The world must come together to confront climate change. There is little scientific dispute that if we do nothing, we will face more drought, famine and mass displacement that will fuel more conflict for decades.
In the arts of life man invents nothing; but in the arts of death he outdoes Nature herself, and produces by chemistry and machinery all the slaughter of plague, pestilence and Famine.George Bernard Shaw
There various news I heard of love and strife,Of peace and war, health, sickness, death, and life,Of loss and gain, of Famine and of store,Of storms at sea, and travels on the shore,Of prodigies, and portents seen in air,Of fires and plagues, and stars with blazing hair,Of turns of fortune, changes in the state,The fall of favourites, projects of the great,Of aid mismanagements, taxations new:All neither wholly false, nor wholly true.Alexander Pope
He grew, and grew, A star-bright sign of fated empery; And all conspiring omens led him on To lofty purpose and pre-eminence. The mountain eagles, towering in their pride, Stoop'd at his beck and flock'd about his path, Like the small birds by wintry Famine tamed; Or with their dusky and expansive wings Shaded and fann'd him as he slept at noon. The lightnings danced before him sportively, And shone innocuous as the pale cold moon In the clear blue of his celestial eye.hartley coleridge
Alarmed by the Famine of 1770, captain John Garstin built this huge granary Golghar for the British army in 1786. The massive structure is 29 m high and the walls are 3.6 m wide at the base. The winding stairway around this monument offers a brilliant panoramic view of the city and the Ganga flowing by.
The Earth sings Mi-Fa-Mi, so we can gather ever from this that Misery and Famine reign in our habitat.johannes kepler
Wealth and want equally harden the human heart, like frost and fire both are alien to human flesh. Famine and gluttony alike drive nature away from the heart of man.theodore parker
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord G, that I will send a Famine in the land, not a Famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the L: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the L, and shall not find it.Bible (Old Testament)
A pert, prim Prater of the northern race, Guilt in his heart, and Famine in his face.Charles Churchill
Thou must be true thyself,If thou the truth wouldst teach;Thy soul must overflow, if thouAnother's soul would'st reach!It needs the overflow of heartTo give the lips full speech.Think truly, and thy thoughtsShall the world's Famine feed;Speak truly, and each word of thineShall be a fruitful seed;Live truly, and thy life shall beA great and noble creed.horatius bonar
The people are beginning to fear that the Irish Government is merely a machinery for their destruction; that, for all the usual functions of Government, this Castle-nuisance is altogether powerless; that it is unable, or unwilling, to take a single step for the prevention of Famine, for the encouragement of manufactures, or providing fields of industry, and is only active in promoting, by high premiums and bounties, the horrible manufacture of crimes!john mitchel
If any good comes out of the current Famine in the Horn of Africa — amidst the pictures of mothers carrying dying babies at their shrivelled breasts and hollow-eyed children with swollen bellies and matchstick limbs — it will be galvanising the world on the need to ensure access to nutritious food for the world’s most vulnerable people.josette sheeran
Were a stranger to drop on a sudden into this world, I would show him, as a specimen of its ills, a hospital full of diseases, a prison crowded with malefactors and debtors, a field of battle strewed with carcasses, a fleet foundering in the ocean, a nation languishing under tyranny, Famine, or pestilence. To turn the gay side of life to him, and give him a notion of its pleasures; whither should I conduct him? to a ball, to an opera, to court? He might justly think, that I was only showing him a diversity of distress and sorrow.David Hume
He is one of those wise philanthropists who in a time of Famine would vote for nothing but a supply of toothpicks.Douglas William Jerrold
About three million must be regarded as middle peasants, while barely two million consist of kulaks, rich peasants, grain profiteers... Ruthless war on the kulaks! Death to them! ... [Class struggle entails] ruthless suppression of the kulaks, those bloodsuckers, vampires, plunderers of the people and profiteers, who batten on Famine.
Naples sitteth by the sea , keystone of an arch of azure, Crowned by consenting nations peerless queen of gayety : She laugheth at the wrath of Ocean , she mocketh the fury of Vesuvius, She spurneth disease, and misery , and Famine, that crowd her sunny streets.
As soon as Mr. [Franklin] Roosevelt took office, the Federal Reserve began to buy government securities at the rate of ten million dollars a week for 10 weeks, and created one hundred million dollars in new currency, which alleviated the critical Famine of money and credit, and the factories started hiring people again.
He who runs away from a fearful calamity, a foreign invasion, a terrible Famine, and the companionship of wicked men is safe.
