You cannot bring about prosperity
by discouraging thrift.
You cannot strengthen the weak by
weakening the strong.
You cannot help the wage earner
by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man
by encouraging class hatred.
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot keep out of trouble
by spending more than you earn.
You cannot build character and courage
by taking away man's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently
by doing for them what they
could and should do for themselves.
Happy Independence Day!
I love this country that I was born and raised in,
now, more than ever.
