Defer not charities till death; for certainly, if a man weigh it rightly, he that doth so is rather liberal of another man's than of his own.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on charity, christ, eternity, growth, joy, love, purity, selfishness, and world

The world today speaks a great deal about love, and it is sought by many. But the pure love of Christ differs greatly from what the world thinks of love. Charity never seeks selfish gratification. The pure love of Christ seeks only the eternal growth and joy of others.

A Quote by Elihu Root on action, blindness, brothers, charity, control, country, desires, duty, feeling, government, happiness, individuality, judgment, life, love, nobility, people, popularity, prejudice, principles, progress, prosperity, reason, self-c

True love of country is not mere blind partisanship. It is regard for the people of one's country and all of them; it is a feeling of fellowship and brotherhood for all of them; it is a desire for the prosperity and happiness of all of them; it is kindly and considerate judgment toward all of them. The first duty of popular self-government is individual self-control. The essential condition of true progress is that it shall be based upon grounds of reason, and not prejudice. Lincoln's noble sentiment of charity for all and malice toward none was not a specific for the Civil War, but is a living principle of action.

Elihu Root (1845 - 1937)
