Poverty - as described by Marcus Mosiah Garvey
An important quote from one of the 20th century's greatest philosophers - Jamaica's own National Hero - Marcus Mosiah Garvey
Thank you, Joseph Cox - for sharing on Facebook:
"Poverty is a hellish state to be in.
It is no virtue.
It is a crime.
To be poor is
to be hungry without possible hope of food;
to be sick without hope of medicine;
to be tired and sleepy without a place to lay one's head;
to be naked without the hope of clothing;
to be despised and comfortless.
To be poor is to be a fit subject for crime and hell." - Marcus Garvey.
Let us work to end poverty:
"Work is prayer - do it well
To cool the heat in someone's hell"
- Jean Lowrie-Chin
