Charity

"Do something for somebody everyday for which you do not get paid." Albert Schweitzer


Charity is an everyday life for all of us but few realize this.  It is because this term is always synonymous to giving money.  But it is not always the case.  Charity can be sharing time, lending ears, giving shoulders for somebody who needs any of them.  Giving others a compliment for a job well done is for me a charitable act.  Sending a message that could lift his spirit is a charity. And many more little acts.

Remember that those little acts are sometimes more powerful to effect change than those bigger ones.

Who is Albert Schweitzer?

According to Wikipedia, "Albert Schweitzer was a Franco-German theologian, organist, philosopher,  physician, and medical missionary.  He received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize for his philosophy of "Reverence of Life. Schweitzer's passionate quest was to discover a universal ethical philosophy, anchored in a universal reality, and make it directly available to all of humanity."

He's really a charitable man who inspires, who is inspiring, and who is an inspiration to the humanity.
