Charitable Quotations

Every charitable act is a stepping stone toward heaven.
Henry Ward Beecher

There is no virtue in compulsory government charity, and there is no virtue in advocating it. A politician who portrays himself as 'caring' and 'sensitive' because he wants to expand the government's charitable programs is merely saying that he's willing to try to do good with other people's money.
P. J. O'Rourke

Immediately after 11 September, the U.S. closed down the Somali charitable network Al-Barakaat on grounds that it was financing terror. This achievement was hailed one of the great successes of the 'war on terror.' In contrast, Washington's withdrawal of its charges as without merit a year later aroused little notice.
Noam Chomsky

Religious organisations have an automatic tax-free charitable status.
Richard Dawkins

For my name and memory I leave to men's charitable speeches, and to foreign nations and the next ages.
