Benevolence

Benevolence is a world of itself – a world which mankind, as yet, have hardly begun to explore. We have, as it were, only skirted along its coasts for a few leagues, without penetrating the recesses, or gathering the riches of its vast interior. - Horace Mann

Everyone feels benevolent if nothing happens to be annoying him at the moment. - C. S. Lewis

How quickly a truly benevolent act is repaid by the consciousness of having done it. - Hosea Ballou

The unaffected language of real feeling and benevolence is easily understood, and is never ridiculous. - Maria Edgeworth
