A Quote Homeless Shelter Administrators Should Consider

HMLS New Yorker

“[Although this system] functions at a high level of technological efficiency, it is an illegitimate system, since it rests upon the suffering of humans who are as worthy and dignified as those who do not suffer.” -Huey Newton

[SIDEBAR: Although the aforementioned quote is apropos to homelessness, I would never describe any parts of the homeless shelter system in NYC as functioning on a “high level.” SMH! The only thing that is high-level about that system is its treachery!]


Steve Harvey On Being Homeless


“I sat down and started crying, but a voice said, ‘If you keep going, I’m going to take you places you’ve never been. It was like God said, ‘Don’t quit, you’re almost there.’…I’m running from homelessness. I can’t ever be in that position again…In every single moment of adversity in your life, two things are going to happen: There’s going to be a lesson and there’s going to be a blessing. If you let the adversity crumble you, you will lay there and wallow in the failure, but life is 10 percent what happened and 90 percent what you’re going to do about it.” -Steve Harvey
