I don't know where this came from, but it sounds good to me. During this political season lets all remember these wise 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 expect to sell more and more of your product or service unless you pay your own workers a fair wage. You cannot further brotherhood by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away a person's initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves. You cannot help people learn to make intelligent choices by giving them a stupid example nor by rewarding stupid behavior.
