Generosity

Quote 2393

Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity - Simone Weil

On Wond'ring...

...Aloud".  Relative latecomer, perfect and tiny; seeping into my senses in my imperfect and tiny Mini arriving at the tennis club during the summer of 1986, just before calm convention came fat, content and unexpectedly into view on the horizon, arrived and stayed. 

Grown ever deeper roots down the years.  Wistful rather than yearning.  Moment(s) in time.  Ultimate line is the ultimate line, and, IIBYW, I'm living it a little more - if not outwardly every day yet as I should - then steadily and a little more nonetheless, for which I'm grateful...

Quote 1113

Whatever we treasure for ourselves separates us from others; our possessions are our limitations - Rabindranath Tagore

Quote 1112

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give - Sir Winston Churchill

Quote 1111

The spirit in which a thing is given determines that in which the debt is acknowledged; it's the intention, not the face-value of the gift, that's weighed - Seneca

Quote 1110

The rich man never really gives anything; he only distributes part of the surplus. It is the person of moderate means who really gives - George Eastman, American businessman

Quote 1109

The measure of a life is not its duration, but its donation - Peter Marshall

Quote 1108

The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose - Hada Bejar

Quote 1107

That's what I consider true generosity. You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing - Simone de Beauvoir
