A Quote from St. Basil the Great

The bread you do not use is the bread of the poor.
The garment hanging in your wardrobe is the garment of him who is naked.

The shoes you do not wear are the shoes of one who is barefoot.
The money you keep locked away is the money of the poor.
The acts of charity you do not perform are so many injustices you commit.
