Ramblings Of A Feebled Mind - Great Quotes

(Random, unedited thoughts that I saved on Blogger while I was ill, originally dated 06/02/05 15:46)

"I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer." -- Ben Franklin, 1766


(This was taken from the quotes on Danegerous, I love that there is a new quote there each time you visit!)
