A little Ben Franklin to celebrate the 4th.
“A good Example is the best Sermon.”
“Wise Men learn by others’ harms; Fools by their own.”
“Laziness travels so slowly that Poverty soon overtakes him.”
“Life with Fools consists in Drinking; with the wise Man, living’s Thinking.”
“The second Vice is Lying; the first is running in Debt.”
“Let no pleasure tempt thee, no profit allure thee, no ambition corrupt thee, no example sway thee, no persuasion move thee, to do any thing which thou knowest to be evil; so shalt thou always live jollily; for a good conscience is a continual Christmas.”
