This can be found at the Tanner Building on BYU campus. This building houses the Marriott School of Management, and at the groundbreaking, Tanner was recognized as “an exemplar of the arts of management … and as an appropriate role model for our students in management.” (see this article)

BYU is a religious school…where does N. Eldon Tanner come in?
Tanner was a business leader for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

So let’s get back to the quote…
“Service is the rent we pay for living in this world of ours.” I love service! For the past 2 years, I have made an effort to make service a big part of my life, and I feel I have succeeded. Service has blessed my life beyond measure. SERIOUSLY. And now, I have a new favorite quote!

Now what?
Now, go out and pay rent!

(if only service could pay the rent for my apartment…)

Thank you, Nathan Eldon Tanner, for the inspiration. And thank you to the incredible sculptor who made this…
