  1. Sometimes it feels like we’re becoming more inhuman, more merciless by creating imbalances from our selfish and greedy ways.

    But I’m fascinated by the givers, people who see themselves as part of a whole with no separation and no isolation from the human condition.

    1. Thanks Tim. I couldn’t agree more. We do seem to be more merciless in the way we conduct ourselves, that much seems true, but can we class it has inhuman?

      It’s a human failing I feel, but very much part of the human scenario. The truth is what you’re describing is becoming more of the norm in today’s society. It’s become reality, it’s how we behave.

      There seems to be little giving, it’s more about the taking.

  2. I totally agree with this quote. I admire someone more for what they have done for other people, than what they have succeeded in doing for their own benefit.

    People don’t have to do much to make a difference in someone’s life; every small act of kindness makes a difference.

    1. Thanks Maria. I agree with you. I would also add that it’s okay to benefit for ourselves, as long as we also give back in the process.

      It doesn’t have to be a financial gain. It could be helping out people who are less fortunate than ourselves. Anywhere we can make a difference.

  3. I think this quote Is spot on. The best way to give back, is to help someone else achieve their goals.

    Anybody can become successful and let their money keep piling up. It takes a greater person to share their knowledge, so someone else can do the same.
