|Welfare Line, Chicago, 1914|
Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed.
Herman Melville, novelist and poet (1819-1891)
To the point and completely true. Amen.ReplyDelete
I am worried for all who have no insurance and have no shelter, have no job...life is not easy. If ever I have more to share I will do it...twicefold.ReplyDelete
Well said sir!ReplyDelete
Can I have an Amen.ReplyDelete
Scarily so. It's easy to lose empathy when you're comfortable.ReplyDelete
That's so true, very easy to judge from the comfort of your armchair.ReplyDelete
Wow! Never read that quote by Melville before. It is so true. Many thanks.ReplyDelete
Greetings from London.
It is so true of course.ReplyDelete
I went into hibernation with our cold weather this last 10 days...now that temps are above freezing again I can venture out to cyber as well as streetside. Have missed you & will catch up.
Now, how do we get this out to those who are doing the criticizing?ReplyDelete
