“Monstrous wars that had killed tens of thousands of innocent people weren’t enough to inspire enlightened self-interest. Tiny loans, on the other hand, were. Money has no religion.”
Bob Harris, The International Bank of Bob: Connecting Our Worlds One $25 Kiva Loan at a Time

“(Did you just suddenly notice your butt just now? Good. You’re paying close attention.)”
Bob Harris, Prisoner of Trebekistan: A Decade in Jeopardy!

“It can be difficult to accept the limits on our ability to help others, and even harder to realize the limits on our wisdom, our kindness, our lives. It may be tempting just to turn away, think the worst of the world, and retreat into selfishness and fear. But, when you help just one person, or let one person help you, it can be hard not to glimpse the better world so frustratingly near our grasp.”
Bob Harris, The International Bank of Bob
