The article discusses charitable acts, focusing on the late businessman Andrew Carnegie. The parable of the Good Samaritan was often quoted by former Great Britain Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher while in office. Carnegie lived by the biblical text which addresses the accumulation and disposition of wealth. By the time Carnegie died in his sleep at age 83, he had given away almost all that he possessed.
