Giving more than you take

It's a matter of givin' more to this world than you take away from it. So when you die you don't owe it anything. It's bein' able to love when you want to hate- to forgive them that work against you- to tell the truth even when it hurts- to share your bread no matter how hungry you are yourself. Dyin' comes easy when you know you've done all these things right.
The Learning Tree by Gordon Parks


  1. I love this photo. It reminds me how I want to put up the birdhouse my daughter built in one of her classes. Thanks for sharing. Have a great day.

  2. I have a birdhouse like this, but my sister painted it up real fancy. I haven't decided how I'm going to hang it up, yet.

  3. Gordon Parks was an incredible man. Vary nice pairing of words and photo. Thanks
