"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Pam Rios said...

Books Books glorious books! this reminds me, I need to get my brother to build me some bookshelves. I've been in this house for a year plus and still have boxes of books out in the garage! pitiful!

Humble wife said...

Susan-sometimes I wonder what life would be like without books...sigh..very sad inded.

Pam-yes you do. Do you want me to call him to make your shelves??? lol

Gayle said...

That's quite of list in 2012. I honestly can't remember the last time I read. That makes me kind of sad and I think it's time for me to make a list, too. :) You are always an inspiration.

Humble wife said...

Gayle...the list is key. I do try and set aside time to do things, even if early in the morning or in the evening. You have littles still that require more of your time. Don't worry you will have time as you know how fast the kiddos grow. :)
