Who Said It?

In Uncategorized on Saturday, November 1, 2008 at 7:06 pm

During this election time let’s be reminded of these words:

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