Brilliant words.

Here are the wise words of Adrian Rogers who in 1931 wrote the five best sentences you'll ever read.

"You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea 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 it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."

Very wise words written more than 75 years ago & as important today as they were then.
