A Quote by Edgar Albert Guest on cleverness, duty, effort, errors, friendship, glory, honesty, justice, labor, money, needs, neighbors, people, pity, simplicity, trying, wishes, and youth

Be a friend. You don't need money: Just a disposition sunny; Just the wish to help another Get along some way or other; Just a kindly had extended Out to one who's unbefriended; Just the will to give or lend, This will make you someone's friend. Be a friend. You don't need glory. Friendship is a simple story. Pass by trifling errors blindly, Gaze on honest effort kindly, Cheer the youth who's bravely trying, Pity him who's sadly sighing; Just a little labor spend On the duties of a friend. Be a friend. The pay is bigger (Though not written by a figure) Tan is earned by people clever In what's merely self-endeavor. You'll have friends instead of neighbors For the profits of your labors; You'll be richer in the end Than a prince, if you're a friend.

A Quote by General Dwight David Eisenhower on church, competence, god, good, insults, life, neighbors, and religion

What the church should be telling the worker is that the first demand religion makes on him is that he should be a good workman. If he is a carpenter he should be a competent carpenter. Church by all means on Sundays - but what is the use of church if at the very center of life a man defrauds his neighbor and insults God by poor craftsmanship.

A Quote by Dave Barry on garden, jobs, neighbors, and preparation

Your first job is to prepare the soil. The best tool for this is your neighbor's motorized garden tiller. If your neighbor does not own a garden tiller, suggest that he buy one.

A Quote by Catherine of Siena on charity, criticism, god, good, impossibility, justice, love, men, neighbors, and service

He has loved us without being loved. . . . We are bound to Him, and not He to us, because before He was loved, He loved us. . . . There it is, then: we cannot . . . love Him with this first love. Yet I say that God demands of us, that as He has loved us with out any second thoughts, so He should be loved by us. In what way can we do this, then? . . . I tell you, through a means which he has established, by which we can love Him freely; . . . that is, we can be useful, not to Him - which is impossible - but to our neighbor. . . . To show the love that we have for Him, we ought to serve and love every rational creature and extend our charity to good and bad - as much to one who does us ill service and criticizes us as to one who serves us. For, His charity extends over just men and sinners.

A Quote by Caroline Eyring Miner on appreciation, friendship, jesus, justice, love, neighbors, tolerance, and virtue

We speak much of tolerance as if it were the great virtue, but it does not go far enough. Who wants to be tolerated, just to be put up with? Jesus did not say,"Tolerate your neighbor," but instead He said, "Love your neighbors." Each person wants to be loved and appreciated and enjoyed for what he is and for what he can do for his friends and his neighbors.

A Quote by Carl Gustav Jung on education, good, hypocrisy, injustice, learning, love, men, neighbors, people, respect, tolerance, understanding, and violence

If people can be educated to see the lowly side of their own natures, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and to love their fellow men better. A little less hypocrisy and a little more tolerance towards oneself can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.

Carl Jung (1875 - 1961)
