Generosity is a great virtue in which people give or help others without expecting anything in return. Unfortunately is very seldom to see it in our society nowadays. Princess Diana had and believed in that virtue. She helped the people in need out of the goodness of her heart. According to author Derek Stanovsky, “Princess Diana lend her time and her fame to dozens of
Mother Teresa used her power of love from God to help those in desperate need. Mother Teresa didn’t get paid for anything she did nor would she except money from organizations or donations. It was not like Mother Teresa had an overwhelming amount of money but she was simply a person who devoted her entire life to serving others and helping those in need. Many people may not have noticed it, but all Mother Teresa had to do was touch a person and that was almost enough. She helped thousands of people in poor countries with ailing diseases, but most importantly see touched the souls of common men.
She saved hundreds of children and some of them have returned to Dohnavur to honor Amy’s memory. One of her most well-known quotes was,“You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving.” The reasons I most admire about Amy Carmichael was her courage and her strength. She never wavered in her faith to God. She went through many discouraging events in her life. She hid her hurt and only spoke to God and her closest friends so she wouldn’t hurt anyone else.
Getting to see her every chance had never been taken for granted, but were always counted as a blessing. She was very smart when it came to advice and how she loved her children. She was admired for many things, but most of all she was admired for telling her loved ones if we were right or wrong in situations, and still loving us, but never being mad, or judging us for the wrongs we may have committed; Even if they happened to be the worst decisions made. She stood for pure
The purpose of this journey was not only to find her sisters but to also discover her mother for who Suyuan truly was. In June’s eyes, Suyuan was always impossible to please and she was never on the same page as her mother who believes a person could be anything they wanted in America-the land of opportunities. But as the Joy Luck Club reminds June of how smart, dutiful, and kind her
Pope Leo XIII was impressed with Therese and she was soon accepted into the cloister and was finally able to join up with her two older sisters. Not even a year into Therese’s acceptance, she had grown so ill with a fever that people thought she was on her death bed. Then one day while Therese saw her sisters praying to the Virgin Mary statue in her room, she saw Mary smile at her and was instantly cured. From that point on, “Little Flower” as she was commonly called, lived a re-enlightened and spiritual life that led to her becoming a doctor of the church, an author, and a patron saint. According to the Church, a doctor is one who transmits the gospel, teaching by word and example and as of today there are only thirty-three Doctors of the Church.
The two rescuers I have found Meyer’s statement to be most true are Marie Chotel aka “Madame Marie” and Irene Opdyke. Madame Marie was your average, everyday woman. She had a huge heart and a great mind. When she helped rescue Odette and her mother she did what was natural to most simple people. Most simple people would not think twice about what they were doing or just how dangerous it was.
During Princess Diana's life she helped with many foundations and charities. But she finally dedicated herself to one cause in particular. Princess Diana became very involved with helping AIDS sufferers and their families. Starting in the early nineties until her death in 1997 Diana did everything she could to help all AIDS foundations. Even though she was regal, she did not consider herself better than any AIDS sufferer, and constantly held AIDS victims and visted them when everyone else was afraid of their touch.
They will never judge our past actions, instead only look to help because they really care. A role model is someone who we should never feel awkward talking to about our problems. A perfect role model for me is my mother. She is a wonderful human being. She’s smart, wise, ambitious, patient and such a loving person.
Ever since I was a little girl my Aunt Kim has played a major role as a positive woman influence on my life. Other than my mother, my Aunt Kim is one of the people I am closest to in the world, who I respect greatly and who I have always looked up to. Growing up my aunt never tried any drugs, she never drank before twenty-one, and never to get drunk, and was very involved in her church which I admired. One thing I have always struggled with is how others view me, which goes along with all we have been learning on woman and self-esteem, but my aunt has never cared about what others think and always puts a realistic view on these issues when I get upset. When I stress out or I become discouraged over anything, I always call her for her amazing and sound advice.
