I’ve decided to add a weekly quote drop to the blog that I’ll post every Wednesday morning(yes I know today is thurs)…It will be tagged under “QUOTE” if you want to ever go back to the archives and find stuff. The idea here is simple, historical or current quotes will be have some sort of relevance or significance to what I am trying to get across…I can’t possibly try to explain each one individually but hopefully if you are reading me consistently enough the tie-in of the quotes to the direction of this blog will all make perfect sense…ENJOY!!!
“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
— Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
-U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, Nov. 21, 1864
