Benefits are acceptable, while the receiver thinks he may return
them; but once exceeding that, hatred is given instead of thanks.
[Lat., Beneficia usque eo laeta sunt dum videntur exsolvi posse;
ubi multum antevenere pro gratia odium redditur.]
A benefit is estimated according to the mind of the giver.
[Lat., Eodem animo beneficium debetur, quo datur.]
He gives a benefit twice who gives quickly.
[Lat., Inopi beneficium bis dat, qui dat celeriter.]
Let him that hath done the good office conceal it; let him that
received it disclose it.
[Lat., Qui dedit beneficium taceat; narret; qui accepit.]
A benefit consists not in what is done or given, but in the
intention of the giver or doer.
[Lat., Beneficium non in eo quot fit aut datur consistit sed in
ipso dantis aut facientis animo.]
