Helping Others Quotations
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
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.
In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.
Be willing to have it so. Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune.
As my mother says, “You give back, you don’t give up.” You can always choose to help others. If you do, it will change you.
Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.
Condemn none: if you can stretch out a helping hand, do so. If you cannot, fold your hands, bless your brothers, and let them go their own way.

Personal Stories About ‘Helping Others’

H.E.L.P.Submitted by Rodney Williams
Help can be either a noun or transitive verb depending on the use. I prefer it as a verb as I like action. I like giving help. It allows me to share life experiences and learn new things. Most every time I help someone, I learn something new during the process. In fact, I like to think of H.E.L.P. as an acronym...

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.
