Famous quotes containing the words work, charitable, community and/or service:

    All in all, the creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act. This becomes even more obvious when posterity gives its final verdict and sometimes rehabilitates forgotten artists.
    Marcel Duchamp (1887–1968)

    Against the charitable gesture there is no defence.
    Samuel Beckett (1906–1989)

    The community has no bribe that will tempt a wise man.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The Service without Hope
    Is tenderest, I think—
    ...
    There is no Diligence like that
    That knows not an Until—
    Emily Dickinson (1831–1886)
