Success Cannot Be Legislated: Who Said It?
Perhaps I should leave these matters to our resident quote bleggar Fred Shapiro, but in this case I cannot resist:
Without resorting to Google, a reference book, or the comments section below, who do you think said the following?
The people cannot look to legislation generally for success. Industry, thrift, character, are not conferred by act or resolve. Government cannot relieve from toil. It can provide no substitute for the rewards of service. It can, of course, care for the defective and recognize distinguished merit. The normal must care for themselves. Self-government means self-support.
Commit to your answer.
And now, a second question:
If I told you the statement above were made by either John McCain or Barack Obama, which candidate would you think said it?
Feel free to enter your answers to both questions below. When you choose either McCain or Obama, please note which man you’re voting for, if either.
