Benjamin Franklin Quotations

-I have always thought that one man of tolerable abilities may work great changes, and accomplish great affairs among mankind, if he first forms a good plan, and, cutting off all amusements or other employments that would divert his attention, make the execution of that same plan his sole study and business.

-But in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.

-Use no hurtful deceit. Think innocently and justly; and, if you speak, speak accordingly.

-There is no kind of dishonesty into which otherwise good people more easily and frequently fall than that of defrauding the government.

-Search others for their virtues, thyself for thy vices.

-Anger is never without Reason, but seldom with a good One.

-Hide not your talents, they for use were made. What’s a sun-dial in the shade?

-Drive thy business or it will drive thee.

-Write injuries in dust, benefits in marble.

-Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
