Charity quotes
Charity
Charity: a thing that begins at home, and usually stays there.

- Hubbard, Elbert
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
The best loved by God are those that are rich, yet have the humility of the poor, and those that are poor and have the magnanimity of the rich.

- Saadi
Physical deformity, calls forth our charity. But the infinite misfortune of moral deformity calls forth nothing but hatred and vengeance.

- Clarence Darrow
The living need charity more than the dead.

- George Arnold
Charity sees the need, not the cause.

- Proverb, German
And now abide faith, hope and love; these three, but the greatest of these is love. [Corinthians 13:13]

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

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

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

- O'Reilly, John Boyle
I am as comfortless as a pilgrim with peas in his shoes -- and as cold as Charity, Chastity or any other Virtue.

- Byron, Lord
Teach us to give and not count the cost.

- Loyola, St. Ignatius
Be charitable before wealth makes thee covetous.

- Sir Thomas Browne
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.
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
There are nine requisites for contented living: HEALTH enough to make work a pleasure; WEALTH enough to support your needs; STRENGTH enough to battle with difficulties and forsake them; GRACE enough to confess your sins and overcome them; PATIENCE enough to toil until some good is accomplished; CHARITY enough to see some good in your neighbor; LOVE enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others; FAITH enough to make real the things of God; HOPE enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
In charity there is no excess.

- Sir Francis Bacon
Real charity doesn't care if it's tax-deductible or not.

- Dan Bennett
When you're a married man, Samivel, you'll understand a good many things as you don't understand now; but whether it's worth while, going through so much, to learn so little, as the charity-boy said when he got to the end of the alphabet, is a matter o taste.

- Dickens, Charles
Charity begins at home.

- Terence
