Gift quotes page 3

I've been labeled obsessive. A banker called me bipolar yesterday on the phone. Bipolar, ADD,

Grant Cardone

When it comes down to pure ornamental cursing, the native American is gifted above the
sons of men.

the present.
Bil Keane

A good wife lost, is God's gift lost.
Benjamin Franklin

Forgiveness isn't about the person or people being forgiven - it's a gift you give yourself that
allows your heart to stop being contracted. When you forgive, you release the toxic
resentment and anger you're holding in your heart, finally freeing yourself to get on with your
life.
Marci Shimoff

Bound is he that takes gifts.
English proverb

tremendous way to learn, relax, and even escape.
Richard Carlson

A padded jacket is an acceptable gift even in summer.
Japanese proverb

There's a wonderful truth that's so central to living. I find it extraordinary that schools do not
teach it. The essential truth is this: Each of us has some gift - a talent, a skill, a craft, a
knack - that gives us pleasure and engages us, and the path to our happiness lies within that
gift.
Nick Vujicic

I hate the giving of the hand unless the whole man accompanies it.

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.
Chinese proverb

No one has ever become poor by giving.
Anne Frank

It takes courage to love but pain through love is the purifying fire which those who love
generously know. We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut
themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore
shrink until life is a mere living death.
Eleanor Roosevelt

Part of your mission in life then must be to share your gifts with as many people as possible.

A wicked man's gift has a touch of his master.
English proverb

Unless we fully give ourselves over to our endeavors, we are hollow, superficial people and
we never develop our natural gifts.
Epictetus

If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. 
Don Miguel Ruiz

Children are a wonderful gift. They have an extraordinary capacity to see into the heart of
things and to expose sham and humbug for what they are.
Desmond Tutu

Gifts are effective means of persuasion.
Philippine proverb

Part of what makes us human is the hunger to realize our greatest gifts and live life fully. We
were built to shine.
Robin Sharma

When a compliment comes from a man seeking nothing in return, it's a gift of truth, a piece of
his vulnerability and infinitely more powerful as a result.
Mark Manson, Models - Attract Women Through Honesty

The best gifts are those which exect no return.
Norwegian proverb

Practice random acts of kindness... There are five toll bridges in the San Francisco Bay Area.
A while back, some people began paying the tolls of the cars immediately behind them. The
drivers would drive to the toll window, and pull out their dollar bill, only to be informed, "Your
toll has been paid by the car ahead of you." This is an example of a spontaneous, random
gift, something given without expectation of or demand for anything in return. You can
imagine the impact that tiny gift had on the driver of the car! Perhaps it encouraged him to
be a nicer person that day. Often a single act of kindness sets a series of kind acts in
motion.
Richard Carlson

You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world's happiness now. How?
By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged.

Gifts are according to the giver.
German proverb

Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something
back by becoming more.
Anthony Robbins

A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer.
Seneca

Writing is an extreme privilege but it's also a gift. It's a gift to yourself and it's a gift of giving
a story to someone.
Amy Tan

I wish for you a life of wealth, health and happiness; a life in which you give to yourself the
gift of patience, the virtue of reason, the value of knowledge, and the influence of faith in
your own ability to dream about and achieve worthy rewards.
Jim Rohn

It is not the gift which is precious, it is the love.
Russian proverb
