Inspirational Quotes About Life: Helping Other People

Updated on March 27, 2019

As the scope of Haiti’s terrible nightmare came full circle, it is estimated that over 200,000 people are dead and approximately 1.5 million are homeless in a country that is already stricken with poverty.  Hour by hour the need increases, as food, water and medical supplies are delivered to this devastated area.  In light of this tragedy, I have created a Hub about Famous Inspirational Quotes about offering help to others and thinking outside of yourself to give to those in need.  

In the time we have it is surely our duty to do all the good we can to all the people we can in all the ways we can.

~William Barclay

Everyone needs help from everyone.

~Bertolt Brecht

Never reach out your hand unless you’re willing to extend an arm.

~Elizabeth Fuller

You don’t live in a world all your own. Your brothers are here, too.

~Albert Schweitzer

A man is called selfish not for pursuing his own good, but for neglecting his neighbor’s.

~Richard Whately

In this world we must help one another.

~Jean de La Fontaine

Man absolutely cannot live by himself.

~Erich Fromm

We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.

~Herman Melville

A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle.

~Benjamin Franklin

Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together.

~Johann von Goethe

Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.

~Mark Twain

Sympathy is the charm of human life.

~Grace Aguilar

Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away.

~ Sir Arthur Helps

There is nothing in life but refraining from hurting others, and comforting those that are sad.

~Olive Schreiner

Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.

~Marcus Annaeus Seneca

If I can stop one heart from breaking,

I shall not live in vain;

If can ease one life the aching,

Or cool one pain,

Or help one fainting robin

Unto his nest again,

I shall not live in vain.

~Emily Dickinson

I expect to pass through life but once. If, therefore, there by any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do for any fellow being, let me do it now … as I shall not pass this way again.

~William Penn
