Helping Others Quotations
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
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
I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it's at the end of your arm. As you get older, remember you have another hand: The first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.
Believe that there's light at the end of the tunnel. Believe that you might be that light for someone else.
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
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.
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.
In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.

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.
