    For me,and I suspect for all people who are generous is the way it makes you feel. Whether you give someone your time, some assistance, clothes, food, or money. The feeling is the same, and makes sense. When you consider that the ideals associated generosity are nobility,gallantry,and strength. And there’s no doubt that generosity requires strength of character.

    Peace!
