What Peter Maurin would have said 100 days into office

Peter Maurin at St. Isidore's Farm, Aitkin MN 1941
 The world would be better off

if people tried to become better.

And people would become


if they stopped trying to become

better off.

For when everybody tries to

become better off

nobody is better off.

But when everybody tries to

become better,

everybody is better off.

Everybody would be rich

if nobody tried to become richer.

And nobody would be poor

If everybody tried to be the


And everybody would be what

he ought to be

if everybody tried to be

what he wants the other fellow

to be.
