Thoughtful Thursday – March 31, 2011

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character & courage by taking away men’s initiative & independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”

~Abraham Lincoln
