Generosity


Be just before you are generous. - Unknown

Generosity is not giving me that which I need more than you do, but it is in giving me that which you need more than I do. - Kahil Gibran

Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out. - Frank A. Clark

What is called generosity is usually only the vanity of giving; we enjoy the vanity more than the thing given. - Duc de La Rochefoucauld

What seems to be generosity is often no more than disguised ambition, which overlooks a small interest in order to secure a great one. - Duc de La Rochefoucauld
