Simply speaking, welfare is an impediment to personal growth. Charity, on the other hand, is a virtue.
Ponder that while you digest these observations:
“Work banishes three great evils: boredom, vice, and poverty.” – Voltaire
“Hope for a miracle, but don’t depend on one.” – Talmud
“Argue for your limitations and you get to keep them.” – Richard Bach
Voltaire (1694-1778) – Voltaire is the pen name used by Francois-Marie Arouet, a French enlightenment author. That means he was ahead of his time and unpopular for bucking the guys who had the power. Read his bio and you’ll wonder why no one has made a movie of his life or at least a soap opera.
Richard Bach – Quoted from Illusions; Mr. Bach loosely quoted it from The Messiah’s Handbook. Mr. Bach is the author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I remember Jonathan well and owned the book. It’s something to ponder that JLS was published 42 years ago. Argh… get out the wrinkle cream.
