Thoughts on Giving

Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
Kahlil Gibran


Do give books - religious or otherwise - for Christmas. They're never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal.
Lenore Hershey


You must give some time to your fellow men. Even if it's a little thing, do something for others - something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it.
Albert Schweitzer

Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I love giving books. They are my all-time favorite gift to give and receive. Right now my favorite to gift is I'm Proud of You: My Friendship with Fred Rogers by Tim Madigan.
