The highest exercise of charity is charity towards the uncharitable.
Buckminster, J. S.

Did universal charity prevail, earth would be a heaven, and hell a fable.
Colton, Charles Caleb

Bossuet, Jacques BeNigne

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

Loyola, St. Ignatius

16.
Charity: a thing that begins at home, and usually stays there.

17.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But if that drop was not in the ocean, I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. I do not agree with the big way of doing things.
Mother Teresa

18.
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

19.
It is more agreeable to have the power to give than to receive.
Churchill, Winston

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

Bible

They take the paper and they read the headlines. So they've heard of unemployment and they've heard of bread-lines. And they philanthropically cure them all by getting up a costume charity ball.
Nash, Ogden
