Famous quotes containing the word franklin:

    We are more thoroughly an enlightened people, with respect to our political interests, than perhaps any other under heaven. Every man among us reads, and is so easy in his circumstances as to have leisure for conversations of improvement and for acquiring information.
    —Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)

    Most people dislike vanity in others, whatever share they have of it themselves; but I give it fair quarter, wherever I meet with it, being persuaded that it is often productive of good to the possessor, and to others who are within his sphere of action: and therefore, in many cases, it would not be altogether absurd if a man were to thank God for his vanity among the other comforts of life.
    —Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)

    No nation was ever ruined by trade.
    —Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790)
