Benjamin Franklin's quotes
"Money can help you to get medicines but not health. Money can help you to get soft pillows, but not sound sleep. Money can help you to get material comforts, but not eternal bliss. Money can help you to get ornaments, but not beauty. Money will help you to get an electric earphone, but not natural hearing. Attain the supreme wealth, wisdom, and you will have everything."
"Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. There is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of its filling a vacuum, it makes one. If it satisfies one want, it doubles and trebles that want another way. That was a true proverb of the wise man, rely upon it; "Better is little with the fear of the Lord, than great treasure, and trouble therewith."
"Never confuse motion with action."
"Plough deep while sluggards sleep."
"Rebellion against tyrants is obedience to God."
"Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment."
"So convienent a thing it is to be a reasonable creature, since it enables one to find or make a reason for everything one has a mind to do."
"Some are weather-wise, some are otherwise."
"The art of acting consists in keeping people from coughing."
"The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself."
"The doors of wisdom are never shut."
"The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of our own ignorance."
"The first mistake in public business is the going into it."
"The greatest monarch on the proudest throne is obliged to sit upon his own arse."
"The sleeping fox catches no poultry."
"There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one's self."
"There is no kind of dishonesty into which otherwise good people more easily and frequently fall than that of defrauding the government."
"There is no such thing as a good war and there is no such thing as a bad peace."
War & Peace
"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
"Time is money."
