Helping Others Quotations
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.
Be willing to have it so. Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune.
Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another's pain, life is not in vain.
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]
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.
In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us.
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.
Many small people, in many small places, do many small things, that can alter the face of the world.
Every day you have the opportunity to learn and experience some-thing and some-one new. Seize the opportunity. Learn and experience everything you can, and use it to change the world.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
We can never get a re-creation of community and heal our society without giving our citizens a sense of belonging.

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. As I approached the intersection, the light turned red and I stopped with no problem. But when the light turned green, the tires could not find traction....

I worked for a small company about 10 years ago. One holiday season, two of the folks in our company adopted two families in need for the holidays. We all pitched in and made sure they had presents, food and all the trimmings to enjoy the holidays. I felt great that I was able to contribute and help families in...
Two Caring BoysSubmitted by Julie Whitney
I have two sons, ages 14 and 11. About four years ago we had a discussion about how lucky we were to be healthy and that there are many children who are sick. I told them about the Make a Wish Foundation and they wanted to do something to contribute to that great organization. They bought a bubble gum machine,...

My friend from Santa Rosa American LL showed me the ropes on how to play Baseball. Other players made fun of me because I wasn't that good. He kept on pushing me to follow my goal. Because of him, I am playing in the All-Stars. He's a great friend!

Salvatore DeVito Jr. DSubmitted by Deanna DeVito
I would like to share a heroic deed by my father, Salvatore DeVito Jr., during a family vacation to Florida. The action he did was not for fame but as a deed out of unselfishness and kindness. As you see, we were driving past a magnificent resort called the Gaylord Palms when we saw two women driving out of the...

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!!

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.
