Economic Principles of Abraham Lincoln

  • You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
  • 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 establish sound 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.
