R0884-6 Miscellaneous – No Man Has Any Right To

::R0884 : page 6::

“NO MAN has any right to live on the toil of his neighbors; no man has any right to be a useless burden on others; no man, unless he be utterly base, will sit down at the feast of life and meanly rise up and go away without paying the reckoning. I need hardly pause to correct this abuse. I trust that all of us, of every rank, of every age, have learned the dignity of work, the innocence of work, the holiness of work. I trust that the very poorest person here present has a healthy scorn for the unworthy indolence of the drunkard, the idler and the tramp.”—Archdeacon Farrar.
