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.
…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.
The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.
Sir David Tang
If you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you'll end up not doing anything for anybody.
Sir Winston Churchill
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
Giving is a universal opportunity. Regardless of your age, profession, religion, income bracket, and background, you have the capacity to create change.
