Quote of the day

” You say that money is made by the strong at the expense of the weak?

What strength do you mean? It is not the strength of guns or muscles. Wealth is the product of man's capacity to think.

Then is money made by the man who invents a motor at the expense of those who did not invent it?

Is money made by the intelligent at the expense of the fools?

By the able at the expense of the incompetent?

By the ambitious at the expense of the lazy?

Money is made - before it can be looted, or mooched - made by the effort of every honest man, each to the extent of his ability. An honest man is one who knows that he can't consume more than he has produced.”

Ayn Rand (1905 - 1982)
