Wealth
Engrave this Quote THERE was a man in our town, and he was wondrous rich;
He gave away his millions to the colleges and sich;
And people cried: The hypocrite! He ought to understand
The ones who really need him are the children of this land.
When Andrew Croesus built a home for children who were sick,
The people said they rather thought he did it as a trick,
And writers said: He thinks about the drooping girls and boys,
But what about conditions with the men whom he employs?
There was a man in our town who said that he would share
His profits with his laborers, for that was only fair,
And people said: Oh, isn't he the shrewd and foxy gent?
It cost him next to nothing for that free advertisement.
There was a man in our town who had the perfect plan
To do away with poverty and other ills of man,
But he feared the public jeering, and the folks who would defame him,
So he never told the plan he had, and I can hardly blame him.

-Franklin Pierce Adams, So Shines a Good Deed in a Naughty World
Engrave this Quote The rich man has his motor car,
His country and his town estate
He smokes a fifty-cent cigar
And jeers at fate.
Yet though my lamp burn low and dim,
Though I must slave for livelihood,
Think you that I would change with him?
You bet I would!
