Kahlil Gibran from The Prophet.

Smaller Font Larger Font RSS 2.0



Then said a rich man: "Speak to us of giving." And he answered:

"You give but little when you give of your possessions.

It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.

There are those who give with joy, and that joy is their reward.

And there are those who give with pain, and that pain is their baptism.

And there are those who have little and give it all.

There are believers in life and the bounty of life,

And their coffers are never empty;

They give that they may live, for to withhold is to perish.

It is well to give when asked, but it is better to give unasked, through UNDERSTANDING.

And to the open-handed the search for one who shall receive is joy greater than giving.

Therefore, give now, that the season of giving may be yours and not your inheritors."
