Good ole Abe

I just thought this was interesting and thought provoking for this time of the year:

* 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 up, by pulling the wage payer down.
* You cannot further the brotherhood of man, by inciting class hatred.
* You cannot build character and courage, by taking aw ay men's initiative and independence.
* You cannot help men permanently, by doing for them what they could and should, do for themselves.

Abraham Lincoln
