Generosity #BeWoW #WritersQuoteWednesday #Quotes

I ran across a quote this weekend that struck me because it was so simple and yet so profound.   

“Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.”
Khalil Gibran

I’ll be honest: I didn’t recognize the name when I read it. It wasn’t until I read about him (click his name for more) that I realized he was such a well known writer and poet; he is the third best selling poet in history in fact.
