Ellen G. White
Benevolence alone will not make a teacher, nor will learning alone do it. The gift of teaching is a peculiar talent, and implies a need and a craving in the teacher himself.
John Jay Chapman
Every account of a higher power that I've seen described, of all religions that I've seen, include many statements with regard to the benevolence of that power.

General benevolence, but not general friendship, made a man what he ought to be.
When people ask me about what I learned from martial arts, I don't talk about favorite punches or kicks, or about fights won or lost. I talk about learning self-discipline, about ethics and manners and benevolence and fairness.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
