Poorest quotes by Bjorn Lomborg
#1. The saddest fact of climate change - and the chief reason we should be concerned about finding a proper response - is that the countries it will hit hardest are already among the poorest and most long-suffering. #Quote by Bjorn Lomborg
Poorest quotes by Aravind Adiga
#2. He read me another poem, and another one - and he explained the true history of poetry, which is a kind of secret, a magic known only to wise men. Mr. Premier, I won't be saying anything new if I say that the history of the world is the history of a ten-thousand-year war of brains between the rich and the poor. Each side is eternally trying to hoodwink the other side: and it has been this way since the start of time. The poor win a few battles (the peeing in the potted plants, the kicking of the pet dogs, etc.) but of course the rich have won the war for ten thousand years. That's why, on day, some wise men, out of compassion for the poor, left them signs and symbols in poems, which appear to be about roses and pretty girls and things like that, but when understood correctly spill out secrets that allow the poorest man on earth to conclude the ten-thousand-year-old brain-war on terms favorable to himself. #Quote by Aravind Adiga
Poorest quotes by Jeremy Corbyn
#3. It is a ludicrous statistic plucked out of the air and used to justify a quite appalling attack on many of the poorest people in this country. #Quote by Jeremy Corbyn
Poorest quotes by Pope Francis
#4. To live charitably means not looking out for our own interests, but carrying the burdens of the weakest and poorest among us. #Quote by Pope Francis
Poorest quotes by Bee Wilson
#5. The gap in quality between the diet of the poorest and that of the richest is wide and widening. The poorest families in America may not look hungry in the way that Victorian orphans looked hungry, but they eat fewer dark green vegetables, fewer whole grains, and fewer nuts. #Quote by Bee Wilson
Poorest quotes by Jose Mujica
#6. The goatherds were the poorest people of Spain. Probably, they were the richest. #Quote by Jose Mujica
Poorest quotes by Jan Egeland
#7. Climate change disasters will displace more and more. Those who are most exposed are the poorest. #Quote by Jan Egeland
Poorest quotes by William Booth
#8. Good cookery is not an extravagance but an economy, and many a tasty dish is made by our Continental friends out of materials which would be discarded indignantly by the poorest tramp in Whitechapel. #Quote by William Booth
Poorest quotes by Maya Angelou
#9. People whose history and future were threatened each day by extinction considered that it was only by divine intervention that they were able to live at all. I find it interesting that the meanest life, the poorest existence, is attributed to God's will, but as human beings become more affluent, as their living standard and style begin to ascend the material scale, God descends the scale of responsibility at a commensurate speed. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Poorest quotes by Elizabeth Blair Lee
#10. Anger is the poorest of counselors, and revenge is suicide. #Quote by Elizabeth Blair Lee
Poorest quotes by Hillary Clinton
#11. We must realize that our destiny is strongly linked to the destiny of the poorest on this planet. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Poorest quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#12. However mean your life is, meet it and live it; do not shun it and call it hard names. It is not so bad as you are. It looks poorest when you are richest. The fault-finder will find faults even in paradise. Love your life, poor as it is. You may perhaps have some pleasant, thrilling, glorious hours, even in a poorhouse. The setting sun is reflected from the windows of the almshouse as brightly as from the rich man's abode; the snow melts before its door as early in the spring. I do not see but a quiet mind may live as contentedly there, and have as cheering thoughts, as in a palace. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Poorest quotes by Robert E. Slavin
#13. The principal reason that districts within states often differ markedly in per-pupil expenditures is that school funding is almost always tied to property taxes, which are in turn a direct function of local wealth. Having school funding depend on local wealth creates a situation in which poor districts must tax themselves far more heavily than wealthy ones, yet still may not be able to generate adequate income. For example, Baltimore City is one of the poorest jurisdictions in Maryland, and the Baltimore City Public Schools have the lowest per-pupil instructional expenses of any of Maryland's 24 districts. Yet Baltimore's property tax rate is twice that of the next highest jurisdiction.(FN2) Before the funding equity decision in New Jersey, the impoverished East Orange district had one of the highest tax rates in the state, but spent only $3,000 per pupil, one of the lowest per-pupil expenditures in the state.(FN3) A similar story could be told in almost any state in the U.S.(FN4) Funding formulas work systematically against children who happen to be located in high-poverty districts, but also reflect idiosyncratic local circumstances. For example, a factory closing can bankrupt a small school district. What sense does it make for children's education to suffer based on local accidents of geography or economics?
To my knowledge, the U.S. is the only nation to fund elementary and secondary education based on local wealth. Other developed countries either equalize funding #Quote by Robert E. Slavin
Poorest quotes by Melody Carlson
#14. You know the real reason we celebrate Christmas, don't you? I mean, beyond Santa Claus and jungle bells and Christmas trees?
You mean because Jesus was born? she asked.
Yes ... but did you ever think how Jesus was born? I mean, have you considered how it was such a humble birth, in a small barn ... how he was laid in a hay trough ... how the Son if almighty God humbled himself to be born in such lowly conditions? Have you thought about it like that? Jesus could have been born in a fine palace. After all, he was the Son of God. But for some reason God chose humble beginnings for His son. Do you ever wonder why? ... I think because God wanted to show that his love could reach to everyone, no matter who they were, from the poorest of poor to great kings. #Quote by Melody Carlson
Poorest quotes by Gregory A. Boyd
#15. All indications are that most Americans have become entrapped in wealth. Studies have shown that the wealthier people become, the lower percentage of their income they tend to give away. For example, in 2000 the gap between the average wealth of Americans and that of the poorest 25 percent of people on the planet was four times greater than what it had been in 1960. During this same period of time, the percentage of our country's GNP (Gross National Product) that went to providing assistance to the poorest 25 percent of people on the planet decreased to about one tenth of what it had been in 1960. While there are many incredibly generous Americans, as a nation we've clearly become entrapped by our wealth. #Quote by Gregory A. Boyd
Poorest quotes by Horace Walpole
#16. Without grace no book can live, and with it the poorest may have its life prolonged. #Quote by Horace Walpole
Poorest quotes by Will Rogers
#17. If your Income Taxes go to help out the less fortunate, there could be no legitimate kick against it in the world. This is becoming the richest, and the poorest Country in the world. Why? Why, on account of an unequal distribution of the money. #Quote by Will Rogers
Poorest quotes by Nick Clegg
#18. For far too long the world's poorest people have seen no benefit from the vast natural resources in their own backyards. It is time to end the injustice where ordinary people are silent witnesses, left to suffer without basic services, as the profits from their countries' assets are hidden and plundered by corrupt regimes. #Quote by Nick Clegg
Poorest quotes by Nicola Sturgeon
#19. The total impact of the Tory/Liberal tax, welfare and public spending changes has hit the poorest 10% in society disproportionately hard - and women have been affected even more badly than men. #Quote by Nicola Sturgeon
Poorest quotes by Alice Munro
#20. This is the way you look at the poorest details of the world resurfaced, after you've been driving for a long time
you feel their singleness and precise location and the forlorn coincidence of you being there to see them. #Quote by Alice Munro
Poorest quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#21. Better the poorest of real faith at work than the best ideal of it left in the region of speculation. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Poorest quotes by Michael Robotham
#22. Although reality can sometimes corrupt the fairy tale and alter our ambitions, some things remain unalterable. From the richest to the poorest, we start and end with family. #Quote by Michael Robotham
Poorest quotes by Paul Graham
#23. If I had a choice of living in a society where I was materially much better off than I am now, but was among the poorest, or in one where I was the richest, but much worse off than I am now, I'd take the first option. If I had children, it would arguably be immoral not to. It's absolute poverty you want to avoid, not relative poverty. #Quote by Paul Graham
Poorest quotes by Jonathan Kozol
#24. But for the children of the poorest people we're stripping the curriculum, removing the arts and music, and drilling the children into useful labor. We're not valuing a child for the time in which she actually is a child. #Quote by Jonathan Kozol
Poorest quotes by James A. Garfield
#25. To all our means of culture is added the powerful incentive to personal ambition, no post of honor is so high but the poorest may hope to reach it. #Quote by James A. Garfield
Poorest quotes by Andrew Lansley
#26. Especially some of the poorest in our society need to have the greatest support because health inequalities are too wide. #Quote by Andrew Lansley
Poorest quotes by William Shakespeare
#27. Our basest beggars are in the poorest thing superfluous: Allow not nature more than nature needs, man's life is cheap as beast's. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Poorest quotes by Manu Joseph
#28. The Untouchables, in modern times, had won the useless right of being touched by the high caste, but they remained the poorest in the city. Every #Quote by Manu Joseph
Poorest quotes by Jon Meacham
#29. He was the most contradictory of men. A champion of extending freedom and democracy to even the poorest of whites, Jackson was an unrepentant slaveholder. A sentimental man who rescued an Indian orphan on a battlefield to raise in his home, Jackson was responsible for the removal of Indian tribes from their ancestral lands. An enemy of Eastern financial elites and a relentless opponent of the Bank of the United States, which he believed to be a bastion of corruption, Jackson also promised to die, if necessary, to preserve the power and prestige of the central government. Like us and our America, Jackson and his America achieved great things while committing grievous sins. #Quote by Jon Meacham
Poorest quotes by David Attenborough
#30. There's a small worm called Loa Loa Filariasis. This parasite can survive in one environment exclusively- namely, underneath the skin and inside the eyes of human beings. Children and the elderly in tropical regions (usually the poorest) are the most widely affected. A painful, slow death is virtually certain. The worm can actually live in the host for 17 years before the host finally dies. #Quote by David Attenborough
Poorest quotes by Jack Weatherford
#31. The Mongols consumed a steady diet of meat, milk, yogurt, and other dairy products, and they fought men who lived on gruel made from various grains. The grain diet of the peasant warriors stunted their bones, rotted their teeth, and left them weak and prone to disease. In contrast, the poorest Mongol soldier ate mostly protein, thereby giving him strong teeth and bones. #Quote by Jack Weatherford
Poorest quotes by Queen Noor Of Jordan
#32. I've seen it around the world, in the poorest countries and in countries riven with conflict, It is women who are the key to breaking out of poverty, breaking out of stagnation. It's women who can contribute to achieving real security - not bombs and bullets and repressive governments. #Quote by Queen Noor Of Jordan
Poorest quotes by Maya Angelou
#33. I find it interesting that the meanest life, the poorest existence, is attributed to God's will, but as human beings become more affluent, as their living standard and style begin to ascend the material scale, God descends the scale of responsibility at commensurate speed. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Poorest quotes by Johann Kaspar Lavater
#34. Borrowed wit is the poorest wit. #Quote by Johann Kaspar Lavater
Poorest quotes by Noreena Hertz
#35. We live increasingly in a world of haves and have-nots, of gated communities next to ghettos, of extreme poverty and unbelievable riches. Some enjoy rights that are completely denied to others. Relative inequalities are exploding, and the world's poorest, despite all the advances of globalisation, may even be getting poorer. #Quote by Noreena Hertz
Poorest quotes by Narendra Modi
#36. Modern science is a catalyst agent to fulfil the needs of humankind. We must ensure that it reaches to poorest of the poor. #Quote by Narendra Modi
Poorest quotes by Tony Campolo
#37. But isn't it time for Christians to admit that we should reject bargains if they are gained by the exploitation of the poorest of the poor in developing countries? #Quote by Tony Campolo
Poorest quotes by Rajneesh
#38. There are many kinds of richness, and the man who is rich because of money is the lowest as far as the categories of richness are concerned. Let me say it in this way: the man of wealth is the poorest rich man. Looked at from the side of the poor, he is the richest poor man. Looked at from the side of a creative artist, of a dancer, of a musician, of a scientist, he is the poorest rich man. And as far as the world of ultimate awakening is concerned he cannot even be called rich. #Quote by Rajneesh
Poorest quotes by Paul Collier
#39. How do we give credible hope to the billion poorest people in the world? It requires compassion to get ourselves started, and enlightened self-interest to get serious ... If economic divergence continues, combined with global integration, it will build a nightmare for our children. #Quote by Paul Collier
Poorest quotes by Dorothy Nevill
#40. The poorest education that teaches self-control is better than the best that neglects it. #Quote by Dorothy Nevill
Poorest quotes by Robert J. Crane
#41. love and logic are the poorest of bedfellows. #Quote by Robert J. Crane
Poorest quotes by Pope Francis
#42. Embrace with tender affection the whole of humanity, especially the poorest, the weakest, the least important ... #Quote by Pope Francis
Poorest quotes by Paul Farmer
#43. The poorest parts of the world are by and large the places in which one can best view the worst of medicine and not because doctors in these countries have different ideas about what constitutes modern medicine. It's the system and its limitations that are to blame. #Quote by Paul Farmer
Poorest quotes by Jack Holland
#44. In 1968, Pope Paul VI responded instead with an encylical Humanae Vitae. The encyclical reaffirmed the Church's rejectionist stance: Contraceptives were evil and against God's law...In the West, many if not most Catholics ignored the ban. For them, however painful, the decision of whether to conceive or not was rarely a life-or-death issue. Unfortunately, for women in the poorest parts of the world, it often is. There, the right to choose whether or not to conceive was vitally linked to a woman's prospects for freeing herself and her family from poverty. It is in this context that the inherent and deeply rooted misogyny of the Church has taken its greatest toll on the lives of women. Pope John Paul II spent a considerable part of his pontificate propagandizing on behalf of a doctrine that tells ppor and illiterate women that to use a condom is the moral equivalent of murder and that each time they use contraceptives they render Christ's sacrifice on the cross 'in vain'. He said:'no personal or social circumstances have ever been able, or will be able, to rectify the moral wrong of the contraceptive act. #Quote by Jack Holland
Poorest quotes by Bill Gates
#45. If you want to improve the situation of the poorest two billion on the planet, having the price of energy go down substantially would be the best thing you could do for them. #Quote by Bill Gates
Poorest quotes by Derrick Bell
#46. Black people are the magical faces at the bottom of society's well. Even the poorest whites, those who must live their lives only a few levels above, gain their self-esteem by gazing down on us. Surely, they must know that their deliverance depends on letting down their ropes. Only by working together is escape possible. Over time, many reach out, but most simply watch, mesmerized into maintaining their unspoken commitment to keeping us where we are, at whatever cost to them or to us (Bell). #Quote by Derrick Bell
Poorest quotes by Elsa Maxwell
#47. Most rich people are the poorest people I know. #Quote by Elsa Maxwell
Poorest quotes by Carl Jung
#48. What if I should discover that the poorest of the beggars and the most impudent of offenders are all within me; and that I stand in need of the alms of my own kindness, that I, myself, am the enemy who must be loved
what then? #Quote by Carl Jung
Poorest quotes by Iain Duncan Smith
#49. A system that was originally designed to support the poorest in society is now trapping them in the very condition it was supposed to alleviate. #Quote by Iain Duncan Smith
Poorest quotes by Thomas Merton
#50. The poorest man in a religious community is not necessarily the one who has the fewest objects assigned to him for his use. Poverty is not merely a matter of not having "things." It is an attitude which leads us to renounce some of the advantages which come from the use of things. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Poorest quotes by Joseph E. Stiglitz
#51. As medical care has improved, life expectancy has increased - on average, in the United States, by some two years between 1990 and 2000. But for the poorest group of Americans there has been no progress, and for poor women life expectancy has actually been declining. #Quote by Joseph E. Stiglitz
Poorest quotes by Mark Twain
#52. As to the human race. There are many pretty and winning things about the human race. It is perhaps the poorest of all the inventions of all the gods but it has never suspected it once. There is nothing prettier than its naive and complacent appreciation of itself. It comes out frankly and proclaims without bashfulness or any sign of a blush that it is the noblest work of God. It has had a billion opportunities to know better, but all signs fail with this ass. I could say harsh things about it but I cannot bring myself to do it-it is like hitting a child. #Quote by Mark Twain
Poorest quotes by Gail Honeyman, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine
#53. Knowing no better, they are content to drop a bag of poorest quality blended tea into a mug, scald it with boiling water, and then dilute any remaining flavour by adding fridge-cold milk. Once again, for some reason, it is I who am considered strange. But if you're going to drink a cup of tea, why not take every care to maximize the pleasure? #Quote by Gail Honeyman, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine
Poorest quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#54. Whenever you are in doubt, or when the self becomes too much with you, apply the following test. Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to swaraj for the hungry and spiritually starving millions? #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Poorest quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#55. It is not to taste sweet things; but to do noble and true things, and vindicate himself under God's heaven as a God-made man, that the poorest son of Adam dimly longs. Show him the way of doing that, the dullest day-drudge kindles into a hero. They wrong man greatly who say he is to be seduced by ease. Difficulty, abnegation, martyrdom, death, are the allurements that act on the heart of man. Kindle the inner genial life of him, you have a flame that burns up all lower considerations. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Poorest quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#56. A real Christian in an odd number anyway. He feels supreme love for One whom he has never seen, talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see, expects to go to heaven on the virtue of Another, empties himself in order to be full, admits he is wrong so he can be declared right, goes down in order to get up, is strongest when he is weakest, richest when he is poorest, and happiest when he feels worst. He dies so he can live, forsakes in order to have, gives away so he can keep, sees the invisible, hears the inaudible, and knows that which passes knowledge. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Poorest quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#57. One who knew how to appropriate the true value of this world would be the poorest man in it. The poor rich man! all he has is whathe has bought. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Poorest quotes by Mother Teresa
#58. The poorest of the poor are those who feel that they are unloved. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Poorest quotes by William McDonough
#59. I am working right at both the levels- with the most wealthy clients in the world, but also the poorest. I spend half my time designing for people that have nothing. #Quote by William McDonough
Poorest quotes by Jonathan Kozol
#60. I write books to change the world. Perhaps I can only change one little piece of that world. But if I can empower teachers and good citizens to give these children, who are the poorest of the poor, the same opportunity we give our own kids, then I'll feel my life has been worth it. #Quote by Jonathan Kozol
Poorest quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#61. Take a book, the poorest one written, but read it with the passion that it is the only book you will read. Ultimately, you will read everything out of it, that is, as much as there was in yourself, and you could never get more out of reading, even if you read the best of books. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
Poorest quotes by Markus Zusak
#62. As she watched all of this, Liesel was certain that these were the poorest souls alive. That's what she wrote about them ... Some looked appealingly at those who had come to observe their humiliation, this prelude to their deaths. Others pleaded for someone, anyone to step forward and catch them in their arms.
No one did. #Quote by Markus Zusak
Poorest quotes by Russell Brand
#63. The six heirs to the Walmart fortune have more wealth than the poorest 30 per cent of Americans. #Quote by Russell Brand
Poorest quotes by Jamie Oliver
#64. The best food I've ever eaten in my life has come from the poorest communities. #Quote by Jamie Oliver
Poorest quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#65. A system of general instruction, which shall reach every description of our citizens, from the richest to the poorest, as it was the earliest, so will it be the latest, of all the public concerns in which I shall permit myself to take an interest. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Poorest quotes by Ryan Hackney
#66. The west and southwest of Ireland bore the brunt of the famine. Those areas, including Mayo, Sligo, Roscommon, Galway, Clare, and Cork, were the poorest regions of the island, and the most dependent on subsistence farming. Not coincidentally, these were also the areas that Catholic Irish had been sent to during the Protestant plantation. #Quote by Ryan Hackney
Poorest quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#67. In the poorest cottage are Books: is one Book, wherein for several thousands of years the spirit of man has found light, and nourishment, and an interpreting response to whatever is Deepest in him. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Poorest quotes by Bill Gates
#68. Most poor people live in the poorest countries. #Quote by Bill Gates
Poorest quotes by Prince Charles
#69. Forests ... are in fact the world's air-conditioning system-the very lungs of the planet-and help to store the largest body of freshwater on the planet ... essential to produce food for our planet's growing population. The rainforests of the world also provide the livelihoods of more than a billion of the poorest people on this Earth ... In simple terms, the rainforests, which encircle the world, are our very life-support system-and we are on the verge of switching it off. #Quote by Prince Charles
Poorest quotes by Tim Hetherington
#70. Going to Liberia really changed a lot for me. I didn't realize what was happening on the same planet. My understanding that in the world everything is interconnected really grew - to go to one of the poorest countries from one of the richest countries in the world. It was two worlds apart. #Quote by Tim Hetherington
Poorest quotes by Peter Singer
#71. There is no doubt that the world economy is in trouble. But if governments or individuals use this as an excuse to reduce assistance to the world's poorest people, they will only multiply the seriousness of the problem for the world as a whole. #Quote by Peter Singer
Poorest quotes by Richard Engel
#72. Shaped like Texas, but twice as big, Mali is one of the poorest countries in the world. It exports almost nothing - mostly just cotton, gold and livestock - and doesn't have enough money to import much of anything, either. #Quote by Richard Engel
Poorest quotes by Jane Addams
#73. Hospitality still survives among foreigners, although it is buried under false pride among the poorest Americans. #Quote by Jane Addams
Poorest quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#74. Struggle hard and then if you do not succeed, you are not to blame. Let the world praise or blame you. Let all the wealth of the earth come to your feet, or let you be made the poorest on earth. Let death come this moment or hundreds of years hence. Swerve not from the path you have taken. All good thoughts are immortal and go to make Buddhas and Christs. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Poorest quotes by Ali Liebegott
#75. I don't really believe in the myth of being poor but happy. At the poorest times in my life, I wasn't happy. I was just hungry. #Quote by Ali Liebegott
Poorest quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#76. I once saw a spindly man carrying a stone larger than his head upon his back. He stumbled beneath the weight, shirtless under the sun, wearing only a loincloth. He tottered down a busy thoroughfare. People made way for him. Not because they sympathized with him, but because they feared the momentum of his steps. You dare not impede one such as this. The monarch is like this man, stumbling along, the weight of a kingdom on his shoulders. Many give way before him, but so few are willing to step in and help carry the stone. They do not wish to attach themselves to the work, lest they condemn themselves to a life full of extra burdens. I left my carriage that day and took up the stone, lifting it for the man. I believe my guards were embarrassed. One can ignore a poor shirtless wretch doing such labor, but none ignore a king sharing the load. Perhaps we should switch places more often. If a king is seen to assume the burden of the poorest of men, perhaps there will be those who will help him with his own load, so invisible, yet so daunting. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Poorest quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#77. Thus dwelt together in love these simple Acadian farmers, - Dwelt in the love of God and of man. Alike were they free from Fear, that reigns with the tyrant, and envy, the vice of republics. Neither locks had they to their doors, nor bars to their windows; But their dwellings were open as day and the hearts of the owners; There the richest was poor, and the poorest lived in abundance. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Poorest quotes by Michelle Alexander
#78. The racial dimension of mass incarceration is its most striking feature. No other country in the world imprisons so many of its racial or ethnic minorities. The United States imprisons a larger percentage of its black population than South Africa did at the height of apartheid. In Washington, D.C., our nation's capitol, it is estimated that three out of four young black men (and nearly all those in the poorest neighborhoods) can expect to serve time in prison. Similar rates of incarceration can be found in black communities across America.

These stark racial disparities cannot be explained by rates of drug crime. Studies show that people of all colors use and sell illegal drugs at remarkably similar rates. If there are significant differences in the surveys to be found, they frequently suggest that whites, particularly white youth, are more likely to engage in drug crime than people of color. That is not what one would guess, however, when entering our nation's prisons and jails, which are over-flowing with black and brown drug offenders. In some states, black men have been admitted to prison on drug charges at rates twenty to fifty times greater than those of white men. And in major cities wracked by the drug war, as many as 80 percent of young African American men now have criminal records and are thus subject to legalized discrimination for the rest of their lives. These young men are part of a growing undercaste, permanently locked up and locked out of mainstre #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Poorest quotes by N. T. Wright
#79. We have a thousand machines for making war but none for making peace. We have computers and iPhone apps that can make millions out of a tiny change in exchange rates, but none that can rescue the poorest countries from their plight. We know how to make Internet pornography, but not how to repair marriages. The very objectivity or neutrality of scientific knowledge as commonly conceived has played into the hands of the gods we secretly worship. #Quote by N. T. Wright
Poorest quotes by Bee Wilson
#80. As things stand, our culture is far too critical of the individuals who eat junk foods and not critical enough about the corporations that profit from selling them. We spend a lot of time discussing unhealthy foods in terms of individual guilt and willpower and not enough looking at the morality of big food companies that have targeted some of the poorest consumers in the world with products that will make them sick, or the governments that allowed them to do so. #Quote by Bee Wilson
Poorest quotes by Daniel Marques
#81. The love of money leads many humans to humiliate themselves but this isn't as bad as their disdain towards the poorest. #Quote by Daniel Marques
Poorest quotes by Mother Teresa
#82. I realized that I had the call to take care of the sick and the dying, the hungry, the naked, the homeless - to be God's Love in action to the poorest of the poor. That was the beginning of the Missionaries of Charity. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Poorest quotes by John Flavel
#83. The soul of the poorest child is of equal dignity with the soul of Adam. #Quote by John Flavel
Poorest quotes by Akiva Ben Joseph
#84. Even the poorest in Israel are looked upon as freemen who have lost their possessions, for they are the sons of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. #Quote by Akiva Ben Joseph
Poorest quotes by Newt Gingrich
#85. If we are all endowed by our creator with the right to pursue happiness, that has to apply to the poorest neighborhoods in the poorest counties, and I am prepared to find something that works, that breaks us out of the cycles we have now to find a way for poor children to work and earn honest money. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Poorest quotes by Arundhati Roy
#86. If you think of the world as a global village, a fight between India and Pakistan is like a fight between the poorest people in the poorest quarters - the Adivasis and the Dalits. And in the meantime, the zamindars are laying the oil pipelines and selling both parties weapons. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Poorest quotes by Lakshmy Menon Chatterjee
#87. The poorest of women is the one without close girlfriends #Quote by Lakshmy Menon Chatterjee
Poorest quotes by Sylvia Waugh
#88. The inspector had interviewed boys before, boys from the poorest parts of town. He had the habit of not specifying "mam" or "dad" or even "parents." They were things he knew not every child possessed and so he was careful. #Quote by Sylvia Waugh
Poorest quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#89. The poorest man in his cottage may bid defiance to all the force of the Crown. It may be frail; its roof may shake; the wind may blow through it; the storms may enter; the rain may enter - but the King of England cannot enter; all his forces dare not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement! #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Poorest quotes by Guido Ceronetti
#90. Even the poorest and most squalid life is an Aeschylean drama, if you think about the tragedy of the bodily functions, the whispering of the secretions, the silence of the organs, the exertions of memory, the groping of the voice, the blood that courses, the mortal miasmas, the riots among microorganisms, the spermatic wars, the cellular eruptions, the pestilences of the nerves, the biochemical predestinations, and the fate that slowly but surely introduces you to the final infection, to the sores, the exploded boils, the snakes of madness, the furious bitches of Hunger. #Quote by Guido Ceronetti
Poorest quotes by Remy De Gourmont
#91. Each one, then, should love his life, even though it be not very attractive, for it is the only life. It is a boon that will never return and that each person should tend and enjoy with care; it is one's capital, large or small, and can not be treated as an investment like those whose dividends are payable through eternity. Life is an annuity; nothing is more certain than that. So that all efforts are to be respected that tend to ameliorate the tenure of this perishable possession which, at the end of every day, has already lost a little of its value. Eternity, the bait by which simple folk are still lured, is not situated beyond life, but in life itself, and is divided among all men, all creatures. Each of us holds but a small portion of it, but that share is so precious that it suffices to enrich the poorest. Let us then take the bitter and the sweet in confidence, and when the fall of the days seems to whirl about us, let us remember that dusk is also dawn. #Quote by Remy De Gourmont
Poorest quotes by Michael Gove
#92. The people I admire most are those doing outstanding things for the poorest children, such as Michael Wilshaw at Mossbourne academy, Dan Moynihan and all those at the Harris academies, and those at chains such as Ark and the Haberdashers, who are driving up standards in the poorest areas. #Quote by Michael Gove
Poorest quotes by Newt Gingrich
#93. It is tragic what we do in the poorest neighborhoods, entrapping children in child laws which are truly stupid ... These schools should get rid of unionized janitors, have one master janitor, pay local students to take care of the school. #Quote by Newt Gingrich
Poorest quotes by William MacAskill
#94. We're about one hundred times richer than the poorest billion people in the world, and we can do several hundred times more to help them than we can to help others in the rich countries we live in. #Quote by William MacAskill
Poorest quotes by Elizabeth Payson Prentiss
#95. God notices the most trivial act, accepts the poorest, most threadbare little service, listens to the coldest, feeblest petition, and gathers up with parental fondness all our fragmentary desires and attempts at good works. Oh, if we could only begin to conceive how He loves us, what different creatures we should be! #Quote by Elizabeth Payson Prentiss
Poorest quotes by Noam Chomsky
#96. The economic consequences of these policies have been the same just about everywhere, and exactly what one would expect: a massive increase in social and economic inequality, a marked increase in severe deprivation for the poorest nations and peoples of the world, a disastrous global environment, an unstable global economy and an unprecedented bonanza for the wealthy. #Quote by Noam Chomsky
Poorest quotes by Washington Irving
#97. Over no nation does the press hold a more absolute control than over the people of America, for the universal education of the poorest classes makes every individual a reader. #Quote by Washington Irving
Poorest quotes by David Korten
#98. It is interesting to note that the 200 richest people have more assets than the 2 billion poorest. #Quote by David Korten
Poorest quotes by Julia Child
#99. A cookbook is only as good as its poorest recipe. #Quote by Julia Child
Poorest quotes by Jason David Frank
#100. The poorest people in the world (particularly in low-lying areas) will suffer the most if we do not take action on climate change ... that calls for any tactic that might call attention to the problem. #Quote by Jason David Frank
Poorest quotes by Colin Powell
#101. When you help the poorest in the world, you start to move them up an economic and social ladder, and they're not going to be moving toward violence or terrorism of the kind that we worry about. #Quote by Colin Powell
Poorest quotes by John Brown
#102. I want you to understand that I respect the rights of the poorest and weakest of colored people, oppressed [to deny others their rights or liberty] by the slave system, just as much as I do those of the most wealthy and powerful. That is the idea that has moved me, and that alone. #Quote by John Brown
Poorest quotes by C. G. Jung
#103. The acceptance of oneself is the essence of the whole moral problem and the epitome of a whole outlook on life. That I feed the hungry, that I forgive an insult, that I love my enemy in the name of Christ
all these are undoubtedly great virtues. What I do unto the least of my brethren, that I do unto Christ. But what if I should discover that the least among them all, the poorest of all the beggars, the most impudent of all the offenders, the very enemy himself
that these are within me, and that I myself stand in need of the alms of my own kindness
that I myself am the enemy who must be loved
what then? As a rule, the Christian's attitude is then reversed; there is no longer any question of love or long-suffering; we say to the brother within us "Raca," and condemn and rage against ourselves. We hide it from the world; we refuse to admit ever having met this least among the lowly in ourselves. #Quote by C. G. Jung
Poorest quotes by Peter Maurin
#104. The world would be better off if people tried to become better, And people would become better if they stopped trying to be better off. For when everyone tries to become better off nobody is better off. But when everyone tries to become better everyone is better off. Everybody would be rich if nobody tried to become richer. And nobody would be poor if everybody tried to be the poorest And everybody would be what he ought to be if everybody tried to be what he wants the other fellow to be. #Quote by Peter Maurin
Poorest quotes by Hugh Evans
#105. Global poverty is the product of reversible policy failures overseen by politicians, past and present. The poorest of the poor don't vote in American or European elections. They don't make donations to political parties or hire lobbyists in D.C., London or Canberra. #Quote by Hugh Evans
Poorest quotes by Mother Teresa
#106. For me, life is the most beautiful gift of God to mankind, therefore people and nations who destroy life by abortion and euthanasia are the poorest. I do not say legal or illegal, but I think that no human hand should be raised to kill life, since life is God's life in us, even in an unborn child. #Quote by Mother Teresa
Poorest quotes by Eric Metaxas
#107. Today, Wilberforce University welcomes many of America's poorest and most underserved populations and transforms their educational dreams into realities. #Quote by Eric Metaxas
Poorest quotes by Arundhati Roy
#108. Imagine what would happen if the government were to take the wealth of 200,000 of India's richest people and redistribute it amongst 2 million of India's poorest? We would hear a lot about socialist appropriation and the death of democracy. Why should taking from the rich be called appropriation and taking from the poor be called development? #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Poorest quotes by Rajendra K. Pachauri
#109. 99% of the casualties linked to climate change occur in developing countries. Worst hit are the world's poorest groups. While climate change will increasingly affect wealthy countries, the brunt of the impact is being borne by the poor, whose plight simply receives less attention. #Quote by Rajendra K. Pachauri
Poorest quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#110. I would bend the knee before the poorest scavenger, the poorest untouchable in India for having participated in crushing him for centuries; I would even take the dust off his feet. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Poorest quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#111. Not only are the poorest people the most generous but they don't expect anything in return, least of all recognition from others by means of showing off or posting a humble brag like so many from average society do and you can identify these people through the abundance of photos they post, literally with their hands in the air, showing off what they've done for the "less fortunate." I guess they missed the part where God said to be humble and to do good works in private. #Quote by Donna Lynn Hope
Poorest quotes by Lance Morcan
#112. To Nine's way of thinking, the problems surrounding the exploitation of coltan in the DRC epitomized the problems the entire African continent faced in capitalizing on the huge untapped wealth that lay beneath its surface. Corruption, political unrest and outside interference from non-African countries ensured the continent that should be the world's wealthiest remained the poorest. #Quote by Lance Morcan
Poorest quotes by J.C. Ryle
#113. Humility and love are precisely the graces which the men of the world can understand, if they do not comprehend doctrines. They are the graces about which there is no mystery, and they are within reach of all classes ... The poorest Christian can every day find occasion for practicing love and humility. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Poorest quotes by Eugene Mirman
#114. I was in Vancouver, and I was in what I was told was the poorest neighborhood in North America - which I find very hard to believe because has anyone here ever been to Detroit? #Quote by Eugene Mirman
Poorest quotes by Cesar Chavez
#115. There is a great fear of our Union - a fear that I do not fully understand, but that I know is present ... What is it that causes some men to act so hastily and so cruelly? It cannot be that we are so powerful. Is it so much to ask that the poorest people of the land have a measure of justice? #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Poorest quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#116. This household happiness did not come all at once, but John and Meg had found the key to it, and each year of married life taught them how to use it, unlocking the treasuries of real home love and mutual helpfulness, which the poorest may possess, and the richest cannot buy. This is the sort of shelf on which young wives and mothers may consent to be laid, safe from the restless fret and fever of the world, finding loyal lovers in the little sons and daughters who cling to them, undaunted by sorrow, poverty, or age, walking side by side, through fair and stormy weather, with a faithful friend, who is, in the true sense of the good old Saxon word, the 'house-band,' and learning, as Meg learned, that a woman's happiest kingdom is home, her highest honor the art of ruling it not as a queen, but as a wise wife and mother. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Poorest quotes by Peter Julian Eymard
#117. God loved us, and to prove it to us became human in order to become our brother in the flesh. He became poor, the poorest of the poor, in order to be able to include us all as his brothers (and sisters). He became a little child in order to be like children, even born, children from the slums.
God has loved us and has given us all that he is and has. The Father gave the Son, the Son gave his very self, the Holy Spirit became our habitual sanctifier ... How grateful I should be to this kind Savior! #Quote by Peter Julian Eymard
Poorest quotes by James Wolfensohn
#118. What we need to do is increase the totality of money that is given to the poorest areas and then we can do more on prevention but we have crucial needs at the moment just to get people out of poverty and to get the eight hundred million people that go to bed at night hungry, give them some food and some hope. #Quote by James Wolfensohn
Poorest quotes by Paul Beatty
#119. Don't tell me Kinshasa, the poorest city in the poorest country in the world, a place where the average per capita income is one goat bell, two bootleg Michael Jackson cassette tapes, and three sips of potable water per year, thinks we're too poor to associate with. #Quote by Paul Beatty
Poorest quotes by Walter Williams
#120. Maybe your college professor taught that the legacy of colonialism explains Third World poverty. That's nonsense as well. Canada was a colony. So were Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. In fact, the richest country in the world, the United States, was once a colony. By contrast, Ethiopia, Liberia, Tibet, Sikkim, Nepal and Bhutan were never colonies, but they are home to the world's poorest people. #Quote by Walter Williams
Poorest quotes by Aiden Wilson Tozer
#121. Gratitude is an offering precious in the sight of God, and it is one that the poorest of us can make and be not poorer but richer for having made it. #Quote by Aiden Wilson Tozer
Poorest quotes by Silouan The Athonite
#122. Many rich and powerful men would pay dearly to see the Lord or His Most Pure Mother, but God does not appear in riches, but in the humble heart ... Every one of the poorest men can be humbles and come to know God. It need neither money nor reputation to come to know God, but only humility. #Quote by Silouan The Athonite
Poorest quotes by Danny DeVito
#123. My parents worked their tails off, but we weren't the poorest people in town. Some people I went to school with, you could tell they were dirt poor. #Quote by Danny DeVito

Poorest quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#126. The extermination of millions of unborn children, in the name of the fight against poverty, actually constitutes the destruction of the poorest of all human beings. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Poorest quotes by Billy Sothern
#127. ..I began speaking.. First, I took issue with the media's characterization of the post-Katrina New Orleans as resembling the third world as its poor citizens clamored for a way out. I suggested that my experience in New Orleans working with the city's poorest people in the years before the storm had reflected the reality of third-world conditions in New Orleans, and that Katrina had not turned New Orleans into a third-world city but had only revealed it to the world as such. I explained that my work, running Reprieve, a charity that brought lawyers and volunteers to the Deep South from abroad to work on death penalty issues, had made it clear to me that much of the world had perceived this third-world reality, even if it was unnoticed by our own citizens.

To try answer Ryan's question, I attempted to use my own experience to explain that for many people in New Orleans, and in poor communities across the country, the government was merely an antagonist, a terrible landlord, a jailer, and a prosecutor. As a lawyer assigned to indigent people under sentence of death and paid with tax dollars, I explained the difficulty of working with clients who stand to be executed and who are provided my services by the state, not because they deserve them, but because the Constitution requires that certain appeals to be filed before these people can be killed. The state is providing my clients with my assistance, maybe the first real assistance they have ever received from the s #Quote by Billy Sothern
Poorest quotes by Melinda Gates
#128. Contraceptives save the lives of mothers and newborns. Contraceptives also reduce abortion. As a result of contraceptive use, there were 26 million fewer unsafe abortions in the world's poorest countries in just one year, according to the most recent data. #Quote by Melinda Gates
Poorest quotes by Carmen Amato
#129. Emilia typed in her password and checked her inbox. A review by the Secretariat de Gobernación of drug cartel activities across Mexico. A report of a robbery in Acapulco's poorest barrio neighborhood that would probably never be investigated. Notice of a reward for a child kidnapped in Ixtapa who was almost certainly dead by now.
Her phone rang. It was the desk sergeant saying that a Señor Rooker wished to see her. Emilia avoided Rico's eye as she said, yes, the sergeant could let el señor pass into the detectives' area.
A minute later Rucker was standing by her desk, sweat beaded on his forehead. The starched collar of his shirt was damp.
"There's a head," he said breathlessly. "Someone's head in a bucket on the hood of my car. #Quote by Carmen Amato
Poorest quotes by Isabel Allende
#130. Young women don't want to be called feminists because it's not sexy and ah they think that their mothers and grandmothers have achieved everything they want. They don't know how poor women live, how women in rural places live, how 80 percent of women in the world are the poorest of the poor, how still there are 27 million slaves, and most of them women and girls. #Quote by Isabel Allende
Poorest quotes by Andy Warhol
#131. What's great about this country is America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. #Quote by Andy Warhol
Poorest quotes by Richard Corliss
#132. Soviet moviegoers gazed enviously on the jalopy that took the Joads from Oklahoma to California. The message Russians took from 'The Grapes of Wrath': even the poorest capitalists have cars! #Quote by Richard Corliss
Poorest quotes by Brian Herbert
#133. Even the poorest House can be rich in loyalty. Allegiance that must be purchased by bribes or wages is hollow and flawed, and could break at the worst possible moment. Allegiance that comes from the heart, though, is stronger than adamantium and more valuable than purest melange. #Quote by Brian Herbert
Poorest quotes by Ann Coulter
#134. The mass migration of the poorest of the poor to America is bad for the whole country, but it's fantastic for Democrats. Ask yourself: Which party benefits from illiterate non-English speakers who have absolutely no idea what they're voting for, but can be instructed to learn certain symbols? #Quote by Ann Coulter
Poorest quotes by David Cameron
#135. If we are going to try to get across to the poorest people in the world that we care about their plight and we want them to join one world with the rest of us, we have got to make promises and keep promises. #Quote by David Cameron
Poorest quotes by Jose Mujica

Poorest quotes by Tom Burgis
#138. The Congolese are consistently rated as the planet's poorest people, significantly worse off than other destitute Africans. In the decade from 2000, the Congolese were the only nationality whose gross domestic product per capita, a rough measure of average incomes, was less than a dollar a day. #Quote by Tom Burgis
Poorest quotes by Eloisa James
#139. Parisians gasped when Theo paired brown with black- and then found themselves even more shocked when she wore a black corded silk evening gown sewn with amethysts, and later, a purple riding habit with sour-green gloves.
They gasped... and rushed to imitate.
What the French loved most were Theo's epigrammatic rules. They were collected like precious jewels, and even the poorest shopgirls ripped the lace from their Sunday frocks when she was reported to have remarked, "Wear lace to be baptized. Period. #Quote by Eloisa James
Poorest quotes by Abu Bakar Bashir

Poorest quotes by Roberto Bolano
#141. Even on the poorest streets people could be heard laughing. Some of these streets were completely dark, like black holes, and the laughter that came from who knows where was the only sign, the only beacon that kept residents and strangers from getting lost. #Quote by Roberto Bolano
Poorest quotes by Judy Ann Davis

Poorest quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#144. We have at our fingertips information that 500 years ago would have made the poorest man a prince. #Quote by Joseph B. Wirthlin
Poorest quotes by Jose Mujica
#145. We applied a very simple principle: Recognize the facts. Abortion is old as the world. Gay marriage, please - it's older than the world. We had Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great, please. To say it's modern, come on, it's older than we are. It's an objective reality that it exists. For us, not legalizing it would be to torture people needlessly. #Quote by Jose Mujica
Poorest quotes by Adam Hochschild
#146. For the better part of two centuries, outsiders have been offering explanations that range from racist to learned-sounding - the supposed inferiority of blacks, the heritage of slavery, overpopulation - for why Haiti remains the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. #Quote by Adam Hochschild
Poorest quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#147. Nowhere in the world is presented a government of so much liberty and equality. To the humblest and poorest amongst us are held out the highest privileges and positions. The present moment finds me at the White House, yet there is as good a chance for your children as there was for my father's. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Poorest quotes by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
#148. The deepest work is usually the darkest. A brave woman, a wisening woman, will developing the poorest psychic land, for if she builds only on the best land of her psyche, she will have for a view the least of what she is. So do not be afraid of the worst. It only guarantees increase of soul power through fresh insights and opportunities for re-visioning one's life and self anew. #Quote by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Poorest quotes by Narendra Modi

Poorest quotes by Jonathan Kozol

Poorest quotes by Noreena Hertz
#152. Debt vultures are really the scum at the bottom of the pond. These are guys who buy up the debts of the world's poorest countries on the secondary market. You can go buy debts of a country like Peru, for example, at a real discount. Why? Because people think that the debts won't be repaid. #Quote by Noreena Hertz
Poorest quotes by Dan O'Neill

Poorest quotes by Paul Farmer

Poorest quotes by Friedrich A. Hayek

Poorest quotes by Patrick Sharkey
#166. Over the past two generations, 48 percent of all African American families have lived in the poorest quarter of neighborhoods in each generation. The most common experience for black families since the 1970s, by a wide margin, has been to live in the poorest American neighborhoods over consecutive generations. Only 7 percent of white families have experienced similar poverty in their neighborhood environments for consecutive generations. By contrast, persistent neighborhood advantage is virtually nonexistent for black families. One out of every one hundred black families in the United States has lived in affluent neighborhoods over the past two generations, compared to roughly one out of five white families. #Quote by Patrick Sharkey
Poorest quotes by Gene Sperling
#167. One of the things we have to remember about the poorest countries in the world is that parents, extremely poor parents, are making the choice of whether to send their girls to school. And they are struggling with lack of water, lack of firewood, and lack of care for their youngest children. And those burdens fall on the girls. #Quote by Gene Sperling
Poorest quotes by Jonathan Kozol
#168. The first ten, twelve or fifteen years of life are excavated of inherent moral worth in order to accommodate a regimen of basic training for the adult years that many of the poorest children may not even live to know. #Quote by Jonathan Kozol

Poorest quotes by Jimmy Carter
#171. My life since the White House has been much more all-encompassing, much more enjoyable. The main thing that I've acquired has been access to the poorest and most destitute, forgotten, and suffering people on Earth. It's not possible for a President to actually know them. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Poorest quotes by Michelle Alexander
#172. The United States imprisons a larger percentage of its black population than South Africa did at the height of apartheid. In Washington, D.C., our nation's capitol, it is estimated that three out of four young black men (and nearly all those in the poorest neighborhoods) can expect to serve time in prison. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Poorest quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#173. How do you know if the next act you are about to do is the right one or the wrong one? Consider the face of the poorest and most vulnerable human being that you have ever chanced upon, and ask yourself if the act that you contemplate will be of benefit to that person; and if it will be, it's the right thing to do, and if not, rethink it. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi

Poorest quotes by Hannah Arendt
#179. The breakdown of the European party system occurred in a spectacular way with Hitler's rise to power. It is now often conveniently forgotten that at the moment of the outbreak of the second World War, the majority of European countries has already adopted some form of dictatorship and discarded the party system, and that this revolutionary change in government has been effected in most countries without revolutionary upheaval. Revolutionary action more often than not was a theatrical concession to the desires of violently discontented masses rather than an actual battle for power. After all, it did not make much difference if a few thousand almost unarmed people staged a march on Rome and took over the government of Italy, or whether in Poland (in 1934) a so-called "partyless bloc," with a program of support for a semifascist government and a membership drawn from the nobility and the poorest peasantry, workers and businessmen, Catholics and orthodox Jews, legally won two-thirds of the seats in Parliament. #Quote by Hannah Arendt
Poorest quotes by Boris Johnson
#180. I think I'm basically a liberal Conservative - I believe in low tax, spirit of free enterprise, and in making sure that we as politicians create the framework for business to produce the dosh that we're going to need to pay for the poorest. And the longer I live, the more I think that we all have a duty to each other. #Quote by Boris Johnson

Poorest quotes by Pope Francis
#182. In your school you take part in various activities that habituate you not to shut yourselves in on yourselves or in your small world, but to be open to others, especially to the poorest and neediest, to work to improve the world in which we live. Be men and women with others and for others, real champions in the service of others. To be magnanimous with interior liberty and a spirit of service, spiritual formation is necessary. Dear children, dear youths, love Jesus Christ ever more! #Quote by Pope Francis
Poorest quotes by Matthew Desmond

Poorest quotes by George MacDonald
#186. There is no heaven with a little hell in it - no plan to retain this or that of the devil in our hearts or our pockets. Out Satan must go, every hair and feather! ... There is no clothing in a robe of imputed righteousness, the poorest of legal cobwebs spun by spiritual spiders. ... Christ is our righteousness, not that we should escape punishment, still less escape being righteous, but as the live potent Creator of righteousness in us, so that we, with our wills receiving His spirit, shall like Him resist unto blood, striving against sin; shall know in ourselves, as He knows, what a lovely thing is righteousness, what a mean, ugly, unnatural thing is unrighteousness. He is our righteousness, and that righteousness is no fiction, no pretense, no imputation. ... Any system which tends to persuade men that there is any salvation but that of becoming righteous even as Jesus is righteous; that a man can be made good, as a good dog is good, without his own willed share in the making; that a man is saved by having his sins hidden under a robe of imputed righteousness - that system, so far this tendency, is of the devil and not of God. Thank God, not even error shall injure the true of heart. They grow in truth, and as love casts out fear, so truth casts out falsehood. #Quote by George MacDonald
Poorest quotes by Emma Goldman
#187. Anarchism aims to strip labor of its deadening, dulling aspect, of its gloom and compulsion. It aims to make work an instrument of joy, of strength, of color, of real harmony, so that the poorest sort of a man should find in work both recreation and hope. #Quote by Emma Goldman

Poorest quotes by William Law
#191. To lessen your fear and regard to the opinion of the world, think how soon the world will disregard you, and have no more thought or concern about you, than about the poorest animal that died in a ditch ...

Poorest quotes by Wilkie Collins
#196. Our capacity of appreciating the beauties of the earth we live on is, in truth, one of the civilised accomplishments which we all learn, as an Art; and, more, that very capacity is rarely practised by any of us except when our minds are most indolent and most unoccupied. How much share have the attractions of Nature ever had in the pleasurable or painful interests and emotions of ourselves or our friends? What space do they ever occupy in the thousand little narratives of personal experience which pass every day by word of mouth from one of us to the other? All that our minds can compass, all that our hearts can learn, can be accomplished with equal certainty, equal profit, and equal satisfaction to ourselves, in the poorest as in the richest prospect that the face of the earth can show. #Quote by Wilkie Collins
Poorest quotes by Donna Karan
#197. When I came to Delhi first and said, "This is not India. And then I was taken to Varanasi and there I loved, loved the culture. It was a beautiful journey. The way the people dressed - even the poorest people, and the fabrics! With vegetable dyes, and I was fascinated by the color.But in the end I loved the men - all in white - so many shades of white. And I said, "What am I going to do? A color collection or a white collection?" I finally did a neutral white collection. #Quote by Donna Karan

Poorest quotes by Madeleine M. Kunin
#199. We continue to blame the poor for their own condition. They are lazy. We do not want to know that the poorest of the poor are toddlers under three years of age. #Quote by Madeleine M. Kunin
Poorest quotes by Martin McGuinness
#200. Let me put it like this: I am not prepared to officiate over on behalf of the British government what I think is a disastrous strategy which will impact on some of the most vulnerable and poorest people within our society. #Quote by Martin McGuinness
