Quotes about Poverty

Frederick Douglass


“The mother of revolution and crime is poverty”
Aristotle

“If you're in trouble, or hurt or need - go to the poor people. They're the only ones that'll help - the only ones.”

― John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath: The Play

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.”



― Franklin D. Roosevelt
