“Generosity is not a loan to repay or a debt to settle. It’s a gift to appreciate.”

Adam Grant, American organizational psychologist and bestselling author

Adam Grant’s book, Give and Take, is one of my favorites. If you have yet to read it, today’s quote could be one of the top nuggets to summarize its wisdom.

Through his extensive research of givers, takers, and matchers, it’s the givers of the world who seem to lead the most richly rewarding lives.

Perhaps the best way to show our appreciation of the generosity of others is simply to acknowledge it.


I hope you will take Adam’s advice and give the generous people in your life your sincere appreciation for their many gifts.
