A Better East Texas: Abraham Lincoln Quotes

I got an email this week with words that were attributed to Abraham Lincoln. Whether he said it, or not really doesn't matter because to me they represent a way of thinking that will make this a better east Texas. So, here they are:

*You cannot help the poor, by destroying the rich.

* You cannot strengthen the weak, by weakening the strong.

* You cannot bring about prosperity, by discouraging thrift.

* You cannot lift the wage earner up, by pulling the wage payer down.

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

* You cannot build character and courage, by taking away men's initiative and independence.

* You cannot help men permanently, by doing for them what they could and should, do for themselves .

You can always write me anytime by going to our website, kltv.com, click the community section and then a better east Texas.
