"When wealth is passed of as merit, bad luck is seen as character. This is how ideologues justify punishing the sick and the poor. But poverty is neither a crime nor a character flaw. Stigmatize those who let people die, not those who struggle to live."
"In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity."
"When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost."
