A Quote by Jean-Paul Sartre on generosity

We are possessed by the things we possess. When I like an object, I always give it to someone. It isn't generosity - it's only because I want others to be enslaved by objects, not me.

A Quote by Jacques René Chirac on ambition, authority, determination, generosity, imagination, influence, nations, and world

The authority and influence of France on the world scene in the 21st century will not depend solely on its modernity and cohesion, nor even on the continuity and professionalism of its foreign policy. France will be heeded if it has a message to convey. Faced with the temptations of laissez-faire, France must stand out as the nation with the imagination and determination to pursue an ambition that combines cogency with generosity.

Jacques Chirac (1932 -)

A Quote by Horace Rutledge on generosity, people, selfishness, spirit, and world

When you look at the world in a narrow way, how narrow it seems! When you look at it in a mean way, how mean it is! When you look at it selfishly, how selfish it is! But when you look at it in a broad, generous, friendly spirit, what wonderful people you find in it.

Generosity during life is a very different thing from generosity in the hour of death; one proceeds from genuine liberality and benevolence, the other from pride or fear.

A Quote by Grenville Kleiser on appreciation, circumstances, day, deed, faults, forgiveness, friendship, generosity, sacrifice, sympathy, present, and time

There are many fine things which you mean to do some day, under what you think will be more favorable circumstances. But the only time that is surely yours is the present, hence this is the time to speak the word of appreciation and sympathy, to do the generous deed, to forgive the fault of a thoughtless friend, to sacrifice self a little more for others.

Grenville Kleiser (1868 - 1953)
