Bigger than we think

Every life is.

‘Thus to speak of the increase of the gift is to speak of something simultaneously material, social, and spiritual.’*

When we give our lives to others we subversively change what others may commoditise – our usefulness – into a gift impossible to put a price on.

(*From James Carse’s Finite and Infinite Games.)
