Poor People quotes by Theodore Schultz

Poor People quotes by Paul Broun
#4. I represent poor people, I represent working people. I represent senior citizens. I represent family businesses. I represent people who don't have the wherewithal to hire overpriced Washington lobbyists and lawyers. I want to send the powers back to the states and the people. #Quote by Paul Broun
Poor People quotes by Eddie Murphy
#5. The best way you hurt rich people is by turning them into poor people #Quote by Eddie Murphy
Poor People quotes by Cornel West
#6. My aim is not to provide excuses for black behavior or to absolve blacks of personal responsibility. But when the new black conservatives accent black behavior and responsibility in such a way that the cultural realities of black people are ignored, they are playing a deceptive and dangerous intellectual game with the lives and fortunes of disadvantaged people. We indeed must criticize and condemn immoral acts of black people, but we must do so cognizant of the circumstances into which people are born and under which they live. By overlooking these circumstances, the new black conservatives fall into the trap of blaming black poor people for their predicament. It is imperative to steer a course between the Scylla of environmental determinism and the Charybdis of a blaming-the-victims perspective.
#Quote by Cornel West
Poor People quotes by Mother Teresa
#7. I think it is very beautiful for the poor to accept their lot, to share it with the passion of Christ. I think the world is being much helped by the suffering of the poor people. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Poor People quotes by T.V. Rao
#8. Defining Happiness in the changing world is difficult, even you find very poor people are happy with few things. Real success comes from the quality of our relationships and the emotions that we experience each day. Many unhappy feelings will
disappear if we think Have I done something today that improved the world? Have I accomplished something worthwhile?Have I helped someone less fortunate? Every Unhappy moment reduces enjoying the present moment. always think Have I felt grateful for the incredible gift of being alive? Happiness lies only with us keeping the
moments of life Happy is art, We cannot catch happiness but only follow it let us try to perfect it Dr.T.V.Rao MD #Quote by T.V. Rao
Poor People quotes by Linda Tirado
#9. So let's stop saying that poor people are irresponsible parents and start admitting that society doesn't seem to believe that if you are poor you are entitled to be a parent at all. Given #Quote by Linda Tirado
Poor People quotes by Desmond Tutu
#10. All the United States, it is a society that is split like to the bottom, that had very poor people in the country that is one of the wealthiest countries. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Poor People quotes by Nicole Holofcener
#11. People say to me all the time that I threw some money into some guy's coffee cup [by accident, thinking they were poor]. People do make the same sort of mistake. I've made attempts to volunteer that have been calamitous! #Quote by Nicole Holofcener
Poor People quotes by Penn Jillette
#12. It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people yourself is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral, self-righteous, bullying laziness. #Quote by Penn Jillette
Poor People quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#13. My mother has always been sickly; and though she has only gone to the hospital when she has been compelled to, it has cost a great deal of money, and my father's life has been practically given up to it. "If only I knew how much the operation costs," says he. "Have you not asked?" "Not directly. I cannot do that - the surgeon might take it amiss and that would not do; he must operate on Mother." Yes, I think bitterly, that's how it is with us, and with all poor people. They don't dare ask the price, but worry themselves dreadfully beforehand about it; but the others, for whom it is not important, they settle the price first as a matter of course. And the doctor does not take it amiss from them. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Poor People quotes by Bruce Sterling
#14. We might be on the brink of an apocalypse if, instead of poor people with suicide bombs killing middle class guys, middle-class people with suicide bombs started killing rich guys. #Quote by Bruce Sterling
Poor People quotes by Manning Marable
#15. Socialism lost its way largely when it became decoupled from the processes of democracy. My vision of a socially just society is one that is deeply democratic, that allows people's voices to be heard, where people actually govern. C.L.R James sometimes used the slogan "every cook can govern" to speak to the concept that there should be no hierarchies of power between those who lead and their constituencies. This idea is related to Antonio Gramsci's argument that the goal of the revolutionary party is for every member to be an intellectual. That is, everyone has the capacity, has the ability to articulate a vision of reality and to fight for the realization of their values and goals in society. Gramsci is pointing toward the development of a strategy that is deeply democratic, one where we don't have elitist, vanguardist notions of what society should look like, but have humility and the patience to listen to and learn from working class and poor people, who really are at the center of what any society is. #Quote by Manning Marable
Poor People quotes by Russell Simmons
#16. The difference between blues, jazz, rock n' roll and rap is that rap stayed poor. Even the white rappers are poor. It's scarier to look at poor people; it makes everyone uncomfortable. Their pain is something that people would like to see swept under the rug. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Poor People quotes by Dianne Harman Cornered Coyote
#17. Maria, it sounds like he was insane. Rational people don't intentionally addict people. I feel sorry for those poor people who were unsuspecting victims. #Quote by Dianne Harman Cornered Coyote
Poor People quotes by Thomas Sowell
#18. Wal-Mart has done more for poor people then any ten liberals, at least nine of whom are almost guaranteed to hate Wal-Mart. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Poor People quotes by Cesar Chavez
#19. When poor people get involved in a long conflict, such as a strike or a civil rights drive, and the pressure increases each day, there is a deep need for spiritual advice. Without it, we see families crumble, leadership weaken, and hard workers grow tired. #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Poor People quotes by Mother Teresa
#20. I try to give to the poor people for love what the rich could get for money. No, I wouldn't touch a leper for a thousand pounds; yet I willingly cure him for the love of God. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Poor People quotes by Jon Stewart
#21. Corporations are the only reason the tax code is so complicated in the first place. Those off-shore loopholes didn't get carved out by poor people. #Quote by Jon Stewart
Poor People quotes by Jeri Smith-Ready
#22. This time of year," she said, "people's consciences gnaw at them. They give away truckloads of canned goods and quote Dickens and wring their hands over the 'less fortunate.'" We boarded the Metro and took seats perpendicular to each other. "But God forbid anyone should address why they're poor in the first place, or try to change the structures that keep them poor. Then the 'less fortunate' turn into 'welfare queens' and 'derelicts.' But if I were a lobbyist whoring on behalf of some transnational corporation, I'd never hear the word 'derelict.'"

"So when it comes to taking care of poor people," I said, "if Mother Teresa is the Hallmark card, then you're the electric bill. #Quote by Jeri Smith-Ready
Poor People quotes by Bill Gates
#23. China has many successful entrepreneurs and business people. I hope that more people of insight will put their talents to work to improve the lives of poor people in China and around the world, and seek solutions for them. #Quote by Bill Gates
Poor People quotes by Sandra Cisneros
#24. I think that it's not enough to do the little Band-Aid things of having celebrities come and read to children. Not that we don't need to read to children, but we don't need to just do it one time and feel good about it. I think we need to think long range about poor people and their relationship to libraries. #Quote by Sandra Cisneros
Poor People quotes by Ernst F. Schumacher
#25. It is quite wrong to assume that poor people are generally unwilling to change; but the proposed change must stand in some organic relationship to what they are doing already, and they are rightly suspicious of, and resistant to, radical changes proposed by town-based and office-bound innovators who approach them in the spirit of: "You just get out of my way and I shall show you how useless you are and how splendidly the job can be done with a lot of foreign money and outlandish equipment. #Quote by Ernst F. Schumacher
Poor People quotes by Robert Higgs
#26. Income inequality has no necessary connection with poverty, the lack of material resources for a decent life, such as adequate food, shelter, and clothing. A society with great income inequality may have no poor people, and a society with no income inequality may have nothing but poor people. #Quote by Robert Higgs
Poor People quotes by Robert T. Kiyosaki
#27. Whenever you feel short or need of something, give what you want first, and it will come back in buckets. That is true for money, a smile, love or friendship. I know it is often the last thing a person may do, but it has always worked for me. I trust that the principle of prosperity is true, and I give what I want. I want money, so I give money, and it comes back in multiples. I want sales, so I help someone else sell something, so sales come to me. I want contacts, and I help someone else get contacts. Like magic, contacts come to me. I heard a saying years ago that went: god does not need to receive, but humans need to give. My rich dad would often say: poor people are more greedy than rich people. He would explain that if a person is rich, that person is providing something that other people wanted...whenever I think people aren't smiling at me, I simply began smiling and saying hello. Like magic, the next thing I know: I'm surrounded by smiling people. It is true that you world is only a mirror of you. So that's why I say, teach and you shall receive. #Quote by Robert T. Kiyosaki
Poor People quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#28. Tell me you didn't," she groaned, knowing it would not be the truth. "Please tell me you didn't take advantage of these poor people."

"I didn't," he chirped.

"Liar."

With an irritated sigh he tried to convince her. "Amora, you're not seeing things from an immortal perspective. The people who built this temple…"

"Temple?" she cried, cutting him off. "You forced these people to build you a temple? Why? Because all of a sudden you're God now?"

Perturbed by her interruption, he raised a warning finger. "No, no, Amora, not God. But from their viewpoint I may seem a bit…..god-like."

She rolled her eyes in an exaggerated manner.

"If you would let me finish," he went on, "these particular individuals had no part in the construction of that monument; it was their ancestors who erected it. And I must say, they did a fine job. My likeness has weathered the centuries quite well."

"You're despicable."

He frowned at the insult. "Nobody was forced to build us a temple, Amora. They chose to do so."

"You were that impressive to them, huh?"

"Apparently." His eyes twinkled at the memory. He took a few steps toward the distant city, pulling Eena along. "Come on, let's go have some fun."

"No way." She planted her feet, refusing. Surprisingly it put a stop to him.

"And why not?"

"Because your sudden appearance will upset them! No doubt you'll wa #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Poor People quotes by Oliver Markus Malloy
#29. Have you ever played Monopoly? It's a board game designed to teach kids capitalism. And what happens in the end? The winner has all the money, and everyone else has nothing. Woohoo! So much fun! That's literally how America works. That's why there are a few super rich people who own almost everything, and tens of millions of dirt poor people who have nothing. #Quote by Oliver Markus Malloy
Poor People quotes by Ralph Bakshi
#30. Its all big money, high rent, high prices in New York City now. The poor people completely got rolled over. I've never seen anything like it in my life. It's disgusting. #Quote by Ralph Bakshi
Poor People quotes by Alan W. Watts
#31. We therefore work, not
for the work's sake, but for money - and money is supposed to get us
what we really want in our hours of leisure and play. In the United
States even poor people have lots of money compared with the wretched
and skinny millions of India, Africa, and China, while our middle andupper classes (or should we say "income groups") are as prosperous as
princes. Yet, by and large, they have but slight taste for pleasure. Money
alone cannot buy pleasure, though it can help. For enjoyment is an art
and a skill for which we have little talent or energy. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Poor People quotes by T. Harv Eker
#32. Rich people are committed to being rich. Poor people want to be rich. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
Poor People quotes by James Castleton, MD, Mending Of A Broken Heart
#33. The less fortunate will never have what they need until we who are more fortunate realize how little we require to be happy. #Quote by James Castleton, MD, Mending Of A Broken Heart
Poor People quotes by Katherine Boo
#34. What was unfolding in Mumbai was unfolding elsewhere, too. In the age of global market capitalism, hopes and grievances were narrowly conceived, which blunted a sense of common predicament. Poor people didn't unite; they competed ferociously amongst themselves for gains as slender as they were provisional. And this undercity strife created only the faintest ripple in the fabric of the society at large. The gates of the rich, occasionally rattled, remained unbreached. The politicians held forth on the middle class. The poor took down one another, and the world's great, unequal cities soldiered on in relative peace. #Quote by Katherine Boo
Poor People quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#35. Of all the myriads of God, Daridranarayana is the most sacred inasmuch as it represents the untold millions of the poor people as distinguished from the few rich people. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Poor People quotes by T. Harv Eker
#36. Poor people will do almost anything to avoid problems. They see a challenge and they run ... the secret to success, my friends, is not to try to avoid or get rid of or shrink from your problems; the secret is to grow yourself so that you are bigger than your problems. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
Poor People quotes by David Mitchell
#37. Always, it is the poor people who pay. And always, it is the poor people's women who pay the most. #Quote by David Mitchell
Poor People quotes by Dorothea Lange
#38. We know by now how to photograph poor people. What we don't know is how to photograph affluence - whose other face is poverty. #Quote by Dorothea Lange
Poor People quotes by Leila Janah
#39. Through my studies, I became increasingly disillusioned with the international aid system. I think we systematically deny poor people the chance to engage as equals in the global economic order. At best, we give them handouts or tiny loans and hope they will suffer a bit less from extreme poverty. We don't view them as equals. #Quote by Leila Janah
Poor People quotes by Jim Wallis
#40. I met the president when he was president-elect at a meeting in Austin. He spoke of his faith. He spoke of his desire for a compassionate conservatism, for a faith-based initiative that would do something for poor people. #Quote by Jim Wallis
Poor People quotes by Tupac Shakur
#41. The ground is the symbol for the poor people; the poor people is gonna open up this whole world and swallow up the rich people. It's gonna be like - there might be some cannibalism out this mother. They might eat the rich. #Quote by Tupac Shakur
Poor People quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#42. The Other World? Yes, there is the Other World: Go to the districts of the poor people, you will find the Other World, the World of Poverty! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Poor People quotes by Rick Scott
#43. If poor people are spending their own money, it is amazing how fast they will figure out how to keep a lid on medical bills. #Quote by Rick Scott
Poor People quotes by Amitav Ghosh
#44. Well what can you expect?' I retorted. 'Those people are, as you say, simple and uneducated. Wasn't it Marx who said that peasants are like sacks of potatoes? Is it surprising that their lives are filled with gods and goddesses and demons?'
She glanced at me again. 'You really do not care for ordinary people, do you?'
The imputation of elitism made me bridle. 'Why you're quite wrong!' I said. 'I consider myself a person of the left. As a student I was a Maoist fellow traveller. I've always stood in solidarity with peasants and workers.'
'Oh yes, certo!' she said, suppressing a giggle. 'I knew many Maoists and fellow travellers in Italy. They had every regard for the bellies and bodies of poor people - but not, I think, for what is in their heads. #Quote by Amitav Ghosh
Poor People quotes by Oscar Hijuelos
#45. Nightclubs are the equivalent of a Catholic Church in a poor country. You hear a lot of stuff about churches filled with gold while the people are starving. But what elitists don't get is that for poor people, the church is their own mansion. Nightclubs fill the same function. #Quote by Oscar Hijuelos
Poor People quotes by Jim Rohn
#46. Somebody says, 'Well, I can't be concerned about other people. About the best I can do is to take care of myself' Well, then you will always be poor. #Quote by Jim Rohn
Poor People quotes by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
#47. For some time they talked of reformation; those who apparently desired it most favoring it only for their own profit, and the people who were to be the gainers expecting little and saying nothing. For a long time these poor people, either from distrust, incredulity, or despair, hesitated to ask for their rights: it is said that the habit of serving had taken the courage away from those old communes, which in the middle ages were so bold. #Quote by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
Poor People quotes by Newt Gingrich
#48. I will continue to find ways to help poor people find a job, get a job, and learn someday to own the job. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Poor People quotes by Scott McClanahan
#49. That's the best way to do anything--get a bunch of poor people to do it. #Quote by Scott McClanahan
Poor People quotes by Katherine Boo
#50. Food wasn't one of the amenities at Cooper, the five-hundred-bed hospital on which millions of poor people depended. Nor was medicine. "Out of stock today" was the nurses' official explanation. Plundered and resold out of supply cabinets was an unofficial one. What patients needed, families had to buy on the street and bring in. #Quote by Katherine Boo
Poor People quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#51. Even when uttered by Democrats, "middle class" often sounds like a mealymouthed way of saying, "Us, and not them," where "them" includes poor people, snake handlers and those with pierced tongues. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Poor People quotes by Bartolome De Las Casas
#52. The reader may ask himself if this is not cruelty and injustice of a kind so terrible that it beggars the imagination, and whether these poor people would not fare far better if they were entrusted to the devils in Hell than they do at the hands of the devils of the New World who masquerade as Christians. #Quote by Bartolome De Las Casas
Poor People quotes by William Bradford
#53. And I may not omit here a special work of God's providence. There was a proud and very profane young man [aboard the Mayflower], one of the seamen, of a lusty, able body, which made him the more haughty; he would always be contemning the poor people in their [sea]sickness, and cursing them daily with grievous execrations, and did not let to tell them, that he hoped to help cast half of them overboard before they came to their journey's end, and to make merry with what they had; and if he were by any gently reproved, he would curse and swear most bitterly.
But it pleased God before they came half seas over, to smite this young man with a grievous disease, of which he died in a desperate manner, and so was himself the first that was thrown overboard. Thus his curses light on his own head; and it was an astonishment to all his fellows, for they noted it to be the just hand of God upon him. #Quote by William Bradford
Poor People quotes by Stephen Richards
#54. Hungry people are always thinking about food; poor people are always thinking about wealth. Obsessive thinking can kill your dreams! #Quote by Stephen Richards
Poor People quotes by Bernice L. McFadden
#55. To Harlan, New York City was as chaotic and thrilling as the three-ringed circus that came through Macon each spring.

No matter which direction his head spun, there was something new and exciting to behold: white men with long beards and black hats as tall as chimney stacks; poor people begging for money; rich people walking white poodles tethered to long leather leads; blind people tapping walking sticks; fat people munching soft, salted pretzels; and middle-of-the-road people like themselves. #Quote by Bernice L. McFadden
Poor People quotes by Martin Luther
#56. And yet neither the bishops nor canons care how the poor people live or die, for whom nevertheless Christ has died, and who are not permitted to hear Him speak with them as the true Shepherd with His sheep. #Quote by Martin Luther
Poor People quotes by Mark Helprin
#57. We are like poor people, who have nothing but each other, and are happy. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Poor People quotes by Chris Crass
#58. As long as there are rich people who have poor people they can send to fight their wars.. We will never have peace #Quote by Chris Crass
Poor People quotes by Adolf Hitler
#59. When I go out in the morning and see these men standing in their queues and look into their pinched faces, then I believe I would be no Christian, but a very devil, if I felt no pity for them, if I did not, as did our Lord two thousand years ago, turn against those by whom today this poor people are plundered and exposed. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Poor People quotes by Barbara Stocking
#60. Climate change is ... a gross injustice-poor people in developing countries bear over 90% of the burden-through death, disease, destitution and financial loss-yet are least responsible for creating the problem. Despite this, funding from rich countries to help the poor and vulnerable adapt to climate change is not even 1 percent of what is needed. #Quote by Barbara Stocking
Poor People quotes by Ann Cotton
#61. All countries have poor people. Yet it's a very rare country which understands the indignities of poverty, while education systems maintain the status quo. The children of the elite go to the best schools and get the best jobs, not because they are the best. We're not taking advantage of the intellectual power on this planet. #Quote by Ann Cotton
Poor People quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#62. The day shit is worth money, poor people will be born without an asshole #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Poor People quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#63. The direction of all economic affairs is in the market society a task of the entrepreneurs. Theirs is the control of production. They are at the helm and steer the ship. A superficial observer would believe that they are supreme. But they are not. They are bound to obey unconditionally the captain's orders. The captain is the consumer ... [Consumers] make poor people rich and rich people poor. They determine precisely what should be produced, in what quality, and in what quantities. #Quote by Ludwig Von Mises
Poor People quotes by Manny Pacquiao
#64. I would only spend a week or two in the Philippines, most probably the week during my birthday because I am planning to give away Christmas gifts to the poor people of General Santos just like what I did last year. #Quote by Manny Pacquiao
Poor People quotes by Gloria Steinem
#65. When I was growing up, you were supposed to marry and therefore didn't plan ahead. Planning ahead is one of the few reliable measures of class in the sense that rich people plan for generations forward and poor people plan for Saturday night, and by that measure, women have been lower class. We were less likely to plan ahead because we're more likely to think that who we marry and our children are going to dictate our plans. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Poor People quotes by Nilesh (Neil) Jain
#66. Democracy is the process to elect government of the upper-class people, by the poor people and for the corporate people. #Quote by Nilesh (Neil) Jain
Poor People quotes by Caitlin Moran
#67. The working class do things differently. I can hear it. I can see we are not wrong. We are not just poor people who have not yet evolved into something else - i.e., people with money. We are something else - just as we are. The working classes do it differently. We are the next thing. We power popular culture - just as, before, we powered the Industrial Revolution. The past is theirs, but the future's mine. They're all out of time. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Poor People quotes by Anne Frank
#68. Give and you shall receive, much more that you ever thought possible. Give and give again. People who give will never be poor! #Quote by Anne Frank
Poor People quotes by Russell Simmons
#69. Hip-hop is a voice for voiceless poor people. #Quote by Russell Simmons
Poor People quotes by Karl Hess
#70. Government programs aim at getting money for poor people. Our hope was that knowledge would in the long run be more useful, provide more money, and eventually strike at the system-causes of poverty. Government believes that poverty is just a lack of money. We felt, and continue to feel, that poverty is actually a lack of skill, and a lack of the self-esteem that comes with being able to take some part of one's life into one's own hands and work with others towards shared-call them social-goals. #Quote by Karl Hess
Poor People quotes by Will Smith
#71. You can't break poor people mentality. Once you grow up poor, you don't take anything for granted. It can have the negative side also because you can never truly be relaxed. #Quote by Will Smith
Poor People quotes by Dalai Lama
#72. When a person is in a miserable situation, then, yes, it is difficult to develop genuine compassion toward others. That's why I find it difficult to say to poor people, "Please have compassion toward millionaires." That's not easy. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Poor People quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#73. Mother Atkinson thought that every one should have a trade, or something to make a living out of , for rich people may grow poor, you know, and poor people have to work ... so when I saw how happy and independent those young ladies were, I wanted to have a trade, and then it wouldn't matter about money, though I like to have it well enough. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Poor People quotes by Jimmy Carter
#74. In the bible homosexuality is condemned, but along with divorce and greed and callousness toward poor people. So its elevation to a highest priority among some religious groups has been very disturbing to me. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Poor People quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#75. Rich people read their bills. Poor people dread theirs. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Poor People quotes by John Waters
#76. I like rap music. But bragging about being rich to poor people is really offensive. I want to hear a rap song about buying a Cy Twombly painting or dating a museum curator. I want to hear about that kind of rich. #Quote by John Waters
Poor People quotes by Cornel West
#77. There are different varieties and forms of capitalism. There are priorities within the capitalist society so that you can have countervailing forces come in and empower your working people and your poor people. There are capitalist societies that do not have poverty. America needs to understand that. #Quote by Cornel West
Poor People quotes by Angela Y. Davis
#78. One of the reasons that so many people of color and poor people are in prison is that the deindustrialization of the economy has led to the creation of new economies and the expansion of some old ones – I have already mentioned the drug trade and the market for sexual services. At the same time, though, there are any number of communities that more than welcome prisons as a source of employment. Communities even compete with one another to be the site where new prisons will be constructed because prisons create a significant number of relatively good jobs for their residents #Quote by Angela Y. Davis
Poor People quotes by Iman Abdulmajid
#79. We grew up as poor people but we never knew poverty. I still love and miss the Somalia I grew up in. Things changed, when my father became a diplomat later on. #Quote by Iman Abdulmajid
Poor People quotes by Tony Campolo
#80. Of the 22 industrialized nations of the world, we're dead last in per capita giving to poor people. #Quote by Tony Campolo
Poor People quotes by David Graeber
#81. All rich countries now employ legions of functionaries whose primary function is to make poor people feel bad about themselves. #Quote by David Graeber
Poor People quotes by Carl Safina
#82. Poor people don't want to stay poor. But there's a misconception that it's somehow "unfair" to poor people, or, worse, racist, to let them in on the main secret of wealthy, educated and successful people: smaller families mean larger lives. #Quote by Carl Safina
Poor People quotes by Rita Mae Brown
#83. There are more differences between poor people than between middle-class people. #Quote by Rita Mae Brown
Poor People quotes by Jesse Jackson
#84. Most poor people are not on welfare ... I know they work. I'm a witness. They catch the early bus. They work every day. They raise other people's children. They work every day. They clean the streets. They work every day. They drive vans with cabs. They work every day. They change beds you slept in these hotels last night and can't get a union contract. They work every day ... #Quote by Jesse Jackson
Poor People quotes by Liya Kebede
#85. Creative new health strategies like micro-insurance for poor people or Kangaroo care for pre-term babies are transforming health outcomes in even the most low-resource settings. Dedication and innovation are transforming health care worldwide. #Quote by Liya Kebede
Poor People quotes by Bill Gates
#86. Most poor people live in the poorest countries. #Quote by Bill Gates
Poor People quotes by Pele
#87. Football is the only sport where you put people together, it doesn't matter if you are rich, or poor, or black, or white. It is one nation. This is the beauty of football. #Quote by Pele
Poor People quotes by Paul Farmer
#88. It is very expensive to give bad medical care to poor people in a rich country. #Quote by Paul Farmer
Poor People quotes by Joel Sternfeld
#89. No one can say how long the process of human extinction might take, but as it proceeds, the same global order will prevail that always prevails: rich nations will find ways to protect themselves and make themselves comfortable, while the poor nations and the poor people of the planet will suffer. #Quote by Joel Sternfeld
Poor People quotes by Eyden I.
#90. Morals are like social classes, there are poor and rich people. #Quote by Eyden I.
Poor People quotes by Paul Beatty
#91. My father had a theory that poor people are the best drivers because they can't afford to carry car insurance and have to drive like they live, defensively. #Quote by Paul Beatty
Poor People quotes by Jacqueline Novogratz
#92. Today, poor people the world over are seeking opportunity and choice to have greater dignity in their lives - and they want to do it themselves, even if they need a little help. Today we have the tools and technologies to bring real opportunities to people all across the world. #Quote by Jacqueline Novogratz
Poor People quotes by Daniel Tosh
#93. No touching ... Cashmere is highly sensitive to the oil in poor people's fingers. #Quote by Daniel Tosh
Poor People quotes by Narendra Modi
#94. The government belongs to the poor people of the country. We are custodian of people's hope. For whom should the government be? For educated people or few others. Government should be for the poor. If rich want to educate their children, they can send anywhere. If rich fall ill, hundreds of doctors are at service. So the foremost responsibility of the government should be to listen to the poor and work for them. If we do not work for the poor, the people will never pardon us. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Poor People quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#95. If enough individuals are full of despair and anger in their hearts, there will be violence in the streets. If enough individuals are full of greed and fear in their hearts, there will be racism and oppression in society. You can't remove the external social symptoms without treating the corresponding internal personal diseases...Pope Francis draws our attention to the 'invisible thread' of the market, which he describes as 'the mentality of profit at any price, with no concern for social exclusion or the destruction of nature.' This mentality generates inequality, which in turn generates 'a violence which no police, military, or intelligence resources can control'...changed individuals cross racial, religious, ethnic, class or political boundaries to build friendships. These friendship work like sutures, healing wounds in the social fabric. They 'humanize the other,' making it harder for groups to stereotype or scapegoat. They create little zones where the beloved community is manifest...They help people envision the common good--a situation where all are safe, free, and able to thrive. As my friend Shane Claiborne says, our problem isn't that rich people don't care about poor people; it's that all too often, rich people don't know any poor people. Knowing one another makes interpersonal change and reconciliation possible. (p. 167-168) #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Poor People quotes by Roger Ailes
#96. I love rich people. Any time I needed a job, I went to a rich person. I like poor people, but they never had a job for me. #Quote by Roger Ailes
Poor People quotes by Barney Frank
#97. For many of those who had historically supported welfare programs in the broadest sense, it was perfectly reasonable to enact legislation in which poor people were the objects of efforts to assist them. #Quote by Barney Frank
Poor People quotes by Chuck Schumer
#98. We need to make sure middle-class people are able to pay the bills. We need to make sure that poor people don't starve. Those are values, too. #Quote by Chuck Schumer
Poor People quotes by Josh Lieb
#99. Crime is for poor people. You don't need to rob the bank if you own it. #Quote by Josh Lieb
Poor People quotes by Rajneesh
#100. You shout and the valleys shout, or you sing and the valleys sing. Each heart is a valley. If you pour love into it, it will respond. The first lesson of love is not to ask for love, but just to give. Become a giver. And people are doing just the opposite. Even when they give, they give only with the idea that love should come back. It is a bargain. They don't share, they don't share freely. They share with a condition. They go on watching out of the corner of their eye whether it is coming back or not. Very poor people ... they don't know the natural functioning of love. #Quote by Rajneesh
Poor People quotes by Megan McArdle
#101. If we wanted a program to help the majority of the population, we'd offer loan guarantees to help poor people get access to reliable cars so that they could have a better shot at getting - and keeping - a well-paying job ... A small amount of capital could make a much bigger difference in their lives than extra student loan relief for middle-class college kids would. #Quote by Megan McArdle

Poor People quotes by Neale Donald Walsch
#103. Your nation is the richest, most powerful on the Earth, and it has one of the highest infant mortality rates. Why? Because poor people cannot afford quality pre-natal and post-natal care - and your society is profit driven. #Quote by Neale Donald Walsch

Poor People quotes by Rudolfo Anaya
#105. Bah! Do you think the poor people of the barrio pay for the upkeep of the Church? No! Wealth flows from wealth! And sources of wealth need stability to exist! And the Church provides stability! We teach the poor how to bear their burden; they are promised the kingdom of heaven, which is far more important than the little gains your strike would make … #Quote by Rudolfo Anaya
Poor People quotes by Kiran Desai
#106. His lines had been honed over centuries, passed down through generations, for poor people needed certain lines; the script was always the same, and they had no option but to beg for mercy. #Quote by Kiran Desai

#107. Poverty must have many satisfactions, else there would not be so many poor people. #Quote by Don Herold
Poor People quotes by Anne Frank
#108. The question is very understandable, but no one has found a satisfactory answer to it so far. Yes, why do they make still more gigantic planes, still heavier bombs and, at the same time, prefabricated houses for reconstruction? Why should millions be spent daily on the war and yet there's not a penny available for medical services, artists, or for poor people?
Why do some people have to starve, while there are surpluses rotting in other parts of the world? Oh, why are people so crazy? #Quote by Anne Frank
Poor People quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#109. The honest poor can sometimes forget poverty. The honest rich can never forget it. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Poor People quotes by Matthew Desmond
#110. But it was not enough simply to perceive injustice. Mass resistance was possible only when people believed they had the collective capacity to change things. For poor people, this required identifying with the oppressed, and counting yourself among them - which was something most trailer park residents were absolutely unwilling to do. #Quote by Matthew Desmond
Poor People quotes by Zac Poonen
#111. Ephesians 4:26 says "be angry but do not sin". How to know the difference ? We can know the difference from the life of Jesus.When they insulted Him, spoke evil of Him, beat Him, spatted on Him, crucified Him.. He was not angry. He was never angry when it concerned Himself . He was angry when God's house was being defiled ..when poor people were being exploited, when the Pharisees and the elders would not allow the man with a withered hand to be healed on the sabbath day..
So, in anything concerning ourselves we should never be angry but when it concern the purity of God's house and the way people exploits others then we need to be angry.
There is an anger that is holy and there is an anger that is sinful. #Quote by Zac Poonen
Poor People quotes by Amanda Heger

Poor People quotes by Ruth Bader Ginsburg
#113. The impact of all these restrictions is on poor women, because women who have means, if their state doesn't provide access, another state does ... It makes no sense as a national policy to promote birth only among poor people. #Quote by Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Poor People quotes by Marco Rubio
#114. The way to turn our economy around is not by making rich people poorer, it's by making poor people richer. #Quote by Marco Rubio
Poor People quotes by Wang Shaoguang
#115. Measured in terms of the World Bank poverty standard, the number of poor people in China fell from 652 million to 135 million between 1981 and 2004 - in other words, more than half a billion people were lifted out of poverty. The number of poor people in the developing world as a whole declined by only 400 million over the same period. In other words, but for China, there would have been an increase in the number of poor people in the developing world. No wonder a World Bank report said that "a fall in the number of poor of this magnitude over such a short period is without historical precedent. #Quote by Wang Shaoguang
Poor People quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#116. We talked about the nice poor people who went to the electric chair; and we talked about the rich bastards who didn't. We talked about religious people who had perversions. We talked about a lot of things. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Poor People quotes by William Shakespeare
#117. Look how the world's poor people are amazed at apparitions, signs and prodigies! #Quote by William Shakespeare
Poor People quotes by Ottessa Moshfegh
#118. You can see wealth in people no matter what they're wearing. It's in the cut of their chins, a certain gloss to the skin, a drag and pause to their responsiveness. When poor people hear a loud noise, they whip their heads around. Wealthy people finish their sentences, then just glance back. #Quote by Ottessa Moshfegh
Poor People quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#119. We must powder our wigs; that is why so many poor people have no bread. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Poor People quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#120. Differences about poor and rich people: Poor people ask me where's my money from; Rich people invite me for a coffee and never ask it. #Quote by Robin Sacredfire
Poor People quotes by Brian Welch
#121. I worshipped money so much that it ruined my life. Money is not my god. I just want to manage His money for Him, for the poor people, the lost kids. I just love everybody. #Quote by Brian Welch
Poor People quotes by Charles Eisenstein
#122. Community is woven from gifts, which is ultimately why poor people often have stronger communities than rich people. If you are financially independent, then you really don't depend on your neighbors for anything. You can just pay someone to do it. #Quote by Charles Eisenstein
Poor People quotes by George W. Bush
#123. First, let me make it very clear, poor people aren't necessarily killers. Just because you happen to be not rich doesn't mean you're willing to kill. #Quote by George W. Bush

Poor People quotes by Jonathan Kozol
#127. Evil exists," he says, not flinching at the word. "I believe that what the rich have done to the poor people in this city is something that a preacher would call evil. Somebody has power. Pretending that they don't so they don't need to use it to help people-that is my idea of evil. #Quote by Jonathan Kozol
Poor People quotes by Bill Strickland
#128. What we discovered was that the only thing wrong with poor people is they don't have any money, which happens to be a curable condition. #Quote by Bill Strickland
Poor People quotes by T. Harv Eker
#129. Rich people choose to get paid based on results. Poor people choose to get paid based on time. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
Poor People quotes by T. Harv Eker
#130. Let me put it bluntly: anyone who says that money isn't important doesn't have any! Rich people understand the importance of money and the place it has in our society. On the other hand, poor people validate their financial ineptitude by using irrelevant comparisons. They'll argue, "Well, money isn't important as love." Now, is that comparison dumb or what? What's more important, your arm or your leg? Maybe they're both important. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
Poor People quotes by Dinesh D'Souza

Poor People quotes by Jeff Hobbs
#132. In the wake of his breakdown, Oswaldo had become hyperattuned to the way he, and people like him, were perceived. For his first three years at Yale, he'd been frustrated by these perceptions, feeling that they were inescapable, allowing that caged feeling to overwhelm him. The perspective granted him by two weeks of near total isolation had led him to believe that he––and in a much bigger way, Rob––had only propagated the ignorance of their peers. Because they did get stoned all the time, they did get angry, they did dress like thugs, they did talk shit about a college education that might set them up for fulfilling lives, they did set themselves apart. For Oswaldo, the issue had ceased to be a philosophical and historical one, and instead had come to revolve around a simple goal: to graduate from Yale without making that task harder than it needed to be. After all, that was the point of college––not freedom, not alcohol, not relationships, but to obtain a degree. #Quote by Jeff Hobbs
Poor People quotes by Bill Bryson
#133. It is perhaps dangerous to conclude too much about the character and intentions of a nation based on the snacks menu in a railway carriage, but I couldn't help wonder if Scottish nationalism hasn't gone a little too far now. I mean, these poor people are denying themselves simple comforts like KitKats and Cornish pasties and instead are eating neeps and foot medication on grounds of patriotism. Seems a bit unnecessary to me. #Quote by Bill Bryson
Poor People quotes by David Foster Wallace
#134. Progressive liberals seem incapable of stating the obvious truth: that we who are well off should be willing to share more of what we have with poor people not for the poor people's sake but for our own; i.e., we should share what we have in order to become less narrow and frightened and lonely and self-centered people. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Poor People quotes by Barney Frank
#135. I have done a lot of work for affordable housing, rental housing. I understand the rap on me and other liberals is, oh, we push poor people into homeownership. And it's exactly the opposite of the case. We were trying to prevent those kinds of bad loans. #Quote by Barney Frank
Poor People quotes by Imbolo Mbue
#136. Just to have somewhere that you can wake up in the morning and go to is a good thing. But what about the future? That is the problem, sir. I could not even marry my wife. I did - " "What do you mean, you couldn't marry? Poor people get married every day." "Yes, they can, sir. Everyone can marry, sir. But not everyone can marry the person that they want. #Quote by Imbolo Mbue
Poor People quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#137. I have in all honesty believed that two people with similar names must have similar characters, that an unfamiliar word - be it Turkish or foreign - must be semantically similar to a word spelt like it, that the soul of a dimpled woman must carry something of the soul of another dimpled woman i knew before, that all fat people are the same, that all poor people belong to a fraternity about which i know nothing, that there must be a link between peas and Brazil - not just because Brazil is Breziliya in Turkish and the word for pea is bezelye but also because the Brazilian flag has, it seems, an enormous pea on it ... #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Poor People quotes by George Orwell
#138. Rich people are poor people with money. #Quote by George Orwell
Poor People quotes by Chris Hedges
#139. When everybody was, you know, pushing for multiculturalism in lead institutions, it really meant filtering a few people of color or women into university departments or newsrooms, while carrying out this savage economic assault against the working poor and, in particular, poor people of color in deindustrialized pockets of the United States. Very few of these multiculturalists even noticed. I am all for diversity, but not when it is devoid of economic justice. Cornel West has been one of the great champions, not only of the black prophetic tradition, the most important intellectual tradition in our history, but the clarion call for justice in all its forms. There is no racial justice without economic justice. And while these elite institutions sprinkled a few token faces into their hierarchy, they savaged the working class and the poor, especially poor people of color.

Much of the left was fooled by the identity politics trick. It was a boutique activism. It kept the corporate system, the one we must destroy, intact. It gave it a friendly face. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Poor People quotes by Stephen Richards
#140. I know a lot of wealthy people, and yet not many of them drive a Rolls Royce or a Ferrari! However, I also know some of poor people on the verge of bankruptcy driving Bentleys! #Quote by Stephen Richards
Poor People quotes by Molly Crabapple
#141. The truth is, the vast majority of medical care for lower income people in America is shitty. If you go to a free clinic to receive any form of care, the majority of those will be overcrowded with nurses who are tired because they have to work with so many people. We are not a country that invests public money into taking care of poor people, so we usually rely on clinics with very overburdened and underpaid staff. #Quote by Molly Crabapple
Poor People quotes by Madonna Ciccone
#142. We're very privileged as Americans - it's easy to forget about the rest of the world and to think that your problems are the most important problems. Even poor people in America live better than poor people most everywhere else. #Quote by Madonna Ciccone

Poor People quotes by Agnes Varda
#146. I wanted to catch the problem of consumption, waste, poor people eating what we throw away, which is a big subject. But I didn't want to become a sociologue, an ethnographe, a serious thinker. I thought I should be free, even in a documentary which has a very serious subject. #Quote by Agnes Varda
Poor People quotes by Roberto Clemente
#147. I am from the poor people; I represent the poor people. I like workers. I like people that suffer because these people have a different approach to life from the people that have everything and don't know what suffering is. #Quote by Roberto Clemente
Poor People quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#148. Don't order any black things. Rejoice in his memory; and be radiant: leave grief to the children. Wear violet and purple. Be patient with the poor people who will snivel: they don't know; and they think they will live for ever, which makes death a division instead of a bond. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw

Poor People quotes by Barbara Comyns
#150. She cleared her throat once or twice, and said something about poor people should eat a lot of herrings, as they were most nutritious, also she had heard poor people eat heaps of sheeps' heads and she went on to ask if I ever cooked them. I said I would rather be dead than cook or eat a sheep's head; I'd seen them in butchers' shops with awful eyes and bits of wool sticking to their skulls. After that helpful hints for the poor were forgotten. #Quote by Barbara Comyns
Poor People quotes by Jonathan Kozol
#151. I want to correct something I told you once,' she says. 'You asked me once if I thought white people wish that Puerto Rican and black people would just die or go away. I thought it over and I changed my mind. I don't think they wish that we would die. I think they wish that we were never born. Now that we're here, I think they don't know what they ought to do. I think that that's the biggest problem in their minds about poor people.' She adds politely, 'I'm not talkin' about all of the white people. Some of them feel this way. Some of them don't. Some of them don't feel nothin'. Some are nice people but they can't get nothin' done and so they put it out of mind. #Quote by Jonathan Kozol
Poor People quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#152. If we want to help poor people out, one way to do that is to help them explore and use their own capability. Human being is full of capacity full of capability, is a wonderful creation. But many people never get a chance to explore that, never, no that she nor he has that #Quote by Muhammad Yunus

Poor People quotes by Yusuf Hamied
#159. If you look at the world's top 50 drugs being sold today, they are being marketed and sold by companies that did not invent them. I respect patents. I'll pay a royalty. But I shouldn't be denied the right to produce drugs for poor people at reasonable prices. #Quote by Yusuf Hamied
Poor People quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#160. The consumption of food was a sacrament of success. A man who carried a great stomach before him was thought to be in his prime. Women went into hospitals to die of burst bladders, collapsed lungs, overtaxed hearts and meningitis of the spine. There was a heavy traffic to the spas and sulphur springs, where the purgative was valued as an inducement to the appetite. America was a great farting country. All this began to change when Taft moved into the White House. His accession to the one mythic office in the American imagination weighed everyone down. His great figure immediately expressed the apotheosis of that style of man. Thereafter fashion would go the other way and only poor people would be stout. #Quote by E.L. Doctorow
Poor People quotes by Robert Kiyosaki
#161. The world is full of smart, poor people. #Quote by Robert Kiyosaki
Poor People quotes by Walter Block
#162. We must conclude, in the light of this evidence, that governments now enjoy an unmerited reputation for solving the problems of human rights and discrimination. On the contrary, affirmative action, EPFEW, and various anti‑discrimination initiatives have backfired, harming the very minorities they were supposed to protect. Government programs such as minimum wage laws, anti‑usury codes, rent controls, and zoning legislation have had unforeseen and negative consequences for the minority peoples, who have been among the greatest victims of discrimination. #Quote by Walter Block
Poor People quotes by Dean Griffiths
#163. We live in a world where we give our pounds to those who have too much and our pennies to those who have too little #Quote by Dean Griffiths
Poor People quotes by Eileen Myles
#164. Because rich people need poor friends (but not too poor!) to maintain their connection to the struggle that spawned them even if they never struggled. Poor people tend to know what's going on plus they are often good-looking, at least when they are young and even later they are the cool interesting people the rich person once slept with, so the poor person always feathers the nests of the rich. #Quote by Eileen Myles
Poor People quotes by Anthony Trollope
#165. Of all such reformers Mr. Sentiment is the most powerful. It is incredible the number of evil practices he has put down: it is to be feared he will soon lack subjects and that when he has made the working classes comfortable, and got bitter beer put into proper-sized pint bottles, there will be nothing further for him left to do. Mr. Sentiment is certainly a very powerful man, and perhaps not the less so that his good poor people are so very good; his hard rich people so very hard; and the genuinely honest so very honest. Namby-pamby in these days is not thrown away if it be introduced in the proper quarters. Divine peeresses are no longer interesting, though possessed of every virtue; but a pattern peasant or an immaculate manufacturing hero may talk as much twaddle as one of Mrs. Ratcliffe's heroines, and still be listened to. Perhaps, however, Mr. Sentiment's great attraction is in his second-rate characters. If his heroes and heroines walk upon stilts as heroes and heroines, I fear, ever must, their attendant satellites are as natural as though one met them in the street: they walk and talk like men and women, and live among our friends a rattling, lively life - yes, live, and will live till the names of their callings shall be forgotten in their own, and Buckett and Mrs. Gamp will be the only words left to us to signify detective police officer or a monthly nurse. #Quote by Anthony Trollope
Poor People quotes by Matthew Desmond

Poor People quotes by Hans-Hermann Hoppe
#169. More paper money cannot make a society richer, of course - it is just more printed paper. Otherwise, why is it that there are still poor countries and poor people around? But more money makes its monopolistic producer (the central bank) and its earliest recipients (the government and big, government-connected banks and their major clients) richer at the expense of making the money's late and latest receivers poorer. #Quote by Hans-Hermann Hoppe

Poor People quotes by Harry Shearer
#172. [The word class has] been excised from the acceptable political vocabulary, except in the limited usage of right-wingers when they accuse liberals of inciting 'class warfare' - a charge that means it's okay for rich people to vote their economic interests but it's not all right to encourage poor people to do so. #Quote by Harry Shearer
Poor People quotes by Georg Buchner

Poor People quotes by Robert T. Kiyosaki

Poor People quotes by Henry Giroux
#178. To see poor people, their benefits being cut, to see pensions of Americans who have worked like my father, all their lives, and taken away, to see the rich just accumulating more and more wealth. I mean, it seems to me that there has to be a point where you have to say, 'No, this has to stop.' #Quote by Henry Giroux
Poor People quotes by Pope Francis
#179. Sometimes we are tempted to find excuses and complain, acting as if we could only be happy if a thousand conditions were met ... I can say that the most beautiful and natural expressions of joy which I have seen in my life were in poor people who had little to hold on to. #Quote by Pope Francis
Poor People quotes by T. Harv Eker

Poor People quotes by Ann Coulter
#181. Moreover, poor people are never opposed to big government because they're exempt from all the annoying things that government does. They're not worried about taxes: The government is not going to raise any taxes that they pay. They drive unlicensed cars, have no insurance, flee accidents, and couldn't pay a court judgment anyway. The government doesn't want to get in touch with the poor for any reason other than to give them things. #Quote by Ann Coulter
Poor People quotes by Alisa Harris
#182. We seek in one another the assurance that there is just one correct interpretation of the world, that everything is so simple that anybody can see it unless they're malicious or stupid or willfully ignorant; and we punish one another for proving with our differing conclusions that the truth is not that easy. We think we must suppress dissension to present the unified front we need to gain power over our enemies. But there are pro-life Democrats, pro-choice Christians, feminists who love their families, and conservatives who care about poor people. #Quote by Alisa Harris
Poor People quotes by Louis Ferdinand Celine

Poor People quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#185. [Conservatives] go to church, they do lots of things for free for each other. They hold potluck dinners ... They serve food to poor people. They share, they give, they give away for free. It's the very same people leading Wall Street firms who, on Sundays, show up and share. #Quote by Lawrence Lessig
Poor People quotes by Jimmy Carter
#186. Well, as you know, there are many things in life that are not fair, that wealthy people can afford and poor people cant. But I dont believe that the Federal Government should take action to try to make these opportunities exactly equal, particularly when there is a moral factor involved. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Poor People quotes by Muhammad Ali
#187. My conscience won't let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor hungry people in the mud for big powerful America. And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn't put no dogs on me, they didn't rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father ... Shoot them for what? How do I got to go shoot them, poor little black people, little babies, children, and women? How can I shoot them poor people? Just take me to jail. #Quote by Muhammad Ali

Poor People quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#191. While we were being bombed in Dresden sitting in a cellar with our arms over our heads in case the ceiling fell, one soldier said as though he were a duchess in a mansion on a cold and rainy night, 'I wonder what the poor people are doing tonight.' Nobody laughed, but we were still all glad he said it. At least we were still alive! He proved it. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Poor People quotes by Mother Teresa
#192. Do we know our poor people? Do we know the poor in our house, in our family? Perhaps they are not hungry for a piece of bread. Perhaps our children, husband, wife, are not hungry, or naked, or dispossessed, but are you sure there is no one there who feels unwanted, deprived of affection? #Quote by Mother Teresa
Poor People quotes by Albert Camus
#193. Remembrance of things past is just for the rich. For the poor it only marks the faint traces on the path to death. #Quote by Albert Camus
Poor People quotes by Muhammad Yunus
#194. We create institutions and policies on the basis of the way we make assumptions about us and others. We accept the fact that we will always have poor people around us. So we have had poor people around us. If we had believed that poverty is unacceptable to us, and that it should not belong to a civilized society, we would have created appropriate institutions and policies to create a poverty-free world. #Quote by Muhammad Yunus
Poor People quotes by Michelle Alexander
#195. The vastly different sentences afforded drunk drivers and drug offenders speaks volumes regarding who is viewed as disposable - someone to be purged from the body politic - and who is not. Drunk drivers are predominantly white and male. White men comprised 78 percent of the arrests for this offense in 1990 when new mandatory minimums governing drunk driving were being adopted.65 They are generally charged with misdemeanors and typically receive sentences involving fines, license suspension, and community service. Although drunk driving carries a far greater risk of violent death than the use or sale of illegal drugs, the societal response to drunk drivers has generally emphasized keeping the person functional and in society, while attempting to respond to the dangerous behavior through treatment and counseling.66 People charged with drug offenses, though, are disproportionately poor people of color. They are typically charged with felonies and sentenced to prison. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Poor People quotes by Jean Vanier
#196. People may come to our communities because they want to serve the poor; they will only stay once they have discovered that they themselves are poor. #Quote by Jean Vanier
Poor People quotes by T. Harv Eker
#197. Rich people take advice from people who are richer than they are. Poor people take advice from their friends, who are just as broke as they are. #Quote by T. Harv Eker
Poor People quotes by Les Brown
#198. If you want to be rich watch what rich people do everyday and do it. And watch what poor people do and don't do it. #Quote by Les Brown
Poor People quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#199. What is honour, my dear, when you have nothing to eat? #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Poor People quotes by Michael Lewis
#200. A thought crossed his mind: How do you make poor people feel wealthy when wages are stagnant? You give them cheap loans. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Poor People quotes by Charlie Munger
#201. I try to get rid of people who always confidently answer questions about which they don't have any real knowledge. #Quote by Charlie Munger
Poor People quotes by Louis C.K.
#202. People get successful and they start saying, 'Well of course I am! I was chosen! I'm special!' No, you're not. #Quote by Louis C.K.
Poor People quotes by Barbara Mandrell
#203. I have lots of favorite shows, but not reality! I don't like reality TV so much. I'm saddened by people who don't show respect to each other and to themselves. It's horrible. Unfortunately, that's demonstrated a lot on reality television. #Quote by Barbara Mandrell
Poor People quotes by Mary Badham
#204. If more people would try and reach up instead of going to the lowest common denominator, I think we'd be a lot better off. #Quote by Mary Badham
Poor People quotes by Jeff Bezos
#205. The smartest people are constantly revising their understanding, reconsidering a problem they thought they'd already solved. They're open to new points of view, new information, new ideas, contradictions, and challenges to their own way of thinking. #Quote by Jeff Bezos
Poor People quotes by Michael Lewis
#206. The deeper he got into his medical career, the more Burry felt constrained by his problems with other people in the flesh. He briefly tried to hide in pathology, where the people had the decency to be dead, but that didn't work. #Quote by Michael Lewis
Poor People quotes by Peggy Noonan
#207. We must try again to be alive to what the people of our country really long for in our national life: forgiveness and grace, maturity and wisdom.
... Our political leaders will know our priorities only if we tell them, again and again, and if those priorities begin to show up in the polls. #Quote by Peggy Noonan
Poor People quotes by Chuck D
#208. I let go usually by talking to many people in different areas, in different realms of life that make me look at what I'm dealing with as being small fries stuff, you know? #Quote by Chuck D
Poor People quotes by Savitri Devi
#209. I embraced Hinduism because it was the only religion in the world that is compatible with National Socialism. And the dream of my life is to integrate Hitlerism into the old Aryan Tradition, to show that it is really a resurgence of the original Tradition. It's not Indian, not European, but Indo-European. It comes from back to those days when the Aryans were one people near the North Pole. The Hyperborean Tradition. #Quote by Savitri Devi
Poor People quotes by Connor Franta
#210. YouTube is so quick and so instant, and you make a video, and you can upload it the same day, whereas with a book, you have to go through a lot of time and a lot of people and a lot of processes. So it was weird to sit down and work with other people on projects, because I'm so independent with YouTube. #Quote by Connor Franta
Poor People quotes by Muammar Gaddafi
#211. When Libya fought against the Italian occupation, all the Arabs supported the Libyan mujahideen.
We Arabs never occupied any country.
Well, we occupied Andalusia unjustly, and they drove us out, but since then, we Arabs have not occupied any country.
It is our countries that are occupied.
Palestine is occupied, Iraq is occupied, and as for the UAE islands...
It is not in the best interest of the Arabs for hostility to develop between them and Iran, Turkey, or any of these nations.
By no means is it in our interest to turn Iran against us.
If there really is a problem, we should decide here to refer this issue to the international court of Justice.
This is the proper venue for the resolution of such problems.
We should decide to refer the issue of the disputed UAE islands to the International Court of Justice, and we should accept whatever it rules.
One time you say this is occupied Arab land, and then you say...
This is not clear, and it causes confusion.
80% of the people of the Gulf are Iranians.
The ruling families are Arab, but the rest are Iranian. The entire people is Iranian.
This is a mess.
Iran cannot be avoided.
Iran is a Muslim neighbour, and it is not in our interes to become enemies.
What is the reason for the invasion and destruction of Iraq, and for killing of one million Iraqis?
Let our American friends answer this question:
Why Iraq? What is the reason?
Is B #Quote by Muammar Gaddafi
Poor People quotes by Ian Williams
#212. We're not ever interested in repeating ourselves or doing what people expect us to do, it's such a turn off. #Quote by Ian Williams
Poor People quotes by Carmine Gallo
#213. Guy Kawasaki, "The essence of evangelism is to passionately show people how you can make history together. Evangelism #Quote by Carmine Gallo
Poor People quotes by David Icke
#214. Dogmatic religion has been used to fantastic effect over thousands of years to fuel and exploit emotions like fear and guilt, and the feeling of being 'unworthy'. This has encouraged people to hand over their right to think and feel to a Bible and a priest because they have not had the confidence or self-belief to realize that they have a right, and an infinite gift, to make their own decisions #Quote by David Icke
Poor People quotes by Richard Carlson
#215. Ironically, when you surrender your need to hog the glory, the attention you used to need from other people is replaced by a quiet inner confidence that is derived from letting others have it. #Quote by Richard Carlson
Poor People quotes by Thomas Hardy
#216. Like all people who have known rough times, light-heartedness seemed to her too irrational and inconsequent to be indulged in except as a reckless dram now and then; for she had been too early habituated to anxious reasoning to drop the habit suddenly...Her triumph was tempered by circumspection, she had still that field-mouse fear of the coulter of destiny despite fair promise, which is common among the thoughtful who have suffered early from poverty and oppression. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Poor People quotes by Nicola Yoon
#217. I know the answer, but I can't make myself say it right away. I think about my dad's face earlier this afternoon. He's so determined that Charlie and I have a better life than he did. He'll do anything to guarantee it.

"Yes," I say. "He would." But not because he's evil. And not because he's a Stereotypical Korean Parent. But because he can't see past his own history to let us have ours.

A lot of people are like that. #Quote by Nicola Yoon
Poor People quotes by Ann Aguirre
#218. People grew lazy. They knew too many blessings, and so lost the ability to appreciate what they had #Quote by Ann Aguirre
Poor People quotes by John Legend
#219. As a politician, you have to deal with someone wanting you to fail every day. I think I prefer being in a situation where generally people are rooting for me, and if they aren't rooting for me, they aren't out there to see my downfall. I respect the people who have the stomach for it. #Quote by John Legend
Poor People quotes by T.H. White
#220. Something about doing a hateful and dangerous action for the sake of decency - for they knew that the fight was to be fought in blood and death without reward. They would get nothing but the unmarketable conscience of having done what they ought to do in spite of fear - something which wicked people have often debased by calling it glory with too much sentiment, but which is glory all the same. #Quote by T.H. White
Poor People quotes by Tim Grahl
#221. Marketing isn't sleazy car salesman tactics.
Marketing isn't tricking people into buying.
Marketing isn't unethical.
Marketing isn't intrusive self-promotion.
Marketing is two things: (1) creating lasting connections with people, through (2) a focus on being relentlessly helpful. #Quote by Tim Grahl
Poor People quotes by Neetesh Dixit
#222. These days people are so mean that they even try to get rid of their shadows sometimes. #Quote by Neetesh Dixit
Poor People quotes by Inio Asano
#223. People change, and as the years go by, so do our environments. I think it's alright for there not to be a "proper" way of living. But I do believe that instead of trying to be satisfied on just one answer and blocking out the rest, searching for more answers, despite the pain they may bring, is a much more honest way of living. #Quote by Inio Asano
Poor People quotes by Jodee Blanco
#224. People tend to consider beig vulnerable a bad thing. It's not. Vulnerability reminds us that we're human. It keeps us open to giving and receiving love. Without at least a little, we can become someone living n a prison of our own making, where the walls are so thick that no one can get in or out. #Quote by Jodee Blanco
Poor People quotes by Marsha Hinds
#225. There are those who always think the worst of people. That's because they are the worst of people. #Quote by Marsha Hinds
Poor People quotes by Max Brooks
#226. So many of his proposals looked crazy at first glance, but once you peeled back the first layer, you realized that underneath there existed a core of irrefutable logic. Take the new punishment laws, those really set me off. Putting people in stocks? Whipping them in town squares!?! What was this, Old Salem, the Taliban's Afghanistan? It sounded barbaric, un-American, until you really thought about the options. What were you going to do with thieves and looters, put them in prison? Who would that help? Who could afford to divert able-bodied citizens to feed, clothe, and guard other able-bodied citizens? More importantly, why remove the punished from society when they could serve as such a valuable deterrent? Yes, there was the fear of pain - the lash, the cane - but all of that paled when compared to public humiliation. People were terrified of having their crimes exposed. At a time when everyone was pulling together, helping each other out, working to protect and take care of one another, the worst thing you could do to someone was to march them up into the public square with a giant poster reading "I Stole My Neighbor's Firewood." Shame's a powerful weapon, but it depended on everyone else doing the right thing. No one is above the law, and seeing a senator given fifteen lashes for his involvement in war profiteering did more to curb crime than a cop on every street corner. #Quote by Max Brooks
Poor People quotes by Steven Erikson
#227. We are contrary creatures, us humans, but that isn't something we need be afraid of, or even much troubled by. And if you make a list of those people who worship consistency, you'll find they're one and all tyrants or would-be tyrants. Ruling over thousands, or over a husband or a wife, or some cowering child. Never fear contradiction, Cutter, it is the very heart of diversity. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Poor People quotes by Haruki Murakami
#228. I'll just come right out and say it, rich people have no imagination. They can't even scratch their own asses without a ruler and a flashlight. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Poor People quotes by Colin Mochrie
#229. Many people think it's in bad taste to advertise for an insane asylum ... but come on down. We're going crazy. #Quote by Colin Mochrie
Poor People quotes by Luke Goss
#230. When I look in the mirror, I never see a handsome chap or the person people think I am. #Quote by Luke Goss
Poor People quotes by Kerry Patterson
#231. People who are skilled at dialogue do their best to make it safe for everyone to add their meaning to the shared pool
even ideas that at first glance appear controversial, wrong, or at odds with their own beliefs. Now, obviously they don't agree with every idea; they simply do their best to ensure that all ideas find their way into the open. #Quote by Kerry Patterson
Poor People quotes by Marcel Proust
#232. If there is one thing more difficult than submitting oneself to a regime it is refraining from imposing it on other people. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Poor People quotes by Elliott Chaze
#233. If your life can hang from a chewing gum wrapper it can hang from anything in the book. It can hang from a bullet no bigger than a bean, or from a cigarette smoked in bed, or a bad breakfast that causes the doctor to sew the absorbent cotton inside you. From a slick tire tread or the hiccups or from kissing the wrong woman. Life is a rental proposition with no lease. For everybody, tall and short, muscles and fat, white and yellow, rich and poor. I know that now. And it is good to know at a time like this #Quote by Elliott Chaze
Poor People quotes by J. Oswald Sanders
#234. Leaders must draw the best out of people, and friendship does that far better than prolonged argument or mere logic. #Quote by J. Oswald Sanders
Poor People quotes by Julian Barnes
#235. It's easy, after all, not to be a writer. Most people aren't writers, and very little harm comes to them. #Quote by Julian Barnes
Poor People quotes by Paulo Coelho
#236. Some people say that, as summer approaches, we start to have weird ideas; we feel smaller because we spend more time out in the open air, and that makes us aware of how large the world is. The horizon seems farther away, beyond the clouds and the walls of our house. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Poor People quotes by George Michael
#237. I do think that Live Aid (1985) (TV) was a great thing, it focused people, I think it showed young kids the way in many respects and I think a lot of people are still inspired by what happened in the mid-Eighties. #Quote by George Michael
Poor People quotes by Tameka Cottle
#238. I'm always giving out advice. People always come to me for that. #Quote by Tameka Cottle
Poor People quotes by Will Smith
#239. The keys to life are running and reading. When you're running, there's a little person that talks to you and says, "Oh I'm tired. My lung's about to pop. I'm so hurt. There's no way I can possibly continue." You want to quit. If you learn how to defeat that person when you're running. You will how to not quit when things get hard in your life. For reading: there have been gazillions of people that have lived before all of us. There's no new problem you could have
with your parents, with school, with a bully. There's no new problem that someone hasn't already had and written about it in a book. #Quote by Will Smith
