Ben Franklin

I love good quotes. I think there is so much we can learn from them.

One of the most quotable of people in America's history is Ben Franklin. Here are just a few of his nuggets of wisdom (I challenge you to chew on these today):

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."

"Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security, will deserve neither and lose both."

"Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late."

"All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immoveable, those that are moveable, and those that move."

"Words may show a man's wit but actions his meaning."

"Take time for all things: great haste makes great waste."

"He does not possess wealth; it possesses him."

"Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today."

"Be slow in choosing a friend, slower in changing."

"Well done is better than well said."

If you are also a fan of good quotes, check out this movie.
