Dear friends,

 

I share with you some of the precepts on Daily Life by Benjamin Franklin.

 

1)*How few there are who have courage enough to own their Faults, or resolution enough to mend them! (p. 7)

2)*He that can compose himself, is wiser than he that composes books. (p.8)

3)*The worst wheel of the cart makes the most noise. (p.8)

 

 4)*Well done is better than well said. (p.8)

 

5)*Who has deceived thee so often as thy self? (p.9)

 

6)*To err is human, to repent divine; to persist devilish. (p.10)

 

7)*Wise men learn by others’ harms; fools by their own. (p.11)

 

 

Regards, Magda
