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

    Anyone can do any amount of work, provided it isn’t the work he is supposed to be doing.
    Robert Benchley (1889–1945)

    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)

    Jesus would recommend you to pass the first day of the week rather otherwise than you pass it now, and to seek some other mode of bettering the morals of the community than by constraining each other to look grave on a Sunday, and to consider yourselves more virtuous in proportion to the idleness in which you pass one day in seven.
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)

    Books can only reveal us to ourselves, and as often as they do us this service we lay them aside.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
