Giving - Power Quotes Series

Services for Real Estate Pros with R & D Art

  This might be one of the most powerful things that any person can possess. It is GIVING. I see this characteristic practiced the most at the holiday times which leaves me to wonder where it goes for the other 11 months? In my opinion, this is something that you should practice every day. Giving in the right spirit is returned to you 100 fold.

If it is no more than giving of your time or maybe it is giving your neighbor a lift down the road, or maybe it is helping your colleague out with something they do not understand. Giving is the easiest thing to do. And what baffles me is when I hear someone say they do not have time to give.

I hope that you find something here that will help you or inspire you today. If you have a moment, click one or both of the pictures and visit my other blog sites.

I have also added a video that I love that ties in with giving.

Did you know that there are gifts that will multiply your happiness when you give them away?
Steve Brunkhorst

One must be poor to know the luxury of giving.
George Eliot

You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.
Amy Carmichael

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
Desmond Tutu

Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting.
Elizabeth Bibesco

The gift of sight to see beyond the darker clouds of now!
John McLeod, from Dear Father...

Cheerful givers do not count the cost of what they give.Their hearts are set on pleasing and cheering the person to whom the gift is given.
Julian of Norwich

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.
Jim Valvano

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Winston Churchill

We are all gifted. That is our inheritance.
Ethel Waters

These are all great quotes for a very important topic. Giving selflessly is one of the most rewarding things a person can do for both the recipient and the donor. The importance of giving can be seen in the Blog For A Cause group right here on AR!

Danny, I really liked all of the quotes, most were quotes I had not read before.  I too think that giving is as wonderful for the receiver as it is for the giver!

Danny ~ How apt - you are such a giver putting together all these great quotes in your Power Quote series. I know that sometimes I don't always comment, but I do read them and they always give me something to think about.  Thank you!

BTW, I like the picture; are you going to do a different one with one of your dogs for each month? ; )

Patrick, thanks you sir.

Kathy, I know you do. And, that is a great idea. I am just wondering if I can pick up my fat beagle.

Danny - Giving is what it is all about.  This past Christmas, we helped many families from the Angel tree at church.  The kids found it very rewarding until I shared an idea with them. I suggested that we not do Christmas at our house and spend it all on others.  I got that look, and then Markus said, " Jesus would want us to do that."  Sigh, gotta love them. We do a lot of community events and that satisifaction of knowing your making a difference and putting a smile on a face is well worth it.  If your not giving, your not living.  Wonderful post.
