generosity

The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first, they love the produce of the second.

John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

John F. Kennedy

In a time of domestic crisis men of good will and generosity should be able to unite regardless of party or politics.

John F. Kennedy
