Dagens citat – Nicola Yoon: “They don't know what poor is. They don't know that poverty is a sharp knife carving away at you. They don't know what it does to the body. To a mind.” Originalfotos: pixabay.com. Collageillustration: Maria Busch

“They don’t know what poor is. They don’t know that poverty is a sharp knife carving away at you. They don’t know what it does to the body. To a mind.”

Nicola Yoon (1972) er en jamaicansk-amerikansk forfatter. Hendes citat er for mig en genkendelig beskrivelse af, hvad fattigdom gør ved et menneske.
