Quotes: “I used to think I was poor. Then they told me I wasn’t poor, I was needy. Then they told me it was self-defeating to think of myself as needy. I was culturally deprived. Then they told me deprived was a bad image, that I was underpriviledged. Then they told me underprivileged was overused, that I was disadvantaged. I still don’t have a dime, but I do have a great vocabulary.”
