Charity quotes by Chanakya
#1. Charity puts and end to poverty; righteous conduct to misery; discretion to ignorance; and scrutiny to fear. #Quote by Chanakya
Charity quotes by Denis Leary
#2. 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. #Quote by Denis Leary
Charity quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#3. Correct or not, he felt himself to be a useless pensioner, an impotent object of charity. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Charity quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#4. We have to get out of this mindset that the rich will do the business and the poor will have the charity. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Charity quotes by Rick Wakeman
#5. 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. #Quote by Rick Wakeman
Charity quotes by Sandra Rogers
#6. The myth that morality and fidelity are old-fashioned and trite can imprison more than just one individual as generations are affected by the choices perpetuated by this lie. The myth that withholding judgment or having charity means that all values are relative and should be given equal importance or loyalty creates a heavy chain that eventually traps a person in doubt and disaffection, leaving him or her to be constantly "driven with the wind and tossed" (see James 1:6). However, confidence that Christ honors those who honor him (see 1 Samuel 2:30) provides an anchor to our souls (see Ether 12:4) whereby we are capable of giving affirmative answers to those who question the "reason of the hope that is in [us]" (1 Peter 3:15). I remember one of my saddest moments as a faculty member at BYU. One of my students came to me in emotional tatters. She had come to BYU looking for a supportive community that shared her values, something she had not enjoyed being the only Mormon in her high school. Instead her peers at BYU teased, sneered at, and demeaned her because she was not willing to watch an R-rated movie. How proud I was of her! Despite the hurt of rejection "by her own," her faith carried her through the social prison created by her peers. To "stand in holy places, and be not moved" (D&C 87:8) in today's world requires faith, courage, poise, and patience. #Quote by Sandra Rogers
Charity quotes by Paul McCartney
#7. If I ever get out of here, thought of giving it all away to a registered charity. #Quote by Paul McCartney
Charity quotes by Peter Hoeg
#8. Never do I close my door behind me without being conscious that I am carrying out an act of charity towards myself. #Quote by Peter Hoeg
Charity quotes by Gerry Harvey
#9. You could go out and give a million dollars to a charity tomorrow to help the homeless. You could argue that it is just wasted. They are not putting anything back into the community. #Quote by Gerry Harvey
Charity quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#10. 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. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Charity quotes by James Schall
#11. As Pope Benedict writes in Caritas in Veritate: Only in truth does charity shine forth, only in truth can charity be authentically lived. Truth is the light that gives meaning and value to charity. That light is both the light of reason and the light of faith, through which the intellect attains to the natural and supernatural truth of charity: it grasps its meaning as gift, acceptance, and communion. Without truth, charity degenerates into sentimentality.[2] #Quote by James Schall
Charity quotes by Francis Bacon
#12. 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. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Charity quotes by George Orwell
#13. If you took 1 Corinthians, chapter
thirteen, and in every verse wrote 'money' instead of 'charity',
the chapter had ten times as much meaning as before. #Quote by George Orwell
Charity quotes by Patrick Henry
#14. That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of the conscience; and it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and charity towards each other. #Quote by Patrick Henry
Charity quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#15. Use your mind to solve problems for others; your heart to feel compassion for others; your mouth to speak for others; your hands to help others; your feet to visit others; your ears to listen to others, and your life to better others. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Charity quotes by Franklin Pierce
#16. READILY and, I trust, feelingly acknowledge the duty incumbent on us all ... to provide for those who, in the mysterious order of Providence, are subject to want and to disease of body or mind; but I cannot find any authority in the Constitution for making the Federal Government the great almoner of public charity throughout the United States ... #Quote by Franklin Pierce
Charity quotes by Edward Gibbon
#17. A generous intercourse of charity united the most distant provinces, and the smaller congregations were cheerfully assisted by the alms of their more opulent brethren. Such an institution, which paid less regard to the merit than to the distress of the object, very materially conduced to the progress of Christianity. The Pagans, who were actuated by a sense of humanity, while they derided the doctrines, acknowledged the benevolence of the new sect. The prospect of immediate relief and of future protection allured into its hospitable bosom many of those unhappy persons whom the neglect of the world would have abandonned to the miseries of want, of sickness, and of old age. There is some reason likewise to believe, that great numbers of infants, who, according to the inhuman practice of the times, had been exposed by their parents, were frequently rescued from death, baptised, educated, and maintained by the piety of the Christians, and at the expense of the public treasure. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Charity quotes by John T. Flynn
#18. The so-called Christian virtues of humility, love, charity, personal freedom, the strong prohibitions against violence, murder, stealing, lying, cruelty-all these are washed away by war. The greatest hero is the one who kills the most people. Glamorous exploits in successful lying and mass stealing and heroic vengeance are rewarded with decorations and public acclaim. #Quote by John T. Flynn
Charity quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#19. The readers of Isabel's journal were affected by the conversations within its covers-if nothing else, the livingroom of their moral imagination became bigger. And this must surely have some bearing on the way they dealt with the world, even in the small transactions of life: awareness of the pain of others here, a word of comfort there. Of course, the admission of kindness to one's life did not spring from any contimplation of the views of Hobbes (selfish Hobbes) and Hume (the good, generous Davey), but it did no harm to know about all of that. And that was where philosophy really did count: it set out the major choices behind all of those practical day-to-day questions of charity and understanding and simple decency; it was the weatherthe backdrop against which those practical matters were debated. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Charity quotes by Bill Gates
#20. 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. #Quote by Bill Gates
Charity quotes by Amos Van Der Merwe
#21. However like all little animals, it has to be nurtured and fed. It needs humour, interest, joy, love, compassion and a healthy bit of charity. It loves the unexpected and the unpredictable. It enjoys new challenges and experiences. Good wine makes it jump around a bit, good food makes it happy. Soft light make it dewy-eyed, happy memories light up its eyes. Good champagne is its preferred liquid. #Quote by Amos Van Der Merwe
Charity quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#22. By deriving it's just powers from the governed, government becomes primarily a mechanism for defense against bodily harm, theft, and involuntary servitude. It cannot claim the power to redistribute money or property nor to force reluctant citizens to perform acts of charity against their will. Government is created by the people. No individual possesses the power to take another's wealth or to force others to do good, so no government has the the right to do such things either. The creature cannot exceed the creator. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Charity quotes by Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
#23. 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. #Quote by Jacques-Benigne Bossuet
Charity quotes by Jane Rule
#24. Charity is a cop-out so traditionally female in its apparent self-effacement that there seems resonant comfort in it. We're no longer supposed to serve the imaginations of men who have dominated us. We are to give up ourselves instead to those whose suffering is greater than our own. Looking down is just as distorting as looking up and as dangerous in perpetuating hierarchies. #Quote by Jane Rule
Charity quotes by George Santayana
#25. Fun is a good thing but only when it spoils nothing better. #Quote by George Santayana
Charity quotes by Ignatius Of The Side Of Jesus Passionist
#26. Jesus allows Himself to be bound, because His bonds are to break the chains of our sins. Jesus becomes a slave for our sakes, through the excess of His charity alone, to free our souls from the slavery of the devil. Offer yourself to Him now, to be entirely His, beseeching Him to bind you fast with the sweet chains of His love. #Quote by Ignatius Of The Side Of Jesus Passionist
Charity quotes by Roma Downey
#27. Having played an angel for so long, you can imagine that I've been asked to endorse any number of causes over the years. Obviously I have to limit my participation with any charity, so I decided to really concentrate on my love of children. #Quote by Roma Downey
Charity quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#28. In a world plagued with commonplace tragedies, only one thing exists that truly has the power to save lives, and that is love. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Charity quotes by Thomas Chandler Haliburton
#29. A woman who wants a charitable heart wants a pure mind. #Quote by Thomas Chandler Haliburton
Charity quotes by Carol Storm
#30. Lady Margaret's icy blue eyes were enough to give Charity chills -- but the brandy in the cut-glass decanter was enough to melt the polar ice caps. Each time she drank, Charity could feel the warmth all the way down to her toes. #Quote by Carol Storm
Charity quotes by Michael Ellsberg
#31. Learning is available at the library for free; under a tree with a dog-eared paperback; at a job with a boss who gives you responsibility and mentorship; while traveling; while leading a cause, movement, or charity; while writing a novel or composing a poem or crafting a song; while interning, apprenticing, or volunteering; while playing a sport or immersing yourself in a language; while starting a business; and now, while watching a TED talk or taking a Khan Academy class ... #Quote by Michael Ellsberg
Charity quotes by Shirley Bassey
#32. In truth, it requires not only a large intellect, but a large heart, to judge with becoming charity of the peculiar temptations of riches. #Quote by Shirley Bassey
Charity quotes by Hari Krishnan Nair
#33. Life is not about rationality but it is all about dignity followed by integrity. Charity is not about amenity but it is all about generosity. From Hari krishnan Nair #Quote by Hari Krishnan Nair
Charity quotes by M. Russell Ballard
#34. It is only when we love God and Christ with all of our hearts, souls, and minds that we are able to share this love with our neighbors through acts of kindness and service ... When this pure love of Christ-or charity-envelops us, we think, feel, and act more like Heavenly Father and Jesus would think, feel, and act. Our motivation and heartfelt desire are like unto that of the Savior. #Quote by M. Russell Ballard
Charity quotes by Thomas Merton
#35. We must be willing to accept the bitter truth that, in the end, we may have to become a burden to those who love us. But it is necessary that we face this also. The full acceptance of our abjection and uselessness is the virtue that can make us and others rich in the grace of God. It takes heroic charity and humility to let others sustain us when we are absolutely incapable of sustaining ourselves. We cannot suffer well unless we see Christ everywhere, both in suffering and in the charity of those who come to the aid of our affliction. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Charity quotes by Ban Ki-moon
#36. Strangely, charity sometimes gets dismissed, as if it is ineffective, inappropriate or even somehow demeaning to the recipient. 'This isn't charity,' some donors take pains to claim, 'This is an investment.' Let us recognize charity for what it is at heart: a noble enterprise aimed at bettering the human condition. #Quote by Ban Ki-moon
Charity quotes by Henry Fielding
#37. 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. #Quote by Henry Fielding
Charity quotes by Anthony Trollope
#38. Considering how much we are all given to discuss the characters of others, and discuss them often not in the strictest spirit of charity, it is singular how little we are inclined to think that others can speak ill-naturedly of us, and how angry and hurt we are when proof reaches us that they have done so. It is hardly too much to say that we all of us occasionally speak of our dearest friends in a manner in which those dearest friends would very little like to hear themselves mentioned, and that we nevertheless expect that our dearest friends shall invariably speak of us as though they were blind to all our faults, but keenly alive to every shade of our virtues. #Quote by Anthony Trollope
Charity quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#39. Let us strive on to finish the work we are in. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Charity quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#40. The goal for most people should not be to feel better, but to get better at feeling. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Charity quotes by Anu Lal
#41. The struggle for a life extracts all our attention, and leaves us blind, deaf, dumb and senseless. The writer, the artist, the musician vanishes, without even the charity of a proper cremation. At this point words become formless sounds, and thoughts run out of paper and jump out of the terra firma and fly in the air, forcing us to find someone to share them with, someone who could understand. The fear of wasting words is the worst kind of it, only a writer knows. #Quote by Anu Lal
Charity quotes by Charity Parkerson
#42. It wasn't a conscious decision nor was it only one bad choice that led him here. It was anger, pure unadulterated fury #Quote by Charity Parkerson
Charity quotes by Nick Spalding
#43. The festivities have a fancy dress theme... inevitable. Here's what i consider to be an undisputed fact: nobody actually likes going to fancy dress parties. If the government declared tomorrow that fancy dress parties were banned, nobody would mind. Why? Because you spend the weeks before the bloody thing worrying about what to wear and how much it's going to cost you. Then you either trawl around the charity shops every afternoon until you find a leather jacket that look slightly like the one Indiana Jones wears, or you throw in the towel and buy one of those mass-produced nasty costumes that come in a bag and fall apart before you've even arrived at the party. Then you realize that everybody's costume is a hundred times better than yours, and you look like the special kid who always stand at the back of the school concert waving at the fire exit. #Quote by Nick Spalding
Charity quotes by Charles Dickens
#44. 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. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Charity quotes by Herman Melville
#45. Hereby perhaps Stubb indirectly hinted, that though man loved his fellow, yet man is a money-making animal, which propensity too often interferes with his benevolence. #Quote by Herman Melville
Charity quotes by Phyllis McGinley
#46. 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. #Quote by Phyllis McGinley
Charity quotes by Thomas S. Monson
#47. May we ever watch over one another, assisting in times of need. Let us not be critical and judgmental, but let us be tolerant, ever emulating the Savior's example of loving-kindness. In that vein, may we willingly serve one another. May we pray for the inspiration to know of the needs of those around us, and then may we go forward and provide assistance. #Quote by Thomas S. Monson
Charity quotes by Magnus Nwagu Amudi
#48. I will keep saying it, the answer is Love, love, love. To any question. Love, care, respect and charity. These are the medicines we seek, they have always been here with us.

The antidote to all our problems is found in this word, Love. #Quote by Magnus Nwagu Amudi
Charity quotes by Virginia Woolf
#49. So, thought Septimus, looking up, they are signalling to me. Not indeed in actual words; that is, he could not read the language yet; but it was plain enough, this beauty, this exquisite beauty, and tears filled his eyes as he looked at the smoke words languishing and melting in the sky and bestowing upon him in their inexhaustible charity and laughing goodness one shape after another of unimaginable beauty and signalling their intention to provide him, for nothing, for ever, for looking merely, with beauty, more beauty! Tears ran down his cheeks. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Charity quotes by Jason Mattera
#50. There's just something about progressive charities and celebrity-backed causes that makes every "charity" they create or touch turn into a money pit or a scandal. #Quote by Jason Mattera
Charity quotes by Ben Shapiro
#51. The greatest obstacle to the welfare state is not greed but private charity that makes the welfare state irrelevant; the greatest obstacle to re-education of children in the name of the collective is allegiance to a higher power. More than that, the greatest obstacle to the state as god is an actual God above the state. #Quote by Ben Shapiro
Charity quotes by Nicholas Roe
#52. Whereas Hunt recommended universal charity, Keats, feeling himself 'in a Mist', relied on a knowing passivity: 'Men should bear with each other - there lives not the Man who may not be cut up, aye hashed to pieces on his weakest side'. #Quote by Nicholas Roe
Charity quotes by Robert L. Millet
#53. Charity is not an act but a way of life, a condition of the heart. #Quote by Robert L. Millet
Charity quotes by Joseph Glanvill
#54. The union of a sect within itself is a pitiful charity; it's no concord of Christians, but a conspiracy against Christ; and they that love one another for their opinionative concurrence, love for their own sakes, not their Lord's. #Quote by Joseph Glanvill
Charity quotes by Francois Rabelais
#55. Because, according to the sage Solomon, wisdom does not enter into a soul that seeks after evil, and knowledge without conscienceis the ruin of the soul, it behooves you to serve, love and fear God and to put all your thoughts and hope in him, and by faith founded in charity, be joined to him, such that you never be separated from him by sin. #Quote by Francois Rabelais
Charity quotes by Mary McAuliffe
#56. What about justice," he asked, "and charity, and resignation, and courage, and everything which makes the human soul to live!" Religion, he continued, "is a spirit, a movement of the heart. You make of it a power, a society, an exterior force, something which struggles with other powers and other societies. To love God and one's fellow man, is it necessary to have so much materiality?"42 #Quote by Mary McAuliffe
Charity quotes by Ellen Cushing
#57. [I]f you don't feel or look rich, you don't necessarily feel the same sense of obligation that a traditional rich person does or should: Noblesse oblige is, after all, dependent on a classical idea of who is and is not the nobility. As that starts to fall away, obligation
to culture, to the future, to each other
begins to disappear too. #Quote by Ellen Cushing
Charity quotes by Angela Thirkell
#58. The subject of money was not mentioned again at the time, but when Miss Todd began going to Mrs Morland as secretary, she insisted on having an account from Dr Ford, much to his annoyance. He persuaded, he blustered, he was almost pathetic, but Miss Todd stood firm. All he could do was talk to her in her front garden instead of in her drawing-romm, and put her fees, which she luckily paid in cash, into his safe, in an envelope marked Property of Miss Anne Todd left with me for safe keeping. #Quote by Angela Thirkell
Charity quotes by Charles Dickens
#59. So may the New Year be a happy one to you, happy to many more whose happiness depends on you! #Quote by Charles Dickens
Charity quotes by Chinonye J. Chidolue
#60. Giving is not favor; it's a form of self-reparation. #Quote by Chinonye J. Chidolue
Charity quotes by Pope John Paul II
#61. Lord Jesus, Who in the Eucharist make your dwelling among us and become our traveling companion, sustain our Christian communities so that they may be ever more open to listening and accepting your Word. May they draw from the Eucharist a renewed commitment to spreading in society, by the proclamation of your Gospel, the signs and deeds of an attentive and active charity #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Charity quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#62. When we want to help the poor, we usually offer them charity. Most often we use charity to avoid recognizing the problem and finding the solution for it. Charity becomes a way to shrug off our responsibility. But charity is no solution to poverty. Charity only perpetuates poverty by taking the initiative away from the poor. Charity allows us to go ahead with our own lives without worrying about the lives of the poor. Charity appeases our consciences. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Charity quotes by Francis Atterbury
#63. 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. #Quote by Francis Atterbury
Charity quotes by Thomas Merton
#64. Most of the world is either asleep or dead. The religious people are, for the most part, asleep. The irreligious are dead. Those who are asleep are divided into two classes, like the Virgins in the parable, waiting for the Bridegroom's coming. The wise have oil in their lamps. That is to say they are detached from themselves and from the cares of the world, and they are full of charity. They are indeed waiting for the Bridegroom, and they desire nothing else but His coming, even though they may fall asleep while waiting for Him to appear. But the others are not only asleep: they are full of other dreams and other desires. Their lamps are empty because they have burned themselves out in the wisdom of the flesh and in their own vanity. When He comes, it is too late for them to buy oil. They light their lamps only after He has gone. So they fall asleep again, with useless lamps, and when they wake up they trim them to investigate, once again, the matters of a dying world. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Charity quotes by Charity Shumway
#65. We get so used to thinking success means on thing,' she said. 'Like you can take a snapshot and see if you have it. It's not like that. It's your whole life, and you have years and years to work with. I always wants to tell young people, don't be so hard on yourself. Life is long. Be patient. #Quote by Charity Shumway
Charity quotes by Alphonsus Liguori
#66. True charity consists in doing good to those who do us evil, and in thus winning them over. #Quote by Alphonsus Liguori
Charity quotes by Oren Arnold
#67. 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. #Quote by Oren Arnold
Charity quotes by Robert Zend
#68. There are too many people, and too few human beings. #Quote by Robert Zend
Charity quotes by Connie Suttle
#69. Breanne, I'm asking you nicely to please reconsider. Mom and Dad are coming to the game. They have a suite reserved and Mom is expecting you." Jayson almost sounded as if he were begging. I wasn't buying it.

"Take Belinda or one of those other women," I huffed. "I don't do much in the leather department. I'm a vegetarian, remember?"

"Mom loves that about you."

"I'm sure she does. Her son, however, finds me grossly inadequate and walks away whenever he gets a chance. As much as I like your mother, I don't feel good about stringing her along. I'm just a front for you - admit it."

"Bree, I'll invite Hank to come, too. I promise one of us will be with you."

"Sure. That sounds so comfortable," I said. "Your mother will wonder what the hell is going on when Hank pays more attention than you do. Frankly, I don't want anything from either of you."

Jayson was still trying to convince me to go to the basketball game the following evening, and he'd shown up at my front door to do it. I'd been grumpy ever since I'd come back after saving Teeg San Gerxon's ass. Sure, it would put the Campiaan Alliance in chaos, but for a blink, or maybe half a blink - I'd considered saving Stellan and his brothers and leaving Teeg behind to be flayed and swallowed by a sandstorm that had destroyed most of Thelik.

"What can I possible do to convince you to come? Donate to Mercy Crossings or some other charity? What?" He'd arrived #Quote by Connie Suttle
Charity quotes by James Cook
#70. Private charity discourages poverty while public subsidies encourage it. #Quote by James Cook
Charity quotes by James Madison
#71. Because the bill vests in the said incorporated church an authority to provide for the support of the poor and the education of poor children of the same, an authority which, being altogether superfluous if the provision is to be the result of pious charity, would be a precedent for giving to religious societies as such a legal agency in carrying into effect a public and civil duty. #Quote by James Madison
Charity quotes by John L. Lewis
#72. The steel workers have now buried their dead, while the widows weep and watch their orphaned children become objects of public charity. The murder of these unarmed men has never been publicly rebuked by any authoritative officer of the state or federal government. #Quote by John L. Lewis
Charity quotes by Charles G. Addison
#73. They are to be constant in the exercise of charity and almsgiving, to have a watchful care over all sick brethren, and to support and sustain all old men. #Quote by Charles G. Addison
Charity quotes by Bill Gates
#74. My mom was on the United Way group that decides how to allocate the money and looks at all the different charities and makes the very hard decisions about where that pool of funds is going to go. #Quote by Bill Gates
Charity quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#75. Dogmas of every kind put assertion in the place of reason and give rise to more contention, bitterness, and want of charity than any other influence in human affairs. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Charity quotes by Germany Kent
#76. Your giving does not have to reflect mine. Be your own kind of ripple. If you have some extra time, give it to a shelter. If you have a special trade, mentor or give advice. If you have a business, give free samples. If you have arms, give hugs. Just give in your own capacity, where you are and watch what a difference that one gesture can make. #Quote by Germany Kent
Charity quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#77. Charity opens the heart. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Charity quotes by Gerry Harvey
#78. I've given away tens of millions of dollars over the years - probably to almost every charity in Australia. #Quote by Gerry Harvey
Charity quotes by William MacAskill
#79. One additional unit of income can do a hundred times as much to the benefit the extreme poor as it can to benefit you or I [earning the typical US wage of $28,000 or £18,000 per year]. [I]t's not often you have two options, one of which is a hundred times better than the other. Imagine a happy hour where you could either buy yourself a beet for $5 or buy someone else a beer for 5¢. If that were the case, we'd probably be pretty generous – next round's on me! But that's effectively the situation we're in all the time. It's like a 99% off sale, or buy one, get ninety-nine free. It might be the most amazing deal you'll see in your life. #Quote by William MacAskill
Charity quotes by Martin Luther
#80. Fight vigorously against the wolves, but on behalf of the sheep, not against the sheep. And this you may do by inveighing against the laws and lawgivers, and yet at the same time observing these laws with the weak, lest they be offended, until they shall themselves recognize the tyranny, and understand their own liberty. #Quote by Martin Luther
Charity quotes by George W. Bush
#81. We have set out to promote the work of community and faith-based charities. Government cannot be replaced by charities, but it can welcome them as partners instead of resenting them as rivals. #Quote by George W. Bush
Charity quotes by George Santayana
#82. With you a part of me hath passed away;
For in the peopled forest of my mind
A tree made leafless by this wintry wind
Shall never don again its green array.
Chapel and fireside, country road and bay,
Have something of their friendliness resigned;
Another, if I would, I could not find,
And I am grown much older in a day.
But yet I treasure in my memory
Your gift of charity, and young hearts ease,
And the dear honour of your amity;
For these once mine, my life is rich with these.
And I scarce know which part may greater be,
What I keep of you, or you rob from me. #Quote by George Santayana
Charity quotes by Daniel Defoe
#83. A near View of Death would soon reconcile Men of good Priciples one to another, and that it is chiefly owing to our easy Scituation in Life, and our putting these Things far from us, that our Breaches are formented, ill Blood continued, Prejudices, Breach of Charity and of Christian Union so much kept and so far carry'd on among us, as it is: Another Plague Year would reconcile all these Differences, a close conversing with Death, or the Diseases that threaten Death, would scum off the Gall from our Tempers, remove the Animosities among us, and bring us to see with differing Eyes, than those which we look'd on Things with before #Quote by Daniel Defoe
Charity quotes by Alessandro Manzoni
#84. Let us offer our hearts, wretched and empty as they are, to God, that He may be pleased to fill them with that charity which amends the past, which ensures the future, which fears and trusts, weeps and rejoices in its knowledge; which becomes in every instance the virtue of which we stand in need. #Quote by Alessandro Manzoni
Charity quotes by Davy Crockett
#85. I want people to be able to get what they need to live: enough food, a place to live, and an education for their children. Government does not provide these as well as private charities and businesses. #Quote by Davy Crockett
Charity quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#86. My other hobby, because I just love any job with a gavel, is auctioneer. And I so often have presided over charity auctions in New York that many years ago Sotheby's sent me my own gavel. Now, the Sotheby's gavel is infinitely more elegant
it came in a little velvet bag, with "Sotheby's" inscribed in gold. It hangs in my library. I feel that everyone has occasion to use a gavel at various times everyday, they just don't think of it. #Quote by Fran Lebowitz
Charity quotes by Natsume Sōseki
#87. The truth is that by the infinite flexibility of interpretation one can get away with anything. Some people perpetrate fraud in the name of charity, others justify their obvious lunacy by calling it inspiration. #Quote by Natsume Sōseki
Charity quotes by Fauja Singh
#88. There are two noble things in life: one to do charity and other to look after your body, #Quote by Fauja Singh
Charity quotes by Padre Pio
#89. Joy, with peace, is the sister of charity. Serve the Lord with laughter. #Quote by Padre Pio
Charity quotes by Thomas Munro
#90. If a good system of agriculture, unrivaled manufacturing skill, a capacity to produce whatever can contribute to either convenience or luxury, schools established in every village for teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic, the general practice of hospitality and charity amongst each other, and above all, a treatment of the female sex full of confidence, respect, and delicacy, are among the signs which denote a civilized people – then the Hindus are not inferior to the nations of Europe, and if civilization is to become an article of trade between England and India, I am convinced that England will gain by the import cargo. #Quote by Thomas Munro
Charity quotes by Elizabeth Berkley
#91. I think often times when people choose to be part of a charity; it's usually because something is very personal. #Quote by Elizabeth Berkley
Charity quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#92. Stressing the necessity of personal holiness should not undermine in any way our confidence in justification by faith alone. The best theologians and the best theological statements have always emphasized the scandalous nature of gospel grace and the indispensable need for personal holiness. Faith and good works are both necessary. But one is the root and the other the fruit. God declares us just solely on account of the righteousness of Christ credited (imputed) to us (2 Cor. 5:21). Our innocence in God's sight is in no way grounded in works of love or acts of charity. Whereas a Catholic might answer the question "What must I do to be saved?" by saying, "Repent, believe, and live in charity,"7 the apostle Paul answers the same exact question with, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household" (Acts 16:31). Getting right with God is entirely and only dependent upon faith.8 #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Charity quotes by Judith McNaught
#93. Is there a bird among them, dear boy?" Charity asked innocently, peering not at the things on the desk, but at his face, noting the muscle beginning to twitch at Ian's tense jaw.
"No."
"Then they must be in the schoolroom! Of course," she said cheerfully, "that's it. How like me, Hortense would say, to have made such a silly mistake."
Ian dragged his eyes from the proof that his grandfather had been keeping track of him almost from the day of his birth-certainly from the day when he was able to leave the cottage on his own two legs-to her face and said mockingly, "Hortense isn't very perceptive. I would say you are as wily as a fox."
She gave him a little knowing smile and pressed her finger to her lips. "Don't tell her, will you? She does so enjoy thinking she is the clever one."
"How did he manage to have these drawn?" Ian asked, stopping her as she turned away.
"A woman in the village near your home drew many of them. Later he hired an artist when he knew you were going to be somewhere at a specific time. I'll just leave you here where it's nice and quiet." She was leaving him, Ian knew, to look through the items on the desk. For a long moment he hesitated, and then he slowly sat down in the chair, looking over the confidential reports on himself. They were all written by one Mr. Edgard Norwich, and as Ian began scanning the thick stack of pages, his anger at his grandfather for this outrageous invasion of his privacy slowly became amusement. #Quote by Judith McNaught
Charity quotes by Khem Veasna
#94. 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. #Quote by Khem Veasna
Charity quotes by Maria Edgeworth
#95. It is quite fitting that charity should begin at home ... but then it should not end at home; for those that help nobody will find none to help them in time of need. #Quote by Maria Edgeworth
Charity quotes by Phil Donahue
#96. The system of volunteerism is divisive. It pits one charity against the others for the charity dollar. #Quote by Phil Donahue
Charity quotes by Conrad Rudolph
#97. Bernard undoubtedly was truly concerned with the well-being of the poor ... but the approach here is again largely from a monastic standpoint. It is not just a question of art or the care of the poor. It is also a question of debunking the traditional social justification of excessive art - that it was somehow similar to almsgiving ... In the same way that art for the honor of God is not the business of the monk since the monk has already offered the most precious gift one can to God, so there is no need for a rationale which sees these lesser gifts as a worthy form of honor for a monk to convey, a form of honor which as a spiritual undertaking is ultimately contradictory to the dictates of charity. #Quote by Conrad Rudolph
Charity quotes by George Whitefield
#98. For, if we have not charity, we are not Christians: charity is the great duty of Christians. #Quote by George Whitefield
Charity quotes by Paul Fleischman
#99. [Community gardens] were oases in the urban landscape of fear, places where people could safely offer trust, helpfulness, charity, without need of an earthquake or hurricane...Community gardens are places where people rediscover not only generosity, but the pleasure of coming together. I salute all those who give their time and talents to rebuilding that sense of belonging. #Quote by Paul Fleischman
Charity quotes by William Wilberforce
#100. The instructive admonitions, "give an account of thy stewardship," - "occupy till I come;" are forgotten. Thus the generous and wakeful spirit of Christian Benevolence, seeking and finding every where occasions for its exercise, is exploded, and a system of decent selfishness is avowedly established in its stead; a system scarcely more to be abjured for its impiety, than to be abhorred for its cold insensibility to the opportunities of diffusing happiness. #Quote by William Wilberforce
Charity quotes by Dorothy Day
#101. The Gospel takes away our right forever, to discriminate between the deserving and the undeserving poor. #Quote by Dorothy Day
Charity quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#102. Kindness is the queen of charity. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Charity quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#103. Never give up.
This applies to more than goals and dreams, it is a maxim for basic daily struggles. It shapes one's life, including the will to continue to live. It supports love and committed relationships; it bolsters hope, faith, and charity; it is power in every area of existence. Never give up on anything or anyone of any worth, especially yourself. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Charity quotes by Hadewijch
#104. First the lover must learn charity and keep God's law. Then he shall be blessed a hundredfold, and he shall do great things without great effort, and bear all pain without suffering. And so his life will surpass human reason indeed. #Quote by Hadewijch
Charity quotes by Mata Amritanandamayi
#105. 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. #Quote by Mata Amritanandamayi
Charity quotes by William Shakespeare
#106. I am not in the giving vein today. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Charity quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#107. One mind is enough for you to achieve intelligence.
One heart is enough for you to achieve kindness.
One soul is enough for you to achieve goodness.

One world is enough for us to achieve peacefulness. One life is enough for us to achieve happiness. One God is enough for us to achieve transcendence. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Charity quotes by Dan Pearce
#108. Don't we get it? To put our arm around someone who is gay, someone who has an addiction, somebody who lives a different lifestyle, someone who is not what we think they should be ... doing that has nothing to do with enabling them or accepting what they do as okay by us. It has nothing to do with encouraging them in their practice of what you or I might feel or believe is wrong vs right.
It has everything to do with being a good human being. A good person. A good friend. #Quote by Dan Pearce
Charity quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#109. Choose altruism, because selfishism is a lonely, cold, dark hole. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Charity quotes by Ferguson Jenkins
#110. Nobody on my staff is on salary. The money goes straight to the charities. #Quote by Ferguson Jenkins
Charity quotes by Anna Brownell Jameson
#111. I have much more confidence in the charity which begins in the home and diverges into a large humanity, than in the world-wide philanthropy which begins at the outside of our horizon to converge into egotism. #Quote by Anna Brownell Jameson
Charity quotes by Charles Lamb
#112. Philanthropy, like charity, must begin at home. #Quote by Charles Lamb
Charity quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#113. Broken people have an irresistible urge to try to 'fix' the world. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Charity quotes by Pope Pius XI
#114. Quite agreeable, of course, was this state of things to those who thought it in their abundant riches the result of inevitable economic laws and accordingly, as if it were for charity to veil the violation of justice which lawmakers not only tolerated but at times sanctioned, wanted the whole care of supporting the poor committed to charity alone. #Quote by Pope Pius XI
Charity quotes by Nathan Eldon Tanner
#115. It is easy to do things for our own families and loved ones, but to give of our substance for the stranger who is in need is the real test of our charity and love for our fellowmen. #Quote by Nathan Eldon Tanner
Charity quotes by Hannah More
#116. Bible Christianity is what I love ... a Christianity practical and pure, which teaches holiness, humility, repentance and faith in Christ; and which after summing up all the Evangelical graces, declares that the greatest of these is charity . #Quote by Hannah More
Charity quotes by Paul Theroux
#117. A British traveler remarked, 'There are [fashions in Guatemala] which it would require more than common charity to speak of with respect ... '
FILL IN YOUR OWN GRIPES! ;-) #Quote by Paul Theroux
Charity quotes by Charity Bradford
#118. Magic is in your blood and you'll find yourself again soon enough.
Landry Sutton #Quote by Charity Bradford
Charity quotes by Andrew Carnegie
#119. Those who would administer [charity] wisely must, indeed, be wise, for one of the serious obstacles to the improvement of our race is indiscriminate charity. It were better for mankind that the millions of the rich were thrown into the sea than spent to encourage the slothful, the drunken, the unworthy. Of every thousand dollars spent in so-called charity today, it is probable that nine hundred and fifty dollars is unwisely spent - so spent, indeed, as to produce the very evils which it hopes to mitigate or cure. #Quote by Andrew Carnegie
Charity quotes by Agnes Repplier
#120. It is not begging but the beggar, who has forfeited favor with the elect. #Quote by Agnes Repplier
Charity quotes by Anne  Michaud
#121. In the 1960s, Valerie (Hobson) Profumo became the first show-business mother to talk publicly about Down's syndrome. She was instrumental in founding Three Roses, England's first charity to support families with Down's children. #Quote by Anne Michaud
Charity quotes by Herman Melville
#122. Charity, like poetry, should be cultivated, if only for its being graceful. #Quote by Herman Melville
Charity quotes by Saint Augustine
#123. Order your soul; reduce your wants; live in charity; associate in Christian community; obey the laws; trust in Providence. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Charity quotes by Elbert Hubbard
#124. Charity: a thing that begins at home, and usually stays there. #Quote by Elbert Hubbard
Charity quotes by India Drummond
#125. His mum had loved her ornaments, as she called them, but when she died, his dad waited about a week before boxing them up and giving them to a charity shop. "I loved your mum, Quinton," he'd said, "but I hate them fuckin' porcelaincats. #Quote by India Drummond
Charity quotes by Maximus The Confessor
#126. To harbor no envy, no anger, no resentment against an offender is still not to have charity for him. It is possible, without any charity, to avoid rendering evil for evil. But to render, spontaneously, good for evil - such belongs to a perfect spiritual love. #Quote by Maximus The Confessor
Charity quotes by Janice Galloway
#127. That was probably how religion worked. The triumph of loneliness over intelligence. And why not? Why shouldn't religion be exactly the same as everything else? Faith, hope and charity: as relevant as serving suggestions. #Quote by Janice Galloway
Charity quotes by Elizabeth Jane Howard
#128. You can't run from feelings, Charity. You have to face them. Otherwise your future will look just like your past. #Quote by Elizabeth Jane Howard
Charity quotes by John Milton
#129. Then wilt thou not be loath To leave this Paradise, but shalt possess A Paradise within thee, happier far. #Quote by John Milton
Charity quotes by Tom Golisano
#130. Anyone who has been as successful as I have should want to share those resources. Why not give some of it to charity? #Quote by Tom Golisano
Charity quotes by Rand Paul
#131. What my bill would do would be only for refugees going forward. So I haven't taken a position on sending anyone home. But I have taken the position that we have a lot of problems here in our country. And that one of the things that we do - charity is about giving your own money. Charity isn't giving someone else's money. #Quote by Rand Paul
Charity quotes by Francis Atterbury
#132. Even the wisdom of God hath not suggested more pressing motives, more powerful incentives to charity, than these, that we shall be judged by it at the last dreadful day. #Quote by Francis Atterbury
Charity quotes by Vincent De Paul
#133. That's what our Rules engage us to do, to help poor persons, our lords and masters. #Quote by Vincent De Paul
Charity quotes by Debasish Mridha
#134. The highest form of charity is giving education with love. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Charity quotes by Isaac Barrow
#135. 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. #Quote by Isaac Barrow
Charity quotes by Libba Bray
#136. That's it," Mabel said, getting up. She tossed her napkin on the table. "No. That is not right. I don't know what you just said, but whatever it was, I'm pretty certain it was pure hokum. I don't want to dance. I don't want to hear about your plans for a summer house. I am not your sister. And if I were your sister, I'd have to tell people you'd been adopted as an act of charity. Please, don't get up. #Quote by Libba Bray
Charity quotes by Gerald Durrell
#137. 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. #Quote by Gerald Durrell
Charity quotes by Mark Twain
#138. Let us draw the curtain of charity over the rest of this scene #Quote by Mark Twain
Charity quotes by John Quincy Adams

Charity quotes by Chelsea Handler
#142. I think it's important to be involved with charities that don't necessarily reflect what you're dealing with in your life. #Quote by Chelsea Handler
Charity quotes by Paul J. Zak
#143. Oxytocin infusion increases generosity in unilateral monetary transfers by 80 percent [and] increases donations to charity by 50 percent. #Quote by Paul J. Zak
Charity quotes by Meher Baba
#144. Forgiveness is the best charity. (It is easy to give the poor money and goods when one has plenty, but to forgive is hard; but it is the best thing if one can do it. #Quote by Meher Baba
Charity quotes by Sulaiman Abdul Aziz Al Rajhi
#145. I distributed my wealth among my children and set aside a portion for endowment to run charity projects. #Quote by Sulaiman Abdul Aziz Al Rajhi
Charity quotes by Ramona Ausubel
#146. She did not try to explain aging or love and how much harder it was to keep trusting beauty the later it got. How, though she was only twenty-eight years old, she seemed to have passed into the long slide during which time a woman became less and less valuable, and to keep her around became an act of charity rather than pleasure. #Quote by Ramona Ausubel
Charity quotes by Josemaria Escriva
#147. Don't judge without having heard both sides. Even persons who think themselves virtuous very easily forget this elementary rule of prudence. #Quote by Josemaria Escriva
Charity quotes by Walter Scott
#148. 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. #Quote by Walter Scott
Charity quotes by Elizabeth Keckley
#149. Poor dusky children of slavery, men and women of my own race-the transition from slavery to freedom was too sudden for you! The bright dreams were too rudely dispelled; you were not prepared for the new life that opened before you, and the great masses of the North learned to look upon your helplessness with indifference-learned to speak of you as an idle, dependent race. Reason should have prompted kinder thoughts. Charity is ever kind. #Quote by Elizabeth Keckley
Charity quotes by Jennette McCurdy
#150. Any charity that aids or supports trying to find a cure for cancer is very close to my heart. My mom had cancer multiple times, so it's something that I can relate to. #Quote by Jennette McCurdy
Charity quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#151. 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. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Charity quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#152. There can be no Christianity where there is no charity #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Charity quotes by G. Edward Griffin
#153. Collectivists would have you believe that individualism is merely another word for selfishness, because individualists oppose welfare and other forms of coercive redistribution of wealth, but just the opposite is true. Individualists advocate true charity, which is the voluntary giving of their own money, while collectivists advocate the coercive giving of other people's money; which, of course, is why it is so popular. #Quote by G. Edward Griffin
Charity quotes by Ziggy Marley
#154. URGE is a grassroots charity. We organized to get some incubators to give to the hospital for the kids. We donate money to orphanages. #Quote by Ziggy Marley
Charity quotes by Evelyn Underhill
#155. The spiritual life is a stern choice. It is not a consoling retreat from the difficulties of existence; but an invitation to enter fully into that difficult existence, and there apply the Charity of God and bear the cost. #Quote by Evelyn Underhill
Charity quotes by Mata Amritanandamayi
#156. Children, we should simplify our life's needs and use the resulting savings for charity. #Quote by Mata Amritanandamayi
Charity quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#157. Anthropology, she thought, like charity, surely begins at home. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Charity quotes by Saint Francis De Sales
#158. When charity requires it we must freely and mildly communicate to our neighbor not only what is his instruction, but also what is profitable for his consolation. #Quote by Saint Francis De Sales
Charity quotes by Jeffrey R. Holland
#159. The Book of Mormon is the keystone of our religion primarily because it is the most extended and definitive witness we have of the Lord Jesus Christ
of our Alpha and Omega, the Key Stone, the Chief Cornerstone of the eternal gospel. Christ is our salvation, and the Book of Mormon declares that message unequivocally to the world. In its message of faith in Christ, hope in Christ, and charity in Christ, the Book of Mormon is God's "new covenant" to his children
for the last time. #Quote by Jeffrey R. Holland
Charity quotes by John Caudwell
#160. I make no apology for wanting to make a profit - the more I make, the bigger percentage will go to charity. So most of the work I do now is motivated by that. #Quote by John Caudwell
Charity quotes by Isam Bachiri
#161. A smile is a charity like a million bucks to the refugee. #Quote by Isam Bachiri
Charity quotes by Austin Farrer
#162. '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. #Quote by Austin Farrer
Charity quotes by Imbolo Mbue
#163. Cindy had told her to take as much as she wanted from the storage space in the attic because whatever she didn't take was going to charity, so Neni had cheerfully obliged, taking an old Louis Vuitton carry-on suitcase with a broken zipper, jam-packing it like roasted peanuts in a liquor bottle, and tying it shut with one of her blouses. #Quote by Imbolo Mbue
Charity quotes by Cindy Margolis
#164. I felt proud of myself. I worked out really hard, and the reason I wanted to do it the most is because I am posing for a purpose: a portion of the proceeds from each issue sold is going to go to my charity. #Quote by Cindy Margolis
Charity quotes by Tony Dovale
#165. Until Africa changes it's Mindset - It will forever be a "basket case" looking for international support, funding and charity.
We need to Rethink Innovation #Quote by Tony Dovale
Charity quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#166. The conviction that the world, and therefore man too, is something which really ought not to exist is in fact calculated to instil in us indulgence towards one another: for what can be expected of beings placed in such a situation as we are? From this point of view one might indeed consider that the appropriate form of address between man and man ought to be, not monsieur, sir, but fellow sufferer, compagnon de misères. However strange this may sound it corresponds to the nature of the case, makes us see other men in a true light and reminds us of what are the most necessary of all things: tolerance, patience, forbearance and charity, which each of us needs and which each of us therefore owes. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Charity quotes by Cesar Chavez
#167. So they are trying to do something about it. They are not doing it by seeking charity. They are not begging at the welfare office. They are not, like many of their employers, lobbying the halls of Congress with their gold plated tin cups asking to be paid for not growing crops. They are trying to do it in the way that millions of other Americans have shown is the right way-organization, unionism, collective bargaining. #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Charity quotes by E. M. Forster
#168. Yet complicated people were getting wet - not only the shepherds. For instance, the piano-tuner was sopping. So was the vicar's wife. So were the lieutenant and the peevish damsels in his Battlesden car. Gallantry, charity, and art pursued their various missions, perspiring and muddy, while out on the slopes beyond them stood the eternal man and the eternal dog, guarding eternal sheep until the world is vegetarian. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Charity quotes by Kathryn Lasky
#169. To find one's special quality One must lead a life of deep humility. To serve in this way Never question but obey Is the blessing of St Aggie's charity. - The owls of St. Aegolius #Quote by Kathryn Lasky

Charity quotes by Edwina Gateley
#173. And so you carried
life for the world, Mary,
as you fled,
to protect that very life
from threats of death.
Joining the world's mass of displaced people
you became
Refugee,
Alien,
Immigrant,
Homeless,
and settled in a foreign land--
the only place
to safely nurture
your fragile dream.
Like so many other women
who flee violence,
clutching their babies,
you crossed the border defining you
a stranger,
dependent on foreign aid, welfare
and hand-outs--
the charity of others--
to feed the Son of God. #Quote by Edwina Gateley
Charity quotes by Clarence Darrow
#174. Physical deformity, calls forth our charity. But the infinite misfortune of moral deformity calls forth nothing but hatred and vengeance. #Quote by Clarence Darrow
Charity quotes by Louis Tomlinson
#175. I feel very honored to have been asked to sign for Rovers, and being able to help both the club and the amazing charity Bluebell Wood is what it's all about. #Quote by Louis Tomlinson
Charity quotes by George Soros
#176. In my view, philanthropy goes against the grain; therefore it generates a lot of hypocrisy and many paradoxes. Here are some examples: Philanthropy is supposed to be devoted to the benefit of others, but philanthropists are primarily concerned with their own benefit; philanthropy is supposed to help people, yet it often makes people dependent and turns them into objects of charity; applicants tell foundations what they want to hear, then proceed to do what the applicant wants to do. #Quote by George Soros
Charity quotes by Muhammad Ali
#177. 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. #Quote by Muhammad Ali

Charity quotes by Scott Hahn
#179. March 4 CHARITY is being rescued by the LORD I love you just as the Father loves me. ~ John 15:9 Someone asked an old chief "Why're you always talking about Jesus?" The chief didn't say anything. Instead, he collected some dry grass and twigs and put them into a circle. Next he caught a caterpillar, feeding on a nearby clump of weeds. He placed it inside the circle. Then, he took a match and set fire to the dry grass and the twigs. As the fire blazed up, the caterpillar began to search for an escape. At this point the old chief extended his finger to the caterpillar. Instantly, it climbed on to it. He said, "That's what Jesus did for me. I was like the caterpillar, without hope. Then Jesus rescued me. How can I not talk about my Savior's love and mercy?" ~ Mark Link, S.J. How grateful are you for what Jesus did for us? How do you show it concretely? It wasn't the nails that held Jesus on the cross but his love for us. ~ Author unknown #Quote by Scott Hahn

Charity quotes by Hugh Kingsmill
#185. Charity may cover a multitude of sins, but success transmutes them into virtues. #Quote by Hugh Kingsmill
Charity quotes by Amos Oz
#186. All the profits that Papa made by the sweat of his brow from his mill she extorted from him and spent the lot on expensive dressmakers who made her luxurious dresses. But she was too mean to wear them: she saved them up at the back of her wardrobe, and most of the time she wore an old mouse-coloured housecoat round the house. Only a couple of times a year she got herself up like the Tsar's carriage to go to synagogue or to some charity ball, so the whole town could see her and burst with envy. Yet she shouted at us that we were ruining Papa. Fania, #Quote by Amos Oz
Charity quotes by San Juan De La Cruz
#187. Hence they would be very foolish who would think that God is failing them because of their lack of spiritual sweetness and delight, or would rejoice, thinking they possess God because of the presence of this sweet ness. And they would be more foolish if they were to go in search of this sweetness in God and rejoice and be detained in it. With such an attitude they would no longer be seeking God with their wills grounded in the emptiness of faith and charity, but they would be seeking spiritual satisfaction and sweetness, which are creatures, by following after their own pleasure and appetite. And thus they would no longer be loving God purely, above all things, which means centering all the strength of one's will on him. #Quote by San Juan De La Cruz
Charity quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#188. Love is the highest prayer; as God is love, God cannot ignore Himself. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Charity quotes by Joshua Ferris
#189. The most unfortunate thing about being an atheist wasn't the loss of God and all the comfort and reassurance of God - no small things - but the loss of a vital human vocabulary. Grace, charity, transcendence: I felt them as surely as any believer, even if we differed on the ultimate cause, and yet I had no right words for them. #Quote by Joshua Ferris
Charity quotes by John Piper
#190. O, how easy it is to do religious things if other people are watching! Preaching, praying, attending church, reading the bible, acts of kindness and charity-they all take on a certain pleasantness of the ego if we know that others will find out about them and think well of us. It is a deadly addiction for esteem that we have. #Quote by John Piper
Charity quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#191. You are no greater than your actions to those who don't matter. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Charity quotes by Desiderius Erasmus
#192. 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. #Quote by Desiderius Erasmus
Charity quotes by Simon S. Tam
#193. Your uniqueness is your greatest strength, not how well you emulate others. #Quote by Simon S. Tam
Charity quotes by Kailin Gow
#194. Charity is Equal Opportunity. Anyone who wishes to give should be allowed to give. I once came upon an author hosting a charitable event who wouldn't allowed certain authors to participate in the event. Only the authors she wished to be associated with so she can ride on their coattails were allowed to participate. This is not charity. It builds resentment towards the charity she was supposedly representing. She became a NY Times bestselling author because of that association, but is it worth the deceit to get there? - Strong by Kailin Gow on Charities #Quote by Kailin Gow
Charity quotes by Francis Bacon
#195. 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. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Charity quotes by David Graeber
#196. Usury was seen above all as an assault on Christian charity, on Jesus's injunction to treat the poor as they would treat the Christ himself, giving without expectation of return and allowing the borrower to decide on recompense (Luke 6:34 #Quote by David Graeber
Charity quotes by Victor Hugo
#197. Cheerfulness is like money well expended in charity; the more we dispense of it, the greater our possession. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Charity quotes by Andrew Mitchell
#198. My argument is that charity does indeed start at home, but it doesn't stop there. #Quote by Andrew Mitchell
Charity quotes by John Redwood
