Charity quotes

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

- Walt Whitman

Not he who has much is rich, but he who gives much.

- Fromm, Erich

Posthumous charities are the very essence of selfishness, when bequeathed by those who. when alive, would not have contributed.

- Colton, Charles Caleb

Charity is the scope of all God's commands.

- Chrysosatom, St. John

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

Prejudice is the conjurer of imaginary wrongs, strangling truth, overpowering reason, making strong men weak and weak men weaker. God give us the large hearted charity which "bearth all things, believe all things, hope all things, endure all things," which "thinks no evil."

- Macduff

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.

- Durrell, Lawrence

Success is like war and like charity in religion, it covers a multitude of sins.

- Napier, Sir Charles

The presence of a noble nature, generous in its wishes, ardent in its charity, changes the lights for us: we begin to see things again in their larger, quieter masses, and to believe that we too can be seen and judged in the wholeness of our character.

- Eliot, George

Charity sees the need not the cause.

- German Proverb

To give requires good sense.

- Ovid

Surely as the years pass on they ought to have made us better, more useful, more worthy. We may have been disappointed in our lofty ideas of what ought to be done, but we may have gained more clear and practical notions of what can be done. We may have lost in enthusiasm, and yet gained in earnestness. We may have lost in sensibility, yet gained in charity, activity, and power. We may be able to do far less, and yet what we do may be far better done. And our very griefs and disappointments--have they been useless to us? Surely not. We shall have gained instead of lost by them if the Spirit of God has been working in us. Our sorrows will have wrought in us patience, our patience experience, and that experience hope--hope that He who has led us thus far will lead us farther still, that He who has taught us in former days precious lessons--not only by sore temptations but most sacred joys--will teach us in the days to come fresh lessons by temptations, which we shall be more able to endure; and by joys which, though unlike those of old times, are no less sacred, but sent as lessons to our souls by Him from whom all good gifts come.

- Water of Life Sermons.

If universal charity prevailed, Earth would be a heaven, and hell a fable.

- Charles Caleb Colton

The charitable give out the door and God puts it back through the window.

- Proverb

Be charitable before wealth makes you covetous.

- Browne, Sir Thomas

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

- William Hutton

A strong argument for the religion of Christ is this -- that offences against Charity are about the only ones which men on their death-beds can be made -- not to understand -- but to feel -- as crime.

- Poe, Edgar Allan

Peace, like charity, begins at home.

- Roosevelt, Franklin D.

I have no faith, very little hope, and as much charity as I can afford.

- Thomas H. Huxley

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.
