Charity

From the last pages of “The Mystery of Life and Its Arts,” (Ruskin’s Works, XVIII, 182).

…do not let yourselves be deceived by any of the common talk of “indiscriminate charity.” The order to us is not to feed the deserving hungry, nor the industrious hungry, nor the amiable and well-intentioned hungry, but simply to feed the hungry.
