GIVE WITH A CHEERFUL HEART - BE GENEROUS WITH YOUR BLESSINGS
Today, give yourself permission to be outrageously kind, irrationally warm, improbably generous. I promise it will be a blast.
Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
Sir Winston Churchill
We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.
One of the sanest, surest, and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others.
The Platinum Rule: Treat others in the way they like to be treated.
Give yourself entirely to those around you. Be generous with your blessings. A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.
Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
Goodness is about character - integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.
Norman Vincent Peale
When you become detached mentally from yourself and concentrate on helping other people with their difficulties, you will be able to cope with your own more effectively. Somehow, the act of self-giving is a personal power-releasing factor.
We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn't always know this and am happy I lived long enough to find out.
Cultivating the habit of good deeds will not only affect those around us, it will improve our own emotional well being.
When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.
Life is given to us, we earn it by giving it.
Teach love, generosity, good manners and some of that will drift from the classroom to the home and who knows, the children will be educating the parents.
The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.
Etienne de Grellet
I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
Simone de Beauvoir
That's what I consider true generosity: You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing.
The happy heart gives away the best. To know how to receive is also a most important gift, which cultivates generosity in others and keeps strong the cycle of life.
Generosity is not giving me that which I need more than you do, but it is giving me that which you need more than I do.
Frank A. Clark
Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.
The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.
You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.
If one wishes to know love, one must live love, in action.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The arms of love encompass you with your present, your past, your future, the arms of love gather you together.
Karen Benz Scarvie
Tell me a fact and I’ll learn. Tell me a truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever.
