"It is one of the most beautiful compensations in life...that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
In recognition of the truth and true beauty of this:
No man can sincerely love another without loving himself.
No man can sincerely teach another without learning himself.
No man can sincerely share faith with another without growing in faith himself.
No man can sincerely give hope to another and not gain more hope himself.
In essence - as I have written before - you cannot truly give without allowing yourself to receive. Always give sincerely of yourself and you will do so with a receptive spirit by default; a truly spectacular part of human nature.
Put the wind in another's sail, and yours will be filled as well.
-Ronda Rae Franklin
