Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin

was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States
You will see in this my notion of good works, that I am far from expecting to merit heaven by them. By heaven we understand a state of happiness, infinite in degree, and eternal in duration. I can do nothing to deserve such rewards... Even the mixed imperfect pleasures we enjoy in this world, are rather from God's goodness than our merit, how much more such happiness of heaven!More Benjamin Franklin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
God works wonders now and then; Behold a lawyer, an honest man.More Benjamin Franklin quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Thinking aloud is a habit which is responsible for most of mankind's misery.More Benjamin Franklin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A fat kitchin, a lean Will.More Benjamin Franklin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Do you sincerely declare that you love mankind in general, of what profession or religion soever? Do you think any person ought to be harmed in his body, name, or goods, for mere speculative opinions, or his external way of worship? Do you love truth for truth's sake; and will you endeavor impartially to find and receive it yourself, and communicate it to others.More Benjamin Franklin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
