This is what I've found so far:

We must be silent before we can listen.
We must listen before we can learn.
We must learn before we can prepare.
We must prepare before we can serve.
We must serve before we can lead.

Thanks Redleg

I'll be using the quote for the next lot of lessons I have to give.

This will come much too late for your lessons, but the quote you asked about sounds a lot like Mark 10:44. In the Authorized Version that goes 'And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all'. Another translation perhaps would give you something closer.
