Will Rogers on Wealth

 We are known as the wealthiest Nation of all time.
Well in the first place we are not. The difference
between our rich and poor grows greater every year.
Our distribution of wealth is getting more uneven
all the time. We are always reading, "How many men
payed over a million dollar income tax." But we never
read about "how many there is that are not eating regular."
A man can make a million over night and he is on every
front page in the morning. But it never tells who give up
the million that he got. You can't get money without taking
it from somebody. They don't just issue out new money.
What you got tonight that you didn't have last night
must have come from somebody.
