I was taught that the human brain was the crowning glory of evolution so far, but I think it's a very poor scheme for survival.
Men feel that cruelty to the poor is a kind of cruelty to animals. They never feel that it is an injustice to equals; nay it is treachery to comrades.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Republicans have been accused of abandoning the poor. It's the other way around. They never vote for us.
Compromise makes a good umbrella, but a poor roof; it is temporary expedient, often wise in party politics, almost sure to be unwise in statesmanship.
James Russell Lowell
Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another.
Is it right to shoot the poor prostitute or a woman who is unfaithful to her husband, or a man who loves another man?
I believe in the law. I think we have a great system of justice. But I do think that system of justice has been corrupted by racism and classism. I think it's difficult for 'poor people' - poor white people, brown people - to be treated fairly before the law in the same way that upper-class people are.
Henry Louis Gates
The direct use of force is such a poor solution to any problem, it is generally employed only by small children and large nations.
I have several times made a poor choice by avoiding a necessary confrontation.
Why has the Democratic Party become so arrogantly detached from ordinary Americans? Though they claim to speak for the poor and dispossessed, Democrats have increasingly become the party of an upper-middle-class professional elite, top-heavy with journalists, academics and lawyers.

Women's Lib? Poor little things. They always look so unhappy. Have you noticed how bitter their faces are?
The universe lies before you on the floor, in the air, in the mysterious bodies of your dancers, in your mind. From this voyage no one returns poor or weary.

I was brought up by a single mom in a poor town in Arkansas and while some aspects of small-town life were really positive - like the fact that everyone there is really sweet and hospitable - there is also this close-minded mentality, and that naturally made me want to rebel.
The whole point of the kingdom of God is Jesus has come to bear witness to the true truth, which is nonviolent. When God wants to take charge of the world, he doesn't send in the tanks. He sends in the poor and the meek.

Thomas Babington Macaulay
Reproductive choice has to be straightened out. There will never be a woman of means without choice anymore. That just seems to me so obvious. The states that changed their abortion laws before Roe are not going to change back. So we have a policy that only affects poor women, and it can never be otherwise.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
