It’s a human trait to crave acknowledgement. However this quote by Aesop reminds me that even if we don’t receive a thank you, that doesn’t mean our giving or nice deed goes unnoticed or is not appreciated. Of course, being acknowledged always feels good and brightens our day. But to feel slighted when we give and don’t receive back is a fault of our human ego. Give to just give with any expectations of receiving can warm our hearts to the fullest.
