“What do you mean?
Do you wish me a good morning,
or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not;
or that you feel good on this morning;
or that it is a morning to be good on?”
---J.R.R. Tolkien

"When I was young, poverty was so common
that we didn't know it had a name."

"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
