12 Charity Quotes from Literature

That glorious vision of doing good, which is so often the sanguine mirage of so many good minds, arose before him. ~ A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens But thus it often is, that the constant friction of illiberal minds wears out at last the best resolves of the more generous. ~ Bartleby, the Scrivener by Herman Melville "Business!" cried the Ghost, wringing its hands again. "Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business; charity, mercy, forbearance, and benevolence, were, all, my business. The dealings of my trade were but a drop of water in the comprehensive ocean of my business!" ~ A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens "Philanthropy seems to me to have become simply the refuge of people who wish to annoy their fellow-creatures." ~ An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde "Lots of people think they're charitable if they give away their old clothes and things they don't want. It isn't charity to give away things you want to get rid of and it isn't a sacrifice to do things you don't mind doing." ~ Old Rose and Silver by Myrtle Reed "How much good do you suppose condescending charity does?" ~ A Little Journey in the World by Charles Dudley Warner His philanthropy was of that gunpowderous sort that the difference between it and animosity was hard to determine. ~ The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Charles Dickens Considering how much we are all given to discuss the characters of others, and discuss them often not in the strictest spirit of charity, it is singular how little we are inclined to think that others can speak ill-naturedly of us, and how angry and hurt we are when proof reaches us that they have done so. ~ Barchester Towers by Anthony Trollope Even on this small stage we have our two sides, and something might be done by throwing all one's weight on the scale of breadth, tolerance, charity, temperance, peace, and kindliness to man and beast. We can't all strike very big blows, and even the little ones count for something. ~ The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Why should people ever take credit for charity when they must know that they cannot gain as much pleasure out of their guineas in any other fashion? ~ The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
