      "Another form of wealth is generosity: not only in the sense that when you're generous things come back (in other words the good things that go around come around), but also that the state of mind that comes with generosity is a large, wide-open state of mind. If you think about the needs of others and not just your own needs. And you see where you can help: there's a sense of self-worth that comes from the ability to have something to contribute to the well-being of others. And a generous mind is as I said wide-open: it's like living in a huge house rather than living in a narrow little garret. And again that sense of breadth of mind is something you can't buy."
