Giving quotes
Giving
Prayer carries us half way to God, fasting brings us to the door of His palace, and alms-giving procures us admission.

- Koran, The
In historic events, the so-called great men are labels giving names to events, and like labels they have but the smallest connection with the event itself. Every act of theirs, which appears to them an act of their own will, is in an historical sense involuntary and is related to the whole course of history and predestined from eternity.

- Tolstoy, Count Leo
we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

- Macewan, Norman
A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives you roses.

- Proverb
Fragrance clings to the hand that gives the rose.

Only to the extent that someone is living out this self transcendence of human existence, is he truly human or does he become his true self. He becomes so, not by concerning himself with his self's actualization, but by forgetting himself and giving himself, overlooking himself and focusing outward.

- Frankl, Viktor E.
Get not your friends by bare compliments, but by giving them sensible tokens of your love.

- Socrates
I have come to believe that giving and receiving are really the same. Giving and receiving - not giving and taking.

- Joyce Grenfell
Style is knowing who you are, what to say, and not giving a damn.

- Vidal, Gore
He who gives while he lives, get to know where it goes.

- Ross, Percy
. . . Every winter, When the great sun has turned his face away, The earth goes down into the vale of grief, And fasts, and weeps, and shrouds herself in sables, Leaving her wedding garments to decay; Then leaps in spring to his returning kisses.
Saint's Tragedy, Act iii. Scene i.
Out of the morning land, Over the snow-drifts, Beautiful Freya came, Tripping to Scoring. White were the moorlands, And frozen before her; Green were the moorlands, And blooming behind her. Out of her gold locks Shaking the spring flowers, Out of her garments Shaking the south wind, Around in the birches Awaking the throstles, Love and love-giving, Came she to Scoring. . . . . .

- The Longbeard's Saga. 1852.
It is like the seed put in the soil -- the more one sows, the greater the harvest.

- Marden, Orison Swett
It is comforting when one has a sorrow to lie in the warmth of one's bed and there, abandoning all effort and all resistance, to bury even one's head under the cover, giving one's self up to it completely, moaning like branches in the autumn wind. But there is still a better bed, full of divine odors. It is our sweet, our profound, our impenetrable friendship.

- Proust, Marcel
He who obtains has little. He who scatters has much.

- Lao-Tzu
Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of carelessness, incapacity, or neglect.

Each person has inside a basic decency and goodness. If he listens to it and acts on it, he is giving a great deal of what it is the world needs most. It is not complicated but it takes courage. It takes courage for a person to listen to his own goodness and act on it.

- Casals, Pablo
We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving

- Meltzer, Bernard
Those who give hoping to be rewarded with honor are not giving, they are bargaining.

- Philo
And be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. [Ephesians 4:32]

- Bible
It is rare indeed that people give. Most people guard and keep; they suppose that it is they themselves and what they identify with themselves that they are guarding and keeping, whereas what they are actually guarding and keeping is their system of reality and what they assume themselves to be.

- Baldwin, James
