101 Giving Quotes That Will Change Your Way of Life & Reasons Why You Should Give.jpg

Heal the world, Heal the world!’ ‘Make it a better place, a better place!’ Not just for you or for me, for everyone that has contributed to your living. There is a reason why every famous personality in history and across the globe have had their share of giving quotes known to the world.

There are three kinds of people in this world, those who have more than enough, those who have just enough, and those who barely have enough.

It all looks like a thin line till survival becomes tough and if you can give, even just a little from your pie, you become a saviour. 

The best feeling in the world is yours!

Why Should You Give?


But, what’s in it for me?

While giving is a selfless act, if this question still lingers your mind, let me tell you, the act of giving has more for the givers than for the receivers.

Here are some ways out of the never-ending list of Why giving is good for you:

1. Lights up your living

It makes you happy from the heart; makes you feel good about your actions and adds a pinch of positivity into your life. When things aren’t going according to your plans, giving will remind you about the goodness in the world that you are yet to experience. Rightly said, when you don’t see the good, be good.

2. Grants you forgiveness

It also acts as redemption for many, for those who are still guilty of a mistake you committed long back, giving and loving helps clean the plate. It is your chance to seek compassion, fix your mistakes, and never repeat them.

For times, when you thought there’s no turning back, turn towards giving – it will give you a fresh start.

3. Benefits the society

It acts as a small but important step to make the world a place where there’s no hatred, hurt, loneliness, and poverty. You can contribute to the betterment of this world, the situation, and the minds of people around you.

4. Makes you responsible

Giving makes you more mindful of how you spend your resources. If there’s a cause you relate to and desperately want to contribute irrespective of your own financial standing, you will learn to do some things in limited availability.

You realize that every moment is valuable, it’s a minute you can spend some time with people who care.

5. Giving inspires giving

Every time you give, you don’t just give a resource or an emotion, you share a thought. A thought that says kindness can do magic. People on the receiving end pay it forward with whatever little they can contribute. This cycle of giving eventually makes this world better, happier, and brighter.

6. Promotes good health

Yes, you read that right. Giving can also give you good health. There is a wide range of research that advocates for this. In fact, a study in 1999 led by Doug Oman of the University of California discovered that elderly who volunteer for organizations were 44% less likely to die in the next five years. Amazing, isn’t it?

7. Keeps you fulfilled

There’s so much that you can give – time, attention, friendship, or even money. But the best part about giving is that you never fall short of what you give. Whether or not you have enough, you are satisfied at all times. And of course, like the quotes we discussed above said – you receive what you give.  

Still wondering how it would feel and what you can contribute and bring to the world? 

Here are a few ‘giving quotes’ to light your way!
