Quote of the Day
Submitting to censorship is to enter the seductive world of 'The Giver': the world where there are no bad words and no bad deeds. But it is also the world where choice has been taken away and reality distorted. And that is the most dangerous world of all.
He who loves with purity considers not the gift of the lover, but the love of the giver.
Thomas a Kempis
You hear a lot about God these days: God, the beneficent; God, the all-great; God, the Almighty; God, the most powerful; God, the giver of life; God, the creator of death. I mean, we're hearing about God all the time, so we better learn how to deal with it. But if we know anything about God, God is arbitrary.
I am a good, strong word giver; I am a jealous guard of my own secrets. Freedom is the rule; I am hungry for one good thing I can do.

Flattery corrupts both the receiver and the giver.
I love to give. I've been a giver all my life.
If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my god.
Problems or successes, they all are the results of our own actions. Karma. The philosophy of action is that no one else is the giver of peace or happiness. One's own karma, one's own actions are responsible to come to bring either happiness or success or whatever.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Love the giver more than the gift.
When I wrote 'The Giver,' it contained no so-called 'bad words.' It was set, after all, in a mythical, futuristic, and Utopian society. Not only was there no poverty, divorce, racism, sexism, pollution, or violence in the world of 'The Giver'; there was also careful attention paid to language: to its fluency, precision, and power.
For the will and not the gift makes the giver.
Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. They bless the one who receives them, and they bless you, the giver.
Barbara de Angelis
Everyone finds their own version of Charles Dickens. The child-victim, the irrepressibly ambitious young man, the reporter, the demonic worker, the tireless walker. The radical, the protector of orphans, helper of the needy, man of good works, the republican. The hater and the lover of America. The giver of parties, the magician, the traveler.
I think when you're very dedicated to something and you're engaged fully, you become a giver.
My concept of an advice giver had been a therapist or a know-it-all, and then I realized nobody listens to the know-it-alls. You turn to the people you know, the friend who has been in the thick of it or messed up - and I'm that person for sure.
People in the know say 'The Giver' was the first young adult dystopian novel.
This is the hardest of all: to close the open hand out of love, and keep modest as a giver.
I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.
When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice. Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Everybody knows the Lord loveth a cheerful giver.
George Washington Cable
The Giver of Existence is Eternally Existent; there is no harm, therefore, in the passing of beings, for the things that are loved continue to exist through the continuance of the One Who gave them existence, the Necessary Existent.
Every day is a gift from God. Learn to focus on the Giver and enjoy the gift!
The new leader is a facilitator, not an order giver.
Yeah, I'm a giver. I've learned to be selective of the people in my world, because if I love someone, I will give them my blood, whatever they need. In doing so, one can end up with little left for themselves.
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
