Gift giving is one of the oldest forms of human interaction. It is a behaviour all cultures and all classes share.
Teachers believe they have a gift for giving; it drives them with the same irrepressible drive that drives others to create a work of art or a market or a building.
If only Queen Elizabeth II had the intellectual, political and linguistic skills of Queen Elizabeth I, many people would support giving her some of the powers of an elected president.
When I took over as president, I studied the Constitution, and the more I studied it, the more I realised that it does not prevent the president of India from giving the nation a vision. So when I went and presented this vision in Parliament and in legislative assemblies; everyone welcomed it, irrespective of party affiliations.
My main focus is playing football and giving it all I got. I'm trying to go out there and make plays and help my team win.
Right now, I have to admit, that I'm more interested in giving people a little bit of hope and goodness.
I wanted to build a tool for my generation: people 20 to 40 who don't want to spend time balancing a checkbook or checking multiple financial institutions' websites. Mint does just that, giving comprehensive, quick insights into a user's finances from their computer, mobile phone and/or tablet.
Arsenal have a history of bringing through youngsters, giving them opportunities, and turning them into world-class players.
I came from a rugby school and rugby nation, but I fancied giving football a go, and luckily, it paid off.
I have a big problem with people who glamorize dumbness and demonize education and intellect. And I'm giving a pretty good description of Sarah Palin right now.
