I’ve been accumulating favorite quotes for over 25 years.  Below are a large number on the subject of serving, helping, and giving, separated into paragraphs at random for readability.

Frederick Buechner:  “The life I touch for good or ill will touch another life, and that in turn another, until who knows where the trembling stops or in what far place my touch will be felt." -- Edgar Cayce:  “We do not go to heaven, we grow to heaven, on the arms of the people we help." -- Charles de Lint: I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I can’t change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit. -- Meher Baba:  No amount of prayer or meditation can do what helping others can do. -- Bernard Meltzer:  We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving. -- Helen Keller: Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be obtained.

Stephen Colbert:  If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn't help the poor, either we've got to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we've got to acknowledge that he commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don't want to do it. -- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:  Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?” -- Dr. Wayne Dyer:  If you want to find your true purpose in life, know this for certain: Your purpose will only be found in service to others. -- Dalai Lama: Wise persons think of others, helping them as much as they can, and the result is happiness. -- Tenzin Gyatso: Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them. -- Bob Hope: If you haven't any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble. -- President Franklin Roosevelt: The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.

Jessie Jackson: Never look down on anybody unless you're helping him up. -- John Ruskin: You will find that the honest desire to help other people, will, in the quickest and most delicate of ways, improve yourself. -- Martin Luther King, Jr.: An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity. -- D. Weatherford: No day is wasted in which I touch another person's life in any positive, meaningful way. And so it is that I enrich my days by giving something of myself whether through a warm smile, a kind word, a sympathetic ear, a gentle embrace or a simple helping hand. -- Terri Maxwell: To be happy, ask two questions daily: What am I grateful for and how can I serve? -- John Wesley:  Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can. -- William Wordsworth:  The best portion of a good man’s life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.

Arthur Ashe:  True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost. -- Andrew D. Basiago:  Let us envision a world in which all seven billion inhabitants of this planet are elevated to the status of fully functioning participants in human evolution, with adequate food, shelter, health care, and education guaranteed as basic human rights, so that as we venture out into the Cosmos, we can show that we have met the basic test of planetary citizenship. -- Mahatma Gandhi:  The best way to find yourself is in the service of others. -- Mahatma Gandhi: Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men. -- Brian Tracy:  Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. -- Fran Phillips:  I can't do all the good this world needs, but the world needs all the good that I can do. --  Owen Waters:  As heart-centered awareness grows and blooms within society, people’s primary focus will shift away from service-to-self and towards service-to-others.  When it does, the world will transform out of all recognition. -- Buddha: A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity. 


Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service. -- Joshua David Stone:  Being of service is an attitude. -- Unknown: Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring--all of which have the potential to turn life around. -- H. Jackson Browne, Jr.: Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day. --  Dalai Lama:  Through universal altruism, you develop a feeling of responsibility for others:  the wish to help them actively overcome their problems. - Rick Warren:  God determines your greatness by how many people you serve, not how many people serve you. - Unknown:  Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well being of a person or an animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul  when we look  the other way.

Peace Pilgrim:  When you become a channel through which God works, there are no more limitations, because God does the work through you.  You are merely the instrument, and what God can do is unlimited. -- Anjelica Huston:  Doing good eventually brings you closer to feeling good. -- Angel-Light Love:  There are people with predominantly “taker” minds. There are people of mostly “giver” consciousness. Where have you placed yourself? -- Albert Schweitzer:  Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight. -- John Skelton:  Try looking for someone to help. It’s better than finding gold. -- Mother Teresa:  If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one. -- Albert Einstein:  The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not what he is able to receive. -- Dr. Albert Schweitzer:  Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace. -- Unknown:  Unselfish giving and caring renews and replenishes rather than depletes a person.  

Harold Hayden:  You can’t help a man uphill without getting closer to the top yourself. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson:  It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can try to help another without helping himself. -- Distilled Wisdom:  It is not always what you think, or what you believe, or what you know.  It is what you do.  Put feet on your prayers.  Pray for those in need, but also take them a bag of groceries. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson:  You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know when it will be too late. -- Matel Dawson, Jr.:  As soon as you see someone in need of a helping hand, you should come to his rescue.  If you only have a little to help others, give what you can.  Sharing money, giving my help, makes me feel good, and it gives me peace of mind. -- Distilled Wisdom:  It is not always what you think, or what you believe, or what you know.  It is what you do.  Put feet on your prayers.  Pray for those in need, but also take them a bag of groceries.

Ralph Waldo Emerson:  You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know when it will be too late. -- Matel Dawson, Jr.:  As soon as you see someone in need of a helping hand, you should come to his rescue.  If you only have a little to help others, give what you can.  Sharing money, giving my help, makes me feel good, and it gives me peace of mind. -- Raiford Woods:  What is the point of Sabbath and of religion in general if they do not inspire what we do through the week?  For me, practicing religion ultimately means serving the poor and distressed.  The Bible clearly says that serving those in need is the heart of the gospel. . . Every day each of us has many opportunities to mirror the work of Christian serving the needy. -- Danny Thomas:  Success in life has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself.  It’s what you do for others. -- Carrie Chapman Catt:  Service to a just cause rewards a person with more real happiness and satisfaction than any other venture in life.

Ben Williams:  The worth of a person is what he will do for a person in need. -- Lao-tzu:  The wise man does not lay up treasure.  The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own. -- President George H. W. Bush:  I believe that any definition of a successful life must include service to others. It’s just that simple. -- Ray Charles:  Making people happy keeps you alive.  Life is supposed to be meaningful. -- Charles Dickens:  No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another. -- John Wesley:  Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, as long as ever you can. -- Our Daily Bread:  Do a deed of simple kindness, though its end you may not see; it will reach like widening ripples, down a long eternity. -- Ruth Renkel:  The sure way to a better tomorrow is to make today better for someone else. -- Our Daily Bread:  We really live when we live to give. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson:  To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived—this is to have succeeded.

Gamaliel Bailey:  It is one of the beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself. -- Betty Hinman:  No one can help everybody, but everybody can help someone. -- St. Francis de Sales:  Great occasions for serving God come seldom, but little ones surround us daily. -- Melissa Grove:  Once you extend your hand to help someone, you always gain more than you put in. -- Sir James M. Barrie:  Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. -- Leo Buscaglia:  It’s not enough to have lived.  We should be determined to live for something.  May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely. -- Lyndon B. Johnson:  Let those of us who are well-fed, well-clothed, and well-housed never forget and never overlook those who live on the outskirts of hope.

Cynthia Brian:  We make a living by what we get.  We make a life by what we give. -- James Lawrence Thomas:  If you wait until you see if someone is poorer than you are before you give them something, you won’t be giving anybody anything. -- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.:  Greatness is accomplished by service. --Howard Russell:  To be able to help somebody . . . that’s what life is all about. -- Shalina Stilley:  The more I enter into prayer, the more strongly I feel the need to serve. . . . and serving can be a prayer. -- Dannion Brinkley:  The quickest way to change the world is to be of service to others.  Show that your love can make a difference in the lives of people, and thereby someone else’s love can make a difference in your life.  By each of us doing that and working together, we can change the world one inner person at a time. -- Shirley Chisholm:  Service is the rent you pay for room on this earth. -- Phil Head:  You never stand taller than when you reach down to help someone who can’t help themselves.

Roberto Clemente:  If you have an opportunity to make things better and you don’t, you are wasting your time on earth. -- St. Augustine:  Since you cannot do good to all, you are to pay special attention to those who, by accidents of time, or place, or circumstance, are brought into closer connection with you. -- Albert Schweitzer:  The only ones among you who will be really happy are those how have sought and found how to serve. -- Robert Ingersoll:  The hands that help are better than the lips that pray. -- Marianne Williamson:  Nothing liberates our greatness like the desire to help, the desire to serve. -- Naomi Judd:  Service is the work of the soul. -- Eileen Caddy:  You find true joy and happiness in life when you give and give and go on giving and never count the cost. -- Richard Gere: If you want to be happy, do something for somebody else.

Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov:  Those who want to work for the benefit of humanity must not expect to be welcomed wherever they go with understanding and gratitude; they must realize they will awaken hostile forces as well.  Knowing this, they take precautions and continue their work.  Just because we might arouse hostility does not mean that we should cease to work for the light; in this, too, we must learn to be daring and continue our work.  Those who want to live in peace and quiet must not aspire to accomplish anything great or courageous, but must remain insignificant and unobtrusive.  In doing so, of course, they will provoke no reaction.  But is the solution to renounce everything great and beautiful in life in order to live in peace?  No, despite the difficulties, despite the opposition and criticism, you must choose the path of generosity, of nobility, and continue on to victory.
