On my mind.

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 further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

~ Abraham Lincoln or Rev. William J. H. Boetcker.


  1. Yes.

    I just wanted to pop over and say thank you for entering the giveaway for my Karma Cards over on the Much Love blog. We've got a few sets left for sale if you're still keen! (cough, shameless self-promotion, cough) ;D

  2. Amen! I've missed you this week.

  3. Like Puna said: "AMEN!" How can everyone not understand this?
