CHARITY QUOTATIONS
“The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.”

Helen Keller

“Generosity consists not the sum given, but the manner in which it is bestowed.”

Mahatma Gandhi

“Charity is the root of all good works.”

Saint Augustine

“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”

John Bunyan

“Work and live to serve others, leave the world a little better than you found it.”

David Sarnoff

“As we work to create light for others, we naturally light our own way.”

Mary Anne Radmacher

“Be good for something while you live and it is in your power.”

Marcus Aurelius

“In necessary things, unity; in disputed things, liberty; in all things, charity.”

Richard Baxter

“Charity and love are the same—with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead.”

Mother Teresa

“Service is a smile. It is an acknowledging wave, a reaching handshake, a friendly wink, and a warm hug. It's these simple acts that matter most, because the greatest service to a human soul has always been the kindness of recognition.”

Richelle E. Goodrich

“While we do our good works let us not forget that the real solution lies in a world in which charity will have become unnecessary.”

Chinua Achebe

“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”

There is so much god one person can do. I figured, if I woke up this morning, there must be a live to improve - even if it is only my own. I had a stroke and was laid off from my work- now I run Empty Bowl Pet Food Pantry Disaster Services that gave $665,000 of product to struggling families in Arizona!

It seems the 20th and 21st century has highlighted the need for forgiveness. It is a necessary component in moving on without deepening the wounds that were inflicted.

Greed is the plague of the 21st century. Giving and sharing with others expands who we are. Having more is never having enough. Share what you have and give. Giving expands us. Having are the chains binding us from merging with our true selves.

Charity begins from home and a good friend is cheaper than therapy.

"your conscience teaches your mind how to think. your heart how to feel. your soul how to obey and most importantly your body how to perform extraordinary acts of charity and kindness toward your fellow man."

"misplaced charity destroys all incentive, incentive destroys all misplaced charity." -joseph p.martino

After visiting Australia and New Zealand a few years ago, I want to do something for these people who have gone through so many natural disasters: floods, earthquakes, etc. The people from these two countries were very polite and courteous of American tourists. I believe what goes around comes around. I want to make a financial donation to the people of Queensland, Australia and Christchurch, New Zealand. Let's give a helping hand to our good friends "Downunder"!
