TR quote on helping and acting

If a man stumbles, it is a good thing to help him to his feet. Every one of us needs a helping hand now and then. But if a man lies down, it is a waste of time to try and carry him; and it is a very bad thing for every one if we make men feel that the same reward will come to those who shirk their work and those who do it.
– Theodore Roosevelt,

 Excerpted from the speech "Citizenship In A Republic" delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910
