„You will find out that Charity is a heavy burden to carry, heavier than the kettle of soup and the full basket. But you will keep your gentleness and your smile.“

As quoted in Homelessness in America : A Forced March to Nowhere (1982), p. 121
Contexto: You will find out that Charity is a heavy burden to carry, heavier than the kettle of soup and the full basket. But you will keep your gentleness and your smile. It is not enough to give soup and bread. This the rich can do. You are the servant of the poor, always smiling and good-humored. They are your masters, terribly sensitive and exacting master you will see and the uglier and the dirtier they will be, the more unjust and insulting, the more love you must give them. It is only for your love alone that the poor will forgive you the bread you give to them.

I could be your state and I could be your nation

Contexto: Why don’t we just sit and stare and do nothing?
Nothing at all for a while
I like the way you smile
I could be your state and I could be your nation
It doesn’t get better than home, now does it?
