I have somewhere met with the epitaph on a charitable man which has pleased me very much. I cannot recollect the words, but here is the sense of it: "What I spent I lost; what I possessed is left to others; what I gave away remains with me."
--Joseph Addison

Joseph Addison had the right idea. I wish the entire world shared this same sentiment. In the end, I believe it's the only way.
