127,155.  We seek the support of all political groups and protection of the government, which is also our government, in our struggle.  For too many years we have been treated like the lowest of the low.  Our wages and working conditions have been determined from above, because irresponsible legislators who could have helped us, have supported the rancher’s argument that the plight of the Farm Worker was a ‘special case’.  They saw the obvious effects of an unjust system, starvation wages, contractors, day hauls, forced migration, sickness, illiteracy, camps and sub-human living conditions, and acted as if they were irremediable causes.  The farm worker has been abandoned to his own fate – without representation, without power – subject to mercy and caprice of the rancher.  We are tired of words, of betrayals, of indifference.  To the politicians we say that the years are gone when the farm worker said nothing and did nothing to help himself.  From this movement shall spring leaders who shall understand us, lead us, be faithful to us, and we shall elect them to represent us.  We shall be heard.  (Worker & Farm & Struggle & Poverty)  Cesar Chavez, The Plan of Delano, 1965

 

 

4,425.  People don’t resent having nothing nearly as much as too little.  (People & Poverty)  Ivy Compton-Burnett, A Family and a Fortune 1939

 

 

108,211.  The cure for poverty has a name in fact: it’s called the empowerment of women.  Christopher Hitchens

 

 

4,437.  Five billion dollars!  Five billion dollars to the credit card companies.  That’s what this bill is all about.  Where do you think it comes from?  People who have gone into bankruptcy.  Who are those people?  They are the people that have the heart attacks.  They are the men and women whose jobs have been outsourced.  They’re the mothers, the single mums, who aren’t getting paid back in alimony and child care support; those are the people who are being hurt!  (People & Poverty & Credit & Company)  Edward Kennedy

 

 

4,578.  Men are convicted of the capital crime of poverty.  We must not allow mankind to be sacrificed to improvements in mechanisms.  (Man & Machine & Poverty)  Lord Byron, defence of Luddites

 

 

5,223.  I want to see them starving

The so-called working class

Their wages yearly halving

Their women stewing grass.  (Work & Working Class & Poverty)  Philip Larkin, A Dreary Little Hymn  

 

 

85,595.  Deprivation is for me what daffodils were for Wordsworth.  Philip Larkin, Required Writing 1983

 

 

6,179.  Right now, in every big city ghetto, tens of thousands of yesterday’s and today’s school dropouts are keeping body and soul together by some form of hustling in the same way I did.  (Society & City & Poverty & United States of America & Malcolm X)  Malcolm X 

 

8,846.  For the first time since the Great Depression, Britain the so-called Welfare State is deliberately cutting back the means of survival of its poorest and their children ... Perhaps the least understood crisis in the last few months has been that more and more impoverished parents can no longer afford to feed their children ... A Child Poverty Action group report last month stated that 5,000,000 men, women and children in Britain now have no more than £1.60 a week to spend on food.  (Children & Great Britain & Poverty & Food)  John Pilger, Smashing the Kids

 

 

49,982.  Contrary to a myth long popular in the West, it’s been the poor of the world who have financed the rich and not the other way around.  (Poverty & Poor & Rich)  John Pilger, War By Other Means, 1992

 

 

49,983.  In rich countries like Britain globalisation is well advanced.  The disastrous selling off of the railways and the creeping privatisation of everything, from healthcare to air traffic control – the financial pages proclaim a booming economy, yet one in five British children grows up in poverty.  There are almost ten million Britain living in poverty ... All over the world, millions of ordinary people are asking why they have no say in decisions that bring hardship to their lives ... Why should we accept a system of winners and losers?  (Poverty & Poor & Globalisation & Capitalism & Economics)  John Pilger, The New Rulers of the World

 

 

19,039.  Poverty is a great motivator.  (Gangs US: New Jersey & Poverty)  The Sopranos: All Due Respect s5e13 starring James Gandolfini & Lorriane Bracco & Edie Falco & Michael Imperioli & Dominic Chianese & Steven van Zandt & Tony Sirico & Robert Iler et al, Carmela to Tony

 

 

19,999.  Debt is a prolific mother of poverty and of crime.  (Crime & Poverty & Debt)  Benjamin Disraeli

 

 

50,008.  I believe that, as long as there is plenty, poverty is evil.  Robert Kennedy

 

 

34,443.  My next term will the beginning of a major effort to deal with poverty in this country.  (Kennedy & Poverty)  Robert Kennedy and His Times 1985 CBS starring Brad Davis & Veronica Cartwright & Cliff de Young & Ned Beatty & Beatrice Straight & Joe Pantoliano & Harris Yulin & Jeffrey Tambor & Jack Warden & River Pheonix & Jason Bateman et al, director Marvin J Chomsky, JFK

 

 

34,651.  ‘In our country are still perishing on a lonely island of poverty in the mists of a vast ocean of material prosperity.’  (King & Poverty)  MLK: The Assassination Tapes, BBC 2013, Dr King in Memphis

 

 

34,720.  The time has come for an all-out world war against poverty.  The rich nations must use their vast resources of wealth to develop the underdeveloped, school the unschooled, and feed the unfed.  Ultimately a great nation is a compassionate nation.  No individual or nation can be great if it does not have a concern for ‘the least of these’.  (King & Poverty)  Martin Luther King junior 

 

 

34,722.  And we’ve been in the mountain of indifference too long and ultimately we must be concerned about the least of these; we must be concerned about the poverty-stricken because our destinies are tied together.  And somehow in the final analysis, as long as there is poverty in the world, nobody can be totally rich.  We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.  And what affects one directly affects all indirectly.  For some strange reason, I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be.  And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be.  (King & Poverty)  Martin Luther King junior

 

 

49,991.  It is a tragic mix-up when the United States spends $500,000 for every enemy soldier killed, and only $53 annually on the victims of poverty.  (Poverty & Vietnam)  Martin Luther King junior

 

 

56,842.  Poverty is not a crime.  (Proverb & Poverty)  Late 16th century proverb

 

 

34,889.  A considerable proportion of the developed world’s prosperity rests on paying the lowest possible prices for the poor countries’ primary products and on exporting high-cost capital and finished goods to those countries.  Continuation of this kind of prosperity requires continuation of the relative gap between developed and underdeveloped countries – it means keeping poor people poor.  (CIA & US Empire & Poverty)  Philip Agee, CIA Diary 1975 

 

34,890.  Increasingly, the impoverished masses are understanding that the prosperity of the developed countries and of the privileged minorities in their own countries is founded on their poverty.  (CIA & US Empire & Poverty)  ibid.

 

 

42,604.  Debt is the worst poverty.  (Debt & Poverty)  Thomas Fuller

 

 

46,030.  Consumption of the purse.  (Shakespeare & Poverty)  The Hollow Crown: Henry IV part II 2012 ***** BBC starring Jeremy Irons & Simon Russell Beale & Tom Hiddleston & Alun Armstrong & David Bamber & Julie Walters & Niamh Cusack & David Dawson & Michaelle Dockery et al, director Richard Eyre, Falstaff to boy

 

 

75,123.  Is this the government of Britain’s isle,

And in her heart she scorns our poverty.  (Great Britain & Government & Poverty)  William Shakespeare, II Henry VI I iii 47

 

 

49,989.  The truth of what we are

Shows us but this.  I am sworn brother, sweet,

To grim necessity, and he and I

Will keep a league till death.  William Shakespeare, Richard II V i 19-22, Richard to Queen

 

 

49,990.  If they would yield us but the superfluity while it were wholesome, we might guess they relieved us humanely; but they think we are too dear; the leanness that afflicts us, the object of our misery, is as an inventory to particularise their abundance; our sufferance is a gain to them.  Let us revenge this with our pikes ere we become rakes; for the gods know, I speak this in hunger for bread not in thirst for revenge.  (Poverty & Poor & Revenge & Hunger)  William Shakespeare, Coriolanus, first citizen
