The more someone needs your assistance the greater is the act of kindness. The more unfortunate your guest, the happier you can feel that you are able to help him. -
When a man succeeds, he does it in spite of everybody, not with the assistance of everybody. - E. W. Howe, fully Edgar Watson Howe
The test of friendship is assistance in adversity – and that, too, unconditional assistance. Cooperation which needs consideration is a commercial contract, and not friendship. Conditional cooperation is like adulterated cement which does not bind. - Mahatma Gandhi, fully Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, aka Bapu
Decency - generosity - cooperation - assistance in trouble - devotion to duty; these are the things that are of greater value than surface appearances and custom. - Dwight Eisenhower, fully Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower
My question is, what can we hope to achieve with reason, when all the material and assistance of experience are taken away? - Immanuel Kant
There are eight degrees in almsgiving… Supreme above all is to give assistance to a fellow man who has fallen on evil times by presenting him with a gift or loan, or entering into a partnership with him, or procuring him work, thereby helping him to become self-supporting. Next best is giving alms in such a way that the giver and recipient are unknown to each other. This is, indeed, the performance of a commandment from disinterested motives. - Maimonides, given name Moses ben Maimon or Moshe ben Maimon, known as "Rambam"
We will be a better country when each religious group can trust its members to obey the dictates of their own religious faith without assistance from the legal structure of the country. - Margaret Mead
The moment you commit and quit holding back, all sorts of unforseen incidents, meetings and material assistance will rise up to help you. The simple act of commitment is a powerful magnet for help - Napoleon Hill
Make friends with the angels, who though invisible are always with you. Often invoke them, constantly praise them, and make good use of their help and assistance in all your temporal and spiritual affairs. - Saint Francis de Sales
Our policy is directed not against any country or doctrine but against hunger, poverty, desperation, and chaos. Its purpose should be the revival of a working economy in the world so as to permit the emergence of political and social conditions in which free institutions can exist. Such assistance, I am convinced, must not be on a piecemeal basis as various crises develop. Any assistance that this Government may render in the future should provide a cure rather than a mere palliative. Any government that is willing to assist in the task of recovery will find full cooperation, I am sure, on the part of the United States Government. Any government which maneuvers to block the recovery of other countries cannot expect help from us. Furthermore, governments, political parties or groups which seek to perpetuate human misery in order to profit therefrom politically or otherwise will encounter the opposition of the United States. - George Marshall, fully George Catlett Marshall, Jr.
