You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
William J. H. Boetcker

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
Source: quoting Abraham Lincoln
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away men's initiative and independence.
You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
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.
