A Quote by Pope Pius XII on hope, inspiration, labor, losing, men, nations, and work

If a worker is deprived of hope to acquire some personal property, what other natural stimulus can be offered him that will inspire him to hard work, labor, saving and sobriety today, when so many nations and men have lost everything and all they have left is their capacity for work?

Pope Pius XII (1876 - 1958)
