But even with the inspiration of others, it's understandable that we sometimes
think the world's problems are so big that we can do little to help.
On our own, we cannot end wars or wipe out injustice, but the cumulative
impact of thousands of small acts of goodness can be bigger than we imagine.
Queen Elizabeth II, Christmas Message 2016

Whether these leanings towards greatness (insanity!) will ever materialize
remains to be seen, but I certainly have the subjects in my mind.

the war. Whether I shall succeed or not, I cannot say, but my diary will
be a great help.
Please note that your health, both mental and physical, is the
most important area of your life as you can't achieve anything or help
others if you are not well.
Martin Formato, Discover Yourself
I firmly believe that a soul that is not healthy cannot help others to heal.
A gentle soul does not need to put up walls or false fronts to protect itself.
Instead it is real and says to the world, "This is who I am; warts and all."
Cathy Grant, The Journey
When you are in a position to help the needy and decline to do
so because of stinginess, no previous help from the person and
so forth; you have acted in pure selfishness.

Pass It On |
Use your gifts to teach and help others. Acknowledge them as gifts (even if only in your mind). Take some time to list your strengths
as well as the ways in which you could share them with the world
around you and how that truly is a gift to others.
Beth Bunchman, Cultivating Gratitude: a guided journal for a positive mindset
I hear him (Martin Luther King Jr) preaching at his Ebenezer Church in Atlanta: "I choose to identify
with the underprivileged. I choose to identify with the poor. I choose to give
my life for the hungry…. This is
the way I'm going. If it means suffering a little bit, I'm going that way.
If it means sacrificing, I'm going that way. If it means dying for them, I'm going
that way, because I heard
a voice say, 'Do something for others.'"
Vincent Harding, Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community?
If you offer your free time to help out at a charity or to read to
an older person or simply to give someone something without ever
expecting a thank you, it’s amazing how much more you are able to
notice the blessings which fill your life.
Josh Austin, Wealth: 6 Ways to Make it Count

who will need to.

Inspirational Poems |
We become engaged with advancing the cause of Christ by helping
out at homeless shelters, by being a caring person in our classrooms,
by being friendly and kind with our co-workers (and not just at Christmas),
by shoveling our neighbor's sidewalk when it snows, by making a meal
for the single mom who lives in the apartment next door.
Sarah Bowling, How to Keep Your faith in an Upside Down World
Help your old neighbor, give your seat in the subway to someone
who needs it, buy a coffee for a homeless
man that you see, bring flowers for your colleagues without a reason.
Make someone smile, even for a brief second,
and you will see how your day will change instantly for the best.

Life And Take Your Self Development To The Next Level
It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely
try to help another without helping himself.

Don't deceive yourself; laughing at someone's weakness is not the way
to reveal your strength.
Your strength is in the help you offer, not the mockeries you deliver!
Israelmore Ayivor, Daily Drive 365
Success has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself.
It's what you do for others.
As much as we are always willing to help others who are in need, or who
ask specifically for our assistance, doesn't mean we don't need help ourselves
on occasion. We all have are own plus and minuses - we are not a
solid rock without imperfections because each rock has it's own fissures
and crevices. We all need a friendly ear, a sympathetic friend,
or an open and honest opinion at many points in our life.
Catherine Pulsifer, Helping And Reaching Out Goes Both Ways
Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end
of your arm... As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands.
One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
Helping others, encouraging others, are often acts of being kind
that have more meaning that you may realize.

American entrepreneurship and innovation.

Benjamin Franklin Quotes |
Safeguarding the rights of others is the most noble and beautiful
end of a human being.
A fundamental concern for others in our individual and community
lives would go a long way in making the world the better place

All that we send into the lives of others comes back into
Quotes about Life |
You have mastered the art of living not for yourself alone, but for others, and this concern has stamped thee above all, as a man among men.

Poems about Life |
Don't hold back your gift, because you never know when you might
be helping someone. We all have a gift to give.

of the poor.

through a difficult time.
