Living the Sufi Message #16

He who is looking for a reward is smaller than his reward; he who has renounced a thing has risen above it.

– (Bowl of Saki: Hazrat Inayat Khan) – 

When doing a kindness to others the first thing that must be considered is that it should be unselfish, and not for the sake of appreciation or a reward. He who does good and waits for a reward is a laborer of good; but he who does good and disregards it is the master of good.
– Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan

Volume III – The Art of Personality, Part III – Chapter III The Law of Reciprocity (para 2)
