The power to do good


Do right, and God’s recompense to you will be the power of doing more right. Give, and God’s reward to you will be the spirit of giving more: a blessed spirit, for it is the Spirit of God Himself, whose Life is the blessedness of giving. Love, and God will pay you with the capacity of more love; for love is Heaven: love is God within you.

–F. W. Robertson
(1816 – 1853)

Giving is life-giving


I suppose all the ills
of human personality
can be traced back
to one thing—
not understanding
the meaning of the phrase:
“It is more blessed to give
than to receive.”

–Dr. Alfred W. Adler
Jewish psychiatrist
