Day 253 – Lakeside

September 23, 2012

 

“You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. Is not dread of thirst when your well is full, the thirst that is unquenchable? There are whose who give little of the much which they have – and they give it for recognition and their hidden desire makes their gifts unwholesome. And there are those who have little and give it all. These are the believers in life and the bounty of life, and their coffer is never empty. […] They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish.” (Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet, 1923.)
