We need to build an economy in which the important things are paid for in self-sustaining ways rather than as charities to be funded out of the goodness of our hearts - Tim Reilly

Quote 338

We need somehow to create a new image of the economy, one which somehow takes into account all the things that are done for nothing, from giving birth to mourning, from giving presents to paying attention to people in trouble. Most of the real value we create in the world is given without hope of recompense. Unfortunately, the economics we learn about totally represses the world of gifts, which exists, like the dark matter of modern physics, invisible but omnipresent - Oxford Muse

Quote 337

We are not to throw away those things which can benefit our neighbor. Goods are called good because they can be used for good: they are instruments for good, in the hands of those who use them properly. -- Clement of Alexandria

Quote 336

Philanthropy is riddled with paradoxes and unintended consequences; charity may turn recipients into objects of charity; giving is supposed to help others, but often people engage in philanthropy because they want to feel good, not because they want to do good - George Soros

Quote 335

It's only the giving that makes you what you are - Jethro Tull
