“We are not rich by what we possess but by what we can do without.”
~ Immanuel Kant

“If you’re in trouble, or hurt or need – go to the poor people. They’re the only ones that’ll help – the only ones.” ~ John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath

“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” ~ Nelson Mandela

“Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”
~ Buddha
