A Generous Spirit

"That's what I consider true generosity
You give your all and yet 
you always feel it costs you nothing."
- Simone de Beauvoir

There are people you meet and know in your life who give and give and give, not thinking for a minute about the getting.

Recently it has occurred to me again how beautiful a generous spirit can be. I recently encountered a person of such a giving nature that my heart was blessed to overflowing...

"Conquer the angry one by not getting angry; conquer the wicked by goodness; conquer the stingy by generosity, and the liar by speaking the truth."
- Buddha

Just a thought...


  1. great quotes Ma, esp. like Buddha!

    1. It is a great truth! So obvious but not so easy. :)
