What's this quote from? It seems to be a saying from Chinese Buddhism:

“Doing good without receiving feedback; suffering for all living creatures; giving all charitable and pious deeds.”

Thanks!

An example of the traditional religious faith of Taiwan is “Doing good without receiving feedback; suffering for all living creatures; giving all charitable and pious deeds.”
Seems to be attributed to a work, "Guanyinfozu – Discussion the Traditional Religious Faith of Taiwan from Different Aspects by CHEN, YUEH-FONG*" (*Visiting Professor, Department of Religious Studies, Hsuan Chuang University, and the chief of the Ecological Research Center of Taiwan) and as the above suggests 'traditional religious faith of Taiwan' or a general slogan rather than anything from 'Chinese Buddhism' per se...

Thanks. Actually, I was starting from this, but was trying to figure out where he got that quote from. Sorry for the confusion.

Just to note: It's not really "... without receiving feedback", but "Doing good without expectation of reward."

You know what this is...?! What's it from? (Is it just a saying, or a quote from somewhere?) And what is it in Chinese?

"Do good to others without expecting a reward" 施恩莫望報 is a common Chinese phrase. Having done a quick search I could not locate the source.
