I believe this was from Winston Churchill, but cannot find the source...
It certainly sounds like Churchill.

Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance and the gospel of envy. The inherent vice of capitalism is the uneven distribution of blessings; whereas the inherent virtue of socialism is the even division of misery.~Winston Churchill, 1946 - from a speech in the British parliament.

We don't have to be "successful," only valuable. We don't have to make money, only a difference, and particularly in the lives society counts least and puts last.~William Sloane Coffin

Thanks, Zendam - the correct quotation is much better than the one I heard.

I would add "a criminal is one who doesn't have the capital to start a corporation."

And there's very little difference in a bank

robber and a bank president.
