Receiving love and compassion

I love to read quotes about the value of giving and receiving. It’s easy to find quotes about the importance of giving, but not so easy to find a quote about the art of receiving. Here are a few of my favorites. If you know of any, let me know. Leave a comment.

I sent out a tweet recently of this first one.

It’s really important to be able to receive love and receive compassion. It is as important as being able to give it.  ~Pema Chodron

Get in the habit of receiving the benefits of the things you do.   ~ Elaine St. James

And what desert greater shall there be, than that which lies in the courage and the confidence, nay the charity, of receiving? ~ Kahlil Gibran

The difference between a helping hand and an outstretched palm is a twist of the wrist. ~ Laurence Leamer
