Child Beggar Quotes

A coin is turned around before it is handed to the beggar, yet a child is unflinchingly tossed into cosmic bruteness.
— Peter Wessel Zapffe —

Either the gods have power or they don't. If they don't,
why pray? If they do, then why not pray for something else
instead of for things to happen or not to happen? Pray not to
feel fear. Or desire, or grief. If the gods can do anything, they
can surely do that for us.-But those are things the gods left up to me.
Then isn't it better to do what's up to you-like a free man
-than to be passively controlled by what isn't, like a slave
or beggar? And what makes you think the gods don't care
about what's up to us?
Start praying like this and you'll see.
Not "some way to sleep with her"-but a way to stop
wanting to.
Not "some way to get rid of him"-but a way to stop
Not "some way to save my child"-but a way to lose your
Redirect your prayers like that, and watch what happens.

— Marcus Aurelius

A child dragging bent useless legs is crawling up the hill outside the village. Nose to the stones, goat dung, and muddy trickles, she pulls herself along like a broken cricket. We falter, ashamed of our strong step, and noticing this, she gazes up, clear-eyed, without resentment-it seems much worse that she is pretty. In Bengal, GS says stiffly, beggars will break their children's knees to achieve this pitiable effect for business purposes: this is his way of expressing his distress. But the child that lies here at our boots is not a beggar; she is merely a child, staring in curiosity at tall, white strangers. I long to give her something-a new life?-yet am afraid to tamper with such dignity. And so I smile as best I can, and say "Namas-te!" "Good morning!" How absurd! And her voice follows as we go away, a small clear smiling voice-"Namas-te!"-a Sanskrit word for greeting and parting that means, "I salute you".

— Peter Matthiessen

We are so addicted, either to materialism or to transcending material reality, that we don't see God right in front of us, in the beggar, the starving child, the brokenhearted woman; in our friend; in the cat; in the flea. We miss it, and in missing it, we allow the world to be destroyed.

— Andrew Harvey

I would much rather be the trusting child of a rich Father, than a beggar at the door of worldly men.

— Corrie Ten Boom
