    "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."

    The Ten Cannots!
    Wrongly attributed on some occasions to Abraham Lincoln however it was Rev. W.J.H. Boetcker in 1916.

    The answer I would have thought was the first answer given:
    Dr. Adrian Pierce Rogers (September 12, 1931 – November 15, 2005) of Love Worth Finding Ministries, Pastor Emeritus of Bellevue Baptist Church.

    When I recieved this passage in an e mail it was attributed to Thomas Jefferson.

    However after getting Klink's answer and Spidge's retort I did a google and they tell me it was penned by Dr. Adrian Pierce Rogers.
