Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice which make philanthropy necessary. Martin Luther King, Jr.
It's important to think good, speak good, and do good. If we want to see positive change in the world, then we need to connect to goodness. I try in everything I do, both in business and philanthropy, to make a positive change and do that by doing good. Shari Arison
The new world economic order is not an exercise in philanthropy, but in enlightened self-interest for everyone concerned. Carlos Fuentes
Never respect men merely for their riches, but rather for their philanthropy; we do not value the sun for its height, but for its use. Gamaliel Bailey
Philanthropy is not about giving money but about solving problems. While well-meaning, the idea of writing a check and calling it 'philanthropy' is extremely short-sighted and unfortunately, extremely pervasive. Naveen Jain
