A Variety of quotes on the subject of Giving.
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ~ Brene Brown
When ego is lost, limit is lost. You become infinite, kind, beautiful. ~ Yogi Bhajan

"Seek not your happiness in someone else, seek only to share your happiness with someone else." ~ Chris W Metz
“Lasting happiness does not come from the possession of a gift. Happiness comes from the memory of the kindness that inspired it.” ~ Chris W Metz
“Gratitude comes from love, joy and happiness, these are not physical things, they represent ideas or thoughts, and unlike a material item which is decreased by giving it away, thoughts and ideas are increased by extension or sharing. The person receiving the idea experiences more by receiving it and the idea itself is reinforced within the giver thereby increasing it as we give it away. Happiness and love like many things can be shared and given away and will forever increase upon itself.” ~ Chris W Metz, The Road Out Of The Abyss
“We fail to comprehend the effect we have on other people by being happy. Being in the presence of happy people our own happiness tends to increase. The opposite is true for being around unhappy, ungrateful people, as they tend to bring us down. If we are truly happy and do not let other people effect our decision for happiness, then we become the positive force. This will start to reverse the mood and outlook of those that are in a negative state.” ~ Chris W Metz, The Road Out Of The Abyss
"You can never be truly happy when you judge others. To judge others is to live with constant pain and no one suffers the pain of judgment other than yourself." ~ Chris W Metz
“It is our judgment of things that hides their beauty. Every moment of every day is beautiful, it is only our judgment that prevents us from seeing this is so.” ~ Chris W Metz
Searching all directions with one’s awareness, one finds no one dearer than oneself. In the same way, others are fiercely dear to themselves. So one should not hurt others if one loves oneself. ~ Buddha
It's hard to wait around for something that may never happen, but it's even harder to give up, when you know it's everything you ever wanted!! ~ Unknown
“She lives her life like a flame; a dance of purposeful chaos.… Her enchanting light can guide you and quell your fears… She’s hot; warming those who respect her and burning those who don’t... She is a flame with an unforgettable glow… A weak man will try to dim her luminance... but her soul mate will take pleasure in fanning the blaze.” ~ Steve Maraboli
