Words to govern by
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.”
