Gifts dissolve rocks.
Gifts make their way through stone walls.
He that parts with his property before his death prepares himself for much suffering.
What we share with another ceases to be our own.
A gift blinds the wise and perverts the words of the righteous.
Money is good for bribing yourself through the inconveniences of life.
Nothing is so strongly fortified that it cannot be taken by money.
To receive gifts is to lose freedom.
What gift has providence bestowed on man that is so dear to him as his children?
A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer.
One rose says more than the dozen
Rich gifts wax poor when givers prove unkind.
