We cannot suppose that some men have a right to be in this world, and others no right. ~ Henry George

Homelessness is the condition of people without a regular dwelling.

Quotes[edit]

  • There are already in existence sufficient buildings for dwellings in the big towns to remedy any real 'housing shortage,' given rational utilization of them. This can naturally only take place by the expropriation of the present owners and by quartering in their houses the homeless or those workers who are excessively overcrowded in their old houses.
  • The equal right of all men to the use of land is as clear as their equal right to breathe the air — it is a right proclaimed by the fact of their existence. For we cannot suppose that some men have a right to be in this world, and others no right.
  • We have no home—we have no friends,
    They said our home no more was ours ;
    Our cottage where the ash tree bends,
    The garden we had filled with flowers.
    . . . .
    Alas, it is a weary thing
    To sing our ballads o’er and o’er ;
    The songs we used at home to sing—
    Alas, we have a home no more !
