Quote of the Day
I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.
A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
This is the hardest of all: to close the open hand out of love, and keep modest as a giver.
If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my god.
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.
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

Thomas a Kempis
Everybody knows the Lord loveth a cheerful giver.
George Washington Cable
I'm honestly not a great gift giver. I could give better - my girlfriends have always complained about that.

The new leader is a facilitator, not an order giver.
For the will and not the gift makes the giver.
Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
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.
