Pre-Election Quotes

I would like to share with you, as election day approaches, some rather interesting quotes that were forwarded to me (though their attribution required some research and editing). They provide a unique historical perspective to the choice that you will be making tomorrow.
  • You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
  • You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
  • You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
  • You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
  • You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
  • You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatreds.
  • You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
  • You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man's initiative and independence.
  • You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
William J. H. Boetcker (1916)
