Recently a friend said to me…
“When I was young I beat my chest about “giving back”; today I give anonymously.
I once voiced group opinion as my own; today my own is my own.
As a young man I learned WHAT to think; today I am more concerned with HOW.
As a young man I jogged, I went to the gym and I rode a bike. I still do those things.
As a young man I lived within my means; I still do that as well.”
I asked him to lend me some grocery money. He offered to plant me a garden.
And he showed me how to tighten the cable on my bicycle.
