Quotes – 1916

I love good quotes. This one is from 1916 but sounds like it is from today’s media.

What do you think?

“You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. you cannot keep out of financial trouble by spending more than you earn. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer. You cannoth further the brotherhood or sisterhood of man by encouraging class hatred. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot build character and courage by taking away initiative and independence.” Rev. Wm John Henry Boetcker, The American Charter, 1916
