Go Giver Quotes By Arianna Huffington

Be a go-giver, not a go-getter — Arianna Huffington

Go Giver Quotes By Charles Stanley

God wants us to seek Him more than anything else, even more than we seek answers to prayer. When we come to God in prayer, sometimes our hearts are so full of what we want that we leave God out. Our minds become consumed with the gift rather than the giver. — Charles Stanley

Go Giver Quotes By Devdutt Pattanaik

Indian sages avoided the written word as they realized ideas were never definitive; they were transformed depending on the intellectual and emotional abilities of the giver as well as the receiver. — Devdutt Pattanaik

Go Giver Quotes By Craig D. Lounsbrough

To calculate sacrifice is to attempt to sacrifice safely, and safe sacrifice is one of the most outrageous oxymoron's I can think of. — Craig D. Lounsbrough

Go Giver Quotes By Jeremy Griffith

Pseudo idealism: apparent charitable behaviour that on scrutiny is revealed as selfish, because the giver is engaging in it only so that he or she can feel good about him or herself — Jeremy Griffith

Go Giver Quotes By Valaida Fullwood

Giving Back is like chicken and dumplings for the giver's soul ... warm, familiar and filled with rich and nourishing content. — Valaida Fullwood

Go Giver Quotes By Norman Mailer

I'm a great believer in the hereafter, in karma, in reincarnation. It does make sense. I believe that God is not just a law-giver, but a creative artist. The greatest of all. And what characterises artists is that they want to redo their work. Maybe it didn't come off perfectly, so they want to see it done again, and improved. Reincarnation is a way for God to improve his earlier works. — Norman Mailer

Go Giver Quotes By Eusebius

But he alone having reached our deep corruption, he alone having taken upon himself our labors, he alone having suffered the punishments due for our impieties, having recovered us who were not half dead merely, but were already in tombs and sepulchers, and altogether foul and offensive, saves us, both anciently and now, by his beneficent zeal, beyond the expectation of any one, even of ourselves, and imparts liberally of the Father's benefits - he who is the giver of life and light, our great Physician and King and Lord, the Christ of God. — Eusebius

Go Giver Quotes By Catherine Hall

The Lord loveth a cheerful giver. He also accepteth from a grouch. — Catherine Hall

Go Giver Quotes By Louisa May Alcott

And Polly did n't think she had done much; but it was one of the little things which are always waiting to be done in this world of ours, where rainy days come so often, where spirits get out of tune, and duty won't go hand in hand with pleasure. Little things of this sort are especially good work for little people; a kind little thought, an unselfish little act, a cheery little word, are so sweet and comfortable, that no one can fail to feel their beauty and love the giver, no matter how small they are. Mothers do a deal of this sort of thing, unseen, unthanked, but felt and remembered long afterward, and never lost, for this is the simple magic that binds hearts together, and keeps home happy. — Louisa May Alcott

Go Giver Quotes By William Blake

Answer this to yourselves, & expel from among you those who pretend to despise the labours of Art & Science, which alone are the labours of the Gospel: Is not this plain & manifest to the thought? Can you think at all, & not pronounce heartily! That to Labour in Knowledge. is to Build up Jerusalem: and to Despise Knowledge, is to Despise Jerusalem & her Builders. And remember: He who despises & mocks a Mental Gift in another; calling it pride & selfishness & sin; mocks Jesus the giver of every Mental Gift. which always appear to the ignorance-loving Hypocrite, as Sins. but that which is a Sin in the sight of cruel Man. is not so in the sight of our kind God. — William Blake

Go Giver Quotes By C. G. Jung

Words like "Society" and "State" are so concretized that they are almost personified. In the opinion of the man in the street, the "State," far more than any king in history, is the inexhaustible giver of all good; the "State" is invoked, made responsible, grumbled at, and so on and so forth. Society is elevated to the rank of a supreme ethical principle; indeed, it is even credited with positively creative capacities. — C. G. Jung

Go Giver Quotes By Cormac McCarthy

Ah me, thou Destiny, Giver of evil gifts. — Cormac McCarthy

Go Giver Quotes By Lynn Hall

It's a very brave thing for anyone to do, offering love to another person. We make ourselves so vulnerable when we do it, don't we? We give that other person such power to hurt us and to rob us of our dignity. No one should ever belittle that gift, nor the giver. — Lynn Hall

Go Giver Quotes By Timothy Pina

God asks us to help each other & be a cheerful giver from your heart to others in need but not to be a fool. Don't ever be a fool — Timothy Pina

Go Giver Quotes By Lois Lowry

The community of the Giver had achieved at such great price. A community without danger or pain. But also, a community without music, color or art. And books. — Lois Lowry

Go Giver Quotes By Mike Murdock

The Holy Spirit is the Giver of life. — Mike Murdock

Go Giver Quotes By Rajneesh

You shout and the valleys shout, or you sing and the valleys sing. Each heart is a valley. If you pour love into it, it will respond. The first lesson of love is not to ask for love, but just to give. Become a giver. And people are doing just the opposite. Even when they give, they give only with the idea that love should come back. It is a bargain. They don't share, they don't share freely. They share with a condition. They go on watching out of the corner of their eye whether it is coming back or not. Very poor people ... they don't know the natural functioning of love. — Rajneesh

Go Giver Quotes By George Washington Cable

Everybody knows the Lord loveth a cheerful giver. — George Washington Cable

Go Giver Quotes By Fredrik Backman

On the other hand he tried to point out to her that she shouldn't give money to the beggars in the street, as they'd only buy schnapps with it. But she kept doing it. "They can do what they like with the money," she said. When Ove protested she just smiled and took his big hands in hers and kissed them, explaining that when a person gives to another person it's not just the receiver who's blessed. It's the giver. — Fredrik Backman

Go Giver Quotes By Thomas Aquinas

Many cry to the Lord that they may win riches, that they may avoid losses; they cry that their family may be established, they ask for temporal happiness, for worldly dignities; and, lastly, they cry for bodily health, which is the patrimony of the poor. For these and suchlike things many cry to the Lord; hardly one cries for the Lord Himself! How easy it is for a man to desire all manner of things from the Lord and yet not desire the Lord Himself! As though the gift could be sweeter than the Giver! — Thomas Aquinas

Go Giver Quotes By Lois Lowry

'Gathering Blue' was a separate book. I wanted to explore what a society might become after a catastrophic world event. Only at the end did I realize I could make it connect to 'The Giver.' — Lois Lowry

Go Giver Quotes By Matshona Dhliwayo

The giver is always worth more than the gift. — Matshona Dhliwayo

Go Giver Quotes By Nicholas Sparks

Gifts of the heart can't be claimed by anyone except the giver. — Nicholas Sparks

Go Giver Quotes By Alex Haley

If you need to know history, the real story of those before you, then you should go to the library and read newspaper clippings of someone like Muhammad Ali every day, then it might giver you some understanding of the man. — Alex Haley

Go Giver Quotes By Sri Aurobindo

What you call the psychic being is the mind of the vital. The heart is the seat of this mind. And this mind is the essence of the senses. It receives things from outside, acts upon things that are outside - knows, gives consent, takes interest in them. But this mind cannot be the Ishwara, but it is the knower, the giver of the consent. — Sri Aurobindo

Go Giver Quotes By Brenton Brown

God is the Creator and the Giver of life, and the life that He gives does not run dry. — Brenton Brown

Go Giver Quotes By Lewis Hyde

I discovered in belles-lettres that the Giver can be transformed into his own Gift, that is, into a pure object. Chance had made me a man, generosity would make me a book. JEAN-PAUL SARTRE — Lewis Hyde

Go Giver Quotes By Ayn Rand

Any human being who accepts the help of another, knows that good will is the giver's only motive and that good will is the payment he owes in return. — Ayn Rand

Go Giver Quotes By Kahlil Gibran

For in truth it is life that gives unto life-while you, who deem yourself a giver, are but a witness. — Kahlil Gibran

Go Giver Quotes By Chris Hardwick

People LOVE giving bad news. They love it. This is because negative information GREATLY empowers the giver and makes them feel important. — Chris Hardwick

Go Giver Quotes By Rabindranath Tagore

The food which I get by begging is divine." After I had thought over what she said, I understood her meaning. When we get our food precariously as alms, we remember God the giver. But when we receive our food regularly at home, as a matter of course, we are apt to regard it as ours by right. — Rabindranath Tagore

Go Giver Quotes By Belle Aurora

I don't utter a word of complaint, because let's face it, Nox doesn't seem like a giver of fucks. — Belle Aurora

Go Giver Quotes By Roman Payne

The 'Muse' is not an artistic mystery, but a mathematical equation. The gift are those ideas you think of as you drift to sleep. The giver is that one you think of when you first awake. — Roman Payne

Go Giver Quotes By Laura Riding Jackson

Forgive me, giver, if I destroy the gift:
it is so nearly what would please me
I cannot but perfect it — Laura Riding Jackson

Go Giver Quotes By Madeleine L'Engle

So perhaps the reason I shuddered at the idea of writing something about 'Christian art' is that to paint a picture or to write a story or to compose a song is an incarnational activity. The artist is a servant who is willing to be a birth-giver. In a very real sense the artist (male or female) should be like Mary, who, when the angel told her that she was to bear the Messiah, was obedient to the command. Obedience is an unpopular word nowadays, but the artist must be obedient to the work, whether it be a symphony, a painting, or a story for a small child. I believe that each work of art, whether it is a work of great genius or something very small, comes to the artist and says 'Here I am. Enflesh me. Give birth to me.' And the artist either says 'My soul doth magnify the Lord' and willingly becomes the bearer of the work, or refuses; but the obedient response is not necessicarily a conscious one, and not everyone has the humble, courageous obedience of Mary. — Madeleine L'Engle

Go Giver Quotes By Mark Deklin

Accept the gift and honor the giver. — Mark Deklin

Go Giver Quotes By Philip Yancey

Grace is free only because the giver himself has borne the cost. — Philip Yancey

Go Giver Quotes By Philip Yancey

The key is this: the main benefit of giving is in its effect on the giver. Yes, people in Africa and India need my financial help, as the fund-raising appeals urgently remind me. But in truth my need to give is every bit as desperate as their need to receive. — Philip Yancey

Go Giver Quotes By Claire Tomalin

Everyone finds their own version of Charles Dickens. The child-victim, the irrepressibly ambitious young man, the reporter, the demonic worker, the tireless walker. The radical, the protector of orphans, helper of the needy, man of good works, the republican. The hater and the lover of America. The giver of parties, the magician, the traveler. — Claire Tomalin

Go Giver Quotes By Jabari Asim

What y'all ladies got to share? Hmmm, what you bitches got?"

Aunt Georgia sighed and squinted at the boy. She said, "The Lord loves a cheerful giver, but I'm just not in the mood."

The thug moved his hand from his crotch to his scalp, still scratching. "What in the hell's that supposed to mean?" Mrs. Cleveland raised and pumped her walking stick, which, it turned out, was a double-barreled shotgun.

"It means take one more step," she said, "and I'll blast you to hell, you ignorant-ass bastard. — Jabari Asim

Go Giver Quotes By Sadhu Sundar Singh

Prayer does not mean asking God for all kinds of things we want, it is rather the desire for God Himself, the only Giver of Life. — Sadhu Sundar Singh

Go Giver Quotes By Charles F. Glassman

Unsolicited advice is usually more about the needs of the giver than the receiver. — Charles F. Glassman

Go Giver Quotes By Annette Vaillancourt

There is nothing virtuous about giving exclusively, especially in a relationship. If you are only the giver, then your relationships will be one-sided; there will be no energetic interplay that energizes you as a couple. — Annette Vaillancourt

Go Giver Quotes By Oliver Goldsmith

Good counsel rejected returns to enrich the givers bosom. — Oliver Goldsmith

Go Giver Quotes By Jeff Bridges

Memories are not just about the past. They determine our future. — Jeff Bridges

Go Giver Quotes By Robert D. Hales

In some quiet way, the expression and feelings of gratitude have a wonderful cleansing or healing nature. Gratitude brings warmth to the giver and the receiver alike. Gratitude expressed to our Heavenly Father in prayer for what we have brings a calming peace - a peace which allows us to not canker our souls for what we don't have. — Robert D. Hales

Go Giver Quotes By Martin Luther

The heart of the giver makes the gift dear and precious. — Martin Luther

Go Giver Quotes By Swami Vivekananda

In the world take always the position of the giver. Give everything and look for no return. Give love, give help, give service, give any little thing you can, but keep out barter. Make no conditions and none will be imposed on you. Let us give out of our own bounty, just as God gives to us. — Swami Vivekananda

Go Giver Quotes By Louie Giglio

God is not a taker. God is a giver. — Louie Giglio

Go Giver Quotes By Muhammad Yunus

They said, we have education, but what about jobs? So I started telling them, you should be taking a pledge, and the pledge should be: 'I'm not a job seeker; I'm a job giver.' Prepare yourself to be a job giver. — Muhammad Yunus

Go Giver Quotes By Janvier Chouteu-Chando

Kindness is a source of relief to the soul of the giver, creating a sense of fortitude that is incomprehensible to those who do not know what kindness is all about. — Janvier Chouteu-Chando

Go Giver Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

God is the giver of breath. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Go Giver Quotes By Margaret Forster

I don't like taking from anyone. I'd rather be a giver, though not for any worthy reason. It's about control, obviously. If I give, I control; if I take, I am controlled. If someone offers me something for free I am at once suspicious. — Margaret Forster

Go Giver Quotes By Kathryn Jean Lopez

The gift of The Giver is something good and true and beautiful about what is good and true and beautiful in humanity. — Kathryn Jean Lopez

Go Giver Quotes By Richard Steele

And I pray mark how he begins: he sets not up trophies to himself, but triumphs in his God
"I will love thee, O Lord, my strength." As the love of God is the beginning of all our mercies, so love to God should be the end and effect of them all. As the stream leads us to the spring, so all the gifts of God must lead us to the giver of them. — Richard Steele

Go Giver Quotes By Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

If you are a taker of happiness you get misery, if you are a giver of happiness you get joy and love. — Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Go Giver Quotes By Rachel Corrie

I am a good, strong word giver; I am a jealous guard of my own secrets. Freedom is the rule; I am hungry for one good thing I can do. — Rachel Corrie

Go Giver Quotes By John F. MacArthur Jr.

We knock a time or two at the gate of mercy, and as no friendly messenger opens the door, we go our ways. Too many prayers are like boys' runaway knocks, given, and then the giver is away before the door can be opened. — John F. MacArthur Jr.

Go Giver Quotes By Rebecca Maizel

Kind of why I can't always go along with everyone's happy attitude all the time. Life sucks sometimes and most people don't get it. They think - well all of the people at this school anyway, they think everything is just handed to them. Real easy, ya know? Like, the day is never something you have to fight through.
I placed my hand on top of Tony's and let it rest there for a moment. What could I say? I was a death giver. Happy to do it. I had been so good at being dead. — Rebecca Maizel

Go Giver Quotes By Lois Lowry

The mind can't explain it, and you can't make it go away. It's called love. — Lois Lowry

Go Giver Quotes By Napoleon Hill

The day of the "go-getter" has passed. He has been supplanted by the "go-giver. — Napoleon Hill

Go Giver Quotes By Anne Lamott

Opening myself to my own love and to life's tough loveliness not only was the most delicious, amazing thing on earth but also was quantum. It would radiate out to a cold, hungry world. Beautiful moments heal, as do real cocoa, Pete Seeger, a walk on old fire roads. All I ever wanted since I arrived here on earth were the same things I needed as a baby, to go from cold to warm, lonely to held, the vessel to the giver, empty to full. You can change the world with a hot bath, if you sink into it from a place of knowing you are worth profound care, even when you're dirty and rattled. Who knew? — Anne Lamott

Go Giver Quotes By Anne Lamott

All I ever wanted since I arrived here on earth are the same things I needed as a baby, to go from cold to warm, lonely to held, the vessel to the giver, empty to full. — Anne Lamott

Go Giver Quotes By Elisabeth Elliot

If we hold tightly to anything given to us unwilling to allow it to be used as the Giver means it to be used we stunt the growth of the soul. What God gives us is not necessarily "ours" but only ours to offer back to him, ours to relinguish, ours to lose, ours to let go of, if we want to be our true selves. Many deaths must go into reaching our maturity in Christ, many letting goes. — Elisabeth Elliot

Go Giver Quotes By Antonio Sabato Jr.

I try to be a good person every day. If you didn't like me, there would be something wrong with you, because I really go out and work as hard as I can to help people. I put myself last - always. I'm a giver all the way. — Antonio Sabato Jr.

Go Giver Quotes By Clarice Lispector

The great question she raised involved me: is it worth while? I do not know, my ever greater calm replied, but it is so. There, before my silence, she surrendered to the process, & if she was asking me the great question, it had to go unanswered. She had to giver herself-for nothing. It had to be. And for nothing. She held back, unwilling to surrender. But I waited. I knew that we are that thing that must happen. I could be useful to her silence. And, dazed by misunderstanding, I could hear a heart beating inside me that was not mine. Before my fascinated eyes, like some emanation, she was being transformed into a child. — Clarice Lispector

Go Giver Quotes By Jay-Z

Lyor Cohen, who I consider my mentor, once told me something that he was told by a rabbi about the eight degrees of giving in Judaism. The seventh degree is giving anonymously, so you don't know who you're giving to, and the person on the receiving end doesn't know who gave. The value of that is that the person receiving doesn't have to feel some kind of obligation to the giver and the person giving isn't doing it with an ulterior motive. It's a way of putting the giver and receiver on the same level. It's a tough ideal to reach out for, but it does take away some of the patronizing and showboating that can go on with philanthropy in a capitalist system. The highest level of giving, the eight, is giving in a way that makes the receiver self-sufficient. — Jay-Z

Go Giver Quotes By Marina Of Aguas Santas

And all those who desire to celebrate, glorifying with faith and seeking Your salvation and mercy through me, grant to them Your good things in this world, and to go forth pleasing You, and make them worthy of Your heavenly Kingdom, for You are the only Good One and Lover-of-man, and the Giver of Good things, unto the ages. Amen. — Marina Of Aguas Santas

Go Giver Quotes By William, Saroyan

What the hell are they all looking for? A way out. A way to the right way out. A way to leave. A way to go.
A way to have had it, to have had enough of it, to be done with it.
A decent way to give it all over to the giver of it all, — William, Saroyan

Go Giver Quotes By Joan Rivers

Look, I could go on and on and on telling you why I hate myself, but it's so self-centered ... and I'm not like that. I'm a giver. So I'd rather branch out and start giving it to everyone else. — Joan Rivers

Go Giver Quotes By Michael Beckwith

Authentic gratitude is a way of life. When you wake up in the morning let your first thought be one of thanksgiving that you have another day to walk in the love of God. As you go through your day, see the Giver behind all of the gifts freely being given to you. — Michael Beckwith

Go Giver Quotes By Sarah Young

MY PEACE is the treasure of treasures: the pearl of great price. It is an exquisitely costly gift, both for the Giver and the receiver. I purchased this Peace for you with My blood. You receive this gift by trusting Me in the midst of life's storms. If you have the world's peace - everything going your way - you don't seek My unfathomable Peace. Thank Me when things do not go your way, because spiritual blessings come wrapped in trials. Adverse circumstances are normal in a fallen world. Expect them each day. Rejoice in the face of hardship, for I have overcome the world. MATTHEW 13:46 NKJV; JAMES 1:2; JOHN 16:33 — Sarah Young

Go Giver Quotes By Anne Lamott

You are going to have to give and give and give, or there's no reason for you to be writing. You have to give from the deepest part of yourself, and you are going to have to go on giving, and the giving is going to have to be its own reward. There is no cosmic importance to your getting something published, but there is in learning to be a giver. — Anne Lamott

Go Giver Quotes By Billy Joel

You're a big boy now; you'll never let her go, but that's just the kind of thing she ought to know. Tell her about it. Tell her everything you feel. Giver her every reason to accept that you're for real. — Billy Joel

Go Giver Quotes By David Levithan

Lover, n.
Oh, how I hated this word. So pretentious, like it was always being translated from the French. The tint and taint of illicit, illegitimate affections. Dictionary meaning: a person having a love affair. Impermanent. Unfamilial. Inextricably linked to sex.
I have never wanted a lover. In order to have a lover, I must go back to the root of the word. For I have never wanted a lover, but I have always wanted lover, and to be loved.
There is no word for the recipient of the love. There is only a word for the giver. There is the assumption that lovers come in pairs.
When I say, Be my lover, I don't mean, Let's have an affair. I don't mean Sleep with me. I don't mean, Be my secret.
I want us to go back to that root.
I want you to be the one who loves me.
I want to be the one who loves you. — David Levithan

Go Giver Quotes By Bob Burg John David Mann

Greg has never been on time in his life," his mother said. "Ever he was a boy, Greg has always operated on African time." In Africa, many people have a more relaxed attitude towards time than is common in the United States. What an African would consider on time, an American would probably think of as late. — Bob Burg John David Mann

Go Giver Quotes By Peter Maurin

I want a change, and a radical change. I want a change from an acquisitive society to a functional society, from a society of go-getters to a society of go-givers. — Peter Maurin
