Three Day Quote Challenge – Day 3

Bryce Courtenay
“Generosity overpowers greed.”

Bryce Courtenay

It was important to me that one quote be about generosity or service. I chose this because from the first time I read it, I thought that this is one of the unerring truths in the world. The people who serve and build up people or society succeed. Those who merely seek to gain for their own good may succeed in the short-term but at some level not in the long run.

Bryce Courtenay was an author from South Africa, who later lived in Australia. His most notable work is The Power of One. This quote is from an interview with Courtenay in Andrew Zuckerman’s book Wisdom.
