The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.  (FDR)

Whoever has two coats must share with anyone who has none; and whoever has food must do likewise.  (John the Baptist)

God has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts. God has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly; God has filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away empty.  (Mary of Nazareth)

But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the disabled, the lame, and the blind.  And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you.  (Jesus)
