Giving and Receiving

Posted by Tom Locke on January 27th, 2011 filed in Education, Life

Many of us can remember back to when our mothers would say, “It is better to give then receive”.

As a young boy, I used to hear this adage from my mother around Christmas time.  As I grew older, I soon realized that giving and receiving were two sides of the same coin.  To date, my experience has been that everything that I have given away has returned with interest.

I find this “phenomena” to be somewhat integral to a comment Albert Einstein made about one’s approach to life.  He said, “Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value”.
