charity

A Quote by Hyrum W. Smith on change, character, charity, dependence, divinity, feeling, goals, god, greatness, growth, humility, ideas, imagination, mind, peace, power, sacrifice, success, and wisdom

Humility: The realization of our dependence on God. I have always had strong feelings about that word regardless of what anyone's background might be. One of the common denominators of greatness is acknowledging that dependence. As power comes from Charity, power also comes from knowing who you are, a divine offspring of a divine being.

Sacrifice: Giving up something good for something better. As I have studied great men and women from the beginning of time, the common denominator of greatness has been the ability and willingness to sacrifice for whatever they were trying to achieve. When sacrifice has been there, great humans have emerged.

A Quote by Henry D. Moyle on belief, charity, children, christianity, dependence, direction, family, fatherhood, home, hope, improvement, life, love, motherhood, parenthood, progress, responsibility, sharing, and virtue

Charity is not a virtue to expect in others only. It is the all-important Christian attribute to be found in ourselves. . . . We believe that charity must begin at home. Can we hope to be charitable to the stranger if love does not abound in the family? A sure step in the direction of improvement and progress in our own lives comes when we share with mother or father in their dependence as they shared with us in their productive years.... We cannot as children ignore our obligations to our parents by passing responsibility for their care to others. . . .

Henry D. Moyle (1889 - 1963)

A Quote by George Eliot on belief, change, character, charity, generosity, judgment, nature, nobility, and wishes

The presence of a noble nature, generous in its wishes, ardent in its charity, changes the lights for us: we begin to see things again in their larger, quieter masses, and to believe that we too can be seen and judged in the wholeness of our character.

George Eliot (1819 - 1880)

A Quote by George Bancroft on charity, instinct, life, privilege, and study

The charities of life are scattered everywhere, enameling the vales of human beings as the flowers paint the meadows. They are not the fruit of study, nor the privilege of refinement, but a natural instinct.

George Bancroft (1800 - 1891)
