Down and back at day dawn, Tramp from lake to lake, Washing brain and heart clean Every step we take. Leave to Robert Browning Beggars, fleas, and vines; Leave to mournful Ruskin Popish Apennines, Dirty stones of Venice, And his gas lamps seven, We've the stones of Snowdon And the lamps of heaven.
God grant that we may not have a European war thrust upon us, and for such a stupid reason too, no I don't mean stupid, but to have to go to war on account of tiresome Serbia beggars belief.
Political economy thus does not recognize the unoccupied worker, the working man so far as he is outside this work relationship. Swindlers, thieves, beggars, the unemployed, the starving, poverty- stricken and criminal working man, are figures which do not exist for political economy, but only for other eyes; fordoctors, judges,grave-diggers,beadles,etc.Theyare ghostly figures outsidethe domain of political economy.
A king has no dignity when he exercises authority over beggars, only when he rules over prosperous and happy subjects.
It is not piety that you turn your faces to the East and to the West. True piety is this: to believe in God, and the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the Prophets, to give of one's substance, however cherished, to kinsmen, and orphans, theneedy, thetraveller, beggars, and toransom the slave, to perform the prayer, to pay the alms.The Koran
...to blow you Scotch beggars back to your native mountains.Guy Fawkes
When it shall be said in any country in the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive; the rational world is my friend, because I am a friend of its happiness: When these things can be said, then may the country boast of its constitution and its government.thomas paine
We must not be beggars. Why should we beg? We have something to offer.ziaur rahman
I saw rich beggars and poor beggars, proud beggars and humble beggars, fat beggars and thin beggars, healthy beggars and sick beggars, whole beggars and crippled beggars, wise beggars and stupid beggars. I saw amateur beggars and professional beggars. A professional beggar is a beggar who begs for a living.william saroyan
If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.
"Choosers will be beggars if the begging’s not their choosing," said the Dog.garth nix
Conceit, more rich in matter than in words, Brags of his substance, not of ornament: They are but beggars that can count their worth.william shakespeare
When beggars die, there are no comets seen; The heavens themselves blaze forth the death of princes.
Unless the old adage must be verified, That beggars mounted, run their horse to death.william shakespeare

Sweet are the thoughts that savour of content; The quiet mind is richer than a crown; Sweet are the nights in careless slumber spent; The poor estate scorns fortune's angry frown: Such sweet content, such minds, such sleep, such bliss, beggars enjoy, when princes oft do miss.
beggars must be no choosers.
beggars should be no choosers.
