That's what I consider true generosity: You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing.
Did you ever stop to think that a dog is the only animal that doesn't have to work for a living? A hen has to lay eggs, a cow has to give milk, and a canary has to sing. But a dog makes his living by giving you nothing but love.

How to Win Friends & Influence People
Generosity is the most natural outward expression of an inner attitude of compassion and loving-kindness.
It's best to give while your hand is still warm.

Let us forget with generosity those who cannot love us.
Generosity is the accompaniment of high birth; pity and gratitude are its attendants
Generosity is nothing else than a craze to possess. All which I abandon, all which I give, I enjoy in a higher manner through the fact that I give it away. To give is to enjoy possessively the object which one gives
Generosity is not giving me that which I need more than you do, but it is giving me that which you need more than I do
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need
Many men have been capable of doing a wise thing, more a cunning thing, but very few a generous thing
