"Charity is a noble virtue, but to make the whole world an almshouse is carrying it to the absurd. The noblest charity is to do justice -- not only to procure, at the sacrifice of self, in an unselfish spirit, some improvement in the condition of mankind, but compel tyrants to do justice to the victims they have wronged." Edward McGlynn, a New York Catholic priest 1890's.
