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

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
Most men believe that it would benefit them if they could get a little from those who have more. How much more would it benefit them if they would learn a little from those who know more.
You cannot raise a man up by calling him down.
If you want to know how rich you really are, find out what would be left of you tomorrow if you should lose every dollar you own tonight?
We will never have real safety and security for the wage earners unless we provide for safety and security for the wage payers and the wage savers, investors, and then, by all means, protection for both against reckless wasters and wage spenders.
