Give

Give a f***

Give smiles

Give a minute


Be generous

This is on the top of my list. Connecting with other people depends on your ability to be generous and open up.

“Never work just for money or for power. They won’t save your soul or build a decent family or help you sleep at night.”

— Marian Wright Edelman

“We are here to add what we can to life, not to get what we can from life.”

— William Osler

“Happiness is only real when shared”

— Jon Krakauer

Service

“I slept and I dreamed that life is all joy. I woke and I saw that life is all service. I served and I saw that service is joy.””

— Kahlil Gibran

“A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”

— Gautama Buddha

“When you exhale, it represents the service you are giving to the world.”

— BKS Iyengar

Family and Friends

“When you have a good friend that really cares for you and tries to stick in there with you, you treat them like nothing. Learn to be a good friend because one day you’re gonna look up and say I lost a good friend. Learn how to be respectful to your friends, don’t just start arguments with them and don’t tell them the reason, always remember your friends will be there quicker than your family. Learn to remember you got great friends, don’t forget that and they will always care for you no matter what. Always remember to smile and look up at what you got in life.”

— Marilyn Monroe

“When his life was ruined, his family killed, his farm destroyed, Job knelt down on the ground and yelled up to the heavens, “Why god? Why me?” and the thundering voice of God answered, There’s just something about you that pisses me off.”

— Stephen King

“I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”

— J.R.R. Tolkien

Love

“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect – you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break – her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.”

— Bob Marley
