A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer.
The artist is nothing without the gift, but the gift is nothing without the work
(April 02, 1840 - September 29, 1902)
Every problem has a gift for you in its hands.
(June 23, 1936 - )
One must know not just how to accept a gift, but with what grace to share it.
(April 04, 1928 - )
There is no such thing as a problem without a gift for you in its hands. You seek problems because you need their gifts.
Speak what you think to-day in words as hard as cannon-balls and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
(May 25, 1803 - April 27, 1882)
We know that you are mad with much learning
I am still determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may be.
