for someone who will never be able to repay you.
- John Wooden

what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.

Spread love everywhere you go.
Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.
- Mother Teresa
One can pay back the loan of gold,
but one dies forever in debt to those who are kind.

Pay It Forward.
Gift future generations in proportion to your gratitude.
The nature of life is that we pay forward
our biological creation and nurture.
Our parents gift us with life and nurture,
and we gift our children with life and nurture.
While this much is essential to continued human existence,
choose to take "pay it forward" farther - much farther.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
Each of us has been generously gifted by parents, teachers, mentors, and others we can never repay. So, in gratitude for what we have received, it is now our turn to generously gift the children, the up-and-coming, and the down-and-out -- with no expectation that they can ever repay us - and with the hope that they will, in turn, pay-forward to another generation.
TODAY, consider performing an act-of-kindness for someone who can never repay you.
