Giving Back Quotations
Have faith in yourself. But have faith in your friends and neighbors, too. I know life is competitive- but it isn't a jungle. Like begets like. Faith inspires faith. People give back substantially what we give them.
There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
Giving is a universal opportunity. Regardless of your age, profession, religion, income bracket, and background, you have the capacity to create change.
Sir David Tang
Sir Winston Churchill
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
Robert J. Collier
…A great gift has been made to each and every one of us—the privilege of living in the world for a short span of years and the opportunity of doing our part to help the less fortunate; to improve civilization; to advance knowledge, both the scientific knowledge of men and the wisdom which is from above. The gift of human life and the opportunity which is ours to serve others…should be regarded as a sacred trust.
You are here for a purpose. There is no duplicate of you in the whole wide world. There never has been, there never will be. You were brought here now to fill a certain need. Take time to think that over.
Mazhar El Shorbagi
There's no substitute for rolling up your sleeves and working with the people who can make a difference. They get the benefit of your participation and you gain a direct understanding of the real problems and potential solutions, which makes you a more informed giver.
Sir Winston Churchill

I've been doing this for a long time now, so I thought I'd share it! We have an Aldi Grocery Store where I live. For those of you not familiar with Aldi, you must put a quarter into a slot in order to get a cart unlocked from all the other carts. You get your quarter back when you re-hook it to the other carts....
