The Free Man's Almanac Quote of the Day
"When the American people can courageously face up to the fact that there is no such thing as something for nothing; that there is no real security without risk; that money cannot be manipulated to produce wealth; that there is no substitute for human endeavor and individual wisdom and responsibility; then, and only then, can we bring America back to economic reality, which in turn will put our feet on the path to sound growth and true prosperity."
—Wallace E. Bennett
