John Greenleaf Whittier Quotes

Somehow, not only for Christmas, But all the long year through, The joy that you give to others, Is the joy that comes back to you. And the more you spend in blessing, The poor and lonely and sad, The more of your heart’s possessing, Returns to you glad.

And melt not in an acid sect, The Christian pearl of charity

His daily prayer, far better understood in acts than in words, was simply doing good.

One brave deed makes no hero.

Beauty seen is never lost. God’s colors all are fast.
