    Smile It is more blessed to give than to receive.

    It is more blessed to give than to receive.
    People who give are more blessed than those who receive.


    I assume the second makes more sense than the first in that only people can be blessed as opposed to "it." What do you think? Thanks.

    "It" does not refer to a person. It refers to "the action of a person"

    This sentence is a well known one. It is not one that should or would be changed. It is fine as it is written.
