…Generosity doesn’t have to do with outer things; it is inner…  It depends upon how we think.  It is a state of mind that really wants to help others through giving.…  It is the feeling of readiness to do whatever we can to help someone by giving him or her whatever they need. So, whether or not we actually have the opportunity to give or not is not so important.  What is important is our pure motivation.
