The giving is the hardest part; what does it cost to add a smile?
Jean de la Bruyere
A bone to the dog is not CHARITY. CHARITY is the bone shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the dog.
CHARITY should begin at home, but should not stay there.
To do something, however small, to make others happier and better, is the highest ambition, the most elevating hope, which can inspire a human being.
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us, what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal,
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.
