"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."

- Dr. Adrian Rogers, 1931

' "Scientific research is based on the idea that everything that takes place is determined by the laws of nature, and therefore this holds for the action of people. For this reason, a research scientist will hardly be inclined to believe that the events could be influenced by prayer,
i.e. by a wish addressed to a supernatural being."

-Albert Einstein-
his response to a child who had written him in 1936 and asked if scientist pray'
