Giving Back Quotations
Saint Francis of Assisi
As great scientists have said and as all children know, it is above all by the imagination that we achieve perception, and compassion, and hope.
Ursula K. Le Guin
The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.
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.
Gracious acceptance is an art—an art which most never bother to cultivate. We think that we have to learn how to give, but we forget about accepting things, which can be much harder than giving... Accepting another person's gift is allowing him to express his feelings for you.
Alexander McCall Smith
Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
Theodor Seuss Geisel
Sir David Tang
Sir Winston Churchill
If you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you'll end up not doing anything for anybody.
I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe lead you.
