Helping Others Quotations
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
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
To me it seems that to give happiness is a far nobler goal that to attain it: and that what we exist for is much more a matter of relations to others than a matter of individual progress: much more a matter of helping others to heaven than of getting there ourselves.
Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson]
Believe that there's light at the end of the tunnel. Believe that you might be that light for someone else.
In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.
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.
Jalal ad-Din Rumi
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.
Every good act is charity. A man's true wealth hereafter is the good that he does in this world to his fellows.
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’
Strangers In The NightSubmitted by Anonymous
I was 18 and on my way back to my college dorm, from babysitting, in the middle of the night. It was snowing and the streets were already covered with ice.

A Flat TireSubmitted by Len Maiolatesi
My coworker and I were delivering a car to a customer when I noticed a car in the opposite lane with the four-way flashers on. I saw that the car had a front flat tire. I asked my coworker if he didn’t mind if we asked the driver if they needed help. When we turned around the driver (a woman in her seventies with...
Eyes Wide First NoteSubmitted by James Stockton
I teach a music class for kids without training or confidence. I set up a stage in my barn. We call it "The Plum" (the road on my farm is Plum Hollow Lane). This isn't a typical success story, but the kids are playing and recording their own songs. They are gaining confidence and exploring their creative side.

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.
