Famous quotes containing the word helping:

    To me it seems that to give happiness is a far nobler goal that to attain it: and that what we exist for is much more a matter of relations to others than a matter of individual progress: much more a matter of helping others to heaven than of getting there ourselves.
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)
