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
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
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
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.
Hunger will drive even the wolf from the forest.
I was often humiliated to see men disputing for a piece of bread, just as animals might have done. My feelings on this subject have very much altered since I have been personally exposed to the tortures of Hunger. I have discovered, in fact, that a man, whatever may have been his origin, his education, and his habits, is governed, under certain circumstances, much more by his stomach than by his intelligence and his heart.françois arago
Love is lust made meaningful. Hope is Hunger made human.r. scott bakker
No wearisome days, no sorrowful nights; no Hunger or thirst; no anxiety or fears; no envies, no jealousies, no breaches of friendship, no sad separations, no distrusts or forebodings, no self-reproaches, no enmities, no bitter regrets, no tears, no heartaches; "And there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away."randolph sinks foster
Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as Hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.
The resort to human flesh, often after months of ever-increasing Hunger pangs, appeared to be an animallike reaction without painful emotional overtones.pitirim sorokin
I perceived that I was on a little round grain of rock and metal, filmed with water and with air, whirling in sunlight and darkness. And on the skin of that little grain all the swarms of men, generation by generation, had lived in labour and blindness, with intermittent joy and intermittent lucidity of spirit. And all their history, with its folk-wanderings, its empires, its philosophies, its proud sciences, its social revolutions, its increasing Hunger for community, was but a flicker in one day of the lives of the stars.Olaf Stapledon
The world is rather shot to pieces (end of World War II), 1945), but the spectators climb out of their caves and pretend to have again become normal and customary humans who ask each other’s pardon instead of eating one another or sucking each other’s blood. The entertaining folly of war evaporates, distinguished boredom sits down again on the dignified old overstuffed chairs.. ..May I report about myself that I have had a truly grotesque time, brim-full with work, Nazi persecutions, bombs, Hunger, and again and again work – in spite of everything (using his bed sheets as canvas)max beckmann
If people should ever start to do only what is necessary millions would die of Hunger.Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Art is a substitute for violence. The same impulses that drive persons to violence the Hunger for meaning, the need for ecstasy, the impulse to risk all drive the artist to create. He is by nature our archrebel. ... the essence of the rebellion is in the new way of seeing nature and life.rollo may
It is science alone that can solve the problems of Hunger and poverty, of insanitation and illiteracy, of superstition and deadening custom and tradition, of vast resources running to waste, of a rich country inhabited by starving people... Who indeed could afford to ignore science today? At every turn we have to seek its aid... the future belongs to science and those who make friends with science.jawaharlal nehru
The love of wilderness is more than a Hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need if only we had the eyes to see.
Behaving indecently in public, he said "I wish it were as easy to banish Hunger by rubbing the belly."
