Abraham Lincoln
printer friendly version
Property is the fruit of labor... Property is a positive
good in the world. 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.

(Reply to New York Workingmen's Democratic Republican Association,
March 21, 1864.)
