I was just flipping through my journals and came across this quote by Marcus Aurelius. I think it embodies the spirit of everyone who participates at readergirlz:

"Some people when they do a favor are always looking for a chance to call it in. And some aren't, but they're still aware of it-still regard it as a debt. But others don't even do that. They're like a vine that produces grapes without looking for anything in return.
A horse at the end of a race.
A dog when the hunt is over.
A bee with it's honey stored.
And a human being after helping others."

Read, reflect, and reach out.
