Seneca On Giving

    Seneca   (c. 4 BC – AD 65)
  Seneca (c. 4 BC – AD 65)

The wise man… enjoys the giving more than the recipient enjoys the receiving… None but the wise man knows how to return a favour. Even a fool can return it in proportion to his knowledge and his power; his fault would be a lack of knowledge rather than a lack of will or desire.
