September: Sharing


‘You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet. You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.’ Matthew 5, 13-16


We should give as we would receive, cheerfully, quickly, and without hesitation; for there is no grace in a benefit that sticks to the fingers.

Seneca (4 b.C. – 65 a.D.) Spain


Love only grows by sharing. You can only have more for yourself by giving it away to others.

Brian Tracy (1944 - ) Canada.


Infinitely more important than sharing one's material wealth is sharing the wealth of ourselves - our time and energy, our passion and commitment, and, above all, our love.

William E. Simon (1927 – 2000) USA


There is no delight in owning anything unshared.

Seneca (4BC – 65 AD) Spain


Talent is always conscious of its own abundance, and does not object to sharing.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1918 – 2008) Russia


It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.

Erma Bombeck (1927 – 1998) USA


If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta (1910-1997) Albania.


If a person dreams on his own, this is only a dream. However, if many people share their dream together, this is the beginning of a new reality.

Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928 – 2000) Austria
