Colleen Hoover
“Selflessness. It should be the basis of every relationship. If a person truly cares about you, they'll get more pleasure from the way they make you feel, rather than the way you make them feel.”
Colleen Hoover, Confess

Chelsea Handler
“My mother told me that life isn't always about pleasing yourself and that sometimes you have to do things for the sole benefit of another human being. I completely agreed with her, but reminded her that that was what blow jobs were for.”

Kahlil Gibran
“And now you ask in your heart, ‘How shall we distinguish that which is good in pleasure from that which is not good?’
Go to your fields and your gardens, and you shall learn that it is the pleasure of the bee to gather honey of the flower,
But it is also the pleasure of the flower to yield its honey to the bee.
For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life,
And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love,
And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.

People of Orphalese, be in your pleasures like the flowers and the bees.”
Khalil Gibran, The Prophet

Amit Ray
“If you want to ask one question, ask yourself, what are you giving to the universe and only that will be returned.”

Dragos Bratasanu

You cannot be depressed when you show up everyday to bring hope to people in despair.

You cannot feel lack when you give everyday to the poor.

You cannot feel alone when you truly seek to meet people's needs.

You cannot feel unworthy when you show others how precious they are.

You cannot feel ugly when you truly see how beautiful all people are.

You cannot feel you don't matter when you see that everyone truly matters.

You cannot feel unloved when you love others. Love is something you do.

What you don't give, you lose. If you don't have it, give it away to somebody today. Protect and keep the things you value by giving them.”
Dragos Bratasanu

“We often live as if our happiness depended on having. But I don't know anyone who is really happy because of what he or she has. True joy, happiness, and inner peace come from the giving of ourselves to others. A happy life is a life for others. That truth, however, is usually discovered when we are confronted with our brokenness.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, Life of the Beloved: Spiritual Living in a Secular World

“The more you share unconditionally what others most need, the more you will receive what you most want.”
Dragos Bratasanu, Ph.D., Sleepers: A Little Book on How to Find Hope, Meaning and the Courage to Fall in Love with Your Dreams

“Sometimes you welcome people only for them to show you how unwelcoming you are. Sometimes you generously help people only for them to show you how extravagant and evil you are. Sometimes you teach people only for them to show you how ignorant you are. Sometimes you open your doors to people only for them to show you how dirty your room is. Sometimes you make way for people only for them to block your ways. Sometimes you draw people closer to you only for them to teach you the real meaning of betrayal and loneliness. Sometimes you smile to people only for them to show you the color of your teeth. Sometimes you play with people only for them to show you how uncouth you are. In life, sometimes, your very best intentions shall be seen as woefully bad. Sometimes in life, your good deeds and acts would see another meaning, but no matter how people perceive, accept and treat you or your intentions, acts and deeds, know yourself, and dare not to be changed by circumstances so easily. Regardless of how hurtful circumstances might be, dare to guard your heart and your tongue, so you may not speak what you should never say that would make you miss your reward before the Sovereign Lord. Keep doing what you have to do, as you have to do as a living sacrifice to the Sovereign God for from Him comes your true reward!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

“Just like you can’t reap a harvest without planting seeds, so you can’t get without giving.”
Debasish Mridha

“Give, but know how and what to give! Plant your seeds; nurture them well for the best fruits; from the fruits you can feed thousands, and you can also get seeds from the fruits for further sowing. If, however, you keep giving your seeds in the name of benevolence, there shall come a time when you shall neither have a fruit to feed just a person nor a seed for replanting and harvesting!”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
