Helping Others Quotations
Believe that there's light at the end of the tunnel. Believe that you might be that light for someone else.
If I can stop one heart from breaking, I shall not live in vain; If I can ease one life the aching, Or cool one pain, Or help one fainting robin Up to his nest again, I shall not live in vain.
To strengthen the muscles of your heart, the best exercise is lifting someone else's spirit whenever you can.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
We can never get a re-creation of community and heal our society without giving our citizens a sense of belonging.
Hunter Campbell "Patch" Adams
Each of us can look back upon someone who made a great difference in our lives, someone whose wisdom or simple acts of caring made an impression upon us. In all likelihood it was someone who sought no recognition for their deed other than the joy of knowing that, by their hand, another's life had been made better.
Stephen M. Wolf
We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobiles, rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to humanity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Help publicly. Help privately. Help in your actions by recycling and conserving and protecting, but help also in your attitude. Help make sense where sense has gone missing. Help bring reason and respect to discourse and debate. Help science to solve and faith to soothe. Help law bring justice, until justice in commonplace. Help and you will abolish apathy- the void that is so quickly filled by ignorance and evil.
Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life.
Henry L. Doherty
In the time we have it is surely our duty to do all the good we can to all the people we can in all the ways we can.

Personal Stories About ‘Helping Others’
A Helping HandSubmitted by Anonymous
She had been bleeding all day. She was my good friend and closest professional colleague at the time —back in the 70's. It had been her first day back at work after some surgery and I guess she should have taken a few more days to recover. As soon as work was over, she and I headed to the emergency room and...
Don't Judge A Book By Its CoverSubmitted by Elana
Last winter, when I was heavily pregnant, I was visiting my sister and brother-in-law's house and had to park in a nearby parking lot because they didn't have accessible parking. The snow was extremely heavy and there was lots of ice on the ground - not many people had ventured out that evening! When I returned...
A Light In The DarknessSubmitted by Victoria Lancaster
We were moving to a new state after my husband had been out of work for many months and we had no money. In fact, we had to borrow money to reach our destination town. Anyway, it was my husband, 2 boys ages 4 and 2, and myself, 7 months pregnant, in an old Volvo station wagon. We had been driving for 2 days in...

Anthony TupperSubmitted by Lisa Clark
Anthony is my son. I have been Type I diabetic for 40 years, so he was born with heart defects. He literally saved my life more than once when my blood sugar dropped dramatically. He called 911 at least 3 times (once at the age of 4). He also flagged down a police officer when he was 8 and I drove off the road...

Help others. What I did before is raise 175 dollars for a man because he didn't have a heater or a bicycle. I did this because I love other people instead of myself. 8 years old=)
That quote really caught me. I feel way better now.
This is a good example of the Rachel's Challenge.

What a beautiful picture. Helping and encouraging children in need. I experienced my own child being in a children's home for near 2 years it was a very difficult time.. Especially at Christmas time may God bless those with compassionate hearts as these that work with our children!!
Bonnie Frakes, Texarkana, AR
Helping others in need is really a kind thing in our daily life. We can lend a helping hand for once, but it's really hard to be willing to help others in one's entire life. I just hope that we can do this kind of thing whenever they are needed.
Every person on this earth should love, respect, communicate, assist in every way they can, their parents, because they are why you are here and when they are gone, they will never be seen again. I know I miss mine and think about them daily, bye mom/dad.
We all have something we can do everyday to help someone in need even if it's just a smile and kind words.
