 I like this quote because it makes the right thing to do very clear. Don't let your actions be clouded by your feelings. Do the right thing anyway.  
"Take the hard feelings away, and this is the right thing to do. Put the feelings back and it hurts like hell, but the right thing to do hasn’t changed." Carolyn Hax

You cannot truly see unless you take in the world without assumptions

"My son once came up to me on a playground and said, "The little black girl just threw something at me!" I looked over at the only African American girl on the playground, who was wearing a green T-shirt, and my son said indignantly, "Not the GREEN girl, the BLACK girl!" pointing at a small blonde child in a black shirt." Sometimes, their assumptions are not ours..." -Catken1

True generosity.

Sharing 101
"That’s what I consider true generosity: You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing." — Simone de Beauvoir
