Quote by Pearl S. Buck

Hunger makes a thief of any man.

Hunger makes a thief of any man.


This quote means that extreme hunger can drive a person to behave in immoral and desperate ways, such as stealing. When someone is starving and desperate to satisfy their hunger, they may resort to theft as a means to survive. It suggests that the instinct for self-preservation can override one's moral compass and lead them to engage in actions they typically wouldn't consider.
