generosity

A Quote by John Ernst Steinbeck on story, world, humans, caught, life, lives, thoughts, hungers, ambitions, avarice, cruelty, kindness, generosity, good, evil, well, and ill

"I believe that there is only one story in the world...Humans are caught--in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too--in a net of good and evil...A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean question: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well--or ill?"

John Steinbeck (1902 - 1968)

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on giving, natural, love, evolution, last stage, final evolution, flowers, myrtle, potlatch, and generosity

There are those who give little of the much which they have - and they give it for recognition and their hidden desire makes their gifts unwholesome.

And there are those who have little and give it all.
These are the believers in life and the bounty of life, and their coffer is never empty.
There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.
And there are those who give with pain, and that pain is their baptism.
And there are those who give and know not pain in giving, nor do they seek joy, nor give with mindfulness of virtue;
They give as in yonder valley the myrtle breathes its fragrance into space.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

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.
