Just a few notables talking about giving. Maybe some inspiration so that we will increase our generosity.
Barbara Bush: Giving frees us from the familiar territory of our own needs by opening our mind to the unexplained worlds occupied by the needs of others.
Dale Evans: Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.
Horace Mann: 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.
Jean-Paul Sartre: The poor don’t know that their function in life is to exercise our generosity.
John D. Rockefeller Jr.: Think of giving not as a duty but as a privilege.
Thornton Wilder: Money is like manure; it’s not worth a thing unless it’s spread around encouraging young things to grow. from “The Matchmaker”
Walt Whitman: The habit of giving only enhances the desire to give.
Winston Churchill: You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give.
