Found this post over at Swap Blog thought it would be good to share with you all today.

“The Ten Cannots,” authored in 1916 by German emigre William J.H. Boetcker, a Presbyterian minister who died in 1962.
• You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift
• You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong
• You cannot help little men by tearing down big men
• You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer
• You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich
• You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money
• You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred
• You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more money than you earn
• You cannot build character and courage by destroying men’s initiative and independence
• And you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.
