7. "Success"If you want a thing bad enoughTo go out and fight for it,Work day and night for it,Give up your time and your peace and your sleep for itIf only desire of itMakes you quite mad enoughNever to tire of it,Makes you hold all other things tawdry and cheap for itIf life seems all empty and useless without itAnd all that you scheme and you dream is about it,If gladly you'll sweat for it,Fret for it,Plan for it,Lose all your terror of God or man for it,If you'll simply go after that thing that you want.With all your capacity,Strength and sagacity,Faith, hope and confidence, stern pertinacity,If neither cold poverty, famished and gaunt,Nor sickness nor painOf body or brainCan turn you away from the thing that you want,If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,You'll get it!"

We are so poor that even our poverty is not our own: It belongs to the mysterium tremendum of a loving God."

11. "My father is deceast, come Gaveston,'And share the kingdom with thy deerest friend.'Ah words that make me surfet with delight:What greater blisse can hap to Gaveston,Then live and be the favorit of a king?Sweete prince I come, these these thy amorous lines,Might have enforst me to have swum from France,And like Leander gaspt upon the sande,So thou wouldst smile and take me in thy armes.The sight of London to my exiled eyes,Is as Elizium to a new come soule.Not that I love the citie or the men,But that it harbors him I hold so deare,The king, upon whose bosome let me die,And with the world be still at enmitie:What neede the artick people love star-light,To whom the sunne shines both by day and night.Farewell base stooping to the lordly peeres,My knee shall bowe to none but to the king.As for the multitude that are but sparkes,Rakt up in embers of their povertie,Tanti: Ile fawne first on the winde,That glaunceth at my lips and flieth away: ...."
Author: Christopher Marlowe

Pažnju usmjerite na razlicite dijelove tijela, najprijenakratko: dlanovi, stopala, ruke, noge, trbuh, prsa, glava i tako dalje.Osjetite životnu energiju unutar tih dijelova što jace možete. Kodsvakog dijela tijela ostanite petnaestak sekundi. Tada dopustite pažnjida nekoliko puta prode kroz tijelo kao val, od stopala do glave i natrag.Za to vam je potrebna otprilike jedna minuta. Nakon toga upotpunosti osjetite unutarnje tijelo kao jedinstveno polje energije.Taj osjecaj zadržite nekoliko minuta. Tijekom toga razdoblja buditesnažno prisutni u svakoj stanici svoga tijela. Ne brinite ako vam umpovremeno uspije odvuci pažnju iz tijela te ako se izgubite u nekojmisli. Cim"

16. "Za sobom imam povijest prebrzog donošenja odluka po pitanju muškaraca. Uvijek sam se zaljubljivala brzo i bez procjenjivanja rizika. Sklona sam ne samo vidjeti najbolje u svima, vec i pretpostaviti da su svi emocionalno sposobni dosegnuti svoje najviše potencijale. Nebrojeno mnogo puta zaljubila sam se u najviši potencijal nekog muškarca, umjesto u njega samoga, te dugo održavala tu vezu cekajuci da on ostvari vlastitu velicinu. U mnogim sam vezama bila žrtva vlastitog optimizma."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert

Author: Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Author: Ginny Brown Waite
21. "Many people have got caught up in the belief known as the "Law of Attraction." They believe that by their thoughts, affirmations, and other "attraction" exercises they will become wealthy. However, the Tanakh wisely says, "In all work there is profit, but mere talk produces only poverty." (CJB, Proverbs 14:23). Only through work it is possible to produce results that create wealth and simply talking about wealth will not produce any results. The idea that wealth can come through thoughts or affirmations is a fantasy. "A hard worker has plenty of food, but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty" (CJB, Proverbs 28:19)."
Author: H.W. Charles

23. "U životu ne postoji nikakva dužnostosim dužnosti: biti srecan.Samo smo zato na svetu,a sa svim dužnostima,svim moralomi svim zapovedimaretko cinimo jedno drugoga srecnim,jer i sebe time ne cinimo srecnima.Ako covek može biti dobar,može to samo ondakada je srecan,kada u sebi ima sklada,dakle kada voli.To je bilo ucenje,jedino ucenje na svetu.To je rekao Isus,To je rekao Buda,To je rekao Hegel.Za svakoga je na ovome svetujedino važnonjegovo vlastito najunutarnjije,njegova duša,njegova sposobnost da voli.Ako je ona u redu,onda je svejednojede li se proso ili kolaci,nose li se dragulji ili rite;onda svet zvuci zajedno s dušom,onda je dobro."
Author: Hermann Hesse

Author: Irwin Redlener
25. "Ambicije i tu truju ljudima zivote i medjusobne odnose, mrznje tinjaju godinama,velike ljubavi nicu neocekivano i gase se sporo i zalosno.Ukratko, tu ima pomalo od svega sto inace medju ljudima biva i sto ih povezuje ili deli, podize ili satire."
Author: Ivo Andric

27. "Now the trumpet summons us again—not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are—but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation"—a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.Inaugural Adress, January 20, 1961"
Author: John F. Kennedy
28. "Several premises shaped the Marshall Plan: that the gravest threat to western interests in Europe was not the prospect of Soviet military intervention, but rather the risk that hunger, poverty, and despair might cause Europeans to vote their own communists into office, who would then obediently serve Moscow's wishes; that American economic assistance would produce immediate psychological benefits and later material ones that would reverse this trend; that the Soviet Union would not itself accept such aid or allow its satellites to, thereby straining its relationship with them; and that the United States could then seize both the geopolitical and the moral initiative in the emerging Cold War."
Author: John Lewis Gaddis
29. "Trebaju nam mnogo veci džepovi,razmišljao sam ležeci u krevetu i brojeci tih sedam minuta potrebnih normalnom covjeku da utone u san.Trebaju nam divovski džepovi,džepovi dovoljno veliki za našu obitelj i prijatelje,cak i ljude koji nam nisu na popisu,ljude koje nikada nismo upoznali,ali ih ipak želimo zaštiti.Trebaju nam džepovi za gradske opcine i za cijele gradove,džep u koji bi stao citav svemir.Ali znao sam da džepovi ne mogu biti toliko veliki.Na koncu svi ostanu bez sviju.To se ne može izbjeci nikakvim izumom,pa sam se,te noci,osjecao poput kornjace koja na ledima nosi sve ostalo što postoji u svemiru."
Author: Jonathan Safran Foer

Author: Joseph Boaz
31. "Jake's POV: It was just too bad that Chloe was freezing Ally out even though her family hadn't been affected. Because otherwise Ally would be here and maybe I could be making out with her instead of Lisa Freckles. Except that Ally would be making out with David Drake. Was that what they were doing right now? Hooking up at some party? Dorkus Drake got to kiss Ally Ryan whenever he wanted. In what universe was that okay?"
Author: Kieran Scott
32. "We have a language that is full of ambiguities; we have a way of expressing ourselves that is often complex and elusive, poetic and modulated; all our thoughts can be rendered with absolute clarity if we bother to put the right dots and squiggles between the words in the right places. Proper punctuation is both the sign and the cause of clear thinking. If it goes, the degree of intellectual impoverishment we face is unimaginable."
Author: Lynne Truss

Author: Miroslav Antić

Author: Muhammad Yunus
36. "Like navigation markings in unknown waters, definitions of poverty need to be distinctive and unambiguous. A definition that is not precise is as bad as no definition at all."
Author: Muhammad Yunus
37. "Poverty is clearly one source of emotional suffering, but there are others, like loneliness."
Author: Nassim Nicholas Taleb
38. "He saw the human shadows flitting through his second world. Most of them had unkempt beards. Some walked along looking at the sky, others at the ground. All wore shabby clothing. All lived in poverty. And all were serene. Closed in on every side by streetcars, they freely breathed the air of peace. The men in this world were unfortunate, for they knew nothing of the real world. But they were fortunate as well, for they had fled the Burning House of worldly suffering. Professor Hirota was in this second world. So, too, was Nonomiya. Sanshiro stood where he could understand the air of this world more or less. He could leave it whenever he wished. But to do so, to relinquish a taste he had finally begun to savor, was something he was loath to do."
Author: Natsume Sōseki
39. "Hmyz v džungli vás považuje za velké kusy živého, avšak nepríliš dobre hájeného jídla. Schopnost pohybu není ani tak odstrašující prostredek, spíš slouží jako nezfalšovatelná záruka cerstvosti."
Author: Neal Stephenson

Author: Newton Lee

Author: Quentin Crisp
42. "Gerald Boyd was a classic specimen of the self-made man. Born poor, he worked and studied his way up out of poverty under the guidance of his widowed grandmother."
Author: Russell Baker
43. "Tragedy happens - "tragic mistakes" happen - when men act according to their flawed natures, in fulfillment of their preordained destinies. The tragedy of the four killers of Amadou Diallo is that their deeds were made possible by their general preconceptions about black people and poor neighborhoods; by a theory of policing that encourages them to be rigid and punitive toward petty offenders; and by a social context in which the possession and use of firearms is so normative as to be almost beyond discussion. The tragedy of the street vendor Amadou Diallo is that he came as an innocent to the slaughter, made vulnerable by poverty and by the color of his skin. And the tragedy of America is that a nation which sees itself as leading the world toward a global future in which the American values of freedom and justice will be available for everyone fails so frequently and so badly to guarantee that freedom and that justice for so many people within its own frontiers."
Author: Salman Rushdie
44. "Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty."
Author: Socrates
45. "Since Social Security was established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1935 to ensure economic security for American workers, poverty among American seniors has dramatically declined."
Author: Steve Israel
46. "Did you know that nearly one in three children live apart from their biological dads? Those kids are two to three times more likely to grow up in poverty, to suffer in school, and to have health and behavioral problems."
Author: Tony Dungy
47. "...neither fate, nor history, nor the anger of the State, nor the glory or infamy of battle has any power to affect those who call themselves human beings. No, whatever life holds in store --- hard-won glory, poverty and despair, or death in a labor camp --- they will live as human beings and die as human beings, the same as those who have already perished; and in this alone lies man's eternal and bitter victory over all the grandiose and inhuman forces that ever have been or will be..."
Author: Vasily Grossman
48. "Mário regressava à sua obsessão, à solidão do homem, à procura alucinada de um valor que a povoasse."
Author: Vergílio Ferreira
49. "The absolute basic belief that every child of God must come to is that if he or she lives in obedience to God's Word and in joyous harmony with our Father, nothing can impinge on his life except by His permission. To live in close communion with Christ is to experience daily the calm assurance of God's complete care and management of every detail in our walk with Him.No matter if trials or turmoil come. No matter if there is trouble. No matter if there is pain or poverty. Each is for a supreme purpose understood best by my Father, but allowed to impact me for my ultimate benefit, and for His honor."
Author: W. Phillip Keller
50. "The standard of matrimony is erected by affection and purity, and does not depend upon the height, or bulk, or color, or wealth, or poverty of individuals. Water will seek its level; nature will have free course; and heart will answer to heart."
Author: William Lloyd Garrison
