Giving QuotesHere's a wonderful collection of giving quotes that'll speak of the essence of giving it away and yet receiving a lot in return.
Many people cling to things. Yet there's many who lovingly share what they have.
Especially for women, there's many occasions where you have to give it away. To your kids, your husband, your family, your work and so on. Somehow as a woman, you possess an innate inability to see that the more you give away, the more you receive in return. What you get could be an immense sense of joy, purpose, satisfaction and more.
As for men, you too have many areas to give and contribute, to your work, to your family, to society and to the woman you love!
What we give away returns manifold to us in ways unimaginable. What we cling on to for dear life, slips away right before our desperate eyes.
So let's rejoice in the art of giving and soak in the good feeling that comes from the simple, beautiful act of giving it away.
