Little Charity in Eudora Welty's A Visit of Charity - Little Charity in Eudora Welty's A Visit of Charity        In the short story of "A Visit of Charity" by Eudora Welty, a fourteen-year-old girl visits two women in a home for the elderly to bring them a plant and to earn points for Campfire Girls.  Welty implies through this story, however, that neither the society that supports the home nor the girl, Marian, knows the meaning of the word "charity."  The dictionary defines "charity" as "the love of man for his fellow men: an act of good will or affection."  But instead of love, good will, and affection, self-interest, callousness, and dehumanization prevail in this story.  Welty's depiction of the setting and her portrayal of Marian dram...   [tags: Visit of Charity Essays]

She is there simply because she wants to gain points; when asked who she would like to visit, Marian simply states, “any of them will do.” She brought flowers simply because they added a point, and hid her apple ou...   [tags: Visit Charity]

I assert, however that legislating charity through the modern Welfare system as it appears in the United States is proper because the purpose of Welfare is not charity as such and it does not fall within the definition of charity as provided by Aquinas, and therefore it does not conflict with Aquinas’s view of charity in relationship to law as outlined in the Treatise on Law....   [tags: U.S. Government ]

The Historical Visit of President Nixon to China - As I understand the historical connection between China and United States, they were and in some sense still are both rivals, which began with Mao Zedong driving American-supported Chang out of China soon after the unconditional surrender of the defeat of aggressive Imperial Japan in 1945. Mao took over China and forced Chang to beat a hasty retreat to Taiwan Island. Then in l950, the world witnessed the fierce armed confrontation between Mao led China versus the United Nations' forces with the full backing of United States during the three year Korean War which eventually became a stalemate to this day....   [tags: American Presidents, diplomatic] 764 words

The Effects of Charity on People - The Effects of Charity on People Many people would argue that charity is a waste of time and does not have the effect they want because the people in the developing world are in so much debt that they cant get out of it.

The Effect of Charity on People - The Effect of Charity on People In part I do agree with this statement, as I do think that charities do not have the entire effect that Christians want, but I do not feel that it makes the poor people lazy and keeps them poor. A charity would struggle to have the entire effect that Christians would want. The ultimate aim of a charity of course would be to eliminate poverty throughout the world, and this has certainly not been achieved. Even with all the charities in the world today, the individual charities such as Tearfund, Christian aid, and every other charity working towards the world poverty crisis, there has been little change in its state....   [tags: Papers Donation nonprofit Essays] 556 words

Duty versus Charity: Why a Distinction is Essential - ... Here lies the major difference between the two – a duty is something that must be done in order for the existence of society, whereas charity is voluntary and uncompelled. It is this distinction that Singer wishes to erase, or at least blur. He wants to make monetary help to the distant needy a dutiable action rather than charity on a moral level. In fact, Singer proposes that everyone who possesses a reasonable amount of resources must donate a significant portion of their wealth and assets, reducing their self to “the level of marginal utility” (Singer 32)....   [tags: Peter Singer's article Famine]
