NOT WHAT WE GIVE.
Not what we give, but what we share,
For the gift without the giver is bare;
Who gives himself with his alms feeds three,
Himself, his hungering neighbor, and me.
JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL
If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we could
Cast the gift of a lovely thought into the heart
Of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give.
