Fairy Of Charity

Greetings Pilgrims who gather in Goodness and Peace.  Below are some fabulous quotes I have gathered through the years on Charity.  I love, love, love Virginia Woolf's quote the best....although they are all wonderful.  Charity is about giving without expecting anything in return and NOT making the person feel "less than" yourself.  Genuine Charity helps everyone to feel and live an abundant life (not hideous wealth) ... abundant in every way ... materially, spiritually, socially and in good health in body and mind. 

A society that has more justice is a society that needs less charity.” 
~Ralph Nader
 
The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service.  ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
 
To give up yourself without regret is the greatest charity.  ~Bodhidharma
 
Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.  
~Francis of Assisi
 
Every good act is charity. A man's true wealth hereafter is the good that he does in this world to his fellows. ~Moliere    
 
May your charity increase as much as your wealth”  ~ Proverb
 
Where the Mind is biggest, the Heart, the Senses, Magnanimity, Charity, Tolerance, Kindliness, and the rest of them scarcely have room to breathe.  
~Virginia Woolfe



Here is my FAIRY OF CHARITY




As Always, Good Health, Happiness, Peace and Abundance to All !

Ooh,you are right, they are all really good quotes! I especially like the one from Ralph Nader (so very simple yet true it is)!

I agree whole-heartedly with you about the true meaning of "charity." It is something that everyone should learn and live by!

Blessings,

Kim

Incipient Wings...thanks so much for your kind and positive comments. I really do appreciate them so.

Tribal Horse Designs, thanks also for your kind comments. I appreciate them and you also.

Kim, my sister, my friend, we are so like-minded and it's so nice isn't it? Wouldn't it be nice if we were more like Celtic folks of old ... and they had more festivals also ! What fun.

Love and Light to All of You !

We are indeed, my dear friend! Who knows? I truly believe that the Goddess and God bring people into our lives for a good reason or purpose. Who knows, maybe we really did know each other in another lifetime or something? We are truly sisters of the spirit!

Hugs to you,

Kim
