Hunger And Poverty quotes by Walden Bello
#1. The fact is that there is enough food in the world for everyone. But tragically, much of the world's food and land resources are tied up in producing beef and other livestock-food for the well off-while millions of children and adults suffer from malnutrition and starvation. #Quote by Walden Bello
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Oscar Arias
#2. The best way to perpetuate poverty is by spending on arms and military, and the best way to fight terrorism is by fighting the basic needs of humanity, because hunger and poverty perpetuate crime. #Quote by Oscar Arias

Hunger And Poverty quotes by Jonathan Kozol

Hunger And Poverty quotes by Bonnie Raitt
#7. How unthinkable that, in a country of such bursting plenty, so many people are facing ongoing hunger and poverty. If we are truly each other's keepers, let's support school lunches, food stamps, neighborhood garden projects, and so many other wonderful programs working to put an end to this cruel and needless blight once and for all. #Quote by Bonnie Raitt
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Bill Gates

Hunger And Poverty quotes by Saroo Brierley
#11. Not having enough to eat paralyzes you and keeps you living hour by hour instead of thinking about what you would like to accomplish in a day, week, month, or year. Hunger and poverty steal your childhood and take away your innocence and sense of security. But #Quote by Saroo Brierley
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Riane Eisler
#12. Women represent 70 percent of the 1.3 billion people in our world who live in absolute poverty. Consequently, as Joan Holmes, president of the Hunger Project, points out, any realistic efforts to change patterns of chronic hunger and poverty require changing traditions of discrimination against women. #Quote by Riane Eisler
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Fernando Ballano Gonzalo
#13. They say that democracy cannot be adopted; it has to be adapted to the African way of thinking. What does that mean? That the all-powerful and corrupt political leaders should stay in power? That Teodoro Obiang, the President of Equatorial Guinea, should appropriate all the country's money for himself, a country with income per capita of more than 20,000 euros thanks to oil but where people suffer hunger and poverty? Or that women should not have any rights? #Quote by Fernando Ballano Gonzalo
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Christian Nestell Bovee
#14. We should not so much esteem our poverty as a misfortune, were it not that the world treats it so much as a crime #Quote by Christian Nestell Bovee
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Stanisław Lem
#15. It is often said that the separation of the present reality from transcendence, so commonplace today, is pernicious in that it undermines the universe of fixed values. Because life on Earth is the only thing that exists, because it is only in this life that we can seek fulfillment, the only kind of happiness that can be offered to us is purely carnal. Heavens have not revealed anything to us; there are no signs that would indicate the need to devote ourselves to some higher, nonmaterial goals. We furnish our lives ever more comfortably; we build ever more beautiful buildings; we invent ever more ephemeral trends, dances, one-season stars; we enjoy ourselves. Entertainment derived from a nineteenth-century funfair is today becoming an industry underpinned by an ever more perfect technology. We are celebrating a cult of machines - which are replacing us at work, in the kitchen, in the field - as if we were pursuing the idealized ambience of the royal court (with its bustling yet idle courtiers) and wished to extend it across the whole world. In fifty years, or at most a hundred, four to five billion people will become such courtiers.
At the same time, a feeling of emptiness, superficiality, and sham sets in, one that is particularly dominant in civilizations that have left the majority of primitive troubles, such as hunger and poverty, behind them. Surrounded by underwater-lit swimming pools and chrome and plastic surfaces, we are suddenly struck by the thought that the la #Quote by Stanisław Lem
Hunger And Poverty quotes by James Burnham
#16. The economic egalitarianism of the liberal ideology implies ... the reduction of Westerners to hunger and poverty. #Quote by James Burnham
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#17. My experience working in the Grameen Bank has given me faith; an unshakable faith in the creativity of human beings. It leads me to believe that humans are not born to suffer the misery of hunger and poverty. They suffer now as they did in the past because we turn our heads away from this issue. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Hunger And Poverty quotes by M.F. Moonzajer
#18. We have written too many books about love and so few about hunger and poverty; that is why we need to wake up and leave stupidity behind. #Quote by M.F. Moonzajer
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#19. For black America needs a politics whose first mission isn't the reinforcement of the idea of black America; and a discourse of race that isn't centrally concerned with preserving the idea of race and racial unanimity. We need something we don't yet have: a way of speaking about black poverty that doesn't falsify the reality of black advancement; a way of speaking about black advancement that doesn't distort the enduring realities of black poverty. #Quote by Henry Louis Gates
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Brian S. Ference
#20. The wolf had begun hunting human prey. They were plentiful in the dark city streets and provided enough good meat to satiate his gnawing hunger. He was still very careful not to let any who saw him live. To do otherwise would displease the Master. He would only stalk those people that were foolish enough to walk alone in the night #Quote by Brian S. Ference
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Nadia Hashimi
#21. That's what being a mother is, isn't it? Waiting for a rounded belly to tighten in readiness; listening for the sound of hunger in the moonlit hours; hearing an eager voice call even in the camouflage of traffic, loud music, and whirring machines. It's looking at every door, every phone, and every approaching silhouette and feeling that slight lift, that tickle of opportunity to be again - mother. #Quote by Nadia Hashimi
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Rafe Esquith
#22. I found the role model to inspire me to handle such situations with more grace, maturity, and, most important of all, results...

I reread Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, and I realized I had found my hero in Atticus Finch...

It hit me like a thunderbolt. You see, Atticus knows everything Huck knows. He knows society is racist. He recognizes the violence, hypocrisy, injustice, and ignorance of society. He knows he is going to lose.

But Atticus does not light out for the territory. He goes into the courtroom to fight the fight as best as he can, because it is what he believes in. He doesn't do it because of the law, or the rules, or what people will think. He has his own code, and he lives by it as well as he can.

I still cry when I think about this. My classroom is my courtroom. I am going to lose more than I win. There are many times when, despite my efforts, I will lose children to poverty, ignorance, and, most tragically, a society that embraces mediocrity...

I've made plenty of mistakes since rediscovering Atticus, but I've always been able to hold my head up to my students. Atticus showed me the way. #Quote by Rafe Esquith
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Pope Francis
#23. While all too many people live in dire poverty, others are caught up in materialism and lifestyles which are destructive of family life and the most basic demands of Christian morality. #Quote by Pope Francis
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Stephen Nichols
#24. We are in need of a way out of our poverty of soul and the desperate state of our human condition. We find it in this child lying in a manger, who was and is Jesus Christ, the long-promised Messiah, Seed, Redeemer, and King. #Quote by Stephen Nichols
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#25. We stand at the intersection of extreme privilege and extreme poverty, and we have a question to answer: Do I care? Am I moved by the suffering of all nations? Am I even concerned about the homeless guy on the corner? Am I willing to take the Bible at face value and concur that God is obsessed with social justice? I won't answer one day for how the US government spent billions of dollars on the war in Iraq ($816 billion and counting, when $9 billion would solve the planet's water crisis[36]), nor will I get the credit for the general philanthropy of others. It will come down to what I did. What you did. What we did together. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Mark Twain
#26. I wish to become rich, so that I can instruct the people and glorify honest poverty a little, like those kind hearted, fat, benevolent people do. #Quote by Mark Twain
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Rob Young
#27. Armed with a hammer and sickle, singer and folklorist A. L. Lloyd hit the nail on the head and cut to the quick on page one of his monumental study of folk song: 'The mother of folklore is poverty.'3 #Quote by Rob Young
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Ron Garan
#28. If we adopt the same collaborative mindset and practices that got to the moon and back, and that built the International Space Station, we can alleviate poverty - and do much more. #Quote by Ron Garan
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Charles Dickens
#29. This is the even-handed dealing of the world!" he said. "There is noth-ing on which it is so hard as poverty; and there is nothing it professes tocondemn with such severity as the pursuit of wealth! #Quote by Charles Dickens
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Mark Zuckerberg
#30. We know that for every 1 person who get access to the Internet, one new job gets created, and one person gets lifted out of poverty. So in theory, going and connecting everyone on the Internet is a large national and even global priority. #Quote by Mark Zuckerberg
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Roman Payne
#31. In my errant life I roamed
to learn the secrets of women and men,
of gods and dreams.
I lived in wealth and poverty,
in fame and calamity.
I saw every country of our world,
I lived a thousand lives.
Many lives I spent, other lives I squandered,
for in my life I never traveled, all I did was wander. #Quote by Roman Payne
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Liam Hemsworth
#32. We had a black bear on the 'Hunger Games' set, and that was a little scary. #Quote by Liam Hemsworth
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Avina Celeste
#33. Do not feel ill will toward others. It will only bring negative energy into your life which will fester and grow as you let that anger into your heart. Hunger for revenge, for your pain to be put onto others, only hurts you more. Trust in yourself that you may recover from the pain they have caused and allow yourself to move on. #Quote by Avina Celeste
Hunger And Poverty quotes by A.L. Haddix
#34. What do you think?" she softly whispered. "I think I want nothing more than to please you." He whispered back while pulling her down to the bed. She looked at him with wanting and hunger. #Quote by A.L. Haddix
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Stephenie Meyer
#35. I stared into Jared's eyes, and the strangest thing happened. All the melting and melding I had just been through was shoved aside, into the smallest part of my body, the little corner that I took up physically. The rest of me yearned toward Jared with the same desperate, half-crazed hunger I'd felt since the first time I'd seen him here. This body barely belonged to me or to Melanie-it belonged to him. #Quote by Stephenie Meyer
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Rick Bragg
#36. The only thing poverty does is grind down your nerve endings to a point that you can work harder and stoop lower than most people are willing to. It chips away a person's dreams to the point that the hopelessness shows through, and the dreamer accepts that hard work and borrowed houses are all this life will ever be. #Quote by Rick Bragg
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Dale Ahlquist
#37. He seems so frivolous and so careless, but he gives money to beggars, not frivolously or carelessly, but because he believes in giving money to beggars, and giving it to them "where they stand".
He says he knows perfectly well all the arguments against giving money to beggars. But he finds those to be precisely the arguments for giving money to them. If beggars are lazy or deceptive or wanting a drink, he knows only too well his own lack of motivation, his own dishonesty, his own thirst.
He doesn't believe in "scientific charity" because that is too easy, as easy as writing a check. He believes in "promiscuous charity" because that is really difficult. "It means the most dark and terrible of all human actions - talking to a man. In fact, I know of nothing more difficult than really talking to the poor men we meet." (pp. 13-14) #Quote by Dale Ahlquist
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Aristophanes
#38. Look at the orators in our republics; as long as they are poor, both state and people can only praise their uprightness; but once they are fattened on the public funds, they conceive a hatred for justice, plan intrigues against the people and attack the democracy. #Quote by Aristophanes
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Arun Kolatkar
#39. When you hear her say,
'What else can an old woman do
on hills as wretched as these?'

You look right at the sky,
Clear through the bullet holes
she has for eyes.

And you look on
the cracks that begin around her eyes
spread beyond her skin

And the hills crack.
And the temples crack.
And the sky falls

with a plateglass clatter
around the shatter proof crone
who stands alone.

And you are reduced
to so much small change
in her hand. #Quote by Arun Kolatkar
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Anonymous
#40. Let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more.
Proverbs 31:7 #Quote by Anonymous
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#41. I am the man you've needed all you life. I can give you whatever you wish before you even realize you are wishing for it. I can fill your every longing , heal your every wound, right your every wrong. You have enemies? Not with me at your side. You have hunger? I will find the most succulent, ripe morsel and feed you with my bare hands. You have pain? I will ease it. Bad dreams? I will chase them asunder. Regrets? I will go back and undo them. Command me, Beauty, and I am yours. -Adam Black #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Virginia Woolf
#42. Better is it', she thought, 'to be clothed with poverty and ignorance, which are the dark garments of the female sex; better be quit of martial ambition, the love of power, and all the other manly desires if so one can more fully enjoy the most exalted raptures known to the humane spirit, which are', she said aloud as her habit was when deeply moved, 'contemplation, solitude, love. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Tina Beattie
#43. Religious fanaticism is not the only clear and present danger in our world. The greatest dangers confronting human kind are still those ancient enemies of war, poverty, ignorance and disease. These create the breeding grounds in which religious extremism flourishes, because people who have been betrayed by the world's political and economic systems often seek refuge in the alternatives offered by religion.

It is often said that the most dangerous person in the world is the person with nothing to lose. The more people in our world who have nothing to lose, the greater the danger of extremism is likely to become. If we are committed to struggling against religious fanaticism, and if we really do stand in awe of human potential, then we need to cultivate a much more intelligent debate about the role religion plays in nurturing that human potential through its shaping of ideas and through the hope and meaning it gives to many millions of lives. #Quote by Tina Beattie
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Max Ehrmann
#44. May I not forget that poverty and riches are of the spirit. Though the world knows me not, may my thoughts and actions be such as will keep me friendly with myself. #Quote by Max Ehrmann
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Stefan Molyneux
#45. We have to HIDE from each other because we think that we are the only ones BROKEN. We think we're the only ones whose original selves we ground up and smashed under the jack-booted heel of cultural lies and superstition, patriotism, war lust, war hunger, and a denial of AGGRESSION AGAINST CHILDREN THAT IS THE FOUNDATION OF CULTURE. Culture is everything that is NOT TRUE. If it's true, it's called 'math' or 'science' or 'facts'. Culture is the Stockholm syndrome we have with the historical lies that are convenient to the rules. We love the lies, because we don't think we can be loved if we don't. #Quote by Stefan Molyneux
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Joel Osteen
#46. I do think that religion has turned a lot of people off. Part of it is because it was all about the rules and was political. I think now people have a hunger for God, they want to have a relationship, but they don't want to be called religious. I'm not trying to get them to join my religion, I'm just trying to plant a seed of hope in their heart. #Quote by Joel Osteen
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Stewart Udall
#47. We Americans are a funny people. We say that our favorite outdoor recreation is 'walking for pleasure' (or so it is reported in Outdoor Recreation Trends). Yet the average housewife will jump into the family car-or one of them-to go around the corner for a bottle of aspirin and a television guide. The businessman who walks four blocks to an appointment is the exception rather than the rule. #Quote by Stewart Udall
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Laura Joh Rowland
#48. Let hunger sharpen your awareness. Abstain liquor and frivolous recreation, which dull the mind and weaken the body. #Quote by Laura Joh Rowland
Hunger And Poverty quotes by H.G.Wells
#49. For in the latter days of that passionate life that lay now so far behind him, the conception of a free and equal manhood had become a very real thing to him. He had hoped, as indeed his age had hoped, rashly taking it for granted, that the sacrifice of the many to the few would some day cease, that a day was near when every child born of woman should have a fair and assured chance of happiness. And here, after two hundred years, the same hope, still unfulfilled, cried passionately through the city. After two hundred years, he knew, greater than ever, grown with the city to gigantic proportions, were poverty and helpless labour and all the sorrows of his time. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Anne Lamott
#50. There is nothing you can buy, achieve, own, or rent that can fill up that hunger inside for a sense of fulfillment and wonder. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Anais Nin
#51. The secret of a full life is to live and relate to others as if they might not be there tomorrow, as if you might not be there tomorrow. It eliminates the vice of procrastination, the sin of postponement, failed communications, failed communions. This thought has made me more and more attentive to all encounters. meetings, introductions, which might contain the seed of depth that might be carelessly overlooked. This feeling has become a rarity, and rarer every day now that we have reached a hastier and more superficial rhythm, now that we believe we are in touch with a greater amount of people, more people, more countries. This is the illusion which might cheat us of being in touch deeply with the one breathing next to us. The dangerous time when mechanical voices, radios, telephones, take the place of human intimacies, and the concept of being in touch with millions brings a greater and greater poverty in intimacy and human vision. #Quote by Anais Nin
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Howard Zinn
#52. While some multimillionaires started in poverty, most did not. A study of the origins of 303 textile, railroad and steel executives of the 1870s showed that 90 percent came from middle- or upper-class families. The Horatio Alger stories of "rags to riches" were true for a few men, but mostly a myth, and a useful myth for control. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Hunger And Poverty quotes by George MacDonald
#53. How many people would like to be good, if only they might be good without taking trouble about it! They do not like goodness well enough to hunger and thirst after it, or to sell all that they have that they may buy it; they will not batter at the gate of the kingdom of heaven; but they look with pleasure on this or that aerial castle of righteousness, and think it would be rather nice to live in it. #Quote by George MacDonald
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Bobby Sands
#54. They won't break me because the desire for freedom, and the freedom of the Irish people, is in my heart. The day will dawn when all the people of Ireland will have the desire for freedom to show. It is then that we will see the rising of the moon. #Quote by Bobby Sands
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Francis Bacon
#55. The first remedy or prevention is to remove, by all means possible, that material cause of sedition whereof we spake; which is, want and poverty in the estate. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Craig Stone
#56. Nobody has to do anything wrong to end up living a life that feels like it's not their own, all they have to do is take a step back, and hope for the best. #Quote by Craig Stone
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Ayn Rand
#57. If you surrender everything to the government and give it total power to plan the whole economy, this will not guarantee your economic security, but it will guarantee the descent of the entire nation to a level of miserable poverty
as the practical results of every totalitarian economy, communist or fascist, have demonstrated. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Bulawayo, NoViolet
#58. I know that when she looks in the mirror she sees an ugly fat cow and that she hates her body because it's not what it's supposed to look like. This is why she is starving herself, which again her parents don't know. I also know that if she cannot get out of eating she goes to the bathroom and vomits it all. It was all in her diary that I found hidden under the bed while I was cleaning her room; I read it because hidden things are meant to be discovered. I wonder how she lives, how she deals with the hunger, those long, terrible claws that dig and dig in your stomach until you can barely see, barely walk upright, barely think, and you would do anything, anything, for even just a crumb. #Quote by Bulawayo, NoViolet
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Pema Chodron
#59. Hope and fear come from feeling that we lack something; they come from a sense of poverty. We can't simply relax with ourselves. We hold on to hope, and hope robs us of the present moment. We feel that someone else knows what is going on, but that there is something missing in us, and therefore something is lacking in our world. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Cherrie L Moraga
#60. In this country, lesbianism is a poverty-as is being brown, as is being a woman, as is being just plain poor. The danger lies in ranking the oppressions. The danger lies in failing to acknowledge the specificity of the oppression. The danger lies in attempting to deal with oppression purely from a theoretical base. Without an emotional, heartfelt grappling with the source of our own oppression, without naming the enemy within ourselves and outside of us, no authentic, non-hierarchical connection among oppressed groups can take place.

When the going gets rough, will we abandon our so-called comrades in a flurry of racist/heterosexist/what-have-you panic? To whose camp, then, should the lesbian of color retreat? Her very presence violates the ranking and abstraction of oppression. Do we merely live hand to mouth? Do we merely struggle with the "ism" that's sitting on top of our heads?

The answer is: yes, I think first we do; and we must do so thoroughly and deeply. But to fail to move out from there will only isolate us in our own oppression- will only insulate, rather than radicalize us. #Quote by Cherrie L Moraga
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Tessa Gratton
#61. I can feel her hunger, can see the want in her eyes. Her teeth grow sharp - sharp enough to eat me. And she wants to. She lets me see it, lets me feel the churning hunger that is so like rage. It gasps and begs in her stomach, the way my frenzy cuts and spirals in my chest. #Quote by Tessa Gratton
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Johan Norberg
#62. Poverty is not just a material problem. Poverty is something wider: it is about powerlessness, about being deprived of basic opportunities and freedom of choice. #Quote by Johan Norberg
Hunger And Poverty quotes by John Ashbery
#63. But it is the same thing we are all seeing,
Our world. Go after it,
Go get it boy, says the man holding the stick.
Eat, says the hunger, and we plunge blindly in again,
Into the chamber behind the thought #Quote by John Ashbery
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Ann Voskamp
#64. Our fall was, has always been, and always will be, that we aren't satisfied in God and what He gives. We hunger for something more, something other. #Quote by Ann Voskamp
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Ann Veneman
#65. Few things have more impact than nutrition on a child's ability to survive, learn effectively and escape a life of poverty. #Quote by Ann Veneman
Hunger And Poverty quotes by Lois Lowry
#66. There were no secrets in Village. It was one of the rules that Leader had proposed, and all of the people had voted in favor of it. Everyone who had come to Village from elsewhere, all of those who had not been born here, had come from places with secrets. Sometimes - not very often, for inevitably it caused sadness - people described their places of origin: places with cruel governments, harsh punishments, desperate poverty, or false comforts. #Quote by Lois Lowry
