Example translation

"Plus nous sommes généreux, plus les gens nous le rendront.

The more generous we are, the more people will give it back to us."

A better English translation would be:

The more generous we are, the more people will give back to us.

The "it" should be absent because we are speaking in general terms. The word "it" in English in this sentence implies a previously mentioned specific thing which is absent in this case.
