Benjamin Franklin – Wit & Wisdom

  1.  An honest man will receive neither money nor praise that is not his due.
  2. Who is strong? He that can conquer his bad habits.
  3. The wise man draws more advantage from his enemies, than the fool from his friends.
  4. Hide not your talents, they for use were made: “What’s a sun-dial in the shade?”
  5. Write injuries in dust, benefits in marble.
  6. Nothing humbler than ambition, when it is about to climb.
  7. Diligence is the mother of good luck.
  8. Fools need advice most, but only wise men are the better for it.
