Benjamin Franklin

Welcome to English-Speaking Club. Last month we had a variety of topics discussed: 6.03 Benjamin Franklin
Benjamin Franklin was born on January 17, 1706. He was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States when the country became independent from Great Britain in 1776 and began a new democracy with a new Constitution. Franklin had many interests, talents, and accomplishments. He was a leading writer and publisher, a philosopher, a politician, a scientist, a musician, an inventor, and was a prominent civic activist promoting unity and the values of democracy.
Today we had a chance to get acquainted with some of his quotes that are famous world-wide. But to read the whole saying we had to do the puzzles.
See what the result was:
- Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.
- Never leave that till to-morrow which you can do to-day.
- A little neglect may breed mischief: for want of a nail the shoe was lost; for want of a shoe the horse was lost; and for want of a horse the rider was lost.
