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