„Every man alive in the world is a beggar of one sort or another, every last one of them, great and small.“

"The Beggars" in The William Saroyan Reader (1958)
Contexto: Every man alive in the world is a beggar of one sort or another, every last one of them, great and small. The priest begs God for grace, and the king begs something for something. Sometimes he begs the people for loyalty, sometimes he begs God to forgive him. No man in the world can have endured ten years without having begged God to forgive him.
