A sure way to be joyful is to be generous. Instead of worrying about what you can get, enjoy giving all you can give.
Living generously is living well and living richly. It makes you an active participant not only in your own good fortune, but also in the good fortune of others.
Life can be an incredibly beautiful and wonderful experience. Your generosity magnifies that beauty and wonder many times over.
Generosity is not merely a matter of material offerings. Real and meaningful generosity is giving of yourself.
Give your love, your attention, your compassion, your interest, curiosity and genuine caring. Give your time, your understanding, your peaceful, positive presence and your commitment.
Live each day with a generous heart. Make life's abundance even more abundant by giving the best that you have.
