Ten Cannots by A. Lincoln

Ten Cannots by A. Lincoln

(written by Abraham Lincoln, 12th President of the
United States of America)

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

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

You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.

You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than
your income.

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

You cannot establish security on borrowed money.

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.
