Gift Quotes

Give whatever you are doing and whoever you are with the gift of your attention.

Jim Rohn

A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer.


Let him who desires to see others happy, make haste to give while his gift can be enjoyed, and remember that every moment of delay takes away something from the value of his benefaction.

Samuel Johnson

It is a strange trade that of advocacy. Your intellect, your highest heavenly gift is hung up in the shop window like a loaded pistol for sale.

Thomas Carlyle

God gives us intelligence to uncover the wonders of nature. Without the gift, nothing is possible.

James Clavell

Just as a puppy can be more of a challenge than a gift, so too can the holidays.

John Clayton

Love the giver more than the gift.

Brigham Young

Every great man is always being helped by everybody; for his gift is to get good out of all things and all persons.

John Ruskin

Anne Morrow Lindbergh

The great gift of the southern lands to our civilisation is the simple right to sit at an outside cafe table and look at things.

Anthony Burgess

Apology is a lovely perfume; it can transform the clumsiest moment into a gracious gift.

Margaret Lee Runbeck

The limitless loving devotion to God, and the gift God makes of Himself to you, are the highest elevation of which the heart is capable; it is the highest degree of prayer. The souls that have reached this point are truly the heart of the Church.

Edith Stein

The capacity for self-deception, rarely acknowledged or understood by those who offer us supernatural answers to our problems, is huge: as easy as it is to make a mediums cold-reading statements fit our own situation and come to believe that he must have some paranormal insight, it is hardly any more difficult for a would-be psychic with an average ego, upon hearing frequently positive feedback, to believe over time that he must be blessed with a special gift. Its harder to think youre doing it for real when youre tossing tambourines in the dark or have ready-made ectoplasm stuffed into your mouth or bottom.

Derren Victor Brown

Costly grace is the gospel which must be sought again and again, the gift which must be asked for, the door at which a man must knock. Such grace is costly because it calls us to follow, and it is grace because it calls us to follow Jesus Christ. It is costly because it costs a man his life, and it is grace because it gives a man the only true life. It is costly because it condemns sin, and grace because it justifies the sinner.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.
