That's not exactly what Lincoln said to his stepbrother in 1848, but it basically is!

CLICK HERE for the full letter (page 164):

"Your request for eighty dollars, I do not think it best to comply with now. At the various times when I have helped you a little, you have said to me, 'We can get along very well now,' but in a very short time I find you in the same difficulty again. Now this can only happen by some defect in your conduct. I doubt whether since I saw you, you have done a good whole day's work, in any one day."

This habit of uselessly wasting time, is the whole difficulty; and it is vastly important to you, and still more so to your children that you should break this habit. It is more important to them, because they have longer to live, and can keep out of an idle habit before they are in it; easier than they can get out after they are in. You are now in need of some ready money; and what I propose is, that you shall go to work, 'tooth and nails' for some body who will give you money [for] it. . . And to secure you a fair reward for your labor, I now promise you, that for every dollar you will . . . get for your own labor, I will then give you one other dollar."

I share this letter because it demonstrates perfectly what we talked about yesterday; government is not charity. Charity can only exist as a relationship between two people.
