Jeremy Taylor
My goal is to change perception about giving money for charity. A lot of people still think that this is only for the rich. I used to think like this, but this isn’t true. Begin by donating the smallest amount you can afford. You’ll soon realize how easy it is to support worthy causes.
Lee Min-ho
I’ve been doing charity work since I’m 20 years old, and now I want to help kids.

Riches without charity are nothing worth. They are a blessing only to him who makes them a blessing to others.
Henry Fielding
Men do what is called a good action, as some piece of courage or charity, much as they would pay a fine in expiation of daily non-appearance on parade. Their works are done as an apology or extenuation of their living in the world. I do not wish to expiate, but to live. My life is not an apology, but a life.

not try to find out whether that charity is a fraud or not.

Maria Edgeworth
Prejudice is the conjuror of imaginary wrongs, strangling truth, over-powering reason, making strong people weak, and weak people weaker. God gave us the large-hearted charity which “beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things,” which “thinketh no evil!”
John Ross Macduff

In giving alms, let us rather look at the needs of the poor than his claim to your charity.
Jean Antoine Petit-Senn
To give money to a sufferer is only a come-off. It is only a postponement of the real payment, a bribe paid for silence, a creditsystem in which a paper promise to pay answers for the time instead of liquidation. We owe to man higher succors than food and fire. We owe to man.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The champion’s management says let’s do this for real, for charity. Rocky says no but decides to be true to himself even though he’s going to be berated by everyone. Just to compete, not to win.

Satisfy your demand for reason but always remember that charity is beyond reason, and God can be known through charity.
Flannery O’Connor

Leila Janah
I’m a global ambassador for the World Wildlife Fund and United for Wildlife and I am also a Unicef UK ambassador. It’s important to me to support charities. I never want to take my wealth for granted.

Sathya Sai Baba
Careless their merits or their faults to scan, His pity gave ere charity began. Thus to relieve the wretched was his pride, And even his failings lean’d to Virtue’s side.

Friedrich Nietzsche
All knowledge is sterile which does not lead to action and end in charity.
Desire-Joseph Mercier
One applauds the industry of professional philanthropy. But it has its dangers. After a while the private heart begins to harden. We fling letters into the wastebasket, are abrupt to telephoned solicitations. Charity withers in the incessant gale.
Phyllis McGinley
The thing about all these charities is that who sees where the money goes? I don’t and you don’t. For all I know, the president of Make a Wish just used all the money to buy himself a mansion and a yacht. That’s why I keep all of my money for myself, at least then I know I’m doing good for at least one person for sure.
Zach Braff
It’s the Muslims who are dragging the rest of the world with them, in their genocidal dreams of annihilating goodness, creativity, production, inventiveness, benevolence, charity, medicine, technology, and all of the gifts of the Jews. Our goodness makes them ill.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
The charity that is a trifle to us can be precious to others.

Chris Soules
I advise wannabe singers to form a band, practise in your garage if you have to, but do as many charity or open mic shows as possible to get experience. I sang for seven years before getting a record deal, and I was already loving what I was doing. I just got lucky and got discovered.
Bonnie Tyler
But charity is a very complicated thing. Its important to find an area where you can really help and you can feel the results. Charity is not like feeding pigeons in the square. It is a process that requires professional management.
Roman Abramovich
I wasn’t the typical pageant girl – I was a little more nerdy, and they gave me a voice. I created the Queen of the Universe pageant, which is charity-based, to benefit UNESCO. For me, the most important thing is that contestants have a charity-based platform or charity ambition.
Joyce Giraud
I’m good at clearing things out. If I haven’t worn something for a while, I’ll give it away to charity.
Nicola Adams
Religion has become to many merely a means of doing a little charity work, just to amuse them after a hard day’s labour – they get five minutes religion to amuse them. This is the danger with the liberal thought.
Swami Vivekananda
The white savior supports brutal policies in the morning, founds charities in the afternoon, and receives awards in the evening.
Teju Cole
I have charity work that I do. I started my own charity, the Friends of the Prostate, and I’m also working on awareness of the deviated septum. I do this because not many people are interested in it. There’s also Save the Funnel-web – they’re dying out.
Barry Humphries

What do we mean by setting a man free? You cannot free a man who dwells in a desert and is an unfeeling brute.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I knew a homeless guy who’d give all the copper coins that people gave him to charity. So I think there’s something that makes us want to give. For me, it’s quite a selfish luxury: you feel enlivened, deepened and self-nurtured by generosity.
Tamsin Greig
The prayers you perform, the duties you do, the charity and love you give is equal to just one drop. But if you use that one drop, continue to do your duty, and keep digging within, then the spring of Allah’s grace and His qualities will flow in abundance.

Matt Barnes
I really am glad that the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children has had the courage to stand up and say that children should not be hit under any circumstances. I am a committed supporter of this campaigning charity for children.

My father used to say, ‘You can spend a lot of time making money. The tough time comes when you have to give it away properly.’ How to give something back, that’s the tough part in life.

The Gospel purifies and renews, it bears fruit, wherever the community of believers hears it and receives God’s grace in truth and charity. This is my confidence, this is my joy.
Pope Benedict XVI
Yes, the Bible should be taught in our schools because it is necessary to understand the Bible if we are to truly understand our own culture and how it came to be. The Bible has influenced every part of western culture from our art, music, and history, to our sense of fairness, charity, and business.
Joel Osteen
To create a new business that makes money, and more significantly, employs others, and more significantly, gives a product to a customer that improves their life, is our greatest challenge, our greatest opportunity, and the greatest gift, far greater than any charity that we can give our fellow person.

Not what we give, but what we share, for the gift without the giver is bare.
James Russell Lowell
I have always enjoyed do-it-yourself projects, .. Being in a position to actually help design and bring tools to market is an incredible opportunity. Being able to fund charities as a result is phenomenal.

charity is a calm, severe duty; it must be intellectual, to be advantageous. It is a strange mistake that it should ever be considered a merit; its fulfillment is only what we owe to each other, and is a debt never paid to its full extent.
Letitia Elizabeth Landon
A man should fear when he only enjoys what good he does publicly. Is it not the publicity rather than the charity he loves? Is it not vanity, rather than benevolence, that gives such charities?
Henry Ward Beecher
I am not Superwoman. The reality of my daily life is that I’m juggling a lot of balls in the air trying to be a good wife and mother, trying to be the prime-ministerial consort at home and abroad, barrister and charity worker, and sometimes one of the balls gets dropped.
Cherie Blair
Most disability charity hinges on that notion – that you need to send your money in quick before all these poor, pitiful people die. Peddling pity brings in the bucks, yo.

A society that has more justice is a society that needs less charity.

Russell Simmons
Your talent is God’s gift to you. What you do with it is your gift back to God.

Jason McCourty
The principle of compassion is that which converts disillusionment into a participatory companionship. This is the basic love, the charity, that turns a critic into a living human being who has something to give to – as well as to demand of – the world.
Joseph Campbell
You find people ready enough to do the Samaritan, without the oil and twopence.
Sydney Smith
We can never establish with certainty what part of our relations with others is the result of our emotions – love, antipathy, charity, or malice – and what part is predetermined by the constant power play among individuals.
Milan Kundera
Charity work is very important to me and gives me an opportunity to give back to my community. I’ve always been a big supporter of many different charities, have donated millions of dollars to them, and it just feels great to do and be able to help others, especially children.
Richard MacDonald
Be not frightened at the hard words “imposition,” “imposture;” give and ask no questions. Cast thy bread upon the waters. Some have, unawares, entertained angels.
Charles Lamb
Capital formation is the greatest charity of all.
F. A. Harper
There is no truer cause of unhappiness amongst men than, where naturally expecting charity and benevolence, they receive harm and vexation.
Francois Rabelais
There are a lot worse things you can do with all your bucks than giving them to even a mediocre mutual fund – such as, for example, giving them to a mediocre hedge fund. If supporting the lifestyle of a mediocre fund manager is your favorite charity, who am I to stop you?
Gary Weiss
I started as a stand-up comedian at charity shows in Mumbai.
Johnny Lever
Every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven.
Henry Ward Beecher
The charity work is just a part of what I do. Like… I make time to clean my house, to care for my pets, to visit my extended family, because those things are important to me. Same with helping others.
Lori Foster
Some indeed have tears naturally, when the higher motion of the soul makes itself felt in the lower, or because God our Lord, seeing that it would be good for them, allows them to melt into tears. But this does not mean that they have greater charity or that they are more effective than others who enjoy no tears.
Saint Ignatius
I cannot tell and I shall never know how many words of mine might have given birth to cruelty in place of love and kindness and charity.
Clarence Darrow
The desire of power in excess caused the angels to fall; the desire of knowledge in excess caused man to fall: but in charity there is no excess; neither can angel nor man come in danger by it.
Francis Bacon
The big thing that Moneypenny changed was the amount of charity work that I was able to be involved with.
Samantha Bond
After Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, the belief in decent housing as a political right or social obligation was supplanted in the U.S. by the notion that suitable shelter should be an act of charity.
Martin Filler
The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others.
Mitch Albom
You look at these kids…thousands and thousands of kids…and you stop and think, how can you not care?
Curtis R. Welling
Where has the Scripture made merit the rule or measure of charity?.
William Law
Charity is the only lubricant that keeps the axle of the world creaking.
Austin O’Malley
Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I created my own charity called My Peak Challenge. We’ve been able to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds. It’s helping change people’s lives, and I’ve had lots of wonderful letters about it.
Sam Heughan
Give a beggar a dime and he’ll bless you. Give him a dollar and he’ll curse you for withholding the rest of your fortune. Poverty is a bag with a hole at the bottom.
Anzia Yezierska
While to the claims of charity a man may yield and yet be free, to the claims of conformity no man may yield and remain free at all.
Oscar Wilde
The man who leaves money to charity in his will is only giving away what no longer belongs to him
Voltaire
I do as much charity work as I can and that my family life will allow. I do believe charity begins at home and the more we focus on our families, the better they will be.
Jamie Lee Curtis
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.
Aristotle
The test of a civilization is in the way that it cares for its helpless members
Pearl S. Buck
Charity degrades those who receive it and hardens those who dispense it.
George Sand
We went around and looked and talked to a lot of foundations with those charities and decided upon the Childrens Hospital. They had a golf tournament at the time, but it was a small event that didnt raise a significant amount of money.
Tom Kite
The game needs to be funded by sponsors, by members, by broadcasters. There needs to be a commercial relationship between the FFA and the people who supply the money so it is a natural alliance. Sport is not a charity.
Frank Lowy
I don’t feel sure about doing good in any way now; everything seems like going on a mission to a people whose language I don’t know.
George Eliot
There is no cause half so sacred as the cause of the people. There is no idea so uplifting as the idea of the service of humanity.
Woodrow Wilson
Deepen you knowledge of Jesus which ends loneliness, overcomes sadness and uncertainty, gives real meaning to life, curbs passions, exalts ideals, expands energies in charity, brings light into decisive choices. Let Christ be for you the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Pope John Paul II
Doing nothing for others is the undoing of ourselves.
Horace Mann
The miracle is this – the more you give, the more you have.
Leonard Nimoy
I’m very passionate about charity… Performing is my passion. But it’s not gonna change the world. That’s why I give back.
Demi Lovato
Love, like the opening of the heavens to the Saints, shows for a moment, even to the dullest man, the possibilities of the human race. He has faith, hope, and charity for another being, perhaps but a creation of his imagination: still it is a great advance for a man to be profoundly loving even in his imaginations.
Arthur Helps
Beauty grows in you to the extent that love grows, because charity itself is the soul’s beauty.
Saint Augustine
Charity should be self-sustainable. That is, it should create more wealth rather than perpetuating the cycle of poverty and dependence. In this sense, the best form of charity would be providing quality education for children and more importantly, building a good character in them.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
My poor are my best patients. God pays for them.
Herman Boerhaave
One of the things that I encourage for anybody who is interested in their own charity or philanthropy is to start from where you are and what has mattered to you.
Oprah Winfrey
God bless thee; and put meekness in thy breast, Love, charity, obedience, and true duty!
William Shakespeare
How come you like Josh so much anyway? All he does is sit around drinking overpriced coffee and bitching about how awful things are” “He cares about the world.” “If he cared about the world, he’d donate the ten thousand dollars he must spend on coffee every year to charity. That would be doing something.
Elizabeth Scott
Reaching into someone else’s pocket to assist one’s fellow man hardly qualifies as charity.
Walter E. Williams
When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.
Maya Angelou
…the whole universe is through and through the playing of love in every shade of the word’s use, from animal lust to divine charity.
Alan Watts

I have a lot of charity work I’m into right now, and selling my Chakalates – supporting that whole effort.
Chaka Khan
Charity does not like arithmetic; selfishness worships it.
Mason Cooley
To bring the best human qualities to anything like perfection, to fill them with the sweet juices of courtesy and charity, prosperity, or, at all events, a moderate amount of it, is required,–just as sunshine is needed for the ripening of peaches and apricots.
Alexander Smith
What is superfluous to your poor estate, distribute. This is distributive charity: a virtue so sacred that crimes against it are the forerunner of inevitable doom.
Vincent McNabb
I think there is an immense shortage of Christian charity among so-called Christians.
Harry S. Truman
I believe in Christian charity, but I don’t believe in Christian tolerance… When we become so tolerate that we lead people into mental fog and spiritual darkness, we are not acting like Christians; we are acting like cowards!
Aiden Wilson Tozer
A large part of altruism, even when it is perfectly honest, is grounded upon the fact that it is uncomfortable to have unhappy people about one.
H. L. Mencken
Our true acquisitions lie only in our charities – we gain only as we give.
William Gilmore Simms
Hooray for differences! Without them, there would be no harmony. In principles, great clarity. In practices, great charity.
Chieko N. Okazaki
The qualities most needed are charity and tolerance, not some form of fanatical faith such as is offered to us by the various rampant isms
Bertrand Russell
Charity is the sweet and holy bond which links the soul with its Creator: it binds God with man and man with God.
St. Catherine of Siena
Charity is that rational and constant affection which makes us sacrifice ourselves to the human race, as if we were united with it, so as to form one individual, partaking equally in its adversity and prosperity.
Confucius
There are people in need of help. Charity is one of the nobler human motivations. The act of reaching into one’s own pockets to help a fellow man in need is praiseworthy and laudable. Reaching into someone else’s pocket is despicable and worthy of condemnation.
Walter E. Williams
I came from a wealthy family. I made over my share of the estate to various charities.
Abbe Pierre
Truth is the root of all the charities.
Orville Dewey
Test everything, try everything, and then believe it, and if you find it for the good of many, give it to all.
Swami Vivekananda
I wanted to become a teacher, like my mother, or a charity worker. But my mom says that when I was younger, I told her, ‘People are going to know me,’ so I guess I always had that idea.
Doutzen Kroes
Charity cures heartaches.
Nachman of Breslov
All wages are based primarily on productive power. Anything else would be charity.
Elbert Hubbard
What good being object of charity? Give away, ne’er turn to ask in return, Should there be the wealth treasured in thy heart.
Swami Vivekananda
When those who give charity do so without any sense of self-satisfaction and without any thought of reward, even a small gift is great. When those who aid others calculate their own sacrifice and demand gratitude and recompense, even a great gift is small.
Zicheng Hong
A charitable man is like an apple tree-he gives his fruit and is silent; the philanthropist is like the successful hen.
Austin O’Malley
I’ll tell thee what it says; it calls me villain, a treacherous husband, a cruel father, a false brother; one lost to nature and her charities; or to say all in one short word, it calls me – Gamester.
George Edward Moore
Some people understand the charity of our Lord and are saved by it; others, relying on this mercy and kindness, continue in their sins, thinking that it may be theirs whenever they wish. But this is not so, for then they are too late and are taken in their sins before they expect it, and so damn themselves.
Walter Hilton
I will say that when I retire, I will probably do something to help others. I don’t know know what it will be… probably I’ll get involved in some charity.
Vanna White
Even as in the blessed in heaven there will be most perfect charity, so in the damned there will be the most perfect hate. Wherefore as the saints will rejoice in all goods, so will the damned grieve for all goods. Consequently the sight of the happiness of the saints will give them very great pain.
Thomas Aquinas
I am blessed beyond the realms of blessedness, and easily the greatest pleasure is giving it away
Joanna Lumley
Physical deformity, calls forth our charity. But the infinite misfortune of moral deformity calls forth nothing but hatred and vengeance.
Clarence Darrow
We cannot better assure our eternal happiness than by living and dying in the service of the poor, in the arms of Providence, and with genuine renouncement of ourselves in order to follow Jesus Christ.
Vincent de Paul
Defer not charities till death; for certainly, if a man weigh it rightly, he that doth so is rather liberal of another man’s than of his own.
Francis Bacon
A lot of people think the Breakfast for Children program is charity. But what does it do? It takes the people from a stage to another stage. Any program that’s revolutionary is an advancing program. Revolution is change.
Fred Hampton
Wherever a man turns he can find someone who needs him.
Albert Schweitzer
That charity is bad which takes from independence its proper pride, from mendicity its salutary shame.
Robert Southey

Blaise Pascal
No vicarious charity can substitute for justice which is due as an obligation and is wrongfully denied.

I would like to do all kinds of things: photography and art and designing; I want to help do charity things for animals and things like that.
Georgia May Jagger

Mo Farah
Charity fundraisers are nothing new to me. In the past, I have taken part in ski races for hospitals, walks for breast cancer, and long distance bike rides for geriatric care.
David Sax
I feel like I understand Trump’s character better than the average person now, having seen all of these little interactions with charity. I wanted to keep doing something that’s like that, and not just doing pure politics. So my piece of the Trump empire is the golf courses, Mar-a-Lago, and the winery.
David Fahrenthold
It is with charity as with money–the more we stand in need of it, the less we have to give away.
Christian Nestell Bovee
Justice comes before charity.
Pope John XXIII
Let us have love and more love; a love that melts all opposition, a love that conquers all foes, a love that sweeps away all barriers, a love that aboundeth in charity, a large-heartedness, tolerance, forgiveness and noble striving, a love that triumphs over all obstacles.
Abdu’l-BahГЎ
The returns from investing in poor people are just as great as the returns from investing in the business world… and have even more meaning
Bill Gates
In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it’s wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices.
Elizabeth Gilbert
The highest flights of charity, devotion, trust, patience, bravery to which the wings of human nature have spread themselves, have been flown for religious ideals.

One must be poor to know the luxury of giving!
George Eliot

Xavier Becerra
The doctrines contained in the Bible will lift to a superior condition all who observe them; they will impart to them knowledge, wisdom, charity, fill them with compassion and cause them to feel after the wants of those who are in distress.
Brigham Young
The race of mankind would perish did they cease to aid each other. We cannot exist without mutual help. All therefore that need aid have a right to ask it from their fellow-men; and no one who has the power of granting can refuse it without guilt.
Walter Scott
Never pretend to have money except when you are in straits. The poor man who pretends to have a bank account betters his credit and takes no risk. But the prosperous individual who counts his money in the street, forthwith will be invited to attend a charity bazaar.
George Ade
Socially prominent people are very fond of disease, because it gives them a chance to have these really elaborate charity functions, and the newspaper headlines say ‘EVENING IN PARIS BALL RAISES MONEY TO FIGHT GOUT’ instead of ‘RICH PEOPLE AMUSE THEMSELVES’.
Dave Barry
I think part of the problem with charity is that it tends to make us view people as helpless victims. I think in the future, we’ll look back on charity in the same way that we look back on colonialism today: as a very paternalistic system that doesn’t fully recognise the full spectrum of humanity.
Leila Janah
It is one of the great acts of American generosity and charity, what we are doing for these unaccompanied kids who are smuggled into our country or come across illegally.
Alex Azar
Because men believe not in Providence, therefore they do so greedily scrape and hoard. They do not believe in any reward for charity, therefore they will part with nothing.
Isaac Barrow
It’s almost charity work, what people have done, turning other people on to my music.
John Mayer
It’s in vogue to have a cause and give money in charity. But to actually speak up and say something like, I’m pissed about this” – that doesn’t seem to be very popular unless you’re writing a blog or tweeting.
Conor Oberst
Like charity, I believe glamour should begin at home.
Loretta Young
I beg people not to accept the seasonal ritual of well-timed charity on Christmas Eve. It’s blasphemy.
Jonathan Kozol
If we put our trust in the common sense of common men and ‘with malice toward none and charity for all’ go forward on the great adventure of making political, economic and social democracy a practical reality, we shall not fail.
Henry A. Wallace
To succeed you have to believe in something with such a passion that it becomes a reality.
Anita Roddick
The able bodied poor don’t want or need charity…. All they need is financial capital.
Muhammad Yunus
I have a festival called Shaggy and Friends, which is a charity event to raise funds for a hospital.
Shaggy
We may not substitute charity for godliness; but there is room for the Divine love in the heart which has been touched by the human.
William Morley Punshon
I’m obviously very involved with my own charity and foundation that I work with. Obviously, I’m very passionate about that.
David Nail
Charity is that with which no man is lost, and without which no man is saved.
Robert Bellarmine
It’s totally outrageous, … for someone to take these domain names and then solicit funds, run them through what looks like a legitimate charity using pictures and other hurricane victims, when in reality that money was running to his hate sites.
Jay Nixon
If I won the lottery I’d start a charity that helped little family hardware stores, cobblers and fruit shops open in city centres.
Alexei Sayle
Take charity work for example; the motivation of my various charitable activities is neither for fame nor profits. It is my sincere wish that, through my efforts, more people can realize how important it is to protect our planet and to start to act for a change.
Li Bingbing
Being innovative in your philanthropy allows you to stride forward in your giving journey; you can marry your mind and heart to turn charity into lasting impact; and you can become more ambitious in your giving.
Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen
Charity is the drowning of justice in the craphole of mercy.
Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi
Charity is very difficult to do right. Thinking through what people need: You can’t start a charity without that. It’s like starting a business without the product.
Manoj Bhargava
Last week I was in London at an awards show, then I flew home and was in an RV park with my wife and kids in our motorhome, this week I’m in NY doing a charity event, and tomorrow I’ll be coaching my daughters soccer practice. I guess the range of roles I play on film stem from the range of roles I play in real life.
Peter Facinelli
Lent is a fitting time for self-denial; we would do well to ask ourselves what we can give up in order to help and enrich others by our own poverty. Let us not forget that real poverty hurts: no self-denial is real without this dimension of penance. I distrust a charity that costs nothing and does not hurt.
Pope Francis
The habit of being uniformly considerate toward others will bring to you increased happiness.
Grenville Kleiser
Even the best community organizations and faith-based initiatives and the extraordinary charity of Americans across the country can’t carry the brunt of eliminating poverty.
Irwin Redlener
Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Norman MacEwen
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
Unknown
No one has ever become poor by giving.

Betty Smith
You know the way I play golf, it’s a good I do these things for charities.
Joe Mantegna
I was Danny Zuko in ‘Grease,’ and I was in the musical ‘Sweet Charity’ and then in the musical ‘On the Twentieth Century.’ They were great. I mean, singing isn’t really my strong suit, but I just really enjoyed it.
Sebastian Stan
I think often times when people choose to be part of a charity; it’s usually because something is very personal.
Elizabeth Berkley
When faith and hope fail, as they do sometimes, we must try charity, which is love in action. We must speculate no more on our duty, but simply do it. When we have done it, however blindly, perhaps Heaven will show us why.
Dinah Maria Mulock
Charity begins at home, and justice begins next door.
Charles Dickens
Sparks is a sporting charity that puts on golf tournaments for sick children, and my animal charities include Oldham Cats and Feline Care, a big cat charity close to me in Norfolk. I’m also a Freemason and the money they raise for charity is phenomenal.
Rick Wakeman
Charity should begin at home, but should not stay there.
Phillips Brooks
As a patron of a youth education charity it is my duty to use my platform as a voice for all, regardless of background.
Chris Smalling
In charity, every little bit works. You can’t change the world. You can’t do everything. But you sure try to bring awareness and do as much as you can.
Naomi Campbell
Don’t just put it off and think about it!
Horace
Fighting by itself doesn’t interest me anymore. I want to help people, the black people and I need any kind of media to spread my thought: God, charity, peace.
Muhammad Ali
To give up yourself without regret is the greatest charity.
Bodhidharma
Barbra Streisand developed overwhelming performance anxiety at the height of her career; for 27 years she refused to perform for the general public, appearing live only in private clubs and at charity events, where she presumably believed the pressure on her was less intense.
Scott Stossel
Charity But how shall we expect charity towards others, when we are uncharitable to ourselves? Charity begins at home, is the voice of the world; yet is every man his greatest enemy, and, as it were, his own executioner.
Thomas Browne
Charity only perpetuates poverty by taking the initiative away from the poor.
Muhammad Yunus
My favorite charity is the Women’s Refugee Commission and the Nomi network.
Mamie Gummer
I hold that Christian grace abounds Where charity is seen; that when We climb to heaven, ’tis on the rounds Of love to men.
Alice Cary
Fair Trade is all about improving lives, but we don’t do that through charity – there is no hand out in the Fair Trade movement. People are solving their own problems through Fair Trade.
Paul Rice
If you look at things that really affect people’s lives – sport, the arts, charities – they were always at the back of the queue for government money – health, social security, defence, pensions were all way ahead. And each of those areas – sports, the arts, the lottery – got relatively petty cash from the government.
John Major
To consider yourself an environmentalist and still eat meat is like saying you’re a philanthropist who doesn’t give to charity.
Howard Lyman
An apostolic missionary must have both heart and tongue ablaze with charity.
Anthony Mary Claret
It seems to me that any full grown, mature adult would have a desire to be responsible, to help where he can in a world that needs so very much, that threatens us so very much.
Norman Lear
Never stand begging for that which you have the power to earn.
Miguel de Cervantes
He who hath two coats, let him impart to him that hath none.

Let us draw the curtain of charity over the rest of this scene
Mark Twain
There’s nothing more rewarding than making a difference doing charity work or being able to be there for a friend.
Michael Ealy
Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. […] You only need a heart full of grace.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
If we make sacrifices in doing good or in doing ill, it does not alter the ultimate value of our actions; even if we stake our life in the cause, as martyrs do for the sake of our church : it is a sacrifice to our longing for power, or for the purpose of conserving our sense of power.
Friedrich Nietzsche
In a word: charity cannot be neutral, antiseptic, indifferent, lukewarm or impartial! Charity is infectious, it excites, it risks and it engages! For true charity is always unmerited, unconditional and gratuitous!
Pope Francis
Most of the money given by rich people in “charity” is made up of conscience money, “ransom,” political bribery, and bids for titles…. One buys moral credit by signing a cheque, which is easier than turning a prayer wheel.
George Bernard Shaw
Only add
Deeds to thy knowledge answerable, add faith,
Add virtue, patience, temperance, add love,
By name to come call’d charity, the soul
Of all the rest; then wilt thou not be loath
To leave this Paradise, but shall possess
A Paradise within thee, happier far.
John Milton
True charity is spontaneous and finds its own occasion; it is never the offspring of importunity, nor of emulation.
Hosea Ballou
Nowhere is wisdom more necessary than in the guidance of charitable impulses. Meaning well is only half our duty; Thinking right is the other, and equally important, half.
Samuel Gridley Howe
Wherever the fear of God rules in the heart, it will appear both in works of charity and piety, and neither will excuse us from the other.
Matthew Henry
The founder of the Mona Foundation actually knew my dad for years, and the more I learned about it, the more I realized I really found the perfect charity. It sponsors schools and educational initiatives all over the planet.
Rainn Wilson
My charity is outrage, life my shame; And in that shame still live my sorrow’s rage!
William Shakespeare
Marty Baron, ‘The Post’s executive editor, stopped me in the elevator lobby late one debate night and suggested we look into the Trump Foundation specifically. I also became interested in researching Trump’s broader history of charity.
David Fahrenthold
I realized that my money would do vastly more good for others than it could for me and decided to make a commitment to donating to the most effective charities I could find. Many people contacted me asking how they could do this as well, and so I set up giving what we can.
Toby Ord
If a man does not know what port he is steering for, no wind is favorable to him.
Seneca the Elder
Have charity towards all beings. Pity those who are in distress. Love all creatures. Do not be jealous of anyone. Look not to the faults of others.
Swami Vivekananda
No one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.
Eleanor Roosevelt
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
Edith Wharton
The existence of poverty is the proof of an unjust and ill-organised society, and our public charities are but the first tardy awakening in the conscience of a robber.
Sri Aurobindo
I already do some charity, but I don’t necessarily talk about it. That doesn’t mean I don’t do it.
Dan Bilzerian
Service changes people. It refines, purifies, gives a finer perspective, and brings out the best in each one of us. It gets us looking outward instead of inward. Righteous service is the expression of true charity, such as the Savior showed.
Derek A. Cuthbert
Hope is the mainspring of human action; faith seals our lease of immortality; and charity and love give the passport to the soul’s true and lasting happiness.
Alfred Billings Street
Charity has always been a expression of the guilty consciences of a ruling class.
Doris Lessing
So, ministers say that they teach charity. This is natural. They live on alms. All beggars teach that others should give.
Robert Green Ingersoll
I am so much more than what happened to me. I’m a mother and a businesswoman; I run a charity that supports others overcoming adversity; and, most importantly, I’m happy.
Katie Piper
The best gifts to give: To your friend, loyalty; To your enemy, forgiveness; To your boss, service; To a child, a good example; To your parents, gratitude and devotion; To your mate, love and faithfulness; To all men and women, charity.
Oren Arnold
Ah, how little you know of human happiness – you comfortable and benevolent people! For happiness and unhappiness are brother and sister – or even twins who grow up together – or in your case – remain small together!
Friedrich Nietzsche
Save the Children is an awesome charity that has helped more than 125 million children around the world, providing everything from school books to food to blankets and shelter.
PewDiePie
Charity keepeth us in Faith and Hope, and Hope leadeth us in Charity. And in the end all shall be Charity.
Julian of Norwich
The best philanthropy is constantly in search of the finalities-a search for a cause, an attempt to cure evils at their source.
John D. Rockefeller
Love should make joy; but our benevolence is unhappy. Our Sunday-schools, and churches, and pauper-societies are yokes to the neck. We pain ourselves to please nobody.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I do a fair bit for children’s charities. The big ones I support in Liverpool are Zoe’s Place Baby Hospice, and Claire House Children’s Hospice. I donate money and time but the time is what they value the most. If my inclusion at any event they’re doing, helps them to raise more money, then of course I’ll be there.
Robbie Fowler
In contrast to the institutions of the world, which teach us to KNOW something, the gospel of Jesus Christ challenges us to BECOME something…The gospel of Jesus Christ is the plan by which we can become what children of god are supposed to become…Charity is something one becomes.
Dallin H. Oaks
I got to Brighton in the late 90s and discovered samplers. Suddenly, I could be my own band with a guitar and sampler, getting my drums in charity shop records. It was better than bashing around in someone’s basement, trying to compromise ideas.
Bonobo
When paying charity, one should smile and be humble, allowing the hand of the indigent to be above the giver’s hand.
Hamza Yusuf
Life is a magic vase filled to the brim, so made that you cannot dip from it nor draw from it; but it overflows into the hand that drops treasures into it. Drop in malice and it overflows hate; drop in charity and it overflows love.
John Ruskin
The work an unknown good man has done is like a vein of water flowing hidden underground, secretly making the ground green.
Thomas Carlyle
While governments are not off the hook, the charity world needs to innovate and find new ways to attract outside investment to boost our social productivity.
Craig Kielburger
Who gives himself with his alms feeds three, himself, his hungering neighbor and me.
James Russell Lowell
A man’s drive for profit should be prompted by the desire to give charity.
Nachman of Breslov
Christian life consists of faith and charity
Martin Luther
Going to a charity tea party and thinking that you’ve done your bit toward putting an end to social inequity in the world.
Paulo Coelho
Women know the damnation of charity because the habit of civilization has always been to throw them cheap alms rather than give them good wages.
Rebecca West
Charity is an eternal debt and without limit.
Pasquier Quesnel
Donald Trump is the first candidate ever to run for president in the last 40-plus years who has not released his tax returns, so everything he says about charity or anything else, we can’t prove it.
Hillary Clinton

I donate lots to charity. I don’t necessarily tell everybody the number or what I do.

Charity is the perfection and ornament of religion.
Joseph Addison
The government of the United States is a definite government, confined to specified objects. It is not like the state governments, whose powers are more general. Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.

I will become a firefly and even in the day my glow will be seen in spite of the sun. Let others be as butterflies who preen their wings yet depend on the charity of a flower for life.

Swami Vivekananda
We want wealth, but there are many other things we want very much more. Among them are peace, honor, charity, and idealism.

David Fahrenthold
Children, we should simplify our life’s needs and use the resulting savings for charity.
Mata Amritanandamayi

Martin Luther
It is undeniable that every human being is entitled to living space, daily bread, and the protection of the law as a common birthright; these are fundamentals and should not be handed out as an act of charity.

St. Catherine of Siena
An atheist can be charitable but not religious. But the religious man must be charitable.

Bryan Kest
The appalling thing is the degree of charity women are capable of. You see it all the time… love lavished on absolute fools. Love’s a charity ward, you know.
Lawrence Durrell
Charity is reaching into one’s own pockets to assist his fellow man in need. Reaching into someone else’s pocket to assist one’s fellow man hardly qualifies as charity. When done privately, we deem it theft, and the individual risks jail time.

It is not the magnitude of our actions, but the amount of love that is put into them that matters.

George Washington Carver
That’s what I consider true generosity. You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing.
Simone de Beauvoir
On this Twitter thing, at least five people a day say ‘bring back the mullet.’ My wife told me I’m not allowed. Troy Tulowitzki wants me to grow a rat-tail for his charity. I was like, ‘What the heck is a rat-tail?’
John Kruk
Western society is a society of ever richer, more varied, more productive, more self-defined, and more satisfying lives; it is a society of boundless private charity; it is a society that broke, on behalf of merit, the seemingly eternal chains of station by birth.
Ibn Warraq
You always enter God’s hospital as a charity patient. You can’t pay your way.
Vance Havner
Hebrew word for “charity” tzedakah, simply means “justice” and as this suggests, for Jews, giving to the poor is no optional extra but an essential part of living a just life.
Peter Singer
…this charity…They quibble too much over procedures…while we seek a cure. They complain too loudly against another who, seemingly, has perfected a work that the public expects its charity dollars to do. Maybe we should investigate the American Cancer Society’s operations.
Roland V. Libonati
The Islam that we know is a faith devoted to the worship of one God, as revealed through The Holy Qu’ran. It teaches the value and importance of charity, mercy, and peace.
George W. Bush
Tim Tebow is one of my biggest inspirations. I actually want to be able to do some of the things that he does in terms of the amount of charity work and the non-profit work, and the way he impacts people off the field. I think that is what is most inspiring to me about him.
Jeremy Lin
I want to show people who I am, introduce them to my family, where I’ve come from, how I’m helping people with my charity work. I know it sounds boring, but with that comes with a lot and a lot of bumps in the road.

Calvin Coolidge
When you give yourself, you receive more than you give.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The silver ore of pure charity is an expensive article in the catalogue of a man’s good qualities.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
When our cup runs over, we let others drink the drops that fall, but not a drop from within the rim, and call it charity; when the crumbs are swept from our table, we think it generous to let the dogs eat them; as if that were charity which permits others to have what we cannot keep.
Henry Ward Beecher
Anticipate charity by preventing poverty.
Maimonides
It is never ok for politicians to abuse their power for self enrichment, and even for has-beens and also-rans there has to be some brand of justice so present and future presidents don’t get lured into taking crafty, well disguised bribes pretending it’s ‘charity.’
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery
All men naturally hate each other. We have used concupiscence as best we can to make it serve the common good, but this is mere sham and a false image of charity, for essentially it is just hate.
Blaise Pascal
The love of truth is the stimulus to all noble conversation. This is the root of all the charities. The tree which springs from it may have a thousand branches, but they will all bear a golden and generous fruitage.

Such events may be disbelieved or disregarded; but the charity of a bishop, Acacius of Amida, whose name might have dignified the saintly calendar, shall not be lost in oblivion.
Edward Gibbon
It is easier to give all your goods to feed the poor, or not to have any goods – only your virtues, to boast of – than it is to judge the rich with charity.
Corra May Harris
[On the socialites in New York in the Nineties who devoted themselves to politics, charities, and other volunteer work:] I never knew but one woman who devoted her life exclusively to the social game. She ended her days arranging dinner parties with paper dolls, a breakdown pitiful to watch.

I do shamefully little for charity, and I always talk about it when I do.
John Niven
Doing charity work is always cool. It’s always a good thing.

The other part of the true religion is our duty to man.

Isaac Newton

Kevin Sorenson
Well, ‘Grimm’ is important to me for obvious reasons. I’m lucky to be able to do what I love to do for a living. I never, ever forget that. And charity work just helps me feel like I’m doing something to support my belief that we are all one. I’d like to actually do more in the future.
Reggie Lee
I like a challenge. I need to feel passionate about something. If I’m not passionate about it, I can’t stand it. It has to feel real. DJ’ing, touring, charity work – anything.
Tiesto
We may convert every house in the country into a charity asylum, we may fill the land with hospitals, but the misery of man will still continue to exist until man’s character changes.
Swami Vivekananda
When you have kids, you just love them. It’s similar to when you’re in love with someone. You just think they are so cool and want to be around them all the time, but what if she starts being embarrassed and only giving me charity visits? I want her to actually want to see me, so that’s what I’m going for!
Jeremy Sisto
My charity is called ‘Grand Kids.’ People keep thinking it’s ‘Grandkids.’
Curtis Granderson

It maketh God man, and man God; things temporal, eternal; mortal, immortal; it maketh an enemy a friend, a servant a son, vile things glorious, cold hearts fiery, and hard thing liquid.

True virtue has no limits, but goes on and on, and especially holy charity, which is the virtue of virtues, and which having a definite object, would become infinite if it could meet with a heart capable of infinity.
Saint Francis de Sales
Steve Jobs is considered an amazing genius and made billions of dollars. Sure, we overlook that he didn’t pay his share of taxes and didn’t believe in charity. But other than these occasional rumblings of dissent, he is pretty much held in high esteem.
Tom Green
Just as doubt, despair, and desensitization go together, so do faith, hope, and charity. The latter, however, must be carefully and constantly nurtured, whereas despair, like dandelions, needs so little encouragement to sprout and spread. Despair comes so naturally to the natural man!
Neal A. Maxwell
Dear young people, put your talents at the service of the Gospel, with creativity and boundless charity.

John Ruskin
Now then, if we were to go the lowest road and plaster my face on the bottle of oil and vinegar dressing just to line our pockets, it would sink. But to go the low road to get to the high road- shameless exploitation for charity, for the common good- now that’s an idea worth the hustle, a reciprocal trade agreement.
Paul Newman
Let us never forget that if we wish to die like the Saints we must live like them. Let us force ourselves to imitate their virtues, in particular humility and charity.
Theodore Guerin
That is part of our critique of some of the charity and service work is that we can still keep relationships at a distance by creating programs that offer services but we don’t really create a reconciled community.
Shane Claiborne
Being charitable provides a boost to your psyche that is tough to replicate in any other way. But note that although any charity will happily take your money, you can give in other ways and still reap the same happiness reward. Volunteering and donating your old or unused belongings have the same result.
Jean Chatzky
I give a lot to charity when it comes to clothes.

Hyrum W. Smith
When ‘Joy Luck Club’ came out, I kind of became a role model for the Asian acting community. I started to talk at colleges and emcee charity things. I’m much more connected to my sense of being Asian now.

The Clintons want to do big worthy things, but they also want to squeeze money from rich people wherever they live on planet Earth, insatiably gobbling up cash for politics and charity and themselves from the same incestuous swirl.
Maureen Dowd
When faith and hope fail, as they do sometimes, we must try charity, which is love in action. We must speculate no more on our duty, but simply do it. When we have done it, however blindly, perhaps Heaven will show us why.

John Ruskin
After my touring life, I’d love to be more involved with charity. It gives me a lot of fulfillment, you know? I would love to get people who are into my music more active in charity work. In the future, when I have more time, I’d love to do spend more time on that.
Tiesto
I asked long ago,’What must I do to be saved?’ The Scripture answered, ‘Keep the commandments, believe, hope, love.’ I was early warned against laying, as the Papists do, too much stress on outward works, or on a faith without works, which as it does not include, so it will never lead to true hope or charity.
John Wesley
Every year Steve Kaufman supports the charity “Love Ride” by donating a painting to this cause.

Another reason why I am always close to the people, because the communication is very important. When I stopped to play soccer I continued to… I continued to work with UNICEF. I did a lot of work with UNESCO. We did a lot of charity programme and games.
Pele

Joy, with peace, is the sister of charity. Serve the Lord with laughter.

Nikki Reed
Practicing charity is the best way to evangelize.
Pope Francis
Michael Sunday and I are the original members of the band. We first did it just for charities and benefit concerts. It was very ad-hoc, and before we knew it, we were really a band. We went through several drummers and guitarists before we were happy with the line up.

I never intended on starting a charity; I never intended on cancer, health, and wellness becoming my life.
Yael Cohen
I send them my warmest encouragement to persevere in the patience and charity of Christ.
Pope Benedict XVI

Li Bingbing
Teaism is a cult founded on the adoration of the beautiful among the sordid facts of everyday existence. It inculcates purity and harmony, the mystery of mutual charity, the romanticism of the social order.

Mother Teresa
Depth of understanding involves something which is more than merely a matter of deconstructive alertness; it involves a measure of interpretative charity and at least the beginnings of a wide responsiveness.

This cancer isn’t life-threatening so I consider myself to be very fortunate. In the course of my charity work I meet so many people who have suffered terribly – what I’ve got really isn’t an issue.
Princess Michael of Kent
U.S. commitment to NATO and our commitments our European partners is not an act of charity. It’s not a gift that we give to our European partners. It’s actually part of our security, as well, and their security is our security.
Derek Chollet
Nothing leads more directly to the breach of charity, and to the injury and molestation of our fellow-creatures, than the indulgence of an ill temper.
Hugh Blair
In what is necessary, unity; in what is not necessary, liberty and in all things charity.
Saint Augustine

George Washington
You only get to keep what you give away.

In Giving, a man receives more than he gives; and the more is in proportion to the worth of the thing given.
George MacDonald
Politics, according to the Social Doctrine of the Church, is one of the highest forms of charity, because it serves the common good. I cannot wash my hands, eh? We all have to give something!
Pope Francis
You have to feel more involved than just writing out a cheque. Charity is almost the wrong word – I think people are beginning to feel more responsible for the world.
Joanna Lumley
I don’t know if I’m a heroine; I’m just somebody that can cheer the troops by singing to folks, and have receptions after the show, and tithe a dollar of every ticket sale for all kinds of different great charities and social action groups.
Bonnie Raitt
The most fundamental winning formula is to bet on human decency and be patient.
Robert Breault
The success of our economy has always depended not just on the size of our gross domestic product, but on the reach of our prosperity; on the ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart – not out of charity, but because it is the surest route to our common good.
Barack Obama
Give no bounties: make equal laws: secure life and prosperity and you need not give alms.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I probably do the most for the gay and lesbian community, or LGBT, but I don’t have one that I focus on. I just try and kind of do a lot for different charities.

Philippe Coutinho
A great man is always willing to be little.

Alberto Fernandez
You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.
John Bunyan

Tom Colicchio
I always recommend signing up to a race or charity event if you’re finding it tough to get going. I love it because it means I’m training for a reason. Being accountable is the best fear tactic for making you get fit.

International solidarity is not an act of charity: It is an act of unity between allies fighting on different terrains toward the same objective. The foremost of these objectives is to aid the development of humanity to the highest level possible.
Samora Machel
If we lived in a state where virtue was profitable, common sense would make us saintly. But since we see that avarice, anger, pride and stupidity commonly profit far beyond charity, modesty, justice and thought, perhaps we must stand fast a little, even at the risk of being heroes.
Thomas More
To help someone in need is not charity it is proper etiquette.
Robert Breault
Mankind was my business… charity, mercy, forbearance, benevolence, were all my business.
Charles Dickens
As every lord giveth a certain livery to his servants, charity is the very livery of Christ. Our Saviour, Who is the Lord above all lords, would have His servants known their badge, which is love.
Hugh Latimer
IRS rules generally prohibit acts of ‘self-dealing,’ in which a charity’s leaders use the nonprofit group’s money to buy things for themselves.
David Fahrenthold
With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds.
Abraham Lincoln
It is a wonderful fact that men and women saved by the blood of Jesus rarely remain subjects of charity, but rise at once to comfort and respectability… I never saw a man who put Christ first in his life that wasn’t successful.
Dwight L. Moody
It is not begging but the beggar, who has forfeited favor with the elect.
Agnes Repplier
Ethics doesn’t require us to ignore our self-interests or demand a life of self-sacrifice. It requires that we know the difference between what we want and what we should do
Michael Josephson
Lincoln said, ‘With malice toward none, with charity to all.’ Nowadays they say, ‘Think the way I do or I’ll bomb the daylights outta you.’
Lionel Barrymore
I love to observe Christmas in quietude, humility, benevolence, charity, letting good will towards man, eloquent silence, prayer, and praise express my conception of Truth’s appearing.
Mary Baker Eddy
Charity wins awards and applause, but joining the poor gets you killed.В  People do not get crucified for charity.В  People are crucified for living out a love that disrupts the social order, that calls forth a new world.В  People are not crucified for helping poor people.В  People are crucified for joining them.
Shane Claiborne
Dear young people, the Church depends on you! She needs your lively faith, your creative charity and the energy of your hope. Your presence renews, rejuvenates and gives new energy to the Church.
Pope Benedict XVI
Ted is smart and good-looking, but he doesn’t use it to good effect, like a rich person that never gives to charity.
David Levithan
Gently to hear, kindly to judge.
William Shakespeare
The Latin root of ‘precariousness’ is ‘to obtain by prayer.’ The precariat must ask for favours, for charity, to show obsequiousness, to plead with figures of authority. It is degrading and stigmatizing.
Guy Standing
I moved to Los Angeles, and ‘The Office’ became successful, and the charity/cocktail party circuit is really not my scene. But I played golf, and I started getting invited to charity golf events, and I just fell in love with the game ten-fold, and at a lot of these events, there were athletes.
Brian Baumgartner
Our prayers for others flow more easily than those for ourselves. This shows we are made to live by charity.
C. S. Lewis
Note that charity is given only to those who seek it, only to those who earnestly pray for it, only to those who are disciples of Christ. Before we can be filled with this pure love, we must start at the beginning with the first principle of the gospel. We must have “first, Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.”
Joseph B. Wirthlin
We look to our pastors and priests and rabbis and counselors of all kinds to testify of the enduring principles upon which our society is built: honesty, charity, integrity and family.
Mitt Romney
To be a well-favoured man is the gift of fortune; but to write and read comes by nature.
William Shakespeare
All thy vexations Were but my trials of thy love, and thou Hast strangely stood the test; here, afore heaven, I ratify this my rich gift.
William Shakespeare
I don’t work with anyone out of a sense of charity. I use people as long as they are useful to me.
Ram Gopal Varma
We should not feel pride in our charity, austerity, valour, scriptural knowledge, modestyandmorality for the world is full of the rarest gems.
Chanakya
You cannot pray at home, like you can at church, where there is a great multitude; where exclamations are cried out to God as from one great heart, and where there is something more: the unions of minds, the accord of souls, the bond of charity, the prayers of priests.
Saint John Chrysostom
I think, in this country, we have a problem where we view the arts as charity, and therefore, it has no value. Things in America that have value are profitable, and unless you are profitable, we don’t know where to put you.
Jason Ralph
My father worked for a children’s home called Dr. Barnardo’s Homes. They’re a charity.
David Bowie
He that distributeth not That which he hath received– His food, his drink, his sustenance– Unto devotee, brahman, beggar, wayfarer– Such a low man as he, they say, is like Unto a lack of rain.
Gautama Buddha
…perhaps charity is the kind of beauty that we comprehend the best because we miss it the most.
Gregory Maguire
I was always clear that I didn’t want to just do pure charity. My thinking was definitely about looking at the levers in society that will change the system of inequity, not one person’s misfortune.
Rohini Nilekani
Real charity and real ability never to condemn-the one real virtue-is so often the result of a waking experience that gives a glimpse of what lies beneath things.
Ivy Compton-Burnett
Being innovative in your philantropy allows you to stride forward in your giving journey; you can marry your mind and heart to turn charity into lasting impact; and you can become more ambitious in your giving.
Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen
I went to a pizzeria. The guy gave me the smallest slice possible. If the pizza was a pie chart with what would you do if you found a million dollars, he gave me the “Donate it to charity” slice. “I’d like to exchange this for the ‘Keep it!'”
Mitch Hedberg
I thank heaven I have often had it in my power to give help and relief, and this is still my greatest pleasure. If I could choose my sphere of action now, it would be that of the most simple and direct efforts of this kind.
Reinhold Niebuhr
By our little acts of charity practiced in the shade we convert souls far away, we help missionaries, we win for them abundant alms; and by that means build actual dwellings spiritual and material for our Eucharistic Lord.
Therese of Lisieux
I’m also very passionate about charity because it helps people who don’t have as loud of a voice as I do.
Demi Lovato
If you can’t distinguish people from lap-dogs, you shouldn’t undertake philanthropic work.
Anton Chekhov
In the real world, I see conservatives volunteering at adoption agencies, at churches, at bake sales and the local American Legion Post while the only charity a progressive sends is a smug sermon on fair share and what fairness is.
Allen West
As wonderful as charity is, that money runs out. It’s not sustainable. It lasts for a certain period of time and it’s gone. What i really think people need is the opportunity to help themselves.
Emma Watson
Where there is plenty, charity is a duty, not a courtesy
Owen Feltham
There are so many fun charity festivals in the Hamptons. We enjoy so many fun events for kids such as Kidsfest. We also go to Super Saturday. We like to chill out and go out by the pool. We do things that are fun for kids and good for charity.
Kelly Rutherford
I do a lot of stuff. I mean, you know, charity work.
Sylvia Browne
How often we recall with regret that Napoleon once shot at a magazine editor and missed him and killed a publisher. But we remember with charity that his intentions were good.
Mark Twain
I distributed my wealth among my children and set aside a portion for endowment to run charity projects.
Sulaiman Abdul Aziz Al Rajhi
IIFA is always involved in charity, and that’s why it’s a great thing that I am a part of IIFA and will continue to work along with them.
Akshay Kumar
Charity: a thing that begins at home, and usually stays there.
Elbert Hubbard
To me, charity often is just about giving, because you’re supposed to, or because it’s what you’ve always done – or it’s about giving until it hurts.
Majora Carter
I have a friend who lives in the South Side of Chicago. I helped out at a church charity there where they try to give a bit of cohesion to a desperate area. Everyone was very welcoming
Sara Paretsky
The system of volunteerism is divisive. It pits one charity against the others for the charity dollar.
Phil Donahue
If I survive, I will spend my whole life at the oven door seeing that no one is denied bread and, so as to give a lesson of charity, especially those who did not bring flour.
Jose Marti
Helping people doesn’t have to be an unsound financial strategy.
Melinda Gates
I always like a charity with people who don’t speak English because I get them to do all kinds of things around my house.
Joan Rivers
Wen you’re a married man, Samivel, you’ll understand a good many things as you don’t understand now; but vether it’s worth while goin’ through so much to learn so little, as the charity-boy sand ven he go to the end of the alphabet, it’s a matter of taste.
Charles Dickens
The man who dies rich, dies disgraced.
Andrew Carnegie
Whether it’s choosing a career or deciding what charity to get involved with, the choice should come from your heart. Ultimately you are the one who has to get up every morning and enjoy what you are doing, so make sure it matters to you.
Dave Thomas
It demands great spiritual resilience not to hate the hater whose foot is on your neck, and an even greater miracle of perception and charity not to teach your child to hate.
James A. Baldwin
How white are the fair robes of Charity as she walketh amid the lowly habitations of the poor!
Hosea Ballou
I’ve never been a red carpet hugger unless it is for charity.
Ricky Hatton
I do my bit for charity.
Rod Stewart
These motivational tapes have really inspired me! I’m going to make a million dollars, buy my own company and retire early. Then, I’m going to write a novel and a symphony and give all the profits to charity. Then next month, I’ll figure out how to do it.
Randy Glasbergen
If appeasing our enemies is not the answer, neither is hating them…. Somewhere between the extremes of appeasement and hate there is a place for courage and strength to express themselves in magnanimity and charity, and this is the place we must find.
Alfred Whitney Griswold
To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To you, respect.
Oren Arnold
The argument of socialists, that people really want to share, beyond a reasonable level of charity, is rubbish, though it is espoused by a lot of rich, pious hypocrites who want to share only enough to avoid widespread starvation, mob violence, and government seizure of more of their incomes.
Conrad Black
There are eight levels of charity…. The highest is when you strengthen a man’s hand until he need no longer be dependent upon others.
Maimonides
Let anti-slavery charity boxes stand uppermost among those for missionary, tract and educational purposes. On this subject, Christians have been asleep; let them shake off their slumbers and arm for the holy contest.
William Lloyd Garrison
I buy so much stuff from charity shops.
Aisling Bea
Charity puts and end to poverty; righteous conduct to misery; discretion to ignorance; and scrutiny to fear.
Chanakya
If you’re the president of a charity, you can’t take the money out of the charity and use it to buy things for yourself. And you can’t take the money out of the charity and use it to buy things for your business.
David Fahrenthold
My choice was to ruin my son’s life by giving him money or giving 90-plus percent to charity. Not much of a choice.
Manoj Bhargava
Is it not when the fall is the lowest that charity ought to be the greatest?
Victor Hugo
Our energies are often stimulated by the necessity of supporting a being weaker than ourselves.
Honore de Balzac
I believe God wants you to have money to pay your bills, send your kids to college and do charity work and build orphanages. There’s the teaching that we’re supposed to be poor to show that we’re humble. I don’t buy that. I think we’re supposed to be leaders. We’re supposed to excel.
Joel Osteen
The proper education of poor children [is] the ground-work of almost every other kind of charity…. Without this foundation firstlaid, how much kindnessis unavoidably cast away?
Laurence Sterne
Enrich my heart, mouth, hands in me, With faith, with hope, with charity, That I may run, rise, rest with Thee.
George Herbert
What we employ in charitable uses during our lives is given away from ourselves; what we bequeath at our death is given from others only, as our nearest relations.
Francis Atterbury
Charity is a fine thing if it’s meeting a gap where needs must be met and there are no other resources. But in the long term we need to support people into helping themselves.
Annie Lennox
Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others…By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Why is it that so many people think that charity consists in giving away merely what they cannot use instead of the article the recipient needs?
Mabel Osgood Wright
It is a real tragedy for a nation when three groups of it’s people, namely politicians, religious leaders and charity workes, just pretend to be generous.
Khem Veasna
Triathlon is a sport where the legacy is obvious. Anyone can do it; there are loads you can do. It is a massive participation sport. You can do it as a challenge, for charity or whatever. I believe it will continue to grow, and I will look forward to that happening.
Alistair Brownlee
I try not to speak about all the charities and people I help, because I believe we can only be truly generous when we expect nothing in return.
Muhammad Ali
Bread for myself is a material question. Bread for my neighbor is a spiritual one.
Nikolai Berdyaev
On the last day, when the general examination takes place, there will be no question at all on the text of Aristotle, the aphorisms of Hippocrates, or the paragraphs of Justinian. Charity will be the whole syllabus.
Robert Bellarmine
But you too, help one another: help one another always. One another. In this way, by helping one another, we will do some good.
Pope Francis
Besides music and charity, fashion is one of my interests that has been growing over the past few years. I think it goes so hand in hand, music and fashion.
Tiesto
I’m very interested in charities. I help a lot of different charities.
Gisele Bundchen
I started this charity, Fashion for Relief, in 2005, after Hurricane Katrina happened. New Orleans was actually the first place I visited in the United States. It was one of my first big jobs, a shoot for British Elle. It was April 14, 1986.
Naomi Campbell
People who identify themselves as conservatives donate money to charity more often than people who identify themselves as liberals. They donate more money and a higher percentage of their incomes.
Thomas Sowell
He is truly great that is great in charity. He is truly great that is little in himself, and maketh no account of any height of honor. And he is truly learned that doeth the will of God, and forsaketh his own will.
Thomas a Kempis
I want to show that I have the same attitude to the game and personality that my hero had. I only ever met Ronaldinho once, at a charity event in Rio.
Philippe Coutinho
Like threads of silver seen through crystal beads Let love through good deeds show.
Edwin Arnold
When wealth is centralized, the people are dispersed. When wealth is distributed, the people are brought together.
Confucius
Anyone who has been as successful as I have should want to share those resources. Why not give some of it to charity?
Tom Golisano
I’d like to own Microsoft shares until I either give something to charity or I die.
Steve Ballmer
The fact that people are poor or discriminated against doesn’t necessarily endow them with any special qualities of justice, nobility, charity or compassion.
Saul Alinsky
We can do no great things-only small things with great love.
Mother Teresa
One ought not to encourage beggars, and yes, you are right, it is far better to donate to charities that address the causes of poverty rather than to him, a creature who is merely its symptom.
Mohsin Hamid
The Gospel purifies and renews: it bears fruit wherever the community of believers hears and welcomes the grace of God in truth and lives in charity. This is my faith; this is my joy.
Pope Benedict XVI
Ay, that incestuous, that adulterate beast, With witchcraft of his wit, with traitorous gifts- O wicked wit and gifts, that have the power So to seduce!
William Shakespeare
I believe my business and non-profit investments are much more beneficial to societal well-being than sending more money to Washington.
Charles Koch
Chastity without charity is a lamp without oil.
Bonaventure
In religion as in politics it so happens that we have less charity for those who believe half our creed, than for those who deny the whole of it.
Charles Caleb Colton
If Stephen Harper took off his shirt in public, I’m not sure he’d raise any money for charity.
Margaret Trudeau
My religion is humanitarianism, which is the basis of every religion in the world.
Abdul Sattar Edhi
I wouldn’t judge a man by the presuppositions of his life, but only by the fruits of his life. And the fruits – the relevant fruits – are, I’d say, a sense of charity, a sense of proportion, a sense of justice.
Reinhold Niebuhr
It seems to me to be the best proof of an evangelical disposition, that persons are not angry when reproached, and have a Christian charity for those that ill deserve it.
Desiderius Erasmus
Boards of public charity were invented by the devil to prevent real individual charity.
Austin O’Malley
Until we consider animal life to be worthy of the consideration and reverence we bestow upon old books and pictures and historic monuments, there will always be the animal refugee living a precarious life on the edge of extermination, dependent for existence on the charity of a few human beings.
Gerald Durrell
Be Charitable before wealth make thee covetous, and loose not the glory of the Mite.
Thomas Browne
Never say never. For the right reason, over the years I’ve been auctioning off masks for charity and it’s always for a good cause. I think you would regret it if you just sold it for money.
Henrik Lundqvist
People that trust wholly to other’s charity, and without industry of their own, will always be poor.
William Temple
Mitt Romney, two-time Republican presidential candidate, is going to fight Evander Holyfield for charity. I hope they save some of that money for funeral expenses.
David Letterman
I have a charity called the Chain Of Hope, where we target children from poor areas where heart surgery is not available, and we offer our services.
Magdi Yacoub
People don’t want to listen to a celebrity tweeting about their charities and shows. That’s why comedy writers do well – we put out little funny ideas.
Mindy Kaling
When I die, I should be ashamed to leave enough to build me a monument if there were a wanting friend above ground. I would enjoy the pleasure of what I give by giving it alive and seeing another enjoy it.
Alexander Pope
Remember to set apart at least one hour every day to do some service for others. While the food we eat nurtures our bodies, it is what we give in charity that nurtures our souls. If time is not available daily, reserve at least a few hours every week for some worthwhile act of charity.
Mata Amritanandamayi
I distrust a charity that costs nothing and does not hurt.
Pope Francis
Build what you want to see in the world.
Jack Dorsey
The time has come to make the difficult decision. Charity begins at home. We can no longer afford to rebuild Afghanistan and America. We must choose. And I choose America.
Joe Manchin
Too often, charity is extended to another when his actions or conduct are acceptable to us. The exhibition of charity to another must not be dependent on his performance. It should be given because of who we are-not because of how we behave.
H. Burke Peterson
I’m not doing my philanthropic work out of any kind of guilt, or any need to create good public relations. I’m doing it because I can afford to do it, and I believe in it.
George Soros
I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.
William Penn
Each Jew must either give or take tzedakah [charity] for Passover.
Sholom Aleichem
Somebody goes to a soup kitchen and serves the hungry, someone goes to a prison and tries to get people to turn their lives around – those are all Christian charities. This is just another charity the way I look at it. I don’t look at it as being special or different.
Ralph Sarchie
I am not in the giving vein today.
William Shakespeare
Sometimes we are simply “blown away” and in awe by finding ourselves in the presence of God. Other times, however, even when we are participating in acts of kindness-complimenting others, writing a check to charity, donating time to a good cause-we are oblivious to the miracle of what is happening at that moment.
Harold S. Kushner
If younger people see older people who haven’t planned ahead and have to rely on charity, the young will be more likely to provide for the future. Today when someone plans poorly, the only consequence people see is a demand for more government.
Harry Browne
Peace and union are the most necessary of all things for men who live in common, and nothing serves so well to establish and maintain these as the forbearing charity whereby we put up with one another’s defects.
Robert Bellarmine
In all works of liberality something more is to be considered besides the occasion of the givers; and that is the occasion of the receivers.
Thomas Sprat
…a young nurse is standing close behind me wondering whether she is being drawn by my power or her charity.
Leonard Cohen
It is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity toward each other.
James Madison
There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.
Mahatma Gandhi
I know now that true charity consists in bearing all our neighbors’defects–not being surprised at their weakness, but edified at their smallest virtues.
Therese of Lisieux
Affectation hides three times as many virtues as charity does sins.
Horace Mann
Charity is just writing checks and not being engaged. Philanthropy, to me, is being engaged, not only with your resources but getting people and yourself really involved and doing things that haven’t been done before.
Eli Broad
Wherever I am, let me never forget to distinguish want from need
Barbara Kingsolver
My friends and family know I love playing baseball – Little League through college. And every year in the annual Congressional Baseball Game for charity played at Nationals Stadium.
Kevin Brady
I own about 300 pairs of shoes. When I start to go over 300, I have mini-sales from my closet and give the money to charity. It’s my way of recycling; I feel like I can give back to the universe.
Stacy London
Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
If everyone howled at every injustice, every act of barbarism, every act of unkindness, then we would be taking the first step towards a real humanity.
Nelson DeMille
Her virtues, graced with external gifts, Do breed love’s settled passions in my heart; And like as rigour of tempestuous gusts Provokes the mightiest hulk against the tide, So am I driven by breath of her renown Either to suffer shipwreck or arrive Where I may have fruition of her love.
William Shakespeare
My mother died when I was very young. I didn’t want to be in the position I was in, but I eventually pulled my head out of the sand, started listening to people, and decided to use my role for good. I am now fired up and energized and love charity stuff, meeting people, and making them laugh.
Prince Harry
There are moments when great music can be the greatest service and charity.
Michael Leunig
Let it Flow is a water charity that my mom and I started back in 2011. We focus mostly on building and the majority of the time, repairing wells because of the insane amount of the number of wells out there in the world just need to be repaired by simple parts.
Nyjah Huston
We’re reclaiming America and restoring honor. I believe we do that with faith, with hope, with charity, and honoring our brothers and our sisters as we honor each other.
Alveda King
In spite of what are unprecedented measures in scale and scope, I can’t stand here and say I can save every single job, protect every single business or indeed every single charity. That’s just simply not possible.
Rishi Sunak
Charity should be blind to everything but need. Our personal feelings should not determine whose starvation is legitimate.
Michael Redhill
Everything that is in the heavens, on earth, and under the earth is penetrated with connectedness, penetrated with relatedness.
Hildegard of Bingen
I am very driven. I work really hard, whether it’s acting or my charity or even poker. When I focus on something I give it my all.
Shannon Elizabeth
I am sure that if somebody is giving a sum to charity, he or she should be encouraged to do so by the authorities because the spirit in which we encourage people to give has permeated our society.
Nelson Mandela
My own service started when I was 12, with the small charity I launched with 12 friends. Twenty years later, millions have joined our ranks – educators, business leaders and prominent Canadians.
Craig Kielburger
I have a Children’s Charity in Cuckfield, West Sussex, which helps young children affected by cerebral palsy and associated disorders. The perseverance these young people display every day is inspirational.
Vera Lynn
There are those who give little of the much which they have – and they give it for recognition and their hidden desire makes their gifts unwholesome.
Khalil Gibran
Christ commands you to take up His cross and follow Him, not that He may humble you, or lay some penance upon you, but that you may surrender the low self-will and the feeble pride of your sin, and ascend into the sublime patience of heavenly charity.
Horace Bushnell
Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Politics is noble; it is one of the highest forms of charity, as Paul VI used to say. We sully it when we mix it with business. The relationship between the Church and political power can also be corrupted if common good is not the only converging point.
Pope Francis
Salman is a very good friend of mine and all I wish for him is happiness. He is very helping and has done immense charity work which helps many.
Ravi Kishan
Even for charity I always give priority to education because I always teach young people – knowledge is your real companion, your life long companion, not fortune. Fortune can disappear.
Stanley Ho
In a just world, there would be no possibility of ‘charity’.
Bertrand Russell
For those who are not hungry, it is easy to palaver about the degradation of charity.
Charlotte Bronte
Whichever work you do, people go through life having several priorities. I know my football is what got me here. The work I do for SOS or my charity work in general has always been a priority for me, and then my family is a priority as well, so you set yourself different things, and they just balance each other out.
Vincent Kompany
Government charity gives the most to those who refuse to help themselves; private charity gives less.
James Cook
An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
As far as Martin [Luther] himself is concerned, O good God, what have we overlooked or not done? What fatherly charity have we omitted that we might call him back from such errors?
Pope Leo X
If you are wealthy enough, use part or all of your Social Security proceeds to invest in a favorite cause or two. Invest 10 percent or 100 percent of your monthly Social Security check in your favorite charity, foundation, think tank, church or synagogue, or other good cause.
Mark Skousen
A beggar through the world am I, From place to place I wander by. Fill up my pilgrim’s scrip for me, For Christ’s sweet sake and charity.
James Russell Lowell
Jessica Simpson is the youth ambassador for Operation Smile, and an episode of The Apprentice featured a team managing a charity concert she put on. Donald Trump came on stage and pledged a donation.
Roma Downey
You cannot rectify grievances from the past with today’s charity.
James Cook
Heaven would that she these gifts should have, and I to live and die her slave.
William Shakespeare
Real progress is progress in charity, all other advances being secondary thereto.
Aldous Huxley
Let us never forget that an age prospers or dwindles in proportion to its devotion to the Holy Eucharist. This is the measure of its spiritual life and its faith, of its charity and its virtue.
Peter Julian Eymard
Be charitable and indulge to everyone, but thyself.
Joseph Joubert
You cannot separate charity and religion.
Charles Caleb Colton
The truth of the matter is: you can create a great legacy, and inspire others, by giving it to philanthropic organizations.
Michael Bloomberg
The only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. Our charities should pinch and hamper us. If we live at the same level of affluence as other people who have our level of income, we are probably giving away too little.
C. S. Lewis
New York is a great place to be if you want to make an impact and be involved in charities or philanthropic organizations like my wife and I are.
Justin Tuck
Unity in things Necessary, Liberty in things Unnecessary, and Charity in all.
Richard Baxter
Those who are acquainted with the literature of India will remember a beautiful old story about this extreme charity, how a whole family, as related in the MahГўbhГўrata, starved themselves to death and gave their last meal to a beggar. This is not an exaggeration, for such things still happen.
Swami Vivekananda
I would rather have it said, ‘He lived usefully,’ than, ‘He died rich.’
Benjamin Franklin
Remarkable contributions are typically spawned by a passionate commitment to transcendent values such as beauty, truth, wisdom, justice, charity, fidelity, joy, courage and honor.
Gary Hamel
I have seen that traditional approaches to charity and aid don’t solve problems of poverty. In fact, too often they create dependence.
Jacqueline Novogratz
The most helpful piece of advice that I could give to anybody is to select a charity, or create a charity, that you really feel passionate about and if you do, don’t give up.
Evelyn Lauder
A man’s true wealth hereafter is the good he has done to his fellowmen.
Mahatma Gandhi
A man who always speaks the truth wholeheartedly is greater than those who do penance and deeds of charity.
Thiruvalluvar
I am all for charity in judging the men who have occupied the Oval Office over the past seventy years, given the huge responsibilities the president carries across the world.
Nigel Hamilton
Charity is false, futile, and poisonous when offered as a substitute for justice.
Henry George
I believe that charity begins at home. Others will donate to my trust only if I do it first.
Raghava Lawrence
I wouldn’t dream of selling my work. I give them to friends, to charities.
Rod Taylor
I think after a certain amount, I’m going to give almost everything I have to charity. What else can you do with it? You can’t spend it, even if you try. I’ve been trying.
Larry Ellison
I am in a charity out there to stop violence against women.
Caprice Bourret
It is significant that it is as difficult to get charity out of piety as to get reasonableness out of rationalism.
Reinhold Niebuhr
As the funds you will expend have come from many places in the world, so let there be no territorial, religious, or color restrictions on your benefactions, but beware of organized, professional charities with high-salaried executives and a heavy ratio of expense.
Conrad Hilton
I have now lost my barrier between me and death; God grant I may live to be as well prepared for it, as I confidently believe her to have been! If the way to Heaven be through piety, truth, justice and charity, she is there.
Jonathan Swift
My charity is in the business of helping firefighters in any way that we can. For instance, after 9/11 we were the second-fastest charity to raise and distribute money to the widows and surviving family members of the 343 firefighters who died that day.
Denis Leary
Charity bestowed upon those who are worthy of it is like good seed sown on a good soil that yields an abundance of fruits. But alms given to those who are yet under the tyrannical yoke of the passions are like seed deposited in a bad soil. The passions of the receiver of the alms choke, as it were, the growth of merits.
Buddha
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
Khalil Gibran
I like the way Microsoft participates in other-than-mainstream activities, such as academic research, charities, scholarships and connecting the disconnected by providing technology support to underserved people.
Arfa Karim
Clearly, children’s charities struggle to find private sources of money to sustain their benevolent programs.
Dana Rohrabacher
For charity purposes, how do I help? A lot of prospective levers and tools have come into my life.
Eduardo Saverin
You must also remember that the world has God to govern it, and He has not left it to our charity. The Lord God is its Governor and Maintainer, and in spite of these wine fanatics and cigar fanatics, and all sorts of marriage fanatics, it would go on. If all these persons were to die, it would go on none the worse.
Swami Vivekananda
Charity is the note that resolves the discord.
Austin O’Malley
Perhaps a supreme form of charity may be exhibited by one who withholds judgment of another’s acts or conduct, remembering that there is only one who can look into the heart and know the intent-and know the honest desires found therein.
H. Burke Peterson
I, particularly, have a penchant for any charity that supports women and helps young girls thrive.
Kenya Moore
While the word charity connotes a single act of giving, justice speaks to right living, of aligning oneself with the world in a way that sustains rather than exploits the rest of creation. Justice is not a gift; it’s a lifestyle, a commitment to the Jewish concept of tikkun olam—‘repairing the world.’
Rachel Held Evans
Charity never humiliated him who profited from it, nor ever bound him by the chains of gratitude, since it was not to him but to God that the gift was made.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
We do not see faith, hope, and charity as unattainable ideals, but we use them as stout supports of a nation fighting the fight for freedom in a modern civilization.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
As a class, Jews give three times as much money to charity as anybody else, but they feel guilty about their wealth anyway. They simply can’t accept the idea of ever being Republicans.
Jackie Mason
Real generosity is doing something nice for someone who will never find out.
Frank A. Clark
I’ve always thought of myself as a role model even before being a ‘celebrity.’ I’ve always been doing charity work and volunteering in the community since I was 8, so when you do that, I think you just assume that role when you put yourself out there.
Eva Longoria
Charity … is kind, it is not easily provok’d, it thinks no evil, it believes all things, hopes all things.
Cotton Mather
My wife, Tania, is very big on dogs, so I’m always paying out to animal charities.
Eric Idle
To achieve charity, we must submit, become patient, meek, humble. . . . We must exercise the love of God as a power.
F. Enzio Busche
Happiness exists on earth, and it is won through prudent exercise of reason, knowledge of the harmony of the universe, and constant practice of generosity.
Jose Marti
The things we hope for lead us to faith, while the things we hope in lead us to charity. The three qualities faith, hope, and charity working together, grounded on the truth and light of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, lead us to abound in good works
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
Almsgiving, according to the Gospel, is not mere philanthropy; rather it is a concrete expression of charity, a theological virtue that demands interior conversion to love of God and neighbor, in imitation of Jesus Christ, who, dying on the cross, gave his entire self for us.
Pope Benedict XVI
But charity is a very complicated thing. It’s important to find an area where you can really help and you can feel the results. Charity is not like feeding pigeons in the square. It is a process that requires professional management.
Roman Abramovich
Dare to reach out your hand into the darkness, to pull another hand into the light.
Norm Rice
Charity is that sweet-smelling savor of Jesus Christ, which vanishes and is extinguished from the moment that it is exposed.
Jean Baptiste Massillon
I definitely only want to do charity work that I’m hands-on involved in. I don’t want to get a dress on and go to a stupid event.
Erin Heatherton
Once money goes into a charity, it is tax exempt, so that’s a benefit you get. And in return, you have to use the assets of the charity to serve the public good. So if Trump is using this money basically to save his businesses, the money isn’t helping people. That’s a violation of the letter and the spirit of law.
David Fahrenthold
What is in reality cowardice and faithlessness, we call charity, and consider it the part of benevolence sometimes to forgive men’s evil practice for the sake of their accurate faith, and sometimes to forgive their confessed heresy for the sake of their admirable practice.
John Ruskin
Paying good wages is not charity at all-it is the best kind of business.
Henry Ford
Charity plays an important role in upholding the values and advancing the work of the United Nations.
Ban Ki-moon
The truth is, our civilization is not Christian; it is a tragic compound of great ideal and fearful practice, of loving charity and fearful clutching of possessions.
Alan Paton
Charity creates a multitude of sins.
Oscar Wilde
Profit at any cost is one extreme of the spectrum. On the other extreme is unselfish submission for the social good or, more accurately, charity. Somewhere in the middle is peaceful, and much required, coexistence.
Tulsi Tanti
Charity can be the outward expression of faith and hope.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Charity separates the rich from the poor; aid raises the needy and sets him on the same level with the rich.
Evita Peron
How shall we expect charity towards others, when we are uncharitable to ourselves?
Thomas Browne
To be selfless, you would give charity anonymously, walj softly on the earth, and look out for others-even total strangers-before you look out for yourself. For the Arab mind, the self is an obstacle, an impediment, in humanity’s quest foe real progress.
Tahir Shah
I’m not a big golfer, but I love to go get a bucket of balls and just smack the balls around. That’s my type of game. When I do play, it’s mostly in charity tournaments.
Robert Horry
Fool, ’tis in vain from wit to wit to roam: Know, sense, like charity, begins at home.
Alexander Pope
Charity never lacks what is her own, all that she needs for her own security. Not alone does she have it, she abounds with it. She wants this abundance for herself that she may share it with all; and she reserves enough for herself so that she disappoints nobody. For charity is perfect only when full.
Saint Bernard
Make no judgments where you have no compassion.
Anne McCaffrey
The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions – the little, soon forgotten charities of a kiss or a smile, a kind look or heartfelt compliment.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
I quite like the element of charity shops not being sorted out.
Alice Levine
Absolutely nothing brings out the killer instinct in the upper crust of New York Society like a charity function.
Caleb Carr
Historic Royal Palaces is an independent charity without funding from the royal family or the government. But I have met the Queen, she comes to open projects, and she is always very interested.
Lucy Worsley
In a world gone astray from God there is no peace, but it also lacks charity, which is true and perfect love… Nothing is more beautiful than love. Indeed, faith and hope will end when we die, whereas love, that is, charity, will last for eternity.
Pier Giorgio Frassati
When I retired in 1994, I was never tempted to drop down the divisions to carry on playing. In fact, I never kicked a ball again, not even in a charity match.
Gary Lineker
Tactics mean doing what you can with what you have.
Saul Alinsky
We should have charity for what the dead say. We may disapprove of what they say, but we should not insult them and revile them knowing they cannot not defend themselves.
John Lithgow
Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn
 all that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.
Julia Ward Howe
I’ve been active in animal rights and all kinds of environmental stuff and children’s charities over the years.
Martina Navratilova
True charity consists in doing good to those who do us evil, and in thus winning them over.
Alphonsus Liguori
True patriotism is a charity so wide that it covers a nation.
Austin O’Malley
He who waits to do a great deal of good at once will never do anything.
Samuel Johnson
Heart of my heart, were it more,
More would be laid at your feet.
James Joyce
I wasn’t going to a charity event in order to get a picture, in order to get into a magazine.
Tinsley Mortimer
One thing will always secure heaven for us-the acts of charity and kindness with which we have filled our lives. We can do no great things, only small things with great love.
Mother Teresa
You may have heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There’s another day you might want to know about: Giving Tuesday. The idea is pretty straightforward. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, shoppers take a break from their gift-buying and donate what they can to charity.
Bill Gates
People love me or hate me and all I think about is the people that I know and suffer with different causes and carry on my charity work and that’s what keeps me alive really.
Heather Mills
The biggest thing for me with charity is awareness. Obviously as an athlete, I have an opportunity to make people more aware. The average person doesn’t have that opportunity, so the best way is to spare some money, clothing, food – something. Most of us have a little excess of something that we can give.
Landon Donovan
Kind words are the music of the world.
Frederick William Faber
Philanthropy, like charity, must begin at home.
Charles Lamb
Music and philanthropy have a long, benevolent relationship with one another. Record bins are rife with charity singles, and concert history is filled with benefit shows for every imaginable cause. Musicians like to give back.
Shawn Amos
The world does not have time to be with the poor, to learn with the poor, to listen to the poor. To listen to the poor is an exercise of great discipline, but such listening surely is what is required if charity is not to become a hatred of the poor for being poor.
Stanley Hauerwas
Acting is a smaller piece in a big puzzle. There are charity things I want to immerse myself in and want to have the time to go and give back to people who don’t have the opportunities I have. It’s a very important thing to me.
Ashley Greene
I see and hear daily that you of the Clergy preach one against another, teach one contrary to another, inveigh one against another without charity or discretion. Some be too stiff in their old mumpsimus, others be too busy and curious in their new sumpsimus. Thus all men almost be in variety and discord.
Henry VIII of England
Every act of charity, every thought of sympathy, every action of help, every good deed, is taking so much of self-importance away from our little selves and making us think of ourselves as the lowest and the least, and, therefore, it is all good. Here we find that JnГўna, Bhakti, and Karma – all come to one point.
Swami Vivekananda
The only genuine elite is the elite of those men and women who gave their lives to justice and charity.
Sargent Shriver
You are much surer that you are doing good when you pay money to those who work, as the recompense of their labor, than when you give money merely in charity.
Samuel Johnson
I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.
Maya Angelou
The more you give, the more you can give.
Roy T. Bennett
I had no inkling of how crazy the political life would turn out to be. You shuttle between your constituency and Ottawa, you try to make every barbecue, festival, parade and charity run, but sometimes you feel pulled in 14 directions at once.
Michael Ignatieff
Those voices you hear are like the voice of a multitude, which lifts its sound on high; for jubilant praises, offered in simple harmony and charity, lead the faithful to that consonance in which is no discord, and make those who still live on earth sign with heart and voice for the heavenly reward.
Hildegard of Bingen
These two criteria are like the pillars of true love: deeds, and the gift of self.
Pope Francis
Did universal charity prevail, earth would be a heaven, and hell a fable.
Charles Caleb Colton
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.
Nelson Henderson
Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
Gautama Buddha
Some charities treat donors like cash machines. Until now there hasn’t been any effective way for them to provide a more personal or interactive giving experience.
Ben Rattray
I’d much rather leave ВЈ2bn to charity, or ВЈ3bn or ВЈ4bn, than ВЈ1bn. That is my motivation to carry on working as hard as I do.
John Caudwell
I met Jason on a charity walk in 2001, and we got married on a friend’s boat in Panama two years later. It was the perfect wedding for two people who’d already been married and who weren’t teenagers.
Mariella Frostrup
To insure the continuity of philanthropy, we must instill in kids the values and attitudes that will enable them to see charity as a vital part of their lives.
Mary Leonard
It never was our guise to slight the poor, or aught humane despise.
Homer
Our charity begins at home, And mostly ends where it begins.
Horace Smith
I have nothing else to say other than I wasn’t corrupt, unfair, or greedy. I was smart when it came to making decisions for my company, and I wasn’t greedy. I gave to others in charity and donated money to fund programs. I have nothing else to say.
John D. Rockefeller
It is the camp law: people going to their death must be deceived to the very end. This is the only permissible form of charity.
Tadeusz Borowski
The wonderful purity of nature at this season is a most pleasing fact…. In the bare fields and tinkling woods, see what virtue survives. In the coldest and bleakest places, the warmest charities still maintain a foothold.
Henry David Thoreau
Oxytocin infusion increases generosity in unilateral monetary transfers by 80 percent [and] increases donations to charity by 50 percent.
Paul J. Zak
Wisdom: Knowledge rightly applied. We assimilate lots of knowledge. Whether or not we do anything with that knowledge is a measure of our wisdom. That implies some change … and change can be difficult.
Hyrum W. Smith
There’s a big difference between charity and between activism and philanthropy. They’re very different things and I think, you know, everybody should find a passion or a cause that they can really get behind, but it has to be organic.
Eva Longoria
Organized charity itself is. . . the surest sign that our civilization has bred, is breeding and is perpetuating constantly increasing numbers of defectives, delinquents and dependents
Margaret Sanger
I don’t believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is so vertical. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the other person. I have a lot to learn from other people.
Eduardo Galeano
Peace is the work of justice indirectly, in so far as justice removes the obstacles to peace; but it is the work of charity (love) directly, since charity, according to its very notion, causes peace.
Thomas Aquinas
If thou neglectest thy love to thy neighbor, in vain thou professest thy love to God; for by thy love to God, the love to thy neighbor is begotten, and by the love to thy neighbor thy love to God is nourished.
Francis Quarles
I decided to leave most of my wealth to my charitable foundation, which is not to be confused with my charity. My charity helps children directly. The charitable foundation will receive most of my legacy when I die.
John Caudwell
‘Knowledge, without common sense,’ says Lee, is ‘folly; without method, it is waste; without kindness, it is fanaticism; without religion, it is death.’ But with common sense, it is wisdom with method, it is power; with charity, it is beneficence; with religion, it is virtue, and life, and peace.
Austin Farrer
Is the rich world aware of how four billion of the six billion live? If we were aware, we would want to help out, we’d want to get involved.
Bill Gates
Happiness is a wondrous commodity: the more you give, the more you have.
Madame de Stael
Let us strive on to finish the work we are in.
Abraham Lincoln
Some show their kindness to the poor by employing them in their kitchens. Would they not be kinder if they employed themselves there?
Henry David Thoreau
We have tried you citizens; we are trying you now, and you have a couple of dollars for the sorrowing mothers, brothers and sisters by way of a charity gift.
Rose Schneiderman
True charity ought to begin in marriage, for it is a relationship that must be rebuilt every day.
James E. Faust
What I am fighting is the idea that charity is a moral duty and a primary virtue.
Ayn Rand
We are obligated to be more scrupulous in fulfilling the commandment of charity than any other positive commandment because charity is the sign of a righteous man.
Maimonides
There is so much wretchedness in the world, that we may safely take the word of any mortal professing to need our assistance; and, even should we be deceived, still the good to ourselves resulting from a kind act is worth more than the trifle by which we purchase it.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
I have no faith, very little hope, and as much charity as I can afford.
Thomas Huxley
I don’t believe in charity. I believe in solidarity.
Eduardo Galeano
Certainly, it is heaven upon earth, to have a man’s mind move in charity, rest in providence, and turn upon the poles of truth.
Francis Bacon
Unlike solidarity, which is horizontal and takes place between equals, charity is top-down, humiliating those who receive it and never challenging the implicit power relations.
Eduardo Galeano
The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Much of the discussion around how people look at women focuses on culture, as if the media is entirely to blame. As if, without magazines and commenting hosts, we’d all suddenly dress in practical overalls and only judge a person on the quality of their charity work and poetry.
Sara Pascoe
You’re trying to tell me that everything you’ve done is for a good cause. You think that all this killing is worth it because of the results. I’m not sure I agree. Lots of people work for charity; lots of people want to change the world. But they don’t have to behave like you.
Anthony Horowitz
The practice of charity will bind us – will bind all men in one great brotherhood.
Conrad Hilton
In five cases, the Trump Foundation told the IRS that it had given a gift to a charity whose leaders told ‘The Post’ that they had never received it. In two other cases, companies listed as donors to the Trump Foundation told ‘The Post’ that those listings were incorrect.
David Fahrenthold
If all human lives depended upon their usefulness – as might be judged by certain standards – there would be a sudden and terrific mortality in the world.
Gene Tunney
The guiding motive of mankind should be charity towards men, charity towards all animals.
Swami Vivekananda
Freemasonry is a moral order, instituted by virtuous men, with the praiseworthy design of recalling to our remembrance the most sublime truths, in the midst of the most innocent and social pleasures, founded on liberality, brotherly love and charity.
Andrew Jackson
I know a lot of people do charity work, but I always say find something that you are interested in to be able to give back.
P. J. Tucker
In the United States, the wealthy have a tradition of charity. But in Germany, the rich say, ‘We pay taxes. It’s enough.’
Gunter Blobel
As a general rule, the only way people pay $7,500 a table for club fights is when a significant portion of the proceeds is earmarked for charity.
Thomas Hauser
I clear my wardrobe of anything I’m not wearing and give the clothes to charity.
Domenico Dolce
A number of girls of my acquaintance went to school to the nuns of the Congregational Nunnery, or Sisters of Charity, as they are sometimes called.
Maria Monk
If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.
John F. Kennedy
Silence, as someone has said, is the mother of prayer and the nurse of holy thoughts. Silence cuts down on our sins, doesn’t it? We can’t be sinning in so many different ways if we are being quiet before God. Silence nourishes patience, charity, discretion.
Elisabeth Elliot
We live in an interdependent world. Every time you cut off somebody else’s opportunities, you shrink your own horizons.
William J. Clinton
The spiteful tongue strikes a deadly blow at charity in all who hear him speak and, so far as it can, destroys root and branch, not only in the immediate hearers but also in all others to whom the slander, flying from lip to lip, is afterwards repeated.
Bernard of Clairvaux
Whenever I donate a hunting trip for the Children’s Leukemia Foundation, Ronald McDonald Cancer House, all these children’s charities, I offer the anti-hunters an opportunity: if you donate more to the children’s charity than the hunters donate we won’t go hunting.
Ted Nugent
The charity that I work for is the Johnson Cancer Research Foundation at UCLA. I also do work with Stand Up To Cancer.
Maura Tierney
If someone does not have a specific charity they would like to donate to, that’s OK. An undesignated donation would be split up evenly amongst all the charities supported by the Annapolis Area Complex.
Derren Brown
I want to be part of a different kind of celebrity, one that thinks not just about charity but policy.
Wyclef Jean
I wear black for those who never read or listen to the words that Jesus said, about the road to happiness, through love and charity.
Johnny Cash
That great political idea, sanctifying freedom and consecrating it to God, teaching men to treasure the liberties of others as their own and to defend them for the love of justice and charity more than as a claim of right, has been the soul of what is great and good in the progress of the last two hundred years.
Lord Acton
I like to try to give something back to the community because I feel fortunate for how I was raised and how my life turned out. Each year, with the help of my brother, Grant, we run a charity golf tournament to raise money for the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy.
Curtis Joseph
There is an unwritten social rule now that you can harangue the wealthy to give money away, but you mustn’t ask how the money was made. There are no galas celebrating the money people knew better than to seek. Charity begins after profit.
Anand Giridharadas
There is a stupid humility that is quite common and when a person is afflicted with it, he is once and for all disqualified for being a disciple of knowledge.
Friedrich Nietzsche
A wise man should not divulge the formula of a medicine which he has well prepared; an act of charity which he has performed; domestic conflicts; private affairs with his wife; poorly prepared food he may have been offered; or slang he may have heard.
Chanakya
The safest way for a state is to lay down the rule that religion is comprised solely in the exercise of charity and justice, and that the rights of rulers in sacred, no less than in secular matters, should merely have to do with actions, but that every man should think what he likes and say what he thinks.
Baruch Spinoza
Order your soul; reduce your wants; live in charity; associate in Christian community; obey the laws; trust in Providence.
Saint Augustine
There is small merit in mocking goodness, tweaking charity; it is much more comic to deprive people of their petty little existence for no reason at all, for a lark.
Jacques Rig
aut
Charity is another passion of mine and I think it’s important to give back. I’m a lucky guy, I’ve had a great life, I have a great family. I’m very blessed that way, so I believe in giving back a lot.
Nacho Figueras
Trump Foundation, small foundation. People contribute, I contribute. The money goes 100 percent – 100 percent goes to different charities, including a lot of military. I don’t get anything. I don’t buy boats. I don’t buy planes.
Donald Trump
Be the compromise you want to see in the world.
Mahatma Gandhi
I am hoping to be able to lend my support to a Sickle Cell charity in the near future, as I want to try and help raise money and awareness about this disease.
Jourdan Dunn
Let us not only scatter benefits, but even strew flowers for our fellow-travellers, in the rugged ways of this wretched world.
Lord Chesterfield
It is every man’s obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it.
Albert Einstein
Though we may sometimes unintentionally bestow our beneficence on the unworthy, it does not take from the merit of the act. For charity doth not adopt the vices of its objects.
Henry Fielding

Isabelle Fuhrman
Charity isn’t about pity, it is about love.
Mother Teresa
If I ever get out of here, thought of giving it all away to a registered charity.
Paul McCartney
Men have become the tools of their tools.
Henry David Thoreau
Charity is a flower not naturally of earthly growth, and it needs manuring with a promise of profit.
Ouida
In the future society, i.e. the communist society that we want to build, we are not going to establish charity institution, as there shall be no needy or poor, and no alms-giving and alms-taking.
Bhagat Singh
In exchange for our humility and willingness to accept the charity of God, we are given a kingdom. And a beggar’s kingdom is better than a proud man’s delusion.
Donald Miller
It is a sign of maturity… to find explanations in charity.
Flannery O’Connor
I answer that, Even, as in the blessed in heaven there will be most perfect charity, so in the damned there will be the most perfect hate.

Alveda King
Fortune reigns in gifts of the world.
William Shakespeare
On the other hand, Allah directs man to the spiritual purity through the act of giving that is represented by charity that the pious pays as “Zakat” and “Sadakat” almsgiving, and other financial obligations.
Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah
Funding for faith-based charities should] be judged based on performance and results – not religion. Now, if our sin is that our religion can produce the results, then we plead guilty.
Eugene Rivers
The theological virtue of charity is the mysterious power, communicated by grace, to love as God loves.
Michel Quoist
Reform, like charity, must begin at home.

Jay Rock
My wife was big in a lot of work in Toronto with charity work.
Dwane Casey
Faith, hope and charity – faith, hope and charity – those are the tools God gave me. Ad I keep circling around it.
Glenn Beck
Charity must become a fundamental state of mind and heart that guides us in all we do.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Charity is the form, mover, mother and root of all the virtues.
Thomas Aquinas
My wife runs the charity Reprieve, and so rendition, droning, and capital punishment are very much the topics of our dinner table because of that.
Nick Harkaway
The simplest acts of kindness are by far more powerful then a thousand heads bowing in prayer.
Mahatma Gandhi
That’s the trouble with our charities; we are always saving somebody away off, when the fellow next to us ain’t eating.
Will Rogers
To pity distress is but human; to relieve it is Godlike.
Horace Mann
To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it.
Mother Teresa
The next time you’re looking at a charity, don’t ask about the rate of their overhead; ask about the scale of their dreams – their Apple-, Google-, Amazon-scale dreams – how they measure their progress toward those dreams, and what resources they need to make them come true, regardless of what the overhead is.
Dan Pallotta
Do all the good you can, by all the means you can.
John Wesley
It is wicked to withdraw from being useful to the needy, and cowardly to give way to the worthless.
Epictetus
Tax deductible, That’s what you are: Tax deductible. Just like my car, like a gift to local charity, you give my 1040 clarity
Steven Zelin
Be discriminating when dispensing charity. In the name of charity or philanthropy, we tend to do injustice to one’s country.
Sathya Sai Baba
My mother grew up strong. She was a charismatic leader among her peers, staging plays, organizing projects, raising money for charity; she was fiercely protective of her younger brother, with whom she shared a passion for jazz and rock and roll.
Anand Giridharadas
Everybody in life is pursuing money: left, right, charity, nonprofits, everybody’s pursuing money. Everybody wants a raise. Everybody wants to improve their standard of living. Everybody wants to be rich, and especially those that go to Washington.
Rush Limbaugh
Think of giving not only as a duty but as a privilege.
John D. Rockefeller
Charity is taking an ugly girl to lunch.
Warren Beatty
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help someone else.
Confucius
It was a huge shock when my mum was diagnosed. She was 49 when she found a lump in one of her breasts and sensed something was wrong. At the time, we did a breast cancer campaign together. I still do a lot of charity runs.
Suranne Jones
I’m not one of those girls who can think, ‘Right, I’ll put a scarf with that and a little brooch there and maybe a vintage jacket.’ I’m so impressed with girls who look terrific in a little thing they picked up at the local charity shop. I just look scruffy when I try to do vintage.
Sophie Winkleman
Charity unites us to God… There is nothing mean in charity, nothing arrogant. Charity knows no schism, does not rebel, does all things in concord. In charity all the elect of God have been made perfect.
Pope Clement I
Women have the genius of charity. A man gives but his gold; a woman adds to it her sympathy.
Ernest Legouve
In the Catholic Worker we must try to have the voluntary poverty of St. Francis, the charity of St. Vincent de Paul, the intellectual approach of St. Dominic, the easy conversations about things that matter of St. Philip Neri, the manual labor of St. Benedict.
Peter Maurin
I’ve always been into volunteer work and charity work.
Karrueche Tran
I turn to my wife for everything. Her success has never

I turn to my wife for everything. Her success has never affected her as a person – she’s incredibly loyal. We laugh together; we share everything, and she still surprises me. When I saw her in ‘Sweet Charity,’ I was so proud to say, ‘That’s my wife.’
Tom Ellis
A charity approached me to help raise awareness for testicular cancer and there are now some great photos of famous South Africans in their pants helping to spread the word.
Faf de Klerk
If you combine all the spectral rays into a single beam, you get white light; and, if you combine all the virtues into a single beam, you get charity.
Austin O’Malley
Wherever the tree of beneficence takes root, it sends forth branches beyond the sky!
Saadi
Love and charity share the same root word (caritas). How is that possible, when everything in our recent history suggest they cannot coexist, that they are antiethical, that if you put the two of them together in a sack they would bite and scratch and scream, until one of them is torn apart?
Nick Hornby
Doing photo booths and signings, and doing all of that for charity, and having dance parties every night, is so much fun. I like to dance, and I know other people that like to dance. It’s a great way to celebrate the time that we’re all down there together.
Zachary Levi
Not only must we be good, but we must also be good for something.
Henry David Thoreau
Do not commit the error, common among the young, of assuming that if you cannot save the whole of mankind you have failed.
Jan de Hartog
And there is no use whatever, gentlemen, trying to help people who do not help themselves. You cannot push any one up a ladder unless he be willing to climb a little himself.
Andrew Carnegie
If I do any kind of charity work, it catches attention immediately.
Rakhi Sawant
You can’t run from feelings, Charity. You have to face them. Otherwise your future will look just like your past.
Elizabeth Jane Howard
Both fact and logic seem to me to support the view that savings invested in privately owned economic tools of production amount to an act of charity. And further, I believe it to be – as a type – the greatest economic charity of all.
F. A. Harper
My education was paid for by the RAF Benevolent Fund, so a charity school, run like an orphanage, with uniforms and beatings. It was tough, but it got me to Cambridge – like being a chrysalis suddenly becoming a butterfly.
Eric Idle
Philanthropy, charity, giving voluntarily and freely… call it what you like, but it is truly a jewel of an American tradition.
John F. Kennedy
A survey carried out across the U.S. between 2004 and 2006 showed that frequent church- or synagogue-goers are more likely to give money to charity.
Jonathan Sacks
Someone once bought me loads of clothes from a charity shop – and sent them to me in a black bin liner. That was weird. I went through it and it was full of bizarre outfits like Abba costumes.
Suzanne Shaw
I started quite young at school, compering a charity event at an old people’s home. I would do stand up and impressions and enjoyed the laughter. It’s very addictive. It’s a lovely sensation to say something and hear a whole room laugh.
Armando Iannucci
Fidel Castro was a revolutionary spirit from the practical spiritual side of it, but not with “religiosity”; not with prayer and fasting and charity in that sense, but he gave it all, to make humanity better.
Louis Farrakhan
The spirit of the world encloses four kinds of spirits, diametrically opposed to charity–the spirit of resentment, spirit of aversion, spirit of jealousy and the spirit of indifference.
Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
What the poor need is not charity but capital, not caseworkers but coworkers. And what the rich need is a wise, honorable and just way of divesting themselves of their overabundance.
Clarence Jordan

Zhuangzi
I as little fear that God will damn a man that has charity, as I hope that the priests can save one who has not.

Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.
James Madison
Donald Trump was in a tuxedo, standing next to his award: a statue of a palm tree, as tall as a toddler. It was 2010, and Trump was being honored by a charity – the Palm Beach Police Foundation – for his ‘selfless support’ of its cause. His support did not include any of his own money.
David Fahrenthold
Lady, you know no rules of charity, Which renders good for bad, blessings for curses.
William Shakespeare
When I was 16, I’d been cast in ‘Fast Food Nation.’ And while I was playing in a charity baseball game, I ended up breaking my arm about a week before filming was starting.
Glen Powell
Whenever we find ourselves more inclined to persecute than to persuade, we may then be certain that our zeal has more of pride in it than of charity.
Charles Caleb Colton
Charity, vertical, humiliates. Solidarity, horizontal, helps.
Eduardo Galeano
Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice.
Nelson Mandela
Better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
