BUT love, as Nature loves, the lonely Poor!
Search, for their worth, some gentle heart wrong-proof,
Meek, patient, kind,—and, were its trials fewer,
Belike less happy.—Stand no more aloof!
William Wordsworth

HE that giveth to the poor lendeth to the Lord: there is more Rhetoric in that one sentence than in a Library of sermons; and, indeed, if those sentences were understood by the Reader, with the same Emphasis as they are delivered by the Author, we needed not those volumes of instructions, but might be honest by an Epitome.
Sir Thomas Browne

THERE is no true potency, remember, but that of help; nor true ambition, but ambition to save.
John Ruskin

AND though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not love, it profiteth me nothing.
St. Paul
