Give a little, get back a lot

imagesRemember what they taught you when you were a kid:

It’s better to give than to receive.

  • No good deed goes unpunished (Clair Boothe Luce).
  • When a fellow says, “It is not the money but the principle of the thing,” it`s the money (Kin Hubbard).
  • Where large sums of money are concerned, it is advisable to trust nobody (Agatha Christie).
  • If you wish to be a success in the world, promise everything, deliver nothing (Napoleon).
  • The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization (Ralph Waldo Emerson).
