Quote of the Day
Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won't have to hunt for happiness.
William E. Gladstone
A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tries to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really deeply cares.

William Arthur Ward

Michel de Montaigne
At my funeral, if one said, 'Nick was a generous person,' trust me I won't be doing cartwheels in my coffin. Recognition from people is never and never will be a goal. Some people strive for that respect or honor. Living a life to just reach for the position and status is vanity and sin.
