Quote of the Day

“This is not about pity. It’s more about passion. Pity sees suffering and wants to ease the pain; passion sees injustice and want to settle the score. Pity implores the powerful to pay attention; passion warns them about what will happen if they don’t. The risk of pity is that it kills with kindness; the promise of passion is that it builds on hope that the poor are fully capable of helping themselves if given the chance…..”
