Poor - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

For those who are poor in happiness, each time is a first time; happiness never becomes a habit.

Marilyn Monroe

A rich man is nothing but a poor man with money.

William Claude Fields

The great moral questions of the present age are those about human rights, war, poverty, the vast disparities between rich and poor, the fact that somewhere in the third world a child dies every two and a half seconds because of starvation or remediable disease. The churches` obsessions over pre-marital sex and whether divorced couples can remarry in church appears contemptible in the light of this mountain of human suffering and need. By distracting attention from what really counts, and focusing it on the minor and anyway futile attempt to get people to conduct their personal lives only in ways the church permits, harm is done to the cause of good in the world.

A. C. Grayling

Loving Pablo (movie)

Jean-Paul Sartre

The more we associate experience with cash value, the more we think that money is what we need to live. And the more we associate money with life, the more we convince ourselves that we`re too poor to buy our freedom.

Rolf Potts

I would rather be poor in a cottage full of books than a king without the desire to read.
