a reward is given as a token of gratitude for the work done and out of a free will, while not expecting anything in return;
while a bribe is taken because the giver is forced to do so if he expects something in return; it promises a politician money for their own use in exchange for improper considerations; certainly, lobbying tells a politician what you want, with the understanding that you’ll support future campaigns if pleased ; a thin distinction; in so, there is a flat-line that shows death; if one is unconsciously asleep or alive; and in the same way there is a thin red line between an elegy and a eulogy; an autobiography and a memoir; between love and charity; between honor and worship…
Can you define that line?
