Famous quotes containing the word charity:
“Our inherent human charity and our religious beliefs will be taxed to the limit. No poor, rural, weak, or black person should ever have to bear the additional burden of being deprived of the opportunity of an education, a job, or simple justice.”

“How much methinks, I could despise this man,
But that I am bound in charity against it.”
