Quotes on Charity

So long as millions live in hunger and ignorance, I hold every person a traitor who, having been educated at their expense, pays not the least heed to them.

one should not feed a hungry person for a night or a day or give a poor person a dollar, for the next day they will be hungry and poor......instead, the fortunate and the educated should educate the poor and the hungry to grow their food, build factories and particpate in the world the old saying goes, "give a hungry person a fish and he will be hungry tomorrow, give him a fishing pole and he will never be hungry again."
