"The approach of the glad Christmas tide always fills the heart with joy
and hope, and quickens into sweet activity a thousand loving thoughts
A Christmas wish . . . May you never forget what is worth remembering
or remember what is best forgotten.
Irish Quotes and Sayings |
May God's mercy and kindness surround you this
Christmas and carry you into a blessed new year.
"Are you willing to forget what you have done for other people, and to
remember what other people have done for you; to ignore what the world
owes you, and to think what you owe the world; to put your rights
in the background, and your duties in the middle distance, and your
chances to do a little more than your duty in the foreground; to see that
your fellow-men are just as real as you are, and try to look
behind their faces to their hearts, hungry for joy; to own that probably
the only good reason for your existence is not what you are going to
get out of life, but what you are going to give to life; to
close your book of complaints against the management of the universe,
and look around you for a place where you can sow a few seeds of happiness--are you willing to do these things even for a day? Then you
can keep Christmas.
Henry Van Dyke, The Spirit of Christmas
Helping Others |
Let us make this a new birthday of kindness and love that shall endure.
That is a Christmas hope, a Christmas wish.
Cyrus Townsend Brady, A Little Book for Christmas
"In this season of hope, let's help those who need it most - the homeless,
the hungry, the sick
and shut in. In this season of plenty, let's reach out to those
who struggle to find work or provide for their families.
In this season of generosity, let's give thanks and honor to our
troops and our veterans,
and their families who've sacrificed so much for us.
President Barack Obama
"This is the time of year when we remember that God sent his only
son 'to serve, not to be served'.
He restored love and service to the centre of our lives in the person
of Jesus Christ.
It is my prayer this Christmas Day that his example and teaching
will continue to bring
people together to give the best of themselves in the service of others."
Queen Elizabeth II
"Let us not forget that the first Christmas was a homeless one.
A humble man and woman had gone up from Galilee out of the
City of Nazareth to Bethlehem. There is a sense of desolation in
St. Luke's brief chronicle that Mary 'brought forth her firstborn
son, wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and laid Him in a manger;
because there was no room for them in the inn.'"
Harry S. Truman
