Weekend Wisdom: Self-Reliance

I stumbled upon several wonderful quotes from Henry Ford a few weeks ago. Today and tomorrow’s post will feature a few of them.


“The genius of the American people is Self-Reliance.”

Henry Ford

No unemployment insurance can be compared to an alliance between a man and a plot of land. With one foot in the land, human society is firmly balanced against most economic uncertainties. With a job to supply him with cash, and a plot of land to guarantee him support, the individual is doubly secure. Stocks may fail, but seedtime and harvest do not fail.
