Let us give, so that we will have!

There is no culture or religion
which does not preach the goodness of doing charity.

One of the things we were taught in school
was that you do not help people because
you expect something in return.
You help people because they need help.

What I spent, I had;
What I saved, I lost;
What I gave, I have.

Canadian George Moore

Philanthropy is "the love of mankind".

There is no greater calling than to give oneself
into the lives of others,
for in the end, it is only people that last.

In the act of giving to those around us,
we extend nothing short of hope;
and hope is the greatest gift that we can give."

Malcolm Forbes

In the end,
we will remember not the words of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends.

Martin Luther King Jr

The Master has no possessions.
The more he does for others,
the happier he is.
The more he gives to others,
the wealthier he is.

Fame or integrity: which is more important?
Money or happiness: which is more valuable?
Success or failure: which is more destructive?

If you look to others for fulfillment,
you will never truly be fulfilled.
If your happiness depends on money,
you will never be happy with yourself.

Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.
