‎* You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

* You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

* You cannot help little men by tearing down big men.

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

* You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

* You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.

* You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

* You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn.

* You cannot build character and courage by destroying men's initiative and independence.

* You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.

Rev. William John Henry Boetcker, 1916
