All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today. Pope Paul VI

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Melody Beattie

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. Martin Luther King, Jr.

"Part of being a grownup is always to have the balls to believe. Cynicism is like an armour – it will, initially, protect you. But you cannot grow in armour, you cannot dance in armour. Cynicism is, in the end, an act of weakness. We must always have the cojones to be optimistic. To trust people. To forgive them their mistakes, if we feel that they are trying to be better people; that they are trying to learn."

Caitlin Moran

"Poverty is not simply an occasion for charity but a degrading force
that denigrates human dignity and ought to be opposed and rejected."

Second, poverty is not a result of fate or laziness, but is due to structural injustices that privilege some while
marginalizing others.
"Poverty is not inevitable; collectively the poor can organize and facilitate social change."

Third, poverty is a complex reality and is not limited to its economic dimension.
"To be poor is to be insignificant. Poverty means an early and unjust death."

Gustavo Gutierrez.

"Poverty is like punishment for a crime you didn't commit." "In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of." "An imbalance between rich and poor is the oldest and most fatal ailment of all republics."

Then the question arises. Is it time for the organisers of self-interests, ie the greedy
and if so it is then time for the Madame Guillotine that is cackle slaver cackle re
sizes their hight :wqoohoo :heeheehee :heeheehee
