Chapter 4, Page 2, Book 19


The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent  world in itself.

Henry Miller

One of the greatest gifts you can give to anyone is the gift of attention.

Jim Rohn

As far as I’m concerned, there is no such thing as too much love or attention for the people we care about.  Especially children.  More than gifts people need plenty of tender loving care. We should never have to buy things to show we care. 

Some people tend to think that giving gifts is a way to show love, but material things cannot make up for our personal time and attention.  
Every successful relationship is the same.  Love will always find a way. 

I always remember the people that gave up their time when I’ve needed it the most and I try to share my time with others too.  Sometime all they need is someone to be with, go shopping with , or even just to sit and chat.

Time is ticking away and if we don’t take the time to stop and look it’ll fly by before we know it.


As I grow older, I pay less attention to what people say.  I just watch what they do. The time we spend with others can never be replaced.

Andrew Carnegie

When you said ...........Some people tend to think that giving gifts is a way to show love, but material things cannot make up for our personal time and attention............ you stated a forgotten fact in many lives. BUT that has been true since the beginning of time. Yep personal time and attention. It is good when someone doesn't feel they must say, "Please pay attention."
Love from NC, we actually have snow this morning, of course it will not stick around.

That is true that the best gift we can sometimes give is the gift of our time. Quantity of time over quality of time especially for children is a valuable gift to impart to them.

I agree, someone's time - and undivided attention - are the greatest gifts we can bestow. Receive, even. I just wish I'd realized that when my mother was still living.
