What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
Silence the angry man with love. Silence the ill-natured man with kindness. Silence the miser with generosity. Silence the liar with truth.
Give a bowl of rice to a man and you will feed him for a day. Teach him how to grow his own rice and you will save his life.
The most truly generous persons are those who give silently without hope of praise or reward.
Carol Ryrie Brink
Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.
H. W. Longfellow
You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.
There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.
If truth doesn't set you free, generosity of spirit will.
Katerina Stoykova Klemer
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
If you can't feed a hundreed people, then just feed one.
You cannot do a kindness too soon because you never know how soon it will be too late.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
That's what I consider true generosity: You give your all and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing.
Simone de Beauvoir
Money is not the only commodity that is fun to give. We can give time, we can give our expertise, we can give our love or simply give a smile. What does that cost? The point is, none of us can ever run out of something worthwhile to give.
A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Attention is the purest form of generosity.
Don't be impressed by mopney, followers, degrees and titles. Be impressed by humility, integrity, generosity and kindness.
Wherever you go, may people always recognize that you have a beautiful heart.
Your greatness is not what you have, it is what you give.
