Hello Cheryl,

1."Giving gives immense satisfaction."

2."Giving is getting. Show me who hasn't got happiness in giving and i will tell you he is not giving at all. He is either forced or he is returning what is not his."

Sugy.


p.s: Please let me know if you would like to use these quotes. I will let you know my full name.

One that I grew up knowing from my family but I'm not sure where it may have originated.

"We plant a tree today, for shade for tomorrow."

And one that I have always loved is:
"You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give."
