quotations about giving

It is more blessed to give than to receive.

HENRY WARD BEECHER, Proverbs from Plymouth Pulpit

The good receiv'd, the giver is forgot.

WILLIAM CONGREVE, epistle to Lord Halifax

He that distributeth not
That which he hath received--
His food, his drink, his sustenance--
Unto devotee, brahman, beggar, wayfarer--
Such a low man as he, they say, is like
Unto a lack of rain.

GAUTAMA BUDDHA, Iti-Vuttaka

The decay of giving is today matched by a hardness towards receiving.

Not what we give, but what we share,
For the gift without the giver is bare.
