God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the
fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first
existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the
higher consideration.
--Abraham Lincoln


“If any man tells you he loves America, yet hates labor, he is a
liar. If any man tells you he trusts America, yet fears labor, he is
a fool.”
-- Abraham Lincoln

"Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never--in
nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in except to
convictions of honor and good sense."
--Sir Winston Churchill
