How to use welfare in a sentence?

  1. David Koch:

  2. Avery Ng:

    Hong Kong is facing a structural problem, unless we have true universal suffrage, and can use our surpluses to have genuine reform in terms of the social welfare system as well as the education system...a one-time sweetener won't help alleviate the anger of Hong Kong people.

  3. Frederick Douglass:

    What shall be done with the four million slaves if they are emancipated? ... Primarily, it is a question less for man than for God -- less for human intellect than for the laws of nature to solve. It assumes that nature has erred; that the law of liberty is a mistake; that freedom, though a natural want of the human soul, can only be enjoyed at the expense of human welfare, and that men are better off in slavery than they would or could be in freedom; that slavery is the natural order of human relations, and that liberty is an experiment. What shall be done with them? Our answer is, do nothing with them; mind your business, and let them mind theirs. Your doing with them is their greatest misfortune. They have been undone by your doings, and all they now ask, and really have need of at your hands, is just to let them alone. They suffer by every interference, and succeed best by being let alone.

  4. Lupe Torres:

  5. Josefine Persson:
