15 Extraordinary Quotes From A Man Who Changed The World

extraordinary quotes - benjamin franklin

Benjamin Franklin


A founding father of America, you’d be hard-pressed to find something amazing that Benjamin Franklin didn’t do in his lifetime. Here’s 15 of his extraordinary quotes to live by:


“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”


“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”


“Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.”


“Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”


“We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.”


“Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to product happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.”


“With continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.”


“Well done is better than well said.”


“Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame.”


“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”


“In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”


“Beware of little expenses. A small leak will sink a great ship.”


“By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail.”


“Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain – and most fools do.”


“The constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.”



A small peek into Franklins mind, here are 13 virtues of character he followed, listed from his autobiography:


  1. Temperance Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation.
  2. Silence Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.
  3. Order Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.
  4. Resolution Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.
  5. Frugality Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing.
  6. Industry Lose no time; be always employ’d in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.
  7. Sincerity Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and, if you speak, speak accordingly.
  8. Justice Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty.
  9. Moderation Avoid extremes; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve.
  10. Cleanliness Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, clothes, or habitation.
  11. Tranquility Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.
  12. Chastity Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dullness, weakness, or the injury of your own or another’s peace or reputation.
  13. Humility Imitate Jesus and Socrates.
