Not my quote, but one that has stuck with me...

"My dad gave $50 to a guy who said he needed to buy medicine for his kids. I told my dad he was probably going to spend the money on alcohol or something like that, but my dad said that "whether he was lying or not says something about HIS character, but hearing someone in need and choosing not to help when I have the means to says something about MINE...""

My first time in France about 15 years ago. Bad case of jet lag. Was up all night walking the streets. Finally went back to my hotel at 4am, took a shower, packed, and checked out. Walked to the train station about 6am and right past where I was walking at 4am was an older man with a sad little dog on a cardboard box that read "merci" and a can for donations. All scammers.
