Proportion thy charity to the strength of thy estate, lest God proportion thy estate to the weakness of thy charity; let the lips of the poor be the trumpet of thy gift, lest in seeking applause, thou lose thy reward. Nothing is more pleasing to God than an open hand and a close mouth.-
      - Francis Quarles

Charity is an eternal debt and without limit.
      - Pasquier Quesnel

The last, best fruit that comes to perfection, even in the kindliest soul, is tenderness toward the hard; forbearance toward the unforbearing; warmth of heart toward the cold; and philanthropy toward the misanthropic.
      - Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul)

Earth has not a spectacle more glorious or more fair to show than this--love tolerating intolerance; charity covering, as with a vail, even the sin of the lack of charity.
      - Frederick William Robertson

Great minds, like heaven, are pleased in doing good, though the ungrateful subjects of their favors are barren in return.
      - Nicholas Rowe

Wherever the tree of beneficence takes root, it sends forth branches beyond the sky!
      - Moslih Eddin (Muslih-un-Din) Saadi (Sadi)

Do something for somebody every day for which you do not get paid.
      - Albert Schweitzer

Whoever would entitle himself after death through the merits of his Redeemer, to the noblest of rewards, let him serve God throughout life in this most excellent of all duties, doing good to our brethren. Whoever is sensible of his offences, let him take this way especially of evidencing his repentance.
      - Thomas Secker

That comes too late that comes for the asking.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

We should give as we would receive, cheerfully, quickly and without hesitation; for there is no grace in a benefit that sticks to the fingers.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

A hand as fruitful as the land that feeds us; His dew falls everywhere.
      - William Shakespeare

A tear for pity and a hand
  Open as day for melting charity.
      - William Shakespeare

Charity, which renders good for bad, blessings for curses.
      - William Shakespeare

Gently to hear, kindly to judge.
      - William Shakespeare

It is religion to be thus forsworn,
  For charity itself fulfills the law
    And who can never love from charity?
      - William Shakespeare, Love's Labor's Lost
         (Berowne at IV, iii)

Lady, you know no rules of charity,
  Which renders good for bad, blessings for curses.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (King Richard at I, ii)

Those who minister to poverty and disease are accomplices in the two worst of all crimes.
      - George Bernard Shaw

Ah! what a divine religion might be found out if charity were really made the principle of it instead of faith!
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley

I believe there is no sentiment he has such faith in as that charity begins at home"
  And his, I presume., is of that domestic sort which never stirs abroad at all.
      - Richard Brinsley Sheridan,
        School for Scandal (act V, sc. 1)

There is no dearth of charity in the world in giving, but there is comparatively little exercised in thinking and speaking.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

Our possessions are wholly in our performances. He owns nothing to whom the world owes nothing.
      - William Gilmore Simms

Our true acquisitions lie only in our charities. We gain only as we give. There is no beggar so destitute as he who can afford nothing to his neighbor.
      - William Gilmore Simms

Our charity begins at home,
  And mostly ends where it begins.
      - Horace (Horatio) Smith (a/k/a Paul Chatfield),
        Horace in London (bk. II, ode 15)

That charity alone endures which flows from a sense of duty and a hope in God. This is the charity that treads in secret those paths of misery from which all but the lowest of human wretches have fled; this is that charity which no labor can weary, no ingratitude detach, no horror disgust; that toils, that pardons, that suffers; that is seen by no man, and honored by no man, but, like the great laws of Nature, does the work of God in silence, and looks to a future and better world for its reward.
      - Sydney Smith

When thy brother has lost all that he ever had, and lies languishing, and even gasping under the utmost extremities of poverty and distress, dost thou think to lick him whole again only with thy tongue?
      - Bishop Robert South
