That charity is bad which takes from independence its proper pride, from mendicity its salutary shame.
      - Robert Southey

Cold is thy hopeless heart, even as charity.
      - Robert Southey, Soldier's Wife

Good is no good, but if it be spend,
  God giveth good for none other end.
      - Edmund Spenser

In all works of liberality something more is to be considered besides the occasion of the givers; and that is the occasion of the receivers.
      - Thomas Sprat

Heaven be their resource who have no other but the charity of the world, the stock of which, I fear, is no way sufficient for the many great claims which are hourly made upon it.
      - Laurence Sterne

Defer not charities till death. He who does so is rather liberal of another man's substance than his own.
      - L.M. Stretch

Charity itself consists in acting justly and faithfully in whatever office, business and employment a person is engaged in.
      - Emanuel Swedenborg (Swedberg)

True charity is the desire to be useful to others without thought of recompense.
      - Emanuel Swedenborg (Swedberg)

He who has never denied himself for the sake of giving has but glanced at the joys of charity. We owe our superfluity, and to be happy in the performance of our duty we must exceed it.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

We are rich only through what we give, and poor only through what we refuse.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Charity begins at home.
  [Lat., Proximus sum egomet mihi.]
      - Terence (Publius Terentius Afer), Andria
         (act IV, sc. 1, 12), (free translation)

You must have a genius for charity as well as for anything else.
      - Henry David Thoreau

And when Christ came to implant in human bosoms pure, disinterested Christian charity, He brought it as an exotic from heaven, and God had to coin a name for it, for there was no word in all the polyglots of earth that would properly describe it. The thing itself was a thing unknown until the angels heralded it and Jesus brought it.
      - Unknown

The place of charity, like that of God, is everywhere.
      - Alexandre Rodolphe Vinet

His daily prayer, far better understood in acts than in words, was simply doing good.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

Would'st thou from sorrow find a sweet relief,
  Or is thy heart oppress'd with woe untold?
    Balm would'st thou gather for corroding grief?--
      Pour blessings round thee, like a shower of gold.
      - Carlos Wilcox

Charity creates a multitude of sins.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

The charities that soothe and heal and bless, lie scattered at the feet of men like flowers.
      - William Wordsworth
