Abraham Lincoln said:
“You cannot bring about prosperity by discovering thrift
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by encouraging the claw of hatred.
You cannot help the poor by discouraging the rich.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they should be doing for themselves.”
Times have changed?
Remember Abraham Lincoln’s comments when you cast your ballet on Tuesday.

Not that it will matter to most, but Lincoln did not say that. It was written by Reverend William John Henry Boetcker (1873-1962).
