There are two kinds of people, those who do the work, and those who take the credit.


Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there.

Work as if you were to live 100 years.

Pray as if you were to die tomorrow.

The humble man

As soon as you begin to take yourself seriously and imagine that your virtues are important because they are yours, you will become the prisoner of your own vanity and even your best works will blind and deceive you.

Then, in order to defend yourself, you will begin to see sins and faults everywhere in the actions of other men.  And the more unreasonable importance you attach to yourself and your own works, the more you will tend to build up your own idea of yourself by condemning other people.

Some of the most virtuous men in the world are also the bitterest and most unhappy, because they have unconsciously come to believe that all their happiness depends on their being more virtuous than other men.

It may be true that hard work never killed anyone

but you never heard of anyone relaxing to death either

One World

We are all citizens of one world, we are all of one blood.

To hate a man because he was born in another country, because he speaks a different language, or because he take a different view on this subject or that, is a great folly.  Desist, I implore you, for we are all equally human…Let us have but one end in view, the welfare of humanity.

A peaceful life, A long life

To live, let live.

Peacemakers not only live: they rule life.

Hear, see, and be silent.  A day without dispute brings sleep without dreams.

Long life and a pleasant one is life enough for two:  That is the fruit of peace.

He has all that makes nothing of what is nothing to him.

There is no greater perversity than to take everything to heart.  There is equal folly in troubling our heart about what does not concern us and in not taking to heart what does.

Wisdoms of Benjamin Franklin

Love your neighbors, but don’t pull down their hedges.

Don’t think to hunt two hares with one dog.

He that is rich need not live sparingly, and he that can live sparingly need not live rich.

None preaches better than the ant, and she says nothing.

A long life may not be good enough, but a good life is long enough.

God heals, and the doctor takes the fee.

If you’d have a good servant that you like, serve yourself.

A good example is the best sermon.

Search others for their virtues, thyself for thy vices.

Proclaim not all thou knowest, all thou owest, all thou hast, nor all thou canst.

If you would keep your secret from an enemy, tell it not to a friend.

John Wesley’s Rule

Do all the good you can,

By all the means you can,

In all the ways you can,

In all the places you can,

To all the people you can,

As long as ever you can.

When someone questioned Calvin Coolidge for his habitual silence

he replied,

“Well, I found out early in life that you didn’t have to explain something you hadn’t said”.
