Quote #36, My Thoughts and YOUR thoughts

I love Quotes. I love them because they make me think. What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?

Here goes blog quote #36....

"The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches, but to reveal to him, his own."

-Benjamin Disraeli-

Here is a quote that we all may interpret differently. I believe Disraeli is not saying don't share your riches. In addition to sharing yours, sometimes its a gift to point out to others what they have and how fortunate they are?

Picture the person who is always complaining for no reason at all. They have their health,. They have wealth and a nice family. Yet, they are always looking at others, jealously. Always trying to find the "next best thing". By opening these peoples eyes to all the blessings they do have.. is as good as a thing you can do for them.

That's my view.....WHAT SAY YOU?
