People are like teabags; you never know how strong they’ll be till they’re in hot water.
They are as sick that surfeit with too much, as they that starve with nothing.

Women constitute HALF the world’s population, perform nearly TWO THIRDS of the world’s work, receive ONE TENTH of the world’s income, own less than ONE HUNDREDTH of the world’s wealth.
From: Reflecting Men At Twice Their Natural Size.
Sally Cline & Dale Spender (Women constitute half the world’s population, perform nearly two-thirds of its work hours, receive one-tenth of the world’s income and own less than one-hundredth of the world’s property.
United Nations report, 1980)
“Civilised behaviour, I believe, is more often measured by what a person restrains himself from doing than by what he does.”
“When I feed the poor, they call me a saint, but when I ask why the poor are hungry, they call me a communist.”

“Poverty is not a character failing or a lack of motivation. Poverty is a shortage of money.”
It has been said that the love of money is the root of all evil. The want of money is so quite as truly.
The character building virtues of self help are regularly preached by those who do not want to give help to those in desperate need.
We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.

Post 072,, Supergold,, Oh ,so true .
We never know whats beneath the surface ,,so love and compassion,, and Bible principals go a long way ..
A small act of kindness ,,,whether recognized or not, is what makes it a better place, for all of us
And in the end ,,,we all face the same problems in different ways ..
Cheers From Kai
