Quote from Benjamin Franklin,

"Repeal that [welfare] law,
and you will soon see a change in their manners. ...
Six days shalt thou labor,
though one of the old commandments long treated as out of date,
will again be looked upon as a respectable precept;
industry will increase, and with it plenty among the lower people;
their circumstances will mend,
and more will be done for their happiness
by inuring them to provide for themselves,
than could be done by dividing all your estates among them."


Benjamin Franklin (more quotes by Benjamin Franklin or books by/about Benjamin Franklin)

(1706-1790) US Founding Father
