LIBERALITY
[ Also see Benefit Charity Generosity Gifts Goodness Kindness Liberal Philanthropy Well-doing ]

He that defers his charity until he is dead is, if a man weighs it rightly, rather liberal of another man's goods than his own.
      - Francis Bacon

Men might be better if we better deemed of them.
      - Philip James Bailey

Liberality should be tempered with judgment, not with profuseness.
      - Hosea Ballou

In defiance of all the tortue, of all the might, of all the malice of the world, the liberal man will ever be rich; for God's providence is his estate, God's wisdom and power are his defence, God's love and favor are his reward, and God's word is his security.
      - Isaac Barrow

He that's liberal
  To all alike, may do a good by chance,
    But never out of judgment.
      - Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher,
        The Spanish Curate (act I, sc. 1)

There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
      - Bible, Proverbs (ch. XI, v. 24)

The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
      - Bible, Proverbs (ch. XI, v. 25)

Then gently scan your brother man,
  Still gentler sister woman;
    Though they may gang a' kennin' wrang
      To step aside is human.
      - Robert Burns, Address to Unco Guid

It is better to believe that a man does possess good qualities than to assert that he does not.
      - Sir John Francis Davis, China, 1823

Liberality is the best way to gain affection; for we are assured of their friendship to whom we are obliged.
      - Charles de Marguetel de Saint-Denis de Saint-Evremond

Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence; conservatism, distrust of the people tempered by fear.
      - Rt. Hon. William Ewart Gladstone

If you are poor, distinguish yourself by your virtues; if rich, by your good deeds.
      - Joseph Joubert

To the liberal ideas of the age must be opposed the moral ideas of all ages.
      - Joseph Joubert

That which is called liberality is frequently nothing more than the vanity of giving.
      - Theodore Parker

Be rather bountiful, than expensive.
      - William Penn

Gold that is put to use more gold begets.
      - William Shakespeare

Shall I say to Caesar
  What you require of him? For he partly begs
    To be desired to give. It much would please him
      That of his fortunes you should make a staff
        To lean upon.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Thidias at III, xiii)
