This book contains 250 stories about good deeds, including this one: When opera singer Ernestine Schumann-Heink was young and just starting her career, pianist-conductor Hans von Bülow learned that she did not have enough food to feed herself and her children. Therefore, he invited her to eat dinner at his house twice a week and then take home enough food to feed her children.
This book contains 250 stories about good deeds, including these two: 1) One day, little Nancy Sinatra held a party at home, and one of her little guests accidentally knocked over and broke one of a pair of porcelain birds. The little guest was horrified, but Nancy’s father, the great Frank Sinatra, deliberately broke the other porcelain bird. He then put his arm around the little guest and said, “That’s OK, kid. Accidents happen. 2) At the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Bowery mission, soprano Frances Alda sang at a benefit. Afterward, she was pleased to overhear what some of the people in the audience had to say about her performance. One person said, “She sang just as good for us as she sang for those rich folks at the opera house.” His friend replied, “You said it—and can that woman make a noise!”
