Quote:
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.

You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more that your income.

You cannot further brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot establish security on borrowed money.

You cannot build character and courage
by taking away man's initiative and independence.

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


Any thoughts on this?

Life doesn't grade on a curve.
