To receive is much harder than to give

In letter from Henry Miller to Nin

It???s so much easier to be on the giving side. To receive is much
harder ??? one actually has to be more delicate, if I may say so. One
has to help people to be more generous. By receiving from others, by
letting them help you, you really aid them to become bigger, more
generous, more magnanimous. You do them a service.
