Labor and Capital

Who said:

“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.”

-Sarah Palin
-Karl Marx
~Abraham Lincoln
-Groucho Marks
