On Giving and Receiving

“Let us forget all that we are taught about how it is noble to give and humiliating to receive. For most people, generosity consists only in giving, and yet receiving is also an act of love. Allowing someone else to make us happy will make them happy too.”

From: Manuscript Found in Accra by Paulo Coelho
