Quotes on CHARITY

 Charity is helping a man to help himself.
Moses Maimonides (1135–1204)

Charity is money put to interest in the other world.
Robert Southey (1774–1843)

Charity is never lost. It may meet with ingratitude, or be of no service to those on whom it was bestowed, yet it ever does a work of beauty and grace upon the heart of the giver.
Conyers Middleton (1683–1750)

Charity is the scope of all God’s commands.
Saint John Chrysostom (c. 347–407)

If you haven’t got any charity in your heart, you have the worse kind of heart trouble.
Bob Hope (1903– 2003)

In charity there is no excess.
Francis Bacon (1561–1626)

In faith and hope the world will disagree,
But all mankind’s concern is charity.
Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

Never to judge rashly; never to interpret the actions of others in an ill-sense, but to compassionate their infirmities, bear their burdens, excuse their weaknesses, and make up for their defects—to hate their imperfections, but love themselves, this is the true spirit of charity.
Nicholas Caussin (1583–1651)

The charity that hastens to proclaim its good deeds ceases to be charity and is only pride and ostentation.
William Hutton (1723–1815)

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

This only is charity, to do all that we can.
John Donne (1572–1631)

True charity is the desire to be useful to others without thought of recompense.
Emanuel Swedenborg (1688–1772)

 What is charity?
It’s silence when your words would hurt
It’s patience when your neighbor’s hurt
It’s deafness when scandal flows
It’s thoughtfulness for another’s woes
It’s promptness when a stern duty calls
It’s courage when misfortune falls.
