A Quote by Mother Teresa on love, smile, poverty, and charity

You have to do that here in your country. You must come to know the poor. Maybe our people here have material things, everything, but I think that if we all look into our own homes, how difficult we find it sometimes to smile at each other, and that the smile is the beginning of love.

A Quote by Michael Enright on faith, certianty, compassion, hate, intoerance, religion, charity, and belief

"If this faith and certainty makes them compassionate people, that is wonderful and I applaud them, I don't care what they believe, they can believe what they want as far as I am concerned, but if their certainty makes them intolerant, or belligerent, or full of hate, or even murderous as we have seen recently, we have seen an awful lot of religious certainty which is not attractive and which I don't envy, and which I find is a great danger, then that's not ok, that's bad religion, and that is the litmus test. Paul says you can have faith that moves mountains but if you lack charity, it's worth nothing." - Karen Armstrong

A Quote by Muhammad Yunus on poverty, institutions, charity, and opportunity

People can change their own lives, provided they have the right kind of institutional support. They're not asking for charity, charity is no solution to poverty. Poverty is the creation of opportunities like everybody else has, not the poor people, so bring them to the poor people, so that they can change their lives.
