Thought for the day

You can’t build a peaceful world on empty stomachs and human misery. — Dr. Norman Ernest Borlaug (1914-2009)

This was the quote topping one of the posts over at Junkfood Science.  I have been mulling it over thoughtfully all day.

One thought on “Thought for the day

  1. It’s a great quote & very true. Hungry, unhappy, unhopeful people are all too ready to be led into wars, to express their anger & bitterness & do whatever they think will get them fed. And Dr. Borlaug did a great deal to find ways of producing more food & feeding more people.
