Law of Compensation

Ralph Waldo Emerson, in his essay, “Compensation,” wrote that each person is compensated in like manner for that which he or she has contributed.

In other words, you get what you give, you sow what you reap.

What you do in life will dictate how you will get compensated. Give love, and you will get love in return. Spread your wealth and get more wealth in return. Go the extra mile, and you’ll soon be rewarded.

On the other hand, if you don’t invest your time, effort, and energy, you can’t expect to receive your rewards.
