'Although many of us have grown up believing that it is our solemn duty to give, give, and keep on giving to others, that is only a half-truth—a myth that prevents us from living joyfully and giving fully. Instead, consider what the world’s great sages say: You have a duty to give to others and to give to yourself. When you are in need, you must also receive. This advice sounds obvious, but how many of us are even near the top of our own copious to-do lists?'

It is always my duty
to give to others.

It is my duty to give to myself as well as to others.
By giving to myself, I am giving to others.'
Patricia Spardaro
