Gifts, when trivially bestowed, offend great desires.

I realized I had placed this aphorism in a comment I made over at the Distributist Review.

Hi, I'm a friend of Harry Rodas. A while back I read this post. I was hoping to read it again, but can't seem to find it now. Do you have a link to your comment in the Distributist Review I could follow? Thank you!

Hi Olivia,

I haven't found the original comment I made over at the Distributist Review, but I did happen to include essentially the same comment in my short essay on Subsidiarity and First Things wherein I investigate the idea that some things are not as expedient as we sometimes think.
