Poverty Quotes A-Z by Author Poverty Quotes A-Z by Author

The more I study the wealthy.. in an effort to learn how to help more people around the world become one of them.. I’m stunned by how many people are actually not rich.
David Bach - Rich - Learning - Poverty

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.
Eli Broad - Education - America - School - Knowledge - Rights - Economy - Skills - Class - Poor - Democracy - Society - Work

With a small fraction of the hundreds of billions of dollars spent on the Iraq war, the US and Australia could ensure every starving, sunken-eyed child on the planet could be well fed, have clean water and sanitation and a local school to go to.
Bob Brown - Money - Poverty - War


Terrorism isn't insanity. It grows out of social conditions that are well known: poverty, social oppression, dictatorship, and a void of meaning in the lives of ordinary people.
Deepak Chopra - Life
- Poverty - People - Problems

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.
Charles Darwin - Competition - Survival - Evolution - Weakness - Health - Poverty - Doctors - Society - Animal - Life - Ignorance

The bottom line is that if I did it, you can do it. I got rich without the benefit of a college education or a penny of capital but making many errors along the way. I went from being a pauper.. a hippie dropout on the dole, living in a crummy room without the proverbial pot to piss in, without even the money to pay the rent, without a clue as to what to do next.. to being rich..
Felix Dennis - Rich - Money
- Inspirational - Encouragement - Education - Mistakes - Poverty

My major problem with the world is a problem of scarcity in the midst of plenty ... of people starving while there are unused resources ... people having skills which are not being used.
Milton Friedman - Poverty - Greed


As our economy faces up to potential labour shortages due to our ageing population and as it moves to a new level of sophistication to compete with the rest of the world, we’re going to need every Australian on board pulling their weight, rejoining the workforce, gaining new skills.
Writing off individuals and communities suffering from poverty just creates a dead weight for our economy to drag along.
Julia Gillard - Jobs - Australia - Economy - Education - Skills - Poverty

The concept of social inclusion in essence means replacing a welfarist approach to helping the underprivileged with one of investing in them and their communities to bring them into the mainstream market economy. It’s a modern and fresh approach that views everyone as a potential wealth creator and invests in their human capital. My reason for adopting such an approach is simple: at a time when Australia needs more skilled people and has an ageing population, we simply can’t afford to have one in ten or more of our people out of the workforce due to unemployment, low skills or the effects of chronic poverty. S
ocial inclusion is an economic imperative.
Julia Gillard - Social - Australia - Economy - Wealth - Skills - Poverty - Help - Employment


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.
Takafumi Horie - Money - Poor - Motivational

In Africa, we were around thousands of people who have seen a lot of poverty, but they were fun at the end of the day.
Angelina Jolie - Challenges - People - Poverty - Fun - Africa

We have weapons of mass destruction we have to address here at home. Poverty is a weapon of mass destruction. Homelessness is a weapon of mass destruction. Unemployment is a weapon of mass destruction.
Dennis Kucinich - Unemployment - Social - Economic - Weapon - Poverty - America

Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself.. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.
Barack Obama - Focus - Ambition - Money - Poverty - Encouragement - Life - Inspirational

It's hard to do it because you have got to look people in the eye and tell them they're irresponsible and lazy. And who's going to want to do that? Because that's what poverty is, ladies and gentlemen. In this country (USA), you can succeed if you get educated and work hard. Period.
Bill O'Reilly - Poverty
- Responsible - Lazy - America - Success - Education

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?
Bill O'Reilly - Poverty

Azim Premji - Learning - Encouragement - Poverty

We need to make a game out of earning money. There is so much good we can do with money. Without it, we are bound and shackled and our choices become limited.
Bob Proctor - Earnings - Money - Good - Decisions - Poverty

Broke is normal. Why be normal?
Dave Ramsey - Poverty - Motivational

After losing everything, I went on a quest to find out how money really works, how I could get control of it, and how I could have confidence in handling it.
Dave Ramsey - Poverty - Problems - Money - Mistakes

I grew up in a working class family where there was no health insurance. I saw first hand the fracturing of the American dream and the bitterness that comes when there is no hope and a lot of despair. So I wanted to build the company, in a sense, that my father never got a chance to work for.
Howard Schultz - Employee - Family - America - Inspirational - Poverty - Companies - Hope


It is not the man who has little, but he who desires more, that is poor.
Seneca - Poverty - Greed - Desire


Lack of money is the root of all evil.
George Bernard Shaw - Money - Poverty

Russell Simmons - Change

Russell Simmons - Change

The conditions of suffering that exist today in our impoverished communities are not acceptable. The reflection of those conditions are less concerning to me. And I work everyday about changing the conditions.
Russell Simmons - Change - Poverty - Hard Work


Most of the poverty and misery in the world is due to bad government, lack of democracy, weak states, internal strife, and so on.

George Soros - Poverty

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.
Mr T - Values

Poverty is restriction and as such, it is the greatest injustice you can perpetrate upon yourself.

Oprah Winfrey - Responsibility - Motivational - Self Help - Rich - Poverty

Oprah Winfrey - Life - Knowledge - Poverty - Encouragement - Self Control


My experience working in the Grameen Bank has given me faith; an unshakable faith in the creativity of human beings. It leads me to believe that humans are not born to suffer the misery of hunger and poverty. They suffer now as they did in the past because we turn our heads away from this issue.
Muhammad Yunus - Experience - Banks - Poverty - Creativity - Belief - Potential

One day our grandchildren will go to museums to see what poverty was like.
Muhammad Yunus - Poverty - Optimistic


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.
Muhammad Yunus - Banks - Change - Poverty - Challenges - Rich
- Entrepreneurs - Opportunity

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.
Muhammad Yunus - Poverty - Belief

I have come to believe, deeply and firmly, that we can create a poverty free world if we want to. I came to this conclusion not as a product of a pious dream, but as a concrete result of experience gained in the work of the Grameen Bank.
Muhammad Yunus - Experience - Banks - Poverty - Belief - Dreams

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.
Muhammad Yunus - Poverty - Economy - Capitalism

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 them.
Muhammad Yunus - Poverty - Encouragement - Motivational - Opportunity - Potential
