Christmas is doing a little something extra for someone.
Helen Steiner Rice
Peace on earth will come to stay,
When we live Christmas every day.
At Christmas play and make good cheer, For Christmas comes but once a year.
We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.
George Mathew Adams
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 of 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.
Grace Noll Crowell
Whatever else be lost among the years, Let us keep Christmas still a shining thing: Whatever doubts assail us, or what fears, Let us hold close one day, remembering its poignant meaning for the hearts of men. Let us get back our childlike faith again.
A lovely thing about Christmas is that it's compulsory, like a thunderstorm, and we all go through it together.
Helen Steiner Rice
Bless us Lord, this Christmas, with quietness of mind; Teach us to be patient and always to be kind.
Eva K. Logue
A Christmas candle is a lovely thing; It makes no noise at all, But softly gives itself away; While quite unselfish, it grows small.
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 a melody that would last forever.
John Greenleaf Whittier
A little smile, a word of cheer, A bit of love from someone near, A little gift from one held dear, Best wishes for the coming year… These make a Merry Christmas!
Norman Vincent Peale
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
