A quote by Abraham Lincoln, 1809 - 1865
- That some should be rich, shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built.
Abraham Lincoln - reply to New York Workingmen's Democratic Republican Association (21 Marc 1864), cited in Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln, Vol. 8, Roy P. Basler, ed. (1953), pp. 259-260
