Give, and it will be given to you: A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your lap. For the measure you use will be the measure you receive.”
– Luke 6:38 NET
He gave it for his opinion that whoever could make two ears of corn, or two blades of grass, to grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do more essential service to his country, than the whole race of politicians put together.
That man may last, but never lives,
Who much receives, but nothing gives;
Whom none can love, whom none can thank,—
Creation’s blot, creation’s blank.
