What we give

“We only have what we give.”Isabel Allende

Even though at times in doesn’t seem so, all we are in this world is what we give. Your employer pays you according to your contribution to the firm, the people around you love you and respect you according to the effort you put into building and maintaining those relationships.

The world is but a mirror.

What we give to the world becomes our legacy. What we give becomes the one thing people will never forget.

If you aspire to leave the world better than you found it, you’ll be successful.

If you help people not for want of a certain reward but because it’s the right thing to do.

If you treat those around you better than they treat you.

We only have what we give.

Remember these words.

The richest man in the cemetery is still just as dead as the rest of them.

We only have what we give.

The support we offer others, the love, the care, the respect…

We only have what we give, for all else leaves this world the moment we do.

  2. The best way to have love is to give love, the best way to have happiness is to give happiness so as with power and everything there is. Thank you for this.

    “All you can take with you is all you gave away.” A small caption that is generally missed but encapsulates the entire premise of the movie, ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’. It is found on a photo of George Baileys father when George is stricken with the indecision of choosing between fortifying his life or yielding to fortifying all who live in his sphere. Which choice is everlasting?

  4. So true, Cristian. Thank you for the post.
