Qoute of the day:
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it. You don't multiply wealth by dividing it. Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn't first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving. The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don't have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labor."
DR. Adrian RogersFrom Wikipedia:
Adrian Pierce Rogers (September 12, 1931 – November 15, 2005) was an American pastor, conservative, author, and a three-term president of the Southern Baptist Convention (1979–1980 and 1986–1988).
This quote appears frequently on the Internet and is often attributed to Dr. Rogers with an incorrect date of 1931. In fact, the quotation is part of a longer sermon by Dr. Rogers' from 1984 in a larger series titled God’s Way to Health, Wealth and Wisdom, but it also appears as a passage in Dr. Rogers' 1996 work Ten Secrets for a Successful Family complaining that "by and large our young people do not know either the importance or the value of honest labor".No matter what ones political, religious, or social ideology might be the wisdom contained in Dr. Rogers quote should resonate with all. It is sound reasoning, and it is common sense.
