Give without remembering. Take without forgetting. Elizabeth Asquith Bibesco
Remember everything you’ve received in your life that has formed you into the person you are today. The care you received as an infant that allowed you to survive your helplessness. The nourishment you’ve received from the planet. The kind word and helping hand of a stranger when you stumbled. The knowledge from your teachers. The hot meal a generous person shared with you. The pep talk from a good friend who reminded you to believe in yourself. A hearty laugh from a funny movie.
Give, because you remember. Give, without remembering to whom you’ve given and trust that they will pay it forward in their own way and at the right time.
