Give and forget. Receive and remember.

You can give without loving, but you can't love without giving.

We have been miseducated about gift giving. We believe gifts must always bear a price tag or be given for a particular reason. The real joy in giving comes when we give what we have spontaneously...

One must be poor to know the luxury of giving.

Generosity lies less in giving much than in giving at the right moment.

The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.

One can give nothing whatever without giving oneself--that is to say, risking oneself. If one cannot risk oneself, then one is simply incapable of giving.

It is expressly at those times when we feel needy that we will benefit the most from giving.

In the long run, we get no more than we have been willing to risk giving.

People who live well are experts at giving. They give their money; they give their time. They share their wisdom and their skills. They quickly say yes when asked to help.

To give is to love and to love is to live. It's a formula for a successful life.

Help is giving part of yourself to somebody who comes to accept it willingly and needs it badly.

It is better to give than to lend, and it costs about the same.

He that gives should never remember, he that receives should never forget.

When you give of yourself, you receive more than you give.

He who gives to me teaches me to give.

To give without any reward, or any notice, has a special quality of its own.

For what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.

The greatest gift that you can give yourself is a little bit of your own attention.

Not what we gain, but what we give measures the worth of the life we live.

You get more than you give when you give more than you get.
