Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.
We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.
Well done is better than well said.
The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.

Time for some wisdom by Ben Franklin, one of the Founding Fathers and an all-round talent (1706 – 1790). You can find another of his quotes here.
Love Ben Franklin quotes. Think there’s at least one on your post that I had not seen before. Thanks! 😊
He sounds and so many famous ones. Death and taxes was the the first one of his I heard and still so true. That first one should be above every writer’s desk.
Ah, my favorite forefather! I love his biography, his maxims, his wise approach to life–everything. What a wacky, great guy!
He sure sounds a character. Can you imagine going back in time and having a chat with him?
Lots of great stuff here, but this is my favorite…

Philadelphia’s original hometown hero. He certainly had a lot of wisdom to pass on!
I didn’t not know he was from there. Does he have a really good statue?
Several! At the Franklin Institute (Science Museum) there’s a Memorial Statue. And a couple more around town.
That’s really cool.
Perhaps my favourite Founding Father. Did you know he was a fashion icon in France?
I did not know that! The things I learn from the blogging community 😃
Too smart dude 🤓😜
Ah thanks. Oh no wait you mean him 😛
Nice share, these quotes are very much appealing.
I’m glad you liked them. Thanks for stopping by.
Love all of these.
