Poor Quotes A-Z by Famous People
Public education is the key civil rights
issue of the 21st century. Our nation's
knowledge-based economy demands that we
provide young people from all backgrounds
and circumstances with the education and
skills necessary to become knowledge workers.
If we don't, we run the risk of creating
an even larger gap between the middle class
and the poor. This gap threatens our democracy,
our society and the economic future of America.
Broad - Education
With savages, the weak in body or mind are
soon eliminated; and those that survive
commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health.
We civilized men, on the other hand, do
our utmost to check the process of elimination;
we build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed,
and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and
our medical men exert their utmost skill
to save the life of every one to the last
moment. There is reason to believe that
vaccination has preserved thousands, who
from a weak constitution would formerly
have succumbed to smallpox. Thus the weak
members of civilized societies propagate
their kind. No one who has attended to the
breeding of domestic animals will doubt
that this must be highly injurious to the
race of man. It is surprising how soon a
want of care, or care wrongly directed,
leads to the degeneration of a domestic
race; but excepting in the case of man himself,
hardly any one is so ignorant as to allow
his worst animals to breed.
Darwin - Competition
Money is human kind's greatest invention.
Money doesn't discriminate. Money doesn't
care whether a person is poor, whether a
person comes from a good family, or what
his skin color is. Anybody can make money.
Horie - Money
It's easy to have principles when you're
rich. The important thing is to have principles
when you're poor.
Kroc - Rich
The tax code is not the only area where
the administration is helping the rich get
richer and the poor get poorer. It has spent
$155 billion for an unnecessary war driven
Kucinich - Republican
I'm calling for all responsible Americans
to fight back and punish Pepsi for using
a man who degrades women, who encourages
substance abuse, and does all the things
that hurt particularly the poor in our society.
I'm calling for all Americans to say, hey
Pepsi, I'm not drinking your stuff. You
want to hang around with Ludacris (a rap
singer that Pepsi planned to use for advertising),
you do that, I'm not hanging around with
you. Am I wrong to do that?
O'Reilly - Poverty
It's a mistake to think that poor people
get the benefit from the welfare system.
It's a total fraud. Most welfare go to the
rich of this country: the military-industrial
complex, the bankers, the foreign dictators,
it's totally out of control.
Paul - Mistake
What's happening is, there's transfer of
wealth from the poor and the middle class
to the wealthy. This comes about because
of the monetary system that we have. When
inflate a currency or destroy a currency,
the middle class gets wiped out. So the
people who get to use the money first which
is created by the Federal Reserve system
benefit. So the money gravitates to the
banks and to Wall Street. That's why you
have more billionaires than ever before.
Paul - Federal
Reserve - Economy
Class - Poor
It is not the man who has little, but he
who desires more, that is poor.
I wanted to win to feed the hungry people
of my community. I didn't want to win to
buy a diamond.. I didn't have no diamonds
then. I didn't want to win to buy a car,
I didn't want to win to bring a couple of
chicks downtown to a hotel. I wanted to
win to feed the poor people of the community.
T - Values
Your incredible brain can take you from
rags to riches, from loneliness to popularity,
and from depression to happiness and joy..
if you use it properly.
Tracy - Rich
I did something that challenged the banking
world. Conventional banks look for the rich;
we look for the absolutely poor. All people
are entrepreneurs, but many don't have the
opportunity to find that out.
Yunus - Banks
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.
Yunus - Poverty
Poverty has been created by the economic
and social system that we have designed
for the world. It is the institutions that
we have built and feel so proud of, which
created poverty them.
Yunus - Poverty
The poor themselves can create a poverty-free
world.. all we have to do is to free them
from the chains that we have put around
Yunus - Poverty
Rich people have small TVs and big libraries,
and poor people have small libraries and
