• The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts.

  • Thou shalt not wrest the judgment of thy poor in his cause

  • They that sow in tears shall reap in joy

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat Mother Teresa
