thoughts on a monday


You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
abraham lincoln

came across this quote today and wanted to share. that's all. visiting teaching and waiting for the window guys to come and measure today. hopefully new windows are in store for us this winter! hope your week is off to a magnificent beginning!

p.s. making these little yummies as part of our dinner tonight, since we have zucchini coming out of our ears!

That is a great quote by Abraham Lincoln! Also, those zucchini chips look delicious!
