begging

A Quote by Sol Luckman on luke soloman, beginners luke, begging, poverty, nonchalance, money, earning, abundance, co-creation, manifestation, homeless, career, possibility, trenchant, funny, humor, comedy, and social satire

I adopted a begging posture that suggested genteel poverty combined with a certain affable nonchalance. People found this irresistible. They lavished money on me. Within days I exceeded ten dollars an hour. I began to save money and even, following Blue’s lead, tithed to the less fortunate. I became less pessimistic, thought less about how cruel the streets can be. I actually considered begging a legitimate career possibility.

A Quote by Sol Luckman on luke soloman, begging, money, survival, human, humanity, human nature, generosity, crisis, good samaritan, selfish, greedy, philanthropy, philanthropist, and goodwill

It takes money to make money, even begging. Humans are herd animals. If a stranger’s bleeding to death beside the road, most people won’t stop to offer a Band-Aid. But get the ball rolling with a couple Good Samaritans, and before you know it you’ve got more eager philanthropists than you know what to do with.

Begging is much more difficult than it looks. Contrary to popular belief, it’s a high art form that takes years of dedicated practice to master.
