For his bounty,
  There was no winter in't: An autumn 'twas
    That grew the more by reaping: his delights
      Were dolphin-like, thy showed his back above
        The element they lived in: in his livery
          Walked crowns and crownets: realms and islands were
            As plates dropped from his pocket.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Cleopatra at V, ii)

Doing good is the only certainly happy action of a man's life.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

You will find people ready enough to do the Samaritan without the oil and twopence.
      - Sydney Smith

Carve your name on hearts, and not on marble.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Giving is true having.
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Never try to save out of God's cause; such money will canker the rest. Giving to God is no loss; it is putting your substance in the best bank. Giving is true having, as the old gravestone said of the dead man "What I spend had, what I saved I lost; what I gave I have."
      - Charles Haddon Spurgeon

So quickly sometimes has the wheel turned round, that many a man has lived to enjoy the benefit of that charity which his own piety projected.
      - Laurence Sterne

Benevolence and feeling ennoble the most trifling actions.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

Never lose a chance of saying a kind word. As Collingwood never saw a vacant place in his estate but he took an acorn out of his pocket and popped it in, so deal with your compliments through life. An acorn costs nothing; but it may sprout into a prodigious bit of timber.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

The generous pride of virtue,
  Disdains to weigh too nicely the returns
    Her bounty meets with--like the liberal gods,
      From her own gracious nature she bestows,
        Nor stops to ask reward.
      - James Thomson (1)

Every virtue carries with it its own reward, but none in so distinguished and pre-eminent a degree as benevolence.
      - Unknown
