A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on relationships, dying, web, and connectedness

When the body sinks into death, the essence of man is revealed.  Man is a knot, a web, a mesh into which relationships are tied.  Only those relationships matter.  The body is an old crock that nobody will miss.  I have never known a man to think of himself when dying.  Never.

A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on charity, gifts, god, and gratitude

Charity never humiliated him who profited from it, nor ever bound him by the chains of gratitude, since it was not to him but to God that the gift was made.
