Lammot du Pont

A Quote by Lammot du Pont on belief, birds, change, experience, facts, honesty, nature, people, rules, wealth, and worth

"Honesty is the best policy," "A dollar saved is a dollar earned," "Look before you leap," "A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush," "The laborer is worthy of his hire," may be scoffed at by some intellectuals as trite copybook rules, but nonetheless they sum up the elementary experience of the race in creating and consuming wealth.... People may change their minds as often as their coats, and new sets of rules of conduct may be written every week, but the fact remains that human nature has not changed and does not change, that inherent human beliefs stay the same; the fundamental rules of human conduct continue to hold.
