·           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 away men’s initiative and independence.
·           You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.


~Abraham Lincoln
