Charity quotes
Charity
Flatter not thyself in thy faith in God if thou hast not charity for thy neighbor.

- Quarles, Francis
Nothing is so hard for those who abound in riches to conceive how others can be in want.

- Swift, Jonathan
One thing at least I have learnt, he said, "in all my experiments on poor humanity--never to see a man do a wrong thing without feeling I could do the same in his place. I used to pride myself on that once, fool that I was, and call it comprehensiveness. I used to make it an excuse for sitting by and seeing the devil have it all his own way, and call that toleration. I will see now whether I cannot turn the said knowledge to a better account, as common sense, patience, and charity, and yet do work of which neither I nor my country need be ashamed."

- Two Years Ago, chap. xxiii. 1856.
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
The truly generous is the truly wise, and he who loves not others, lives unblest.

- Home, Henry
Benevolence It is the glory of the true religion that it inculcates and inspires a spirit of benevolence. It is a religion of charity, which none other ever was. Christ went about doing good; he set the example to his disciples, and they abounded in it

I have always heard, Sancho, that doing good to base fellows is like throwing water into the sea.

- Cervantes, Miguel De
Charity sees the need, not the cause.

- Proverb, German
LOOKING-GLASS, n. A vitreous plane upon which to display a fleeting show for man's disillusion given. The King of Manchuria had a magic looking-glass, whereon whoso looked saw, not his own image, but only that of the king. A certain courtier who had long enjoyed the king's favor and was thereby enriched beyond any other subject of the realm, said to the king: "Give me, I pray, thy wonderful mirror, so that when absent out of thine august presence I may yet do homage before thy visible shadow, prostrating myself night and morning in the glory of thy benign countenance, as which nothing has so divine splendor, O Noonday Sun of the Universe!" Please with the speech, the king commanded that the mirror be conveyed to the courtier's palace; but after, having gone thither without apprisal, he found it in an apartment where was naught but idle lumber. And the mirror was dimmed with dust and overlaced with cobwebs. This so angered him that he fisted it hard, shattering the glass, and was sorely hurt. Enraged all the more by this mischance, he commanded that the ungrateful courtier be thrown into prison, and that the glass be repaired and taken back to his own palace; and this was done. But when the king looked again on the mirror he saw not his image as before, but only the figure of a crowned ass, having a bloody bandage on one of its hinder hooves -- as the artificers and all who had looked upon it had before discerned but feared to report. Taught wisdom and charity, the king restored his courtier to liberty, had the mirror set into the back of the throne and reigned many years with justice and humility; and one day when he fell asleep in death while on the throne, the whole court saw in the mirror the luminous figure of an angel, which remains to this day.

- Ambrose Bierce
Have thy heart in heaven and thy hands upon the earth. Ascend in piety and descend in charity. For this is the Nature of Light and the way of the children.

- Vaughan, Thomas
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.

- Kundera, Milan
God bless thee; and put meekness in thy mind, love, charity, obedience, and true duty!

- William Shakespeare
Slander is a poison which kills charity, both in the slanderer and the one who listens.

- Bernard, St.
The man who leaves money to charity in his will is only giving away what no longer belongs to him.

- Voltaire
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
A rich man without charity is a rogue; and perhaps it would be no difficult matter to prove that he is also a fool.

- Henry Fielding
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
Too many have dispensed with generosity in order to practice charity.

- Albert Camus
To give requires good sense.

- Ovid
In charity there is no excess.

- Sir Francis Bacon
