„There are those… who enter the world in such poverty that they are deprived of both the means and the motivation to improve their lot.“

—  Aga Khan IV 49th and current Imam of Nizari Ismailism 1936
Context: There are those... who enter the world in such poverty that they are deprived of both the means and the motivation to improve their lot. Unless these unfortunates can be touched with the spark which ignites the spirit of individual enterprise and determination, they will only sink back into renewed apathy, degradation and despair. It is for us, who are more fortunate, to provide that spark.
