Famous quotes containing the word charitable:

    Whensoever any affliction assails me, mee thinks I have the keyes of my prison in mine owne hand, and no remedy presents it selfe so soone to my heart, as mine own sword. Often meditation of this hath wonne me to a charitable interpretation of their action, who dy so: and provoked me a little to watch and exagitate their reasons, which pronounce so peremptory judgements upon them.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)

    She was so charitable and so pitous
    She wolde wepe, if that she saugh a mous
    Kaught in a trappe, if it were deed or bledde.
    Geoffrey Chaucer (1340?–1400)

    God protect us from the efficient, go-getter businesswoman whose feminine instincts have been completely sterilized. Wherever women are functioning, whether in the home or in a job, they must remember that their chief function as women is a capacity for warm, understanding and charitable human relationships.
    Agnes E. Meyer (1887–1970)
