“Labor is the Superior of Capital”

, ,

Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.

Abraham Lincoln, Dec. 3, 1861

From the speech “Speech to Congress”
