Woodsworth Quote

A curse still hangs over inactivity. A severe condemnation still rests upon indifference...We have tried to provide for the poor. Yet, have we tried to alter the social conditions that lead to poverty?

-- J.S. Woodsworth (Methodist preacher, social reformer, pacifist, and first leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation, speaking in the 1930s)
