A thief entered a Sufi’s house. He searched everywhere, but could find nothing worthy of stealing. He was about to leave in despair, when the Sufi awoke....
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.
We cannot hold a torch to light another person’s path without brightening our own.
The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.
The measure of a life, after all, is not its duration, but its donation.
No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.
We must not give only what we have; we must give what we are.
The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good deed by stealth and have it found out by accident.
Generosity lies less in giving much than in giving at the right moment.
Do all the good you can, in all the ways you can, as long as ever you can.
Courtesy is the one coin you can never have too much of or be stingy with.
Give, and it will be given to you.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Once in a century a man may be ruined or made insufferable by praise. But surely once in a minute something generous dies for want of it.
