[Inevitably, People Tell Me That Poor Folks Are Lazy Or Unintelligent, That They Are Somehow Deserving Of Their Poverty. However, If You Begin To Look At The Sociological Literature On Poverty, A More Complex Picture Emerges. Poverty And Unemployment Are Part And Parcel Of Our Economic Order. Without Them, Capitalism Would Cease To Function Effectively, And In Order To Continue To Function, The System Itself Must Produce Poverty And An Army Of Underemployed Or Unemployed People.]

Sarah Dunn Quotes

"She knew that what she was going through was nothing special, just garden-variety heartbreak, the sort of thing that poets and novelists had been writing about for hundreds of years, but she also knew, from those same books, that there were people who never recover form it, ones who go on through life beset by a dim and painful longing."

Munir Quotes

"Cinta itu hebat, bahkan lebih hebat dari dunia perkawinan itu. Doa adalah bagian penuturan cinta pada sebuah cita-cita yang belum kita capai. Dia bukan urusan Tuhan, melainkan urusan manusia. Dan Tuhan ada pada seberapa besar rasa cinta kita akan kebenaran itu. Nah, berdoalah dengan cinta, tapi jangan berdoa untuk cinta... Cinta itu dalam dirinya mengandung sebagian kecil rasionalitas, tapi penuh dengan benih rasa yang tidak perlu dihitung secara matematik mengapa dia ada."

Quotes About Vapid

"Why is being a nerd bad?

Quotes About Quid Pro Quo

"They sit beside each other on one of the sofas, Warwick leaning forward with his elbows on his knees, Joanne resting back with her arms behind her head. Never known as advocates of establishmentarianism, they have been applauded, ridiculed, and misunderstood by the media, and, in particular, criticized for their avarice. They have agreed to do this interview without "cabbage" (payment), but generally charge ten to twenty thousand dollars for the privilege. Even so, why should they be castigated for exploiting a medium that has exploited them? They see the situation simply enough: quid pro quo, and hold the mustard." - Author: Antonella Gambotto Burke

Quotes About Without Hope

"Bilbo almost stopped breathing, and went stiff himself. He was desperate. He must get away, out of this horrible darkness, while he had any strength left. He must fight. He must stab the foul thing, put its eyes out, kill it. It meant to kill him. No, not a fair fight. He was invisible now. Gollum had no sword. Gollum had not actually threatened to kill him, or tried yet. And he was miserable, alone, lost. A sudden understanding, a pity mixed with horror, welled up in Bilbos heart: a glimpse of endless unmarked days without light or hope of betterment, hard stone, cold fish, sneaking and whispering." - Author: J.R.R. Tolkien

Quotes About Having A Great Love

"I was sitting in this small coffee shop a couple days ago and I saw this old man sitting at a table across from me. He looked so lonely, so sad. I was too, but it suddenly occurred to me that some people go through their whole lives never being loved or loving as deeply as I love you. Theres always going to be the chance that I could lose you in this lifetime. Theres nothing any of us can do about the possibility of loss. But in that moment, I decided that I was more interested in focusing on the great privilege Ive been given in having you at all. Ch. 32" - Author: Mia Sheridan

Quotes About Calling Someone A Hypocrite

"Finally, he reached his street. It was quiet, blessedly so, and the only sound was his own groan as he lifted his foot to the first stone step at the entrance to Winstead House. The only sound, that was, until someone whispered his name.He froze. "Anne?"A figure stepped out of the shadows, trembling in the night. "Daniel," she said again, and if she said anything more, he did not hear it. He was down the stairs in an instant, and she was in his arms, and for the first time in nearly a week, the world felt steady on its axis." - Author: Julia Quinn

Quotes About Death Penalty Cost

"Since I was a law student, I have been against the death penalty. It does not deter. It is severely discriminatory against minorities, especially since theyre given no competent legal counsel defense in many cases. Its a system that has to be perfect. You cannot execute one innocent person. No system is perfect. And to top it off, for those of you who are interested in the economics it, it costs more to pursue a capital case toward execution than it does to have full life imprisonment without parole" - Author: Ralph Nader
