Charity quotes
Charity
A man who sees another man on the street corner with only a stump for an arm will be so shocked the first time he'll give him sixpence. But the second time it'll only be a three penny bit. And if he sees him a third time, he'll have him cold-bloodedly handed over to the police.

- Brecht, Bertolt
In charity there is no excess.

- Sir Francis Bacon
Charity sees the need not the cause.

- German Proverb
And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up. [New Test.]

- Bible
Judge thyself with the judgment of sincerity, and thou will judge others with the judgment of charity.

- John Mitchell Mason
With malice toward none, with charity for all, ...let us strive on to finish the work we are in, ...to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

- Abraham Lincoln
Have charity, have patience, have mercy. Never bring a human being, however silly, ignorant, or weak, above all, any little child, to shame and confusion of face. Never by petulance, by suspicion, by ridicule, even by selfish and silly haste, never, above all, by indulging in the devilish pleasure of a sneer, crush what is finest, and rouse up what is coarsest in the heart of any fellow-creature.

- Westminster Sermons. 1872.
What surely is a woman's calling but to teach man? and to teach him what? To temper his fiercer, coarser, more self-assertive nature by the contact of her gentleness, purity, self-sacrifice. To make him see that not by blare of trumpets, not by noise, wrath, greed, ambition, intrigue, puffery, is good and lasting work to be done on earth; but by wise self- distrust, by silent labour, by lofty self-control, by that charity which hopeth all things, believeth all things, endureth all things; by such an example, in short, as women now in tens of thousands set to those around them; such as they will show more and more, the more their whole womanhood is educated to employ its powers without waste and without haste in harmonious unity.

- Lecture on Thrift. 1869.
The truly generous is the truly wise, and he who loves not others, lives unblest.

- Home, Henry
Real charity doesn't care if it's tax-deductible or not.

- Dan Bennett
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.

- Saint-Exupery, Antoine De
Charity. To love human beings in so far as they are nothing. That is to love them as God does.

- Weil, Simone
Should we grieve over a little misplaced charity, when an all knowing, all wise Being showers down every day his benefits on the unthankful and undeserving?

- Atterbury, Francis
Behold I do not give lectures or a little charity, When I give I give myself.

- Walt Whitman
The charity that hastens to proclaim its good deeds, ceases to be charity, and is only pride and ostentation.

- William Hutton
The organized charity, scrimped and iced, in the name of a cautious, statistical Christ.

- O'Reilly, John Boyle
Do not tell me of my obligation to put all poor men in good situations. Are they my poor? I tell thee, thou foolish philanthropist, that I grudge the dollar, the dime, the cent, I give to such men as do not belong to me and to whom I do not belong.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Having leveled my palace, don't erect a hovel and complacently admire your own charity in giving me that for a home.

- Bronte, Emily
Let a man then know his worth, and keep things under his feet. Let him not peep or steal, or skulk up and down with the air of a charity-boy, a bastard, or an interloper.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

- Bible
