Always question WHY you are doing something.
Is it a free-will gift or an obligation?

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I would rather start a family than finish one.

it is because it resembles friendship rather than love.

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I would rather exercise than read a newspaper.
- Kim Alexis
