"I have always thought that one man of tolerable abilities may work great changes, and accomplish great affairs among mankind, if he first forms a good plan, and, cutting off all amusements or other employments that would divert his attention, makes the execution of that same plan his sole study and business." ~ Benjamin Franklin. This quote sums up the life and character of Ben Franklin very well. Most American children learn about Ben Franklin in school, but I would wager that most American adults remember little about his fascinating life. From our modern day fire departments, to our library system and public hospitals, Ben Franklin invented or played a part in the creation of much of what we take for granted in our society. The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is a must-read book full of timeless wisdom on successful living.
