A Quote by Albert Einstein on interdependence, work, community, and giving

A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on authenticity, generosity, taking, giving, devotion, doing for others, hiding, and disguise

Is devotion to others a cover for the hungers and the needs of the self, of which one is ashamed? I was always ashamed to take. So I gave. It was not a virtue. It was a disguise.

Anaïs Nin (1903 - 1977)

A Quote by Frank Salvato on love, death, neglect, narcissism, crimes, excuses, integrity, courage, truth, desire, self-importance, and giving

"Love doesn't die a natural death. Love has to be killed, either by neglect or narcissism. Those guilty of these two crimes of the heart always hide behind excuses convenient; too ashamed, lacking in integrity and courage to face the truth. To them, it is always something other than their own actions, desires and self-importance that dictate circumstances. For these people, so blind to truth, true love can never be fully experienced for they have never really given of themselves all that they are."
