Wisdom by William J. H. Boetcker

~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 men's initiative and independence.

~You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

William J. H. Boetcker (1873 – 1962)
