Where Are Today's Wise Men?
Benjamin Franklin said, in November, 1766:

I think the best way of doing good for the poor is not making them easy in poverty, but in driving them out of it. In my youth, I traveled much, I observed in different countries that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and became poorer. And on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves and became richer.


Thomas Jefferson said:

There is no substitute for hard work.


And remember what John F. Kennedy said?

Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.



Where are the wise men today?
