False charity constrains the fearful and subdued, the ‘rejects of life,’ to extend their trembling hands. True generosity lies in striving so that these hands—whether of individuals or entire peoples—need to be extended less and less in supplication, so that more they become hands which work and, working, transform the world.

Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed, p.45
