    Very wise words........to heed.



    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

    [SIZE=+0]You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=+0]You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=+0]You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=+0]You cannot build character and courage by taking away men's initiative and independence.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=+0]You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.[/SIZE]
