Famous quotes containing the word franklin:

    That which resembles most living one’s life over again, seems to be to recall all the circumstances of it; and, to render this remembrance more durable, to record them in writing.
    —Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)

    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 (1706–1790)

    It was one of the rules which above all others made Doctr. Franklin the most amiable man in society, “never to contradict any body.”
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)
