A rich man is nothing but a poor man with money. ( W. C. Fields)

Anyone who has ever struggled with poverty knows how extremely expensive it is to be poor.   (James A. Baldwin)

“You might be poor, your shoes might be broken, but your mind is a palace.” (Frank McCourt)

No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable. ( Adam Smith)

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.” (Mahatma Gandhi)

You can’t just lecture the poor that they shouldn’t riot or go to extremes. You have to make the means of legal redress available.  (Harold H. Greene)



We are a nation founded as a rebuke to tyranny. A nation of revolutionaries who refused sovereign reign from afar. Hear me – we’re a nation that says give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. A nation built on our differences, guided by the belief that we’re all created equal. ( (Michelle Obama)

“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty — it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.” (Mother Teresa)

Great leaders are willing to sacrifice the numbers to save the people. Poor leaders sacrifice the people to save the numbers.  (Simon Sinek)
