It is more difficult to give money away
intelligently than to earn it in the first place.
Give all thou canst, high Heaven rejects the lore
Of nicely-calculated less or more.
The fragrance always remains
in the hand that gives the rose.
Noblesse oblige, or, superior advantages
bind you to larger generosity.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Lord loveth a cheerful giver.
He also accepteth from a grouch.
He who gives when asked
has waited too long.
If you think you are too small to be effective,
you have never been in bed with a mosquito.
The true measure of a man is how he treats
someone who can do him absolutely no good.
We make a living by what we get;
but we make a life by what we give.
You have not lived until you have done something
for someone who can never repay you.”
If you can’t feed a hundred people,
then just feed one.
No one has ever
become poor by giving.
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap
but by the seeds that you plant.
-Robert Louis Stevenson
If you are feeling helpless,
-Aung San Suu Kyi
The habit of giving
only enhances the desire to give.
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better. It's not.
Kindness is the
practice of generosity.
