Words to gov­ern by

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

I re­cently came across the fol­low­ing quo­ta­tion by Abra­ham Lin­coln, and it might be wise dur­ing this elec­tion­eer­ing sea­son for the candidates to heed his 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 by pulling down the wage payer.

You can­not fur­ther the brother­hood of man by in­cit­ing class ha­tred.

You can­not help men per­ma­nently by do­ing for them, what they could and should do for them­selves.”
