Expect Nothing, Give Everything!

Love is not selective, and charity knows no bounds. Thus if I expect anything in return for charity except the happiness of the recipient then it is not charity. There is no bookkeeping, no quid pro quo, no deals, interests, bargaining or ulterior motives; charity gives to those who do not deserve and expects nothing in return;
It is the love God has for us, and the love we have for little children, of whom we expect nothing but from whom we would give everything. -Hugh Nibley

Both Hands

Real disciples withstand the fiery darts of the adversary by holding aloft the quenching shield of faith with one hand, while holding to the iron rod with the other. There should be no mistaking; it will take both hands!

Neal A. Maxwell

In conference report Apr. 1987, 87 or Ensign May 1987, 70

See: Ephesians 6:16, 1 Nephi 15:24, D&C 27:17.
