A Quote by Daniel H. Wells on blessings, charity, dependence, direction, god, hunger, independence, and path

You may give a piece of bread to a hungry person, and when the cravings of hunger return some one else must administer to his wants again; to put that person in a position to earn his own subsistence is true charity; in this way you direct his feet in the path of true independence, he is then only dependent on his own exertions and on the blessings of his God.

Daniel H. Wells (1814 - 1891)
