Learn about our Editorial Process Updated on 01/14/20 We wait a year to celebrate Christmas. Yet when we plan our celebration, we tend to forget those who serve us unfailingly. We gather around the Christmas tree with friends and family. But we forget to invite those who are alone in this world. This Christmas, bring joy to others with an act of kindness. Use these inspirational Christmas quotes to teach you the real meaning of giving. George Matthew Adams, "The Christmas Heart": "Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years... Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart." Taylor Caldwell: "I am not alone at all, I thought. I was never alone at all. And that, of course, is the message of Christmas. We are never alone. Not when the night is darkest, the wind coldest, the world seemingly most indifferent. For this is still the time God chooses." Ann Schultz: "Let us keep Christmas beautiful without a thought of greed, that it might live forevermore to fill our every need, that it shall not be just a day, but last a lifetime through, the miracle of Christmas time that brings God close to you." Helen Keller: "The only real blind person at Christmas-time is he who has not Christmas in his heart." Charles Dickens: "It was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God Bless Us, Every One!" Dale Evans Rogers: "Christmas, my child, is love in action. Every time we love, every time we give, it's Christmas." Bess Streeter Aldrich: "Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl. But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart... filled it, too, with melody that would last forever." Alexander Smith: "Christmas is the day that holds all time together." Wendy Cope: "Bloody Christmas, here again, let us raise a loving cup, peace on earth, goodwill to men, and make them do the washing up." Louisa May Alcott: "The rooms were very still while the pages were softly turned and the winter sunshine crept in to touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting." Alfred, Lord Tennyson: "The time draws near the birth of Christ: The moon is hid; the night is still; the Christmas bells from hill to hill answer each other in the mist." Mother Teresa: "It is Christmas every time you let God love others through you... yes, it is Christmas every time you smile at your brother and offer him your hand." Orson Welles: "Now I'm an old Christmas tree, the roots of which have died. They just come along and while the little needles fall off me replace them with medallions." Ruth Carter Stapleton: "Christmas is most truly Christmas when we celebrate it by giving the light of love to those who need it most." W. C. Jones: "The joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens, easing other's loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas." Bob Hope: ""My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?"
