Quote of the day

WAKE UP FROM YOUR SLUMBER AMERICA

You can not bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You can not strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You can not help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You can not further the brotherhood of man by encouraging class hatred.
You can not help the poor by destroying the rich.
You can not keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.
You can not build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.
You can not help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

Abraham Lincoln
