Giver Or Banker

“The only gift is a portion of thyself.”

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

When a gift is given, it’s given.

When you expect something in return it’s not a gift. It’s a loan.

When you give a loan you become a banker.

I’ve never met an elderly banker that wishes he had made more loans in his life. I’ve only met elderly people that wish they had given more.

A gift is not a loan, but the return on investment is far greater.

Yesterday’s gift of time … Dropped off a couple bags of clothes at Goodwill.

About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!
