A Quote by David Sarnoff on belief, day, government, labor, life, parenthood, work, and world

The boy who believes that his parents, or the government, or any one else owes him his livelihood and that he can collect it without labor will wake up one day and find himself working for another boy who did not have that belief and, therefore, earned the right to have others work for him.
