Quotations

Erin Brockovich

Quotations 6 E

Most of our citizenry believes that hunger only affects people who are lazy or people who are just looking for a handout, people who don’t' want to work, but, sadly, that is not true. Over one-third of our hungry people are innocent children who are members of households that simply cannot provide enough food or proper nutrition. And to think of the elderly suffering from malnutrition is just too hard for most of us. Unlike Third World nations, in our country the problem is not having too little – it is about not caring enough! Write your elected representatives and promote support for the hungry.” 

Erin Brockovich (American legal clerk and environmental activist)

 

Sheryl Crow

Quotations 5 S

In a nutshell, this United Nations non-profit organization [World Food Programme] feeds millions of starving children at schools in third world countries as an incentive for them to attend school, which in turn might better their futures. They do so much more but I was so struck by this story.”

 

Sheryl Crow (American singer and song writer)

Dr. Walden Bello

Quotations 4 W

The fact is that there is enough food in the world for everyone. But tragically, much of the world's food and land resources are tied up in producing beef and other livestock – food for the well off – while millions of children and adults suffer from malnutrition and starvation.”

 

Dr. Walden Bello (Filipino author, academic, and political analyst)

Jeff Bridges

35 million people in the U.S. are hungry or don't know where their next meal is coming from, and 13 million of them are children. If another country were doing this to our children, we'd be at war. ”

Carl G. Jung

Quotations 3 C.G

 

“When we must deal with problems, we resist trying the way that leads through obscurity and darkness. We wish to hear only of unequivocal results, and we forget that these results can only be achieved when we venture into - and emerge again from - the darkness of uncertainty and confusion.”

Yōko Ogawa

Quotations 6 Yoko Ogawa

“Solving a problem for which you know there’s an answer is like climbing a mountain with a guide, along a trail someone else has laid. In mathematics, the truth is somewhere out there in a place no one knows, beyond all the beaten paths. And it’s not always at the top of the mountain. It might be in a crack on the smoothest cliff or somewhere deep in the valley.” 

Yōko Ogawa (Japanese writer)
