Globalization has improved the lives of people throughout the world, but it has also widened the gap between rich and poor...Working to end poverty will make the world safer.
-- Robert Alan Silverstein
* "Wars against nations are fought to change maps; wars against poverty are fought to map change."
-- Muhammad Ali

"The poverty and long suffering of farmers and indigenous peoples that I have seen has planted in me the principle that justice must be fought for them."
-- Dewi Rana Amir

* "Poverty devastates families, communities and nations. It causes instability and political unrest and fuels conflict."
-- Kofi Annan

Whether our task is fighting poverty, stemming the spread of disease or saving innocent lives from mass murder, we have seen that we cannot succeed without the leadership of the strong and the engagement of all.
-- Kofi Annan

"Let us work in partnerships between rich and poor to improve the opportunities of all human beings to build better lives."
-- Kofi Annan

"On this International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, let us recognize that extreme poverty anywhere is a threat to human security everywhere. Let us recall that poverty is a denial of human rights. For the first time in history, in this age of unprecedented wealth and technical prowess, we have the power to save humanity from this shameful scourge. Let us summon the will to do it."
-- Kofi Annan

* "Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime."
-- Aristotle (384-322 BC)

* Anyone who has ever struggled with poverty knows how extremely expensive it is to be poor.
-- James A. Baldwin

When you have a spiritual foundation, you look at poverty differently then.
-- Dennis Banks
* We, who have so much, must do more to help those in need. And most of all, we must live simply, so that others may simply live.
-- Ed Begley, Jr.

Poverty is everyone's problem. It cuts across any line you can name: age, race, social, geographic or religious. Whether you are black or white; rich, middle-class or poor, we are ALL touched by poverty.
-- Kathleen Blanco

I know that government doesn't have the all solutions that real solutions do not come from the top down. Instead, the ways to end poverty come from all of us. We are part of the solution.
-- Governor Kathleen Blanco

Think about it: Every educated person is not rich, but almost every education person has a job and a way out of poverty. So education is a fundamental solution to poverty.
-- Governor Kathleen Blanco

This is not about charity, it's about justice... The war against terror is bound up in the war against poverty - I didn't say that, Colin Powell said that . . .
-- Bono

* In these disturbing and distressing times, surely it's cheaper, and smarter, to make friends out of potential enemies than it is to defend yourself against them..Justice is the surest way to get peace.
-- Bono

* Do we have the will to make poverty history?
-- Bono

On trade, our hypocrisy is at its most appalling. Trade reform isn't about charity, it's about justice, and this campaign, Trade Justice is an unstoppable idea.
-- Bono

It wouldn't cost too much to change the rules of trade so that poor countries can work their way out of poverty. But the world's leaders won't act unless they hear enough people telling them. And every day they fail to act, thousands of people die because they can't afford the basics of survival.
-- Bono

Everywhere I go, I see very much the same thing. I see the same compassion for people who live half a world away. I see the same concern about events beyond these borders. And, increasingly, I see the same conviction that we can and we must join together to stop the scourge of AIDS and poverty.
-- Bono

* The combined efforts of millions of concerned citizens could do wonders to help the impoverished. The American people are ready for action!
-- Barbara Boxer
* Peace is something more than the absence of war, although some nations would be thankful for that alone today. A durable and equitable peace system requires equal development opportunities for all nations.
-- Willy Brandt
* Peace is no mere matter of men fighting or not fighting. Peace, to have meaning for many who have known only suffering in both peace and war, must be translated into bread or rice, shelter, health, and education, as well as freedom and human dignity - a steadily better life. If peace is to be secure, long-suffering and long-starved, forgotten peoples of the world, the underprivileged and the undernourished, must begin to realize without delay the promise of a new day and a new life.
-- Ralph J. Bunche
* When you give food to the poor, they call you a saint. When you ask why the poor have no food, they call you a communist.
-- Archbishop Helder Camara


In a country well governed, poverty is something to be ashamed of. In a country badly governed, wealth is something to be ashamed of.
-- Confucius

There was never a war on poverty. Maybe there was a skirmish on poverty.
-- Andrew Cuomo
