Stoic Lemonade: How do you accept a gift?

The way in which you receive a gift can reveal more about your personality than you might ever wish to confess.

Gracious acceptance is an art – an art which most never bother to cultivate. We think that we have to learn how to give, but we forget about accepting things, which can be much harder than giving…. Accepting another person’s gift is allowing him to express his feelings for you.
