Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln

You cannot strengthen the weak
by weakening the strong.

You cannot help small men
by tearing down big men.

You cannot help the poor
by destroying the rich.

You cannot lift the wage earner
by pulling down the wage-payer.

You cannot keep out of trouble
by spending more than your income.

You cannot further the brotherhood

of man by inciting class hatreds.

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 could

and should do for themselves.

Abraham Lincoln
