  • Rouseau: A purely voluntary deed is certainly something I like doing. But when the recipient uses it as a claim on further favor and rewards me with hate if I refuse, when he insists on my being his perpetual benefactor just because I initially took pleasure in helping him, then charity becomes burdensome and pleasure vanishes. There is a kind of contract, indeed the most sacred of contracts, between the benefactor and the recipient. These are not explicit conditions but they are the natural consequence of the relationship.
