And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue; They give as in yonder valley the myrtle breathes its fragrance into space. ~ Khalil Gibran ~
Giving is the highest form of potency. In the very act of giving, I experience my strength, my wealth, my power … I experience myself as overflowing, spending, alive, hence as joyous.
~ Erich Fromm ~
If you can’t have what you want, be grateful for what you have. Keep thinking constantly of all the big things you have to be thankful for instead of complaining about the little things that annoy you.
~ Dale Carnegie ~
