If you get, give; if you learn, teach. (Maya Angelou, late American poet)
Poets have a way of putting profound truths into simple statements. Angelou’s comments speak volumes of worthy counsel in just eight words. Many people are focused on getting, accumulating possessions for a sense of security. They would benefit greatly—as would others—if they’d learn to give. Learners discover real joy when they share their learning.
One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty (Proverbs 11:24).
