Text:

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 right,
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than you earn,
You cannot build character and courage by taking away man’s iniative and independence,
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
