I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from Hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred. To me, those are the real freedoms on the basis of which good human societies are based.vandana shiva
High up among the branches of a mighty tree she hugged the shrieking infant to her bosom, and soon the instinct that was as dominant in this fierce female as it had been in the breast of his tender and beautiful mother — the instinct of mother love — reached out to the tiny man-child's half-formed understanding, and he became quiet.Then Hunger closed the gap between them, and the son of an English lord and an English lady nursed at the breast of Kala, the great ape.Edgar Rice Burroughs
There are some bored foreigners, with full stomachs, who have nothing better to do than point fingers at us … First, China doesn't export Revolution; second, China doesn't export Hunger and poverty; third, China doesn't come and cause you headaches, what more is there to be said?xi jinping
Lasting peace is sought, it is essential to adopt international measures to improve the lot of the masses. The welfare of the entire human race must replace Hunger and oppression. People of the world must be taught to give up envy, avarice and rancour.Mustafa Kemal Atatürk
As I have said before, the ever more sophisticated weapons piling up in the arsenals of the wealthiest and the mightiest can kill the illiterate, the ill, the poor and the hungry but they cannot kill ignorance, illnesses, poverty or Hunger.fidel castro
The suppressed Hunger to think was like an epidemic.mark clifton
The spirit of Christmas fulfils the greatest Hunger of mankind.
La mejor salsa del mundo es el hambre. Hunger is the best sauce in the world.Miguel de Cervantes
There's many a one who would be idle if Hunger didn't pinch him; but the stomach sets us to work.
The consolations of the vulgar are bitter in the royal ear. Let physicians and confectioners and servants in the great houses be judged by what they have done, and even by what they have meant to do; the great people themselves are judged by what they are. I have been told that lions, trapped and shut up in cages, grieve from shame more than from Hunger.karen blixen
I've been told that nobody sings the word "Hunger" like I do. Or the word "love."Billie Holiday
And the evil is done in hopes that evil surrendersbut the deeds of the devil are burned too deep in the embersand a world of Hunger in vengeance will always rememberSo please be reassured, we seek no wider war,we seek no wider war.phil ochs
I know that as night and shadows are good for flowers, and moonlight and dews are better than a continual sun, so is Christ's absence of special use, and that it hath some nourishing virtue in it, and giveth sap to humility, and putteth an edge on Hunger, and furnisheth a fair field for faith to put forth itself.samuel rutherford
Just as sure as the days go by, Jesus will come to us, looking for fruit; and He will come in personal Hunger, needing and longing for the fruit which we might have ready for Him.henry clay trumbull
I, who loved and knew you, In the city that slew you, Still Hunger on, and thirst, and climb, proud-hearted and alone: Serpent-fears enfold me, Syren-visions hold me, And, like a wave, I gather strength, and gathering strength, I moan; Yea, the pale moon beckons, Still I follow, aching, And gather strength, only to make a louder moan, in breaking!robert williams buchanan
Life is more than a theory, and love of truth butters no bread: old men who have had to struggle along their way, who know the endless bitterness, the grave moral deterioration which follow an empty exchequer, may well be pardoned for an over-wish to see their sons secured from it; Hunger, at least, is a reality...james anthony froude
O love, whose lordly hand Has bridled my desires, And raised my Hunger and my thirst To dignity and pride, Let not the strong in me and the constant Eat the bread or drink the wine That tempt my weaker self. Let me rather starve, And let my heart parch with thirst, And let me die and perish, Ere I stretch my hand To a cup you did not fill, Or a bowl you did not bless.khalil gibran
I saw a dream, Earth safe and green. No Hunger no war, water so clean. I’ll work for the world that I saw, set my mind and say insha Allah.dawud wharnsby
It is only one wolf, but it is howling with Hunger in the bush.
To satisfy the sharp desire I had Of tasting those fair apples, I resolv'd Not to defer; Hunger and thirst at once Powerful persuaders, quicken'd at the scent Of that alluring fruit, urged me so keen.john milton
When a man steals to satisfy Hunger, we may safely conclude that there is something wrong in society. So when a woman destroys the life of her unborn child, it is an evidence that either by education or circumstances she has been greatly wronged.
