Are We Givers or Are We Takers?

As I sit in my kitchen typing on my expensive laptop from the United States, I lookover my right shoulder at our dinner; a big cauldron of boiling corn over a fire I hadbuilt. The juxtaposition of these two items made me think. A previous discussion Ihad with a friend, who is currently attending college, my alternative, sparked athought. What am I doing here?

I’m reading a book by a man named Adam Grant, an esteemed professor at the Wharton Business School of University of Pennsylvania, called Give and Take. In this book, Professor Grant defines a Giver as a rare breed of people who contribute to others without expecting anything in return
