A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on giving, life, love, and needs

Give and Take....

For to the bee a flower is a fountain if life
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love
And to both, bee and flower,
the giving and the receiving is a need and an ecstasy.

Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931)

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on giving, receiving, debt, generosity, gifts, gratitude, and abundance

And you receivers - and you are all receivers - assume no weight of gratitude, lest you lay a yoke upon yourself and upon him who gives.
Rather rise together with the giver on his gifts as on wings;
For to be overmindful of your debt, is to doubt his generosity who has the free hearted earth for mother, and God for father.

A Quote by Kahlil Gibran on giving, generosity, and charity

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.

A Quote by June Brown Harris on gifts, giving, good, laughter, and love

GIVING Giving isn't giving Unless the gift is tied With ribbon-bows of gladness; What good the gift inside (Though it be made of silver) What good the stars above If hearts know naught of laughter, If hearts are void of love?

Mathematics is the art of giving the same name to different things. [As opposed to the quotation: Poetry is the art of giving different names to the same thing].

A Quote by Joseph Campbell on giving, life, miracles, and wonder

Essentially, mythologies are enormous poems that are renditions of insights, giving some sense of the marvel, the miracle and wonder of life.

A Quote by Joseph B. Wirthlin on failure, giving, good, hope, perseverance, suffering, and trying

Perseverance is a positive, active characteristic. It is not idly, passively waiting and hoping for some good thing to happen. It gives us hope by helping us realize that the righteous suffer no failure except in giving up and no longer trying. We must never give up, regardless of temptations, frustrations, disappointments, or discouragements.

Joseph B. Wirthlin (1924 -)
