“Almsgiving tends to perpetuate poverty; aid does away with it once and for all.”
“Charity separates the rich from the poor; aid raises the needy and sets him on the same level with the rich.”
“Without fanaticism one cannot accomplish anything.”
“I was very sad for many days when I discovered that in the world there were poor people and rich people; and the strange thing is that the existence of the poor did not cause me as much pain as the knowledge that at the same time there were people who were rich.”
“Almsgiving leaves a man just where he was before. Aid restores him to society as an individual worthy of all respect and not as a man with a grievance.”
