Heartwarming Quotes on Generosity

Francis of Assisi Quote "For it is in giving that we receive."

Emily Dickinson spiritual quote on compassion


If you want others to be happy, practise compassion.

If you want to be happy, practise compassion.

– St. Thomas Aquinas


This morning, as I kindle the fire on my hearth,
I pray that the flame of God’s love may burn in
my heart and in the hearts of all I meet today.

I pray that no envy or malice,
no hatred or fear, may smother the flame.

I pray that indifference and apathy, contempt and pride,
may not pour like cold water on the fire.

Instead, may the spark of God’s love
light the love in my heart,
that it may burn brightly through the day.

And may I warm those who are lonely,
whose hearts are cold and lifeless,
so that all may know the comfort of God’s love.

– From the Gaelic tradition


If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should see sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Sacred One,

Teach us love, compassion and honor
That we may heal the earth and heal each other.

My words are tied in one with the great mountains, with the great rocks, with the great trees.
In one with my body and my heart.
Do you all help me with supernatural power?

And you day, and you night.
All of you see me, One with the world!

– From a Yokuts prayer


Spiritual Quote by Stephen Mitchell


I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.

Simple in actions and in thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies, you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all being in the world.

Lao Tzu
