Helping Others Quotations
If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.
The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.
Ndukwe Dike Kalu
Helping, fixing and serving represent three different ways of seeing life. When you help, you see life as weak. When you fix, you see life as broken. When you serve, you see life as whole. Fixing and helping may be the work of the ego, and service the work of the soul.
Rachel Naomi Remen
Many small people, in many small places, do many small things, that can alter the face of the world.
The trouble is that rich people, well-to-do people, very often don't really know who the poor are; and that is why we can forgive them, for knowledge can only lead to love, and love to service. And so, if they are not touched by them, it's because they do not know them.
Robert G. Ingersoll
It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life, that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Somebody has to train these kids. Somebody has to teach them, and if not me, who? If not now, when? We must do it. It's got to be done.
Oral Lee Brown
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.
If you will think about what you ought to do for other people, your character will take care of itself. Character is a by-product, and any man who devotes himself to its cultivation in his own case will become a selfish prig.

Personal Stories About ‘Helping Others’
To Protect And ServeSubmitted by Sheri Hansen
It was 15 degrees below zero and 1:30 AM when the car ran out of gas miles from home. I was young and poor, too poor to keep a full tank. My friend and I got out and started to walk in the cold. I had on my dancing shoes, silly me. But, my coat was warm enough for a cold day, not a truly cold night though. My...

One day, my mom and I were leaving PetCo after picking up our dog. On the way out, I noticed something on the ground, I reached to pick it up and realized that it was a debit card.

Road Side AssistanceSubmitted by Anonymous
Spring of 1995 was a strangely hot spring, especially for Minnesota. I was 9 months pregnant with my first daughter and needed to drive about 45 minutes from a very rural area to my doctor's office. I drove an older car, which wasn't in the greatest of shape, but it got me from point A to point B -- except on...

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.
