reminder

Post by Doreen on February 22nd 2009, 5:15 pm

During this year let's be reminded of these 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 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.

Do you recognize the author?

It was Abraham Lincoln

Very, very wise words, written years ago and we still
don't get it..... I think we should keep this one going as
a constant reminder to each other of what we cannot do.
