On Receiving

And you receivers – and you are all receivers – assume no weightof gratitude, lest you lay a yoke upon yourself and upon him who gives.

Rather rise together with the giver on his gifts as wings;

For to be overmindful of your debt, is to doubt the generosity who has the free-hearted earth for mother, and God for father.

– Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
