Words From The Past
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. -- Benjamin Franklin (from here)

How do we explain something to another person that they simply will not understand? Why won’t they understand? Apparently, they choose not to understand. For a better understanding of this subject, check out Anchors, strangers, and voices oh my by ColorStorm. It is extremely … Continue reading
