You can not strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You can not bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You can not lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You can not further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You can not build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence.
You can not help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
