CHARITY

Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we donít judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet. Charity is accepting someoneís differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended...Charity is refusing to take advantage of anotherís weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other. - Marvin J. Ashton (Submitted by Alexa)

The measure of our love is the measure of the greatness of our souls. - Joseph B. Wirthlin (Contributed by Elaine Dasgupta)

For charity there is no bookkeeping, no deals, interests, bargaining or ulterior motives; charity gives to those who do not deserve, and expects nothing return; it is the love God has for us, and the love we have for little children, of whom we expect nothing, but for whom we would give everything.  - Hugh Nibley

Let us endeavor to so live that when we come to die even the undertaker will be sorry.--Mark Twain

I would be a Friend - A wish to be charitable by George Albert Smith

What can I give him
Poor as I am;
If I were a shepherd,
I would give him a lamb.
If I were a wise man,
I would give my part.
But what can I give him?
I will give my heart.
