Never hesitate to help the needy if you are in a position to do so, because it is absolutely a blessing to be able to extend a helping hand to help others. Edmond Mbiaka Charity Quotes – Giving Back to the Needy – Helping People in Need – Help the Poor – Quote


A disciple having asked for a definition of charity, the Master said LOVE ONE ANOTHER. — Confucius


A man’s true wealth is the good he does in this world. — Muhammad

A society that has more justice is a society that needs less charity. — Ralph Nader


Behold, I do not give lectures or a little charity, when I give I give myself. — Walt Whitman


Charity is commendable; everyone should be charitable. But justice aims to create a social order in which, if individuals choose not to be charitable, people still don’t go hungry, unschooled or sick without care. Charity depends on the vicissitudes of whim and personal wealth; justice depends on commitment instead of circumstance. — Bill Moyers


Charity is in the heart of man, and righteousness in the path of men. Pity the man who has lost his path and does not follow it and who has lost his heart and does not know how to recover it. When people’s dogs and chicks are lost they go out and look for them and yet the people who have lost their hearts do not go out and look for them. The principle of self-cultivation consists in nothing but trying to look for the lost heart. — Mencius (4th century B.C.) Charity Quotes – Giving Back to the Needy – Helping People in Need – Help the Poor – Quote

Charity isn’t a good substitute for justice. — Jonathan Kozol


Charity should begin at home, but should not stay there. — Philip Brooks


Deeds of giving are the very foundations of the world. — Jewish saying


Did universal charity prevail, earth would be a heaven, and hell a fable. — Charles Caleb Colton (1825)


I don’t believe in charity. I believe in solidarity. Charity is vertical, so it’s humiliating. It goes from the top to the bottom. Solidarity is horizontal. It respects the other and learns from the other. I have a lot to learn from other people. — Eduardo Galeano

I would rather have it said, ‘He lived usefully,’ than, ‘He died rich.’ — Benjamin Franklin


I’ve always respected those who try to change the world for the better rather than just complain about it. — Michael Bloomberg Charity Quotes – Giving Back to the Needy – Helping People in Need – Help the Poor – Quote


If every man took only what was sufficient for his needs, leaving the rest to those in want, there would be no rich and no poor. — St Basil of Caesarea


If there be any truer measure of a man than by what he does, it must be by what he gives.— Robert South


In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind’s concern is charity. — Alexander Pope (1733)

It is a denial of justice not to stretch out a helping hand to the fallen that is the common right of humanity. — Seneca the Elder


It is justice, not charity, that is wanting in the world. — Mary Wollstonecraft


It is more difficult to give money away intelligently than to earn it in the first place. — Andrew Carnegie Charity Quotes – Giving Back to the Needy – Helping People in Need – Help the Poor – Quote


Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life . . . — Nelson Mandela


Peace, like charity, begins at home. — Franklin D. Roosevelt


Public charities, foodbanks and church pantries are doing more than ever before, but they can’t keep up with the need. We can never end hunger only through the wonderful work of local charities. Like other Western democracies, we must end our national problem of hunger through national and political leadership. Charity is nice for some things, but not as a way to feed a nation. We don’t protect our national security through charity, and we shouldn’t protect our families and children that way either. — Jeff Bridges


The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity. — Benjamin Franklin


The highest use of capital is not to make more money but to make money do more for the betterment of life. — Henry Ford


The only hope of preserving what is best, lies in the practice of an immense charity, a wide tolerance, a sincere respect for opinions that are not ours. –Philip Gilbert Hamerton Charity Quotes – Giving Back to the Needy – Helping People in Need – Help the Poor – Quote


There are eight rungs in charity. The highest is when you help a man to help himself. — Moses Maimonides


This is not charity. This is business: business with a social objective, which is to help people get out of poverty.  — Muhammad Yunus


This only is charity, to do all, all that we can. — John Donne


To give away money is an easy matter in any man’s power. But to decide to whom to give it, and how large and when, and for what purpose and how, is neither in every man’s power nor an easy matter. — Aristotle


Wealth is not to feed our egos, but to feed the hungry and to help people help themselves. — Andrew Carnegie


What is the use of living, if it not be to strive for noble causes and to make this muddled world a better place for those who will live in it after we are gone? — Winston Churchill Charity Quotes – Giving Back to the Needy – Helping People in Need – Help the Poor – Quote


What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal. — Albert Pike


Whatever a man has in superabundance is owed, of natural right, to the poor for their sustenance. So Ambrosius says, and it is also to be found in the Decretum Gratiani: ‘The bread which you withhold belongs to the hungry: the clothing you shut away, to the naked: and the money you bury in the earth is the redemption and freedom of the penniless.’ — St Thomas Aquinas


Whatsoever is done in charity, however small and of no reputation it be, bringeth forth good fruit.  — Thomas à Kempis


With malice toward none, with charity for all, …let us strive on to finish the work we are in, …to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations. — Abraham Lincoln Charity Quotes – Giving Back to the Needy – Helping People in Need – Help the Poor – Quote
