“Indolent and unworthy the beggar may be—but that is not your concern: It is better, said Joseph Smith, to feed ten impostors than to run the risk of turning away one honest petition.”
Hugh Nibley, Approaching Zion

Robert G. Ingersoll
“The grandest ambition that any man can possibly have, is to so live, and so improve himself in heart and brain, as to be worthy of the love of some splendid woman; and the grandest ambition of any girl is to make herself worthy of the love and adoration of some magnificent man. That is my idea. There is no success in life without love and marriage. You had better be the emperor of one loving and tender heart, and she the empress of yours, than to be king of the world. The man who has really won the love of one good woman in this world, I do not care if he dies in the ditch a beggar, his life has been a success.”
Robert G. Ingersoll, The Liberty Of Man, Woman And Child

C.G. Jung
“That I feed the beggar, that I forgive an insult, that I love my enemy in the name of Christ, all these are undoubtedly great virtues. What I do unto the least o’ my brethren, that I do unto Christ. But what if I should discover that the least amongst them all, the poorest of all beggars, the most impudent of all offenders, yeah, the very fiend himself, that these are within me, and that I myself stand in need of the alms of my own kindness, that I myself am the enemy who must be loved. What then? Then, as a rule, the whole truth of Christianity is reversed: there is then no more talk of love and long-suffering; we say to the brother within us “Raca,” and condemn and rage against ourselves. We hide him from the world, we deny ever having met this least among the lowly in ourselves, and had it been God himself who drew near to us in this despicable form, we should have denied him a thousand times before a single cock had crowed.”
C.G. Jung

“[...] Rus siperine vardığında, elindeki kürekle vura vura siperdeki Ruslar'dan bir nicesini öldürdüğü için üstüne başına, suratına paçasına kan sıçramış bir er paşaya, "Kumandanım! Şu yaralılara bir bakın! Kolları bacakları artık yok! Dilencilik mi yapacaklar! Biz çiftimizi çubuğumuzu alıp buraya geldik! Bu harp kime ne fayda sağlayacak? Bizler kimin için muharebe ediyoruz! Evime sakat dönersem dilencilik mi yapayım!" diye öfkeyle sordu. Kızan paşa ona, "Düşman vatanını işgal edip karını bacını ananı kerkse, kadınların fahişe olsa, daha mı iyi olur!" diye bağırdı. Bunun üzerine er, "Fahişe para alır, ama karşılığında bedenini verir. Dilenci ise bir şey vermeden, asalak gibi beleşten geçinir. Hangisi daha şerefli! Harpten sonra bu memleketin fahişelerle dolması mı, yoksa dilencilerle mi! Vatan kurtulursa, şeref madalyası verilirken bir tek siz şerefli olacaksınız. Oysa biz, vatanı kurtarırken şerefimizi kaybediyoruz!”
İhsan Oktay Anar, Yedinci Gün
