At twenty years of age the will reigns; at thirty, the wit; and at forty, the judgment.

Take Courage, Mortal; Death can't banish thee out of the Universe.

Benjamin Franklin
If you teach a poor young man to shave himself, and keep his razor in order, you may contribute more to the happiness of his life than in giving him a thousand guineas. This sum may be soon spent, the regret only remaining of having foolishly consumed it; but in the other case, he escapes the frequent vexation of waiting for barbers, and of their sometimes dirty fingers, offensive breaths, and dull razors.
Benjamin Franklin

I am the laziest man in the world. I invented all those things to save myself from toil.

Benjamin Franklin
He that can take rest is greater than he that can take cities.
Benjamin Franklin

A false friend and a shadow attend only while the sun shines.

Benjamin Franklin
When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.When you're down to nothing, God is up to something. The faithful see the invisible, believe the incredible and then receive the impossible.Where liberty dwells there is my country.
Benjamin Franklin

Remember this saying, The good payer is lord of another man's purse. He that is known to pay punctually and exactly to the time he promises, may at any time, and on any occasion, raise all the money his friends can spare.

Benjamin Franklin
The problem with common sense is, it isn't.
Benjamin Franklin

Great spenders are bad lenders.

Benjamin Franklin
The world is full of fools and faint hearts; and yet everyone has courage enough to bear the misfortunes, and wisdom enough to manage the affairs, of his neighbor.
