The qutation "If someone offers you a gift, and you decline to accept it, the other person still owns that gift. The same is true of insults and verbal attacks" was first said by [b]Buddha[/b].
When He was abused by a person, He first asked him with all serenity "What happens if you offer something to a person and the person does not accept it?" When he replied "it remains with me", Buddha told him with a smile "I don't accept your abuses."
But in today's motivational quotes of the day, the quotation is attributed to Steve Pavlina.
