“I have learned that I, we, are a dollar-a-day people (which is terrible, they say, because a cow in Japan is worth $9 a day). This means that a Japanese cow would be a middle class Kenyan... a $9-a-day cow from Japan could very well head a humanitarian NGO in Kenya. Massages are very cheap in Nairobi, so the cow would be comfortable.”

“My view of the charity world is that compared with business, there is too much talk, way too many meetings and expert panels and blue-ribbon commissions, and not enough action. Or as an Australian friend of mine once opined: "Sometimes you just have to have a go and get on with it, mate!".”
John Wood, Creating Room to Read

“For a nation to be truly transformed, there must be movements, civil societies, NGOs that are spread all across the land to educate people on the issues of Personal Responsibility. If a nation or rather active citizens of a nation could successfully launch such campaigns and a good percentage of the populace begin to live by the principles of Personal Responsibility, which is “don’t blame others”, think of what you can do to fix it. Such a nation would cross the huddle of civilization in a record time.”

“Kavulivwa kaže da su nevladine udruge ljude navikle na konstantno davanje. Odnosno, bijelac je onaj koji ima i daje novac. Kad takva udruga dođe i pokrene, primjerice, tečaj informatike, oni ljudima plate i prijevoz i obrok, ali i džeparac iz svojeg budžeta. Takvih je udruga nebrojeno mnogo i one jedan dio dakako daju polaznicima, ali dobar dio odlazi na administraciju i na lagodan život samih organizatora. Oni su tek jedna vrsta termita koja nagriza ogromno tijelo što se naziva državom Kongo. Štoviše, Demokratskom Republikom Kongo, koja je u naravi leno koje se po potrebi daje i iznajmljuje, dok su riječi demokratska i republika tek ures neutemeljen u stvarnosti.”
Hrvoje Ivančić, Iza Mjesečevih planina
