Giving until guilt goes away

Giving until guilt goes away: "It took me some time to catch up to the fact that, if seriously considered, the whole subject of giving called for the most invasive and uncomfortable of self-examinations. On top of it, talking about giving in the first place seems to run counter to our most fundamental instincts and to the implicit logic of self-effacement that distinguishes pure acts of giving - the kind that require no recognition or accolades, no rewards and no accruing of social capital - from their mongrel and self-interested counterparts."
