We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. — Rebecca Currington

Giving Gifts Quotes By Earl Nightingale

On Christmas morning, our joy or our happiness can be at a very high level, not because of our anticipation of what we might receive but, rather, in anticipation of watching our loved ones open our gifts to them. In fact, if we're not careful, we can fail to register sufficient excitement and joy upon opening the gifts we receive from others. We must remember that they are happiest at that time and to give them top billing, to stretch their happiness to its full length. — Earl Nightingale

Giving Gifts Quotes By David Deida

The superior man is not seeking fulfillment through work and woman, because he is already full. For him, work and intimacy are opportunities to give his gifts, and to be vanished in the bliss of giving. — David Deida

Giving Gifts Quotes By Seamus Heaney

And a young prince must be prudent like that,
giving freely while his father lives
so that afterwards, in age when fighting starts
steadfast companions will stand by him
and hold the line. — Seamus Heaney

Giving Gifts Quotes By Kemi Sogunle

Giving someone gifts cannot equate to spending quality time with them. Never replace time with things. Time is precious and once lost cannot be regained. Make every moment count...you never know when your time will be up. — Kemi Sogunle

Giving Gifts Quotes By Nancy Gibbs; Michael Duffy

The phone would ring, and they would put their son on speakerphone. Ever sensitive to charges of puppeteering, Mrs. Bush let it known that certain restrictions were observed. "The rules are: no repeating what he tells you and no giving unsolicited advice and no passing on things that people ask you to give the President ... gifts or advice or ideas or wanting job," his mother recalled. "We just have made that deal because we were there. We know what it's like — Nancy Gibbs; Michael Duffy

Giving Gifts Quotes By Pierre Corneille

The manner of giving is worth more than the gift. — Pierre Corneille

Giving Gifts Quotes By Sarah Fine

He thought I was strong, but he was willing to lay down his life to protect me. He thought I was beautiful, but he treated me as a precious gift instead of something to take for his own pleasure. He thought I was worth something, and he was worth everything to me. This man had endured lifetimes of suffering, but he could still love, and give, and dream of his future. He was a leader who would sacrifice himself for the weak, who used all his gifts - his intelligence, his cunning, his strength - to protect others. It was a privilege to love him, even to have a shot at giving him the things he needed. — Sarah Fine

Giving Gifts Quotes By Matthew Quick

Why are you giving this to me?""well, for a lot of reasons. most of which i can't really explain properly. that's why people give presents, right? because they don't know how to express themselves in words, so you give gifts to symbolically explain your feelings. — Matthew Quick

Giving Gifts Quotes By Melody Beattie

Are you balanced? Do you share your time, your energy, your life, as much with yourself as you do with those around you? ... Know your limits. You are one of the most important people you need to look after and love. Balance your time, your energy, your life with those around you. You'll be able to give more freely and joyfully as a result, and you'll be more open to the gifts of the universe. It's not wrong to give to others. But it's okay to say yes to ourselves, too. — Melody Beattie

Giving Gifts Quotes By Terry Tempest Williams

The nature of living and loving is the act of reciprocity. As women, we are told that to be the guest is to receive. We are told that to be the host is to give. But what if it is the reverse? What if it is the guest who gives to the host and it is the host who receives from the guest each time she sets her table to welcome and feed those she loves? To be the guest and the host simultaneously is to imagine a mutual exchange of gifts predicated on respect and joy. If we could adopt this truth, perhaps we as women would be less likely to become martyrs. — Terry Tempest Williams

Giving Gifts Quotes By Richard Dawkins

In giving rise to man, the evolutionary process has, apparently for the first and only time in the history of the Cosmos, become conscious of itself.
So, the Devil's Chaplain might conclude, Stand tall, Bipedal Ape. The shark may outswim you, the cheetah outrun you, the swift outfly you, the capuchin outclimb you, the elephant outpower you, the redwood outlast you. But you have the biggest gifts of all: the gift of understanding the ruthlessly cruel process that gave us all existence; the gift of revulsion against its implications; the gift of foresight - something utterly foreign to the blundering short-term ways of natural selection - and the gift of internalizing the very cosmos. — Richard Dawkins

Giving Gifts Quotes By Deepak Chopra

In fact, the most powerful forms of giving are non-material. The gifts of caring, attention, affection, appreciation, and love are some of the most precious gifts you can give, and they don't cost you anything. When — Deepak Chopra

Giving Gifts Quotes By Thomas S. Monson

In our day the spirit of giving gifts plays a large role in commemorating the Christmas season. I wonder if we might profit by asking ourselves, What gifts would the Lord have me give to Him or to others at this precious season of the year? — Thomas S. Monson

Giving Gifts Quotes By Pope Benedict XVI

Jesus Christ does not teach us a spirituality 'of closed eyes,' but one of 'alertness,' one which entails an absolute duty to take notice of the needs of others and of situations involving those whom the Gospel tells us are our neighbors ... The gaze of Jesus, what 'his eyes' teach us, leads to human closeness, solidarity, giving time, sharing our gifts and even our material goods. — Pope Benedict XVI

Giving Gifts Quotes By Patti Digh

Generosity has little to do with giving gifts, and everything to do with giving space to others to be who they are. — Patti Digh

Giving Gifts Quotes By Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Presents are made for the pleasure of who gives them, not the merits of who receives them. — Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Giving Gifts Quotes By Pearl S. Buck

For Nature is not unjust. She does not steal into the womb and like an evil fairy give her good gifts secretly to men and deny them to women. Men and women are born free and equal in ability and brain. The injustice begins after birth. — Pearl S. Buck

Giving Gifts Quotes By Jean De La Bruyere

Liberality consists less in giving a great deal than in gifts well-timed. — Jean De La Bruyere

Giving Gifts Quotes By Oswald Chambers

One of the greatest hindrances in coming to Jesus is the excuse of temperament. We make our temperament and our natural affinities barriers to coming to Jesus. The first thing we realize when we come to Jesus is that He pays no attention whatever to our natural affinities. We have the notion that we can consecrate our gifts to God. You cannot consecrate what is not yours; there is only one thing you can consecrate to God, and that is your right to yourself (Romans 12:1). If you will give God your right to yourself, He will make a holy experiment out of you. God's experiments always succeed — Oswald Chambers

Giving Gifts Quotes By Henry Edward Manning

Praise consists in the love of God, in wonder at the goodness of God, in recognition of the gifts of God, in seeing God in all things He gives us, ay, and even in the things that He refuses to us; so as to see our whole life in the light of God; and seeing this, to bless Him, adore Him, and glorify Him. — Henry Edward Manning

Giving Gifts Quotes By Lester Sumrall

I know success or failure in my life or ministry does not depend on my own skill or even on external circumstances, it depends only on my faithfulness. God will give me the gifts necessary to do whatever He calls me to do, and He will not be hindered in His work by circumstances. — Lester Sumrall

Giving Gifts Quotes By Helen Fielding

Ugh. Would that Christmas could just be, without presents. It is just so stupid, everyone exhausting themselves, miserably haemorrhaging money on pointless items nobody wants: no longer tokens of love but angst-ridden solutions to problems. [...] What is the point of entire nation rushing round for six weeks in a bad mood preparing for utterly pointless Taste-of-Others exam which entire nation then fails and gets stuck with hideous unwanted merchandise as fallout? If gifts and cards were completely eradicated, then Christmas as pagan-style twinkly festival to distract from lengthy winter gloom would be lovely. But if government, religious bodies, parents, tradition, etc. insist on Christmas Gift Tax to ruin everything why not make it that everyone must go out and spend £500 on themselves then distribute the items among their relatives and friends to wrap up and give to them instead of this psychic-failure torment? — Helen Fielding

Giving Gifts Quotes By Michael Beckwith

Success with a small s is based on accumulation and materialism. Success with a large S is based on the unfoldment of our soul and the generosity of Spirit made manifest by the giving of our gifts. — Michael Beckwith

Giving Gifts Quotes By Ann Voskamp

Do I really smother my own joy because I believe that anger achieves more than love? That Satan's way is more powerful, more practical, more fulfilling in my daily life than Jesus' way? WHy else get angry? Isn't it because I think complaining, exasperation, resentment will pound me up into the full life I really want? When I choose-and it is a choice-to crush joy with bitterness, am I not purposefully choosing to take the way of the Prince of Darkness? Choosing the angry way of Lucifer because I think it is more effective-more expedient-than giving thanks? — Ann Voskamp

Giving Gifts Quotes By Seth Godin

I've found that giving gifts is transformative. It makes me better. It clarifies my thinking and allows me to do better work. — Seth Godin

Giving Gifts Quotes By Jeff Goins

We who were born into privilege and opportunity were given these gifts with an expectation: to give them away. — Jeff Goins

Giving Gifts Quotes By Pope Benedict XVI

The Holy Spirit gives us joy. And he is joy. Joy is the gift in which all the other gifts are included. It is the expression of happiness, of being in harmony with ourselves, that which can only come from being in harmony with God and with his creation. It belongs to the nature of joy to be radiant; it must communicate itself. The missionary spirit of the Church is none other than the impulse to communicate the joy which has been given. — Pope Benedict XVI

Giving Gifts Quotes By Zayn Malik

Now that we have a bit of money, it is nice to get gifts for people. Before I was getting and not really giving. — Zayn Malik

Giving Gifts Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

I would much prefer to enlarge your life by giving you the gift of my life, rather than gifting your life to material obesity with frivolous trinkets. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Giving Gifts Quotes By Vera Nazarian

Gift giving is a true art.
1. You need to understand the person to whom you intend to give the gift.
2. You need to know what they truly want.
3. You must be able to give it to them.
Anything less is a symptom of varying degrees, on your part, of ignorance, distance, or insult.
But if you cannot afford the right gift, telling the person what you would do if you could, justifies everything - as you present that not-so-perfect substitute. — Vera Nazarian

Giving Gifts Quotes By Ambrose Burnside

I am opposed to the wholesale giving away of the public lands to railroad corporations and other like institutions; at the same time, I believe that the government can encourage, by gifts, great national enterprises which are for the common weal and are so placed that they cannot properly expect local support. — Ambrose Burnside

Giving Gifts Quotes By Maggie Wilderotter

One of the biggest gifts that you can give your daughter is to show her that you love what you do. — Maggie Wilderotter

Giving Gifts Quotes By Frank A. Clark

You may give gifts without caring, but you can't care without giving. — Frank A. Clark

Giving Gifts Quotes By Mallory Ortberg

Some people give gifts in order to bewilder, confuse, and manipulate their recipients. — Mallory Ortberg

Giving Gifts Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

A parent holds within their hands the gift of a child to which they must expend the gift of themselves. And in such a monumental outpouring, the parent will lose both the child and the gifts given, but they will possess the far greater gift of knowing that they gave both. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Giving Gifts Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

Chilled ice tea that tempered tepid summer days lathered thick with humidity. Frothy hot chocolate that cut winter's chill. Bedtime prayers that sent our fears scrambling in panicked flight. Golden bouquets of dandelions aromatically rich with the gift of summers scent. Family meals that wove yet another binding thread in and through the tapestry of those seated around the table. These are but the slightest sampling of the innumerable gifts my mother handed to this child of hers. And without them, my life would be impoverished beyond words to describe. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Giving Gifts Quotes By David Sedaris

The good thing about being gay, though, I always believed, is that you didn't make anyone go to a wedding. Nobody wants to go to a wedding. Nobody. It kind of bothers me now that you have to go to gay weddings, too. I don't care. It's still a wedding. And I would give anybody double gifts if they would elope. — David Sedaris

Giving Gifts Quotes By Henri J.M. Nouwen

The Importance of Receiving
Receiving often is harder than giving. Giving is very important: giving insight, giving hope, giving courage, giving advice, giving support, giving money, and, most of all, giving ourselves. Without giving there is no brotherhood and sisterhood.
But receiving is just as important, because by receiving we reveal to the givers that they have gifts to offer. When we say, "Thank you, you gave me hope; thank you, you gave me a reason to live; thank you, you allowed me to realise my dream," we make givers aware of their unique and precious gifts. Sometimes it is only in the eyes of the receivers that givers discover their gifts. — Henri J.M. Nouwen

Giving Gifts Quotes By Carolyn Wells

'Tis blessed to bestow, and yet,
Could we bestow the gifts we get,
And keep the ones we give away,
How happy were our Christmas day! — Carolyn Wells

Giving Gifts Quotes By J.R.R. Tolkien

My own dear mother was a martyr indeed, and it is not to everybody that God grants so easy a way to his great gifts as he did to Hilary and myself, giving us a mother who killed herself with labour and trouble to ensure us keeping the faith. — J.R.R. Tolkien

Giving Gifts Quotes By Janet Erskine Stuart

I wish that Christmas may be happy and heavenly, and the holidays glow with the gifts of the inner life that God will give to each one. — Janet Erskine Stuart

Giving Gifts Quotes By Mark Twain

Sum all the gifts that man is endowed with, and we give our greatest share of admiration to his energy. And today, if I were a heathen, I would rear a statue to Energy and fall down and worship it! — Mark Twain

Giving Gifts Quotes By Ignatius Of Loyola

There is no doubt that God will never be wanting to us, provided that He finds in us that humility which makes us worthy of His gifts, the desire of possessing them, and the promptitude to co-operate industriously with the graces He gives us. — Ignatius Of Loyola

Giving Gifts Quotes By Neale Donald Walsch

It is not a question of whether you 'have what it takes,' but of whether you take the gifts you have - they are plenteous - and share them with all the world. — Neale Donald Walsch

Giving Gifts Quotes By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

For here lies the pleasure of living: In taking God's bounties, and giving The gifts back again. — Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Giving Gifts Quotes By Jack W. Hayford

Jesus gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit, yet when the Spirit comes, He is loaded with packages! He desires to release much more in us and through us than we could ever imagine. These gifts are given for delivery, not for accumulation. We receive them to pass them on to others. — Jack W. Hayford

Giving Gifts Quotes By Homer

Never to be cast away are the gifts of the gods, magnificent, which they give of their own will, no man could have them for wanting them. — Homer

Giving Gifts Quotes By William Barclay

It may well be a sign of the decadence of the Church and the failure of Christianity that gifts have to be coaxed out of people, and that often they will not give at all unless they get something for their money in the way of entertainment or of goods. Giving which is real giving has a certain recklessness in it. — William Barclay

Giving Gifts Quotes By Henri Nouwen

Friendship is one of the greatest gifts a human being can receive. It is a bond beyond common goals, common interests, or common histories. It is a bond stronger than sexual union can create, deeper than a shared fate can solidify, and even more intimate than the bonds of marriage or community. Friendship is being with the other in joy and sorrow, even when we cannot increase the joy or decrease the sorrow. It is a unity of souls that gives nobility and sincerity to love. Friendship makes all of life shine brightly. — Henri Nouwen

Giving Gifts Quotes By Kate Kennedy

five different love languages: quality time, the giving of gifts, acts of service, physical touch, or words of encouragement. — Kate Kennedy

Giving Gifts Quotes By Saint Augustine

The Lord says, 'Whoever has, to him shall be given' (Mt. 13:12). He will give, then, to those who have; that is to say, if they use freely and cheerfully what they have received, He will add to and perfect His gifts. — Saint Augustine

Giving Gifts Quotes By Michael Meade

What's secretly in the water
of modern culture is that people
enter the world empty.
That's a very dangerous idea,
because if everybody's empty
than other people can get us
to do whatever they want
because there's nothing
in us to stand against it.

But if we came to do
something that's meaningful,
that involves giving and
making the world a more
beautiful, healthy, lively place,
then you become a difficult person
to move around and manipulate. — Michael Meade

Giving Gifts Quotes By Michael Gurian

We expect him to take up a lot of space in his gangly experiments with life, and we teach him, through task, work, game, activity, and experience how to use that space. Above all, we give him mentoring and supervision that respects and teaches his gifts, his visions, even his shadowy inner demons — Michael Gurian

Giving Gifts Quotes By Carl Sagan

One of the greatest gifts adults can give - to their offspring and to their society - is to read to children. — Carl Sagan

Giving Gifts Quotes By Tony Blair

The best philanthropy is not just about giving money but giving leadership. The best philanthropists bring the gifts that made them successful-the drive, the determination, the refusal to accept that something can't be done if it needs to be into their philanthropy. — Tony Blair

Giving Gifts Quotes By Thomas C. Oden

Faith does not cease being active as it undertakes the process of rigorous thinking. One need not disavow the gifts of intellect in giving thought to their Giver — Thomas C. Oden

Giving Gifts Quotes By Paulina Porizkova

Beauty, unlike the rest of the gifts handed out at birth, does not require dedication, patience and hard work to pay off. But it's also the only gift that does not keep on giving. — Paulina Porizkova

Giving Gifts Quotes By Jacques Lusseyran

People often say that blindness sharpens hearing, but I don't think this is so. My ears were hearing no better, but I was making better use of them. Sight is a miraculous instrument offering us all the riches of physical life. But we get nothing in this world without paying for it, and in return for all the benefits that sight brings we are forced to give up others whose existence we don't even suspect. These were the gifts I received in such abundance. — Jacques Lusseyran

Giving Gifts Quotes By Samantha Bee

I can agree in principle that it's the thought that counts when giving or getting gifts, but I would also like to point out that "if there's no thought...it doesn't count." I don't wish to be reminded that you didn't want to take the time to get to know me, or perhaps you have even known me my whole life and simply don't care about me. All I ask is that you not rub my face in it. — Samantha Bee

Giving Gifts Quotes By Jasmuheen

Our gifts to this world, and this realm's gifts to us can come in many ways, often as we least expect them but they come especially when we are open to give, open to receive. — Jasmuheen

Giving Gifts Quotes By Delphine Dryden

He called it taking, but I felt as though he were giving me these things, these actions, like pieces of himself. Challenging me to receive these odd gifts, because they were all he had to give. His attention, his regard. His respect, which was the strangest thing of all, because I had expected to feel degraded at some point in all this and instead I felt valued beyond measure. Cherished. Strong. — Delphine Dryden

Giving Gifts Quotes By Shakti Gawain

Every one of us comes into this life with lessons to learn and gifts to give. — Shakti Gawain

Giving Gifts Quotes By Barbara Holland

One's own flowers and some of one's own vegetables make acceptable, free, self-congratulatory gifts when visiting friends, though giving zucchini - or leaving it on the doorstep, ringing the bell, and running - is a social faux pas. — Barbara Holland

Giving Gifts Quotes By Israelmore Ayivor

Giving does not only preceed receiving; it is the reason for it. It is in giving that we receive. — Israelmore Ayivor

Giving Gifts Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

Being a mother is not about 'birthing a child into the world.' Rather, it is about repeatedly 'birthing into the child' a steady sense of their inestimable worth, a prized understanding of their authentic self, a conviction that the impossible is largely the stuff of myth, and an utterly unwavering belief that cold actions of men never represent the warm heart of God. It is the relentless act of birthing these things into the innermost soul of a thirsty child that makes a woman a mother. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Giving Gifts Quotes By Jeffrey R. Holland

Only when we see that sacred, unadorned child of our devotion-the Babe of Bethlehem-will we know why the giving of gifts is so appropriate — Jeffrey R. Holland

Giving Gifts Quotes By Nicky Gumbel

The most precious gift you can give someone is the gift of your time and attention. — Nicky Gumbel

Giving Gifts Quotes By Joyce Meyer

One of the best gifts we can give ourselves is time alone with God. — Joyce Meyer

Giving Gifts Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

The greatest dividends in life are those that we give away. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Giving Gifts Quotes By Sharman Apt Russell

I feel the need to fall in love with the world, to forge that relationship ever more strongly. But maybe I don't have to work so hard. I have thought nature indifferent to humans, to one more human, but maybe the reverse is true. Maybe the world is already in love, giving us these gifts all the time - the glimpse of a fox, tracks in the sand, a breeze, a flower
calling out all the time: take this. And this. And this. Don't turn away. — Sharman Apt Russell

Giving Gifts Quotes By Rick Warren

Christmas is the time for celebration, so I'm not against decorating, putting on lights, buying gifts. In fact, the whole reason we give gifts is the wise men gave gifts to Jesus at the first Christmas, and that started the gift-giving process. — Rick Warren

Giving Gifts Quotes By Anne Lamott

You begin to cry and writhe and yell and then to keep on crying; and finally, grief ends up giving you the two best gifts: softness and illumination. Every — Anne Lamott

Giving Gifts Quotes By Wilford Woodruff

If we are going to do away with polygamy, it would only be one feather in the bird, one ordinance in the Church and Kingdom. Do away with that, then we must do away with the prophets and apostles, with revelation and the gifts and graces of the Gospel, and finally give up our religion altogether. — Wilford Woodruff

Giving Gifts Quotes By Roger Ebert

One of the gifts one movie lover can give another is the title of a wonderful film they have not yet discovered — Roger Ebert

Giving Gifts Quotes By Bella Heathcote

I like giving music-themed gifts. I've given a couple of music documentaries to boys. Especially if they don't have the same taste as me, I try to infiltrate their mind with my favourite bands. — Bella Heathcote

Giving Gifts Quotes By David Whyte

Put down the weight of your aloneness and ease into the conversation. Pay attention to everything in the world as if it's alive. Realize everything has its own discrete existence outside your story. By doing this, you open to gifts and lessons that the world has to give you. — David Whyte

Giving Gifts Quotes By Anderson Cooper

In my opinion, the ability to love another person is one of God's greatest gifts, and I thank God every day for enabling me to give and share love with the people in my life. — Anderson Cooper

Giving Gifts Quotes By Tony Robbins

Other than our love our labor is one of the most sacred gifts we can give. When your labor is your love, life is sacred. Love what you do or change. — Tony Robbins

Giving Gifts Quotes By Israelmore Ayivor

Ingratitude to God does not rely only on our refusal to give the verbal thanksgiving due to Him, but also recides in our inability to appreciate his gifts and potentials in us by leaving them untapped. — Israelmore Ayivor

Giving Gifts Quotes By Russell Simmons

There are songs and melody that make you really happy. And there are spiritual gifts that you have - giving these gifts away sometimes gives you that feeling of inspiration. These seconds of awareness make you realize that any second can be your favorite one, and it really is up to you. — Russell Simmons

Giving Gifts Quotes By Maria Popova

Be generous with your time and your resources and with giving credit and, especially, with your words. It's so much easier to be a critic than a celebrator. Always remember there is a human being on the other end of every exchange and behind every cultural artifact being critiqued. To understand and be understood, those are among life's greatest gifts, and every interaction is an opportunity to exchange them. — Maria Popova

Giving Gifts Quotes By Ellen J. Barrier

The things we share with each other are deeply felt from within our hearts that neither of us will ever forget. For the gifts that are priceless are the ones that are heartfelt; their roots are within our soul. They are the greatest gifts, of all. — Ellen J. Barrier

Giving Gifts Quotes By Mary Fairfax

If God gives you gifts you must use them to justify your life. It is what the Greeks called divine discontent that drives you. — Mary Fairfax

Giving Gifts Quotes By Andrew Weil

Giving gifts to others is a fundamental activity, as old as humanity itself. Yet in the modern, complex world, the particulars of gift-giving can be extraordinarily challenging. — Andrew Weil

Giving Gifts Quotes By Rod McKuen

The gifts that one receives for giving are so immeasurable that it is almost an injustice to accept them. — Rod McKuen

Giving Gifts Quotes By Benjamin F Sullivan

Life is not a gift to be received, but rather, infinite gifts that we can give. — Benjamin F Sullivan

Giving Gifts Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

It is my great misfortune that I have to measure your love by the money gifts you give for Daridranarayana. — Mahatma Gandhi

Giving Gifts Quotes By John Boyle O'Reilly

Take gifts with a sigh: most men give to be paid. — John Boyle O'Reilly

Giving Gifts Quotes By Linda Sunshine

Our mother's first gift to us comes at the moment we are born, because Mom, as she will subsequently remind us over and over, gives us the Gift of Life Like many of the gifts we receive from our mothers, the Gift of Life usually doesn't fit properly and is almost never returnable without a major hassle. — Linda Sunshine

Giving Gifts Quotes By Charlie Cook

The idea of regularly acknowledging our indebtedness to the natural world and giving thanks for the many gifts we receive from it, or considering other species to be our close "relations" which many indigenous peoples still do, couldn't be more alien to most of us. — Charlie Cook

Giving Gifts Quotes By P.H. Ditchfield

The custom of giving presents on New Year's Day is as old as the time of the Romans, who attached superstitious importance to it, and thought the gifts brought them a lucky year. — P.H. Ditchfield

Giving Gifts Quotes By Swami Vivekananda

The coward, afraid of the lash, with one hand wipes his eyes and gives with the other. Of what avail are such gifts? — Swami Vivekananda

Giving Gifts Quotes By Jean Baudrillard

In symbolic exchange, of which the gift is our most proximate illustration, the object is not an object: it is inseparable from the concrete relation in which it is exchanged, the transferential pact that it seals between two persons: it is thus not independent as such. It has, properly speaking, neither use value nor (economic) exchange value. The object given has symbolic exchange value. — Jean Baudrillard
