A Quote by C. Smith Sumner on caring, charity, love, and trade

There is a Free Trade System with love and charity being exchanged and caring acts being passed on to others. Example: Leather clad motorcyclists assisting when I was stranded. There are also the consumers who do not pass on the caring acts; they only consume love (not ever quite receiving enough).

C. Smith Sumner (1933 -)

A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on death, debt, honor, hope, hunger, idleness, life, needs, profit, taxes, trade, and wishes

Industry need not wish, and he that lives upon hopes will die fasting. There are no gains without pains. He that hath a trade hath an estate, and he that hath a calling hath an office of profit and honor; but then the trade must be worked at and the calling followed, or neither the estate nor the office will enable us to pay our taxes. If we are industrious, we shall never starve; for at the workingman's house hunger looks in, but dares not enter. Nor will the bailiff or the constable enter, for industry pays debts, while idleness and neglect increase them.
