Giving in the Right Ways

“Give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day; teach him how to fish, and he’ll eat for a lifetime.” Anon.

“Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.” Mother Teresa.

“Liberality is not giving much but giving wisely.” Benjamin Franklin.

“Charity bestowed upon those who are worthy of it is like good seed sown on a good soil that yields an abundance of fruits. But alms given to those who are yet under the tyrannical yoke of the passions are like seed deposited in a bad soil. The passions of the receiver of the alms choke, as it were, the growth of merits.” Buddha.

“You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give.”  Anon.
