"We make a living by what we get, but we get a life by what we give." Winston Churchill

What is most rare thing these days? 

We have heard many stories from our elders, about how people helped each other in old times - without any expectation or reward. How selfless were those days... yet people were satisfied and happier much with their simpler lives. And, TODAY... If anyone helps someone, first - the person helping puts his/her demands against the one being helped. Our values have descended from moderate living and helping others without any interests to mere, material and personal interests. Our Elders enjoyed "ALTRUISM" and that's quite rare nowadays.

You see the picture above... it says all about it. Selflessness is all about giving, even if you have nothing..Just like these flowers with faded freshness - still ready to give their remaining pleasant odour. 

If you still have such people around you... Learn to "value" them rather than judging them for their intentions, before their disappearance.

 

"Altruism is innate, but it's not instinctual. Everybody's wired for it, but a switch has to be flipped." David Rakoff

So, just flip the switch to feel the real happiness within...
