Living -- the Act of Giving



I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity... I didn't feel better or stronger than anyone else
but it seemed no longer important whether everyone loved me or not--
more important now was for me to love them.
Feeling that way turns your whole life around;
living becomes the act of giving.

- Beverly Sills

Easier said than lived. We need to feel loved and part of a tribe of like-souls. Being engaged with the lives of others gives us great satisfaction.
