Muhammad Yunus Quote: “They said, we have education, but what about jobs? So I started telling them, you should be taking a pledge, and the pledge should be: ‘I’m not a job seeker; I’m a job giver.’ Prepare yourself to be a job giver.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Some people think that poor people are lazy. Actually, it takes a lot of work to survive when you are dirt-poor.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “What we are trying to do is to create a social business in Bangladesh, a joint venture to create restaurants for common people. Good, healthy food at affordable prices so that people don’t have to opt for food that is unhealthy and unhygienic.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “In a bird’s eye view you tend to survey everything and decide on a particular point, then you swoop down and pick it up. In a worms eye view you don’t have that advantage of looking at everything.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “One day our grandchildren will go to museums to see what poverty was like.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Each of us has much more hidden inside us than we have had a chance to explore. Unless we create an environment that enables us to discover the limits of our potential, we will never know what we have inside of us.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Young people should think in a different way – they should be job givers not job seeker.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “To overcome poverty and the flaws of the economic crisis in our society, we need to envision our social life. We have to free our mind, imagine what has never happened before and write social fiction. We need to imagine things to make them happen. If you don’t imagine, it will never happen.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Human beings have enormous resilience.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Truly affordable but high-quality health care tools and services are the only means by which quality health care can be provided to all.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “The profit orientation is only one orientation of a person. The same people who are interested in profit-making are also selfless. I am not saying that capitalist theory is wrong. I am saying that it has not been interpreted and practiced fully.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “I am proposing to create another kind of business, based on “selflessness” that is in all of us. I am calling it social business.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “My experience working in the Grameen Bank has given me faith; an unshakable faith in the creativity of human beings. It leads me to believe that humans are not born to suffer the misery of hunger and poverty. They suffer now as they did in the past because we turn our heads away from this issue.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “I will not spend the money for myself. I will rather spend it in special business on a no-profit-no-loss policy. We will also establish an eye hospital where even beggars will be given treatment at the cost of Taka 10-20.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “When you get a mobile phone it is almost like having a card to get you out of poverty in a couple of years.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Money begets money. If you don’t have that, you wait around to be hired by somebody at the mercy of others. If you have that money in your hand, you desperately try to make the best use of it and move ahead. And that’s generating income for yourself.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “If I could be useful to another human being, even for a day, that would be a great thing. It would be greater than all the big thoughts I could have at the university.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Even today we don’t pay serious attention to the issue of poverty, because the powerful remain relatively untouched by it. Most people distance themselves from the issue by saying that if the poor worked harder, they wouldn’t be poor.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “I’m on the faculty. I teach. And it’s not easy for a poor person to enter the campus to track down the professor in the campus in a Bangladesh situation. They all will be stopped at the gate. You have no business in the university!”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “The current financial crisis makes it very clears that the system that we have isn’t really working, and this is the right time for us to undo things and build them in a new way.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Peace should be understood in a human way – in a broad social, political and economic way. Peace is threatened by unjust economic, social and political order, absence of democracy, environmental degradation and absence of human rights.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Long live Grameen Bank. Let the power of poor women prevail.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Microcredit has shown how you can reach out to people that conventional banking cannot. It has demonstrated that it’s a doable proposition.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Policies are also to blame: the only thing that the governments and people can come up with to give to the poor people is charity. Poor people get hand outs from the state. But this is not a solution to poverty.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “We prepare our students for jobs and careers, but we don’t teach them to think as individuals about what kind of world they would create.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “The challenge I set before anyone who condemns private-sector business is this: If you are a socially conscious person, why don’t you run your business in a way that will help achieve social objectives?”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Capitalism has been interpreted as an exclusively profit-centric human engagement. Some have been saying to bring people and planet into the picture. This can be a good change, but it is still not fully operationalized. Are you putting people, planet and profit at the same level?”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “In this world of plenty, a tiny baby, who does not yet understand the mystery of the world, is allowed to cry and cry and finally fall asleep without the milk she needs to survive.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “A university should not be an island where academics attain higher and higher levels of knowledge without sharing any of this knowledge with its neighbours.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “The process of breaking down fear was always my greatest challenge and it was made easier by the careful work and gentle voices of my female workers.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Health care can be made more affordable for the poor without requiring major new scientific developments, just the smart application of current technologies. We have seen a $25 incubator and diagnostic instruments that are built tough, cheap, and reusable for the developing world.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “So i say, change the base! If you change the base, anybody will be as tall as anybody else! My belief is poverty is not caused by poor ppl. Poverty is caused by the system. Poverty is caused by the policies that we pursue.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “I said peace is sometimes narrowly interpreted; it’s the absence of conflict between nations or something. But peace is more inherent, more basic to human life, human beings, what we feel about each other, what we feel about life around us and what we see in our future.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Credit markets were originally created to serve human needs; to provide businesses and individuals with capital to start or expand businesses or fulfill other financial needs.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Soon we saw that money going to women brought much more benefit to the family than money going to the men. So we changed our policy and gave a high priority to women. As a result, now 96% of our four million borrowers in Grameen Bank are women.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “But we have created a society that does not allow opportunities for those people to take care of themselves because we have denied them those opportunities.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “The Grameen Bank Ordinance with amendments up to 2008 is a beautiful legal structure for the fulfillment of the ideals and objectives of the bank. Any change in this structure will be devastating for the bank.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “We will make yogurt with all kinds of nutritious elements. We want to provide nutrition to the poor and children.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “I’m finding that knocking at their mindsets is hard work. A simple knock will not make it crawl. I was trying to push it. I was trying to find a bird’s eye view where I could find a big solution. So this is what I was trying.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “I had no idea that I would ever get involved with something like lending money to poor people, given the circumstances in which I was working in Bangladesh.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “If the basic structure of Grameen is changed, the worry is that the poor women who are the rightful owners of the bank will be disenfranchised.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “I went to the bank and proposed that they lend money to the poor people. The bankers almost fell over.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Today, if you look at financial systems around the globe, more than half the population of the world – out of six billion people, more than three billion – do not qualify to take out a loan from a bank. This is a shame.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “Here we were talking about economic development, about investing billions of dollars in various programs, and I could see it wasn’t billions of dollars people needed right away.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “We can remove poverty from the surface of the earth only if we can redesign our institutions – like the banking institutions, and other institutions; if we redesign our policies, if we look back on our concepts, so that we have a different idea of poor people.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “They explained to me that the bank cannot lend money to poor people because these people are not creditworthy.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “The crisis is the price for the capitalist system.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “I wanted to give money to people like this woman so that they would be free from the moneylenders to sell their product at the price which the markets gave them – which was much higher than what the trader was giving them.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “We have done some of these in Bangladesh. Whenever I see a problem, I immediately go and create a company. That’s what I did all my life.”
Muhammad Yunus Quote: “I believe that “government”, as we know it today, should pull out of most things except for law enforcement and justice, national defense and foreign policy, and let the private sector, a “Grameenized private sector”, a social-consciousness-driven private sector, take over their other functions.”
