True Measure and Purpose of Giving

“The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.” ~Samuel Johnson Some people say there’s no such thing as a selfless act; that any time we do something to help another person, we get something in return, even if it’s just a warm fuzzy feeling.

Here is Your Prescription…, Larry James

On the hit TV show, "Elementary," Sherlock, after lots of banter back and forth with his shrink, his psychiatrist abruptly said, "Hour's up!" and handed him a prescription.
